Ricky and Bianca set for Albert Square reunion
Following on from the news that Bianca Jackson is to return to Eastenders, it has been announced that her onscreen love Ricky is to make an Albert Square comeback.
Actor Sid Owen was a ten year regular on the hit BBC soap before leaving in 2002.
Though he made several guest appearances over the next couple of years, he has since stayed away from Walford, making this forthcoming return even more dramatic.
Ricky and Bianca, played by Patsy Palmer will rejoin the current cast at the start of next year, though it looks unlikely that they will resume their romance, given that he will arrive in Albert Square with his new fiancé, while she will appear with “a gaggle of kids by different men in tow”, the show’s bosses have revealed.
“Ricky and Bianca were a hugely popular and well-loved partnership on the show,” said executive producer Diederick Santer.
“They are both now living their own lives, and there’s been a good deal of water under the bridge. But could the old spark reignite.”
