Bianca Jackson Is Returning To EastEnders For A 'Huge' Storyline

Soap fans are delighted as producers announce that Patsy Palmer is finally returning to the popular soap after a five year break. Her return will see her reunited with teenage daughter Tiffany Butcher, played by Maisie Smith.

Bianca Jackson - played by Patsy Palmer - is an EastEnders legend. Whilst daughter Tiffany has been back on the Square for over a year now, Bianca has been nowhere to be seen, despite the fact she's supposed to be living in Milton Keynes - which is only an hour or two from London.

In real life, actress Patsy Palmer has been living a new life in the US, alongside husband Richard Merkell and her three youngest kids - Fenton, 18, Emilia, 17 and 8-year-old Bertie. Both Fenton and Emilia are already well on their way to forging showbiz careers, as they're both signed to The Dragonfly modelling agency. Fenton is also boyfriend to fellow model and daughter of Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber. Meanwhile Patsy's eldest son, Charley, has remained in the UK to continue his acting career, having already appeared in Our Girl and iBoy.

Whilst 46-year-old Patsy has been enjoying her new career as a DJ in LA, it's now been confirmed that she'll return to filming for the BBC soap in just a few short weeks, with her legendary character Bianca arriving back in Walford in the autumn and her new storyline sounds seriously juicy.
