Lacey Turner has been cast as a secret witch in a new ITV2 drama. The former EastEnders star - who played Stacey Branning in the soap - will appear in Switch as one of four 'fun-loving, free-spirited' witches who cast spells from 'behind the curtains' of their Camden Town home. Nina Toussaint-White, whose credits include Sydney in EastEnders, ex-Hollyoaks star Hannah Tointon and Black Mirror actress Phoebe Fox play her flatmates and fellow secret witches in the ITV2 drama. ITV's Drama Commissioner Laura Mackie described Switch as a 'contemporary series about friendship with a spell-binding twist'. "We're delighted with the direction the series takes," she added. Executive producer Rob Pursey said: "Switch is 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..." The six-part drama will go into production in London, Cardiff and Bristol for 11 weeks from April 2012.
