Prepare for a nostalgic reunion as Patsy Palmer dusts off her iconic role as Bianca Jackson in EastEnders after over four years away from the beloved soap. Making a brief return in 2019, Palmer is set to captivate audiences once again as she steps back into the shoes of the fiery Bianca this spring.
The storyline unfolds as Whitney and Zack pay a visit to Bianca in Milton Keynes following her off-screen breakup with Terry. However, chaos is quick to follow, promising viewers a gripping narrative that EastEnders is renowned for delivering.
Bianca Jackson made her unforgettable debut on our screens in 1993 as the sharp-tongued daughter of Carol Jackson. Throughout her 13 collective years in Albert Square, Bianca became an integral part of Walford, intricately linked to the Branning family and two beloved characters, step-daughter Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) and sister Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy). Her character was a magnet for drama, featuring in some of the show's most iconic storylines, from the revelation of David Wicks as her father to her tumultuous relationship with Ricky Butcher and the intense family storyline involving Whitney's abuse in 2008.
Bianca's return promises to kick off in a special episode, shining a spotlight on Whitney and the drama that unfolds in Milton Keynes.
Expressing her excitement about returning to EastEnders, Patsy Palmer shares, "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."
Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer of EastEnders, adds to the anticipation, stating, "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 favorite. We know our audiences will be thrilled at her return as she is thrust into the heart of the drama alongside step-daughter Whitney."
The filming for Bianca Jackson's return is already in progress, and fans can expect the electrifying episodes to hit the screen in spring. Marking her last appearance in September 2019, Bianca Jackson's return is set to reignite the passion of long-time EastEnders enthusiasts who have missed the fiery presence of Patsy Palmer on their screens since her last departure. Don't miss the much-anticipated comeback of this beloved character to the EastEnders universe.
