TV star to leave show for bright lights of Hollywood

Patsy Palmer is quitting EastEnders after getting some very exciting offers from Hollywood.

Patsy’s character Bianca Jackson became a household name soon after she joined the soap in 1993 thanks to her fiery nature and her rocky relationship with ‘Rickkkkkkky!’ Butcher.

“Patsy is really sad to be leaving the show as she loves playing Bianca and working with (EastEnders) executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins but she knows it’s the right decision at this time in her life,” a spokesperson confirmed.

The 41-year-old actress is said to be swapping Walford for the LA scene to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity with her family.

The mum-of-four is said to have gotten some exciting offers from Hollywood producers and is planning on moving her family over there soon after her time in EastEnders come to an end.

Patsy won’t be leaving Albert Square until the autumn so there’s still a lot more to come from her on screen this year.
