Patsy Palmer to reprise Bianca Jackson role in EastEnders

Patsy Palmer is returning to EastEnders as Bianca Jackson for a short stint.

Having recently broken up with Terry, Bianca will receive a visit in Milton Keynes from her stepdaughter Whitney (Shona McGarty) and her partner Zack (James Farrar).

Speaking of her return, Patsy Palmer said:

“I’m so excited to be reprising the role of Bianca. EastEnders holds such a special place in my heart so it’s always a pleasure to be back.”

Bianca, the daughter of Carol Jackson, made her debut in 1993, and immediately made an impact due to her fiery and outspoken nature. Her memorable storylines include the discovery that David Wicks was her dad, her tumultuous relationship with Ricky Butcher and Whitney’s abuse within the family storyline which aired in 2008.

Patsy previously played the role between 1993-1999 and 2008-2014, returning briefly in 2019.

In 2014, the actress moved from England to California, where she now lives in Malibu. Having rebranded herself as a lifestyle guru, she launched her own wellness Instagram page Good & Proper in 2020. Additionally, she works as a DJ on both sides of the Atlantic.

Patsy has already started filming and her return will air this spring.

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer said:

“I’m thrilled to welcome the fabulous Patsy back to the iconic role of Bianca Jackson. Although the character was last seen on-screen in 2019, Bianca still remains a fan favourite. We know our audiences will be thrilled at her return as she is thrust into the heart of the drama alongside step-daughter Whitney.”

EastEnders, Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer
