EastEnders' Patsy Palmer's children are really famous in America

This month in Albert Square has seen two of EastEnders’ legend Bianca Jackson’s children return to Walford, with Tiffay and TJ showing up at Whitney’s house and Bianca said to be enjoying a cruise.

The reappearance of the iconic character’s sprogs got some fans hopeful about Bianca returning to our screens.

Unfortunately, this isn’t very likely, as the actress who has played Bianca since 1993, Patsy Palmer, is actually living the high life in Malibu, with all three of her real-life children famous across the pond.

Having played Bianca up until 2014, Patsy has moved to America and is no longer the most famous member of her family.

Oldest son, 25-year-old Charley Palmer Rothwell, is an established actor who has starred as Baz in Our Girl, and opposite Maisie Williams in iBoy.

Charley also appeared in Christopher Nolan blockbuster Dunkirk and played opposite Tom Hardy in Legend.

Meanwhile, his 17-year-old brother, Fenton Merkell, is carving a name for himself in the modelling world and is also said to be dating supermodel Cindy Crawford’s famous daughter, Kaia Gerber.

Their sister, Emilia Merkell, 16, is also a model, with Emilia and Fenton both signed to The Dragonfly Agency.

In addition to her children’s success, Patsy has made a name for herself away from rainy London, finding the Commonwealth Lifestyle Foundation, which works to empower and unite women across the country.

Patsy is also mother to seven-year-old Bertie, who is understandably yet to break into the celebrity world.
