PRESS ASSOCIATION -- Former EastEnders star Lacey Turner and Bafta-winning actress Vicky McClure have been added to the cast of improvised BBC One drama series Love Life.

They join David Tennant and Billie Piper in the series of five overlapping stories created by writer and director Dominic Savage, which has just begun filming.

Turner won a bundle of awards for her years playing Albert Square's Stacey Slater and last year appeared in BBC Three's live musical event Frankenstein's Wedding.

McClure won acclaim for her performance in Channel 4's This Is England 86.

She will play Serena, the first love of Tennant's character Nick, who comes back into his life after many years with Lacey as her younger sister Michelle.

The five programmes look at contemporary love stories and are set in the seaside town of Margate in Kent.
