Former EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer hasn't ruled out a return to the BBC1 soap.

The ex-Walford star - who last appeared as Bianca Jackson back in 2014 - told Loose Women: "To be honest, I’d never say never about anything. It’s a big mistake if you say things like that.

"I just feel like there’s so much that you don’t do when you’re in Elstree for 20 years on and off. You could never go in for one episode. Last time I decided to go back, I was there for seven years."

The character of Bianca is currently living in Milton Keynes with partner Terry, but since her departure, Palmer has been living in the US with husband Richard Merkell and children Fenton, Emelia and Bertie.

But even though she herself was non-committal about making a comeback to Albert Square, screen brother Dean Gaffney is set to return in the coming weeks as Robbie Jackson.

On the topic of Robbie's reappearance, Palmer commented: "I’m so happy to hear that because I know that he wanted to go back."
