The story of Bianca Butcher’s new whirlwind romance is to be told in a special mini episode of EastEnders.
Viewers will be able to see Bianca (Patsy Palmer) being swept off her feet by new man Terry Spraggan (played by comedian Terry Alderton) in a red button/BBC iPlayer instalment that will air on Friday 8 November.
The episode – which is entitled T & B 4 EVA – is to be shown in the week of Alderton’s debut on the BBC1 soap and will see Bianca and cockney cabbie Terry telling differing versions of how they met by saving each other’s lives.
Forty-two year-old funnyman Alderton was the first signing made by new producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins. At the time of his casting back in August, the comedian commented:
“I’m still in shock, it’s all happened so fast. I can’t wait to get started and I love the fact I don’t have to change my name!”
This autumn, fans will see a smitten Bianca return to the Square after a short break studying fashion design in Manchester. What her family don’t expect is to be introduced to her latest fella Terry, who has brought his whole family along to Walford. But are the lovebirds really prepared for a life together in east London?
