Strictly star back in EastEnders

Patsy Palmer on Strictly

You'll know her best from Strictly Come Dancing, but before she was a twinkle toes on the dancefloor, Patsy Palmer was a big star on EastEnders.

Now the 35-year-old actress is set to return to her role as Bianca Jackson in the BBC soap.

Bianca is coming back to Albert Square to live with Pat Evans and will be seen on screen in March.

Patsy was in the show from 1993 to 1999 and returned for a one-off special in 2002, when Bianca moved to Manchester.

The actress said that she is "really excited about rejoining the cast and working with old friends".

Patsy appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2005, when she was partnered with Anton De Beke and made it to week eight.


She showed off her fancy footwork alongside celebs including Zoe Ball, Colin Jackson and Darren Gough - who won that series.
