It’s been over four years since she last appeared on EastEnders, but Bianca Jackson is on her way back to our screens as Patsy Palmer is set to reprise her role for a short stint this spring.

Having briefly returned in 2019, Patsy reprises her role as Whitney and Zack visit Bianca in Milton Keynes following her off-screen break-up with Terry, but it’s not long before chaos ensues.


Bianca first landed on our screens in 1993 as the fiery, sharp-tongued daughter of Carol Jackson and remains heavily connected to Walford through the Branning family and two of the show’s much-loved characters, step-daughter Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) and sister Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy).

Over her 13 collective years in Albert Square, Bianca was never far away from drama having been involved in some of the show’s most iconic storylines including 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.


Bianca’s return will premiere in a special episode focusing on Whitney and the drama she faces in Milton Keynes…


On returning to EastEnders, 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.”


Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer added: “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 continues Monday-Thursday at 7:30pm on BBC One.
