EastEnders’ Kacey Ainsworth ‘finds new love with actor after split from husband’

Express.co.uk has reached out to Kacey’s representatives for comment.

According to the aforementioned publication, Kacey split from her plumber husband of 18 years sometime around lockdown, although it has not been confirmed exactly when.

The couple share two children Blossom, 19, and Elwood, 14, who was confirmed to be on the autism spectrum when he was younger.

The mother-of-two recently celebrated her daughter’s birthday with several photos of the pair, while she shared how proud she was of her.

The Little Mo actress also shared an update on her return to EastEnders after her on-screen son played by Bobby Brazier returned to Albert Square.

The star left when her on-screen husband Billy, played by Perry Fenwick, admitted he couldn’t look after her on-screen son Freddie after discovering he was another man’s child.

She revealed on Loose Women: “It’s always the same thing, it’s a never say never.”

She shared that soap fans would “sometimes” still call out her character’s name which was “amazing”.

Having not appeared on the show since 2006, she told the Mirror: “I literally don’t have any time at the moment.”

Her decision not to appear on the hit programme could be attributed to wanting to spend more time with her son.

Speaking on her son’s “excruciating” autism diagnosis, she shared: “I was really shocked, he went to our local communication disorder clinic and I sat behind glass and watched my child being assessed by an ­educational psychologist, speech therapist and a child psychologist.

“It was a sad day because you have a baby and you want things to be normal, you have to go through that grieving process where you think – this isn’t what I’d set out for.”

Earlier this month, Kacey was confirmed to return to the stage to perform the play Leaves Of Glass at the Lidless Theatre.

The Sun reported that Kacey was excited for the role: “It’s a baptism of fire, but I’m here for it.

“My and brain are on fire but I. Am. Bad. A**e.”

Kacey began her acting career in 1978, and originally starred in the West End production of Annie which she reprised for three years.

Since then the award-winning actress has continued to act, including on ITV’s detective drama Grantchester in 2014, playing the role of Cathy Keating.
