Former Emmerdale star Patsy Kensit is set to play the lead role in EastEnders

Patsy Kensit, who starred in ITV’s Emmerdale from 2004 to 2006, is making a major soap move to BBC’s EastEnders. The London-born actress has landed a pivotal role and will be involved in one of the major storylines going on in Albert Square.

The 54-year-old, who viewers will recognize from her roles as Ricka van den Haas in Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) and Fay Morton in Holby City (2007-2019), is set to play Lola Pearce’s mother. The character is currently embroiled in a heartbreaking and emotional cancer storyline after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Lola is played by actress Danielle Harold, and it was revealed in June this year that the fan-favourite character would be axed from the BBC soap. It follows a number of cast changes implemented by new showrunner Chris Glenshaw with Ricky Champ’s Stuart Highway and Dale Hudson’s Peter Peel.

Former Emmerdale star Patsy will play the new role of Emma, ​​who has never appeared in the soap before. She abandoned her daughter and Lola’s father when she was three years old.

Patsy’s casting comes three years after she revealed her interest in EastEnders in 2019, telling the Radio Times: “I’d love to do EastEnders, my father was involved in organized crime in the East End, so I grew up around villains. That kind of background. I can pull a pint and say, ‘You’re banned.’

Born and raised in Lambeth, London, he has close ties to this part of the capital, and his godfather is notorious gangster Reggie Gray. Patsy’s father was nicknamed Jimmy the Tip and was a close associate of the Gray Twins.

Patsy will begin filming her first scenes in late November, although it is expected she will not be a permanent fixture on EastEnders. However, she will be involved in emotional scenes aired during the festive season.
