EastEnders favourite Martin Fowler may have had plenty of drama with former on-screen wife Stacey Slater over the years but actors James Bye and Lacey Turner are extremely close when the cameras stop rolling.
Actor James, 37, even asked Lacey, 33, to be Godmother to his third child Hugo.
Speaking to OK! at the time, the soap star said: "I took Lacey out for lunch to ask her. I was quite nervous and I was getting choked up asking her.
"Bless her, she was really taken aback and said it was an honour."
James also asked former EastEnders co-star Davood Ghadami, 38, who played Kush Kazemi until his character was killed off earlier this year, to be godfather to his and wife Victoria's son Hugo.
The couple also have two other children, seven year old Edward and three-year-old Louis, along with Hugo who was born in 2019.
Hugo was christened in February 2020 at a church in Buckinghamshire surrounded by friends and family.
In 2019, Lacey gave birth to a baby girl called Dusty with husband Matt Kay, who she married in 2017.
James' wife Victoria also told Ok! Magazine that she is excited for Dusty and Hugo to grow up together, as they are very close in age.
Lacey recently returned to EastEnders after taking a break from the soap, following the birth of her son Trilby in February this year.
Her character Stacey has spent time in prison, but recently returned to Albert Square.
Talking about returning to the soap on ITV show Loose Women, Lacey said, "It’s like one big family so it’s so easy to slot back into your character."
Since joining the soap 17 years ago as a teenager, Lacey has been part of some of EastEnders major storylines and with her return to the square.
Now viewers are eager to see what is in store next for her and new character Eve, who has joined Stacey on Albert Square following their marriage in prison.
EastEnders airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday on BBC One
