Patsy Palmer is returning to EastEnders for a short stint as Bianca Jackson.
The 51-year-old actress and DJ, who has already started filming, will be back on screen in the spring.
In the episodes, she will be visited by her step-daughter Whitney and Whitney’s partner Zack.
Bianca, who was last seen in 2019, will return in a “special episode focusing on Whitney and the drama she faces in Milton Keynes” where Bianca now lives, the BBC said.
“I’m so excited to be reprising the role of Bianca,” Palmer said.
“EastEnders holds such a special place in my heart, so it’s always a pleasure to be back.”
Chris Clenshaw, EastEnders executive producer, said Bianca “remains a fan favourite”.
He added: “We know our audiences will be thrilled at her return as she is thrust into the heart of the drama alongside step-daughter Whitney.”
