As ever with Celebrity Juice, the impossible proved possible – and on Thursday night (April 20), that meant seeing Patsy Palmer reunited with her EastEnders castmates. Including Ricky.
OK, so it's not quite the return we're all secretly holding out for, but it'll do, as not only did Patsy receive a lovely message from her onscreen husband Sid Owen, but she was reunited with Phil Mitchell, too!
Sending his well wishes from sunnier climbs, Sid said hello to Patsy and host Keith Lemon, but not before calling him a c**t. Cheers for that, Sid.
Elsewhere in Albert Square (and by that we mean the Celeb Juice studio), Patsy and her fellow panelists were challenged to take part in an EastEnders-themed obstacle course.
Holed up in cardboard boxes, the gang had to navigate through iconic Walford landmarks such as the fruit and veg stall, an unconscious Phil Mitchell, Arthur Fowler's beloved bench and Wellard, who had been resurrected especially for the occasion.
Despite knowing the East End like the back of her hand, Patsy actually managed to finish the course last, but we can forgive her for that – after all, she has been away for a while.
And although she hasn't ruled out an official EastEnders return entirely, it's not exactly sounding likely at the moment.
Appearing on Loose Women earlier today (April 20), Patsy admitted: "I'll never say never, it's a big mistake if you say things like that.
"There's so much that you don't do if you're in Elstree [Studios] for 20 years. Last time I decided to go back I was there for seven years... I don't actually miss acting one bit, I just don't."
Celebrity Juice airs on ITV2.
