Patsy Palmer wants Sid Owen EastEnders return

The actress' soap alter ego Bianca Butcher is to go through a tough time when son Liam joins a gang and thinks it would make sense if the actor who played her on-screen husband, and Liam's father, Ricky Butcher, until early last year were to return for the hard-hitting plot.

She said: "There hasn't been mention of Ricky yet, but I will put it to the writers that there should be, because he is Liam's dad. They're not on bad terms and Liam has gone to stay with him at times.

"And I would like to see Sid come back - there's a lot of comedy in Ricky and Bianca, and it's a shame when viewers don't get to see that on-screen relationship."

Patsy also wants her character to have more scenes with Ray Dixon, the father of her son Morgan, though she insists she isn't interested in a romantic relationship between the pair.

She told Radio Times magazine: "He's a great dad. Every time he steps into that house, he's got that hero quality. I've said that it would be nice to have more of Ray around, but not for anything sexual or as a love interest.

"Usually in soaps, if there's a hunky bloke there it has to be about sex. Same if there's a beautiful woman. But people have got lots of other qualities and I'm sure there are lots of guys who might look at him and think, 'Yeah, I could be like that and make a real difference'."
