EastEnders star Patsy Palmer has said Ricky Butcher will always be Bianca’s real love.
The actress is returning to Albert Square after taking a sabbatical to spend time with her family, which saw Bianca go to prison for stealing. While Patsy has been away, Sid Owen, who plays Bianca’s sweetheart Ricky, has also left the soap.
Patsy told Inside Soap magazine: “I think Ricky will always be the man for Bianca – they’re such a great couple!
“But I don’t know if Sid will come back at some stage in the future – I really hope he does.”
Ricky and Bianca were teenage lovers and have been married twice, but Bianca has had a string of other lovers.
Sid left the soap earlier this year and recently took part in Strictly Come Dancing.
Patsy said: “I’d love to have him here at EastEnders again, but we’ll have to wait and see.
“Who knows? Maybe Bianca could meet someone new one day!”
