Former EastEnders favourite Lacey Turner is returning to TV as an immaculately dressed witch in a new ITV2 drama.

Switch will tell the story of four flirty, rebellious friends living in London's Camden Town, who just happen to be witches.

Turner, who used to play fiery Stacey Slater in the BBC soap, will be joined by Nina Toussaint-White (Doctor Who), Hannah Tointon (The Inbetweeners) and Phoebe Fox (Black Mirror).

Executive producer of Switch, Rob Pursey (Being Human), described the show as: "An upbeat, funny drama about four young witches trying to make their way in the big city.

"They want to live a modern life, not one based on their mothers' old-fashioned rituals. But modern life presents serious problems, and our girls can’t help casting the occasional spell to try to sort things out..."

Turner was last seen on screen playing Lia Shaman in the third series of Being Human and is also set to appear alongside David Tennant, Billie Piper and David Morrissey in new BBC1 drama True Love later this year.
