Eastenders actress Patsy Palmer couldn’t look any more different from her on-screen character Bianca even if she tried on a Greek holiday.

The mother-of-four, who is currently taking a six-month break from the soap, is enjoying a holiday in Greece with her husband Richard Merkell, states the Daily Mail.

She is enjoying a holiday as part of her 40th birthday celebrations and she was snapped looking great in a bikini soaking up the sun.

Palmer was seen wearing a pink and yellow patterned bikini teamed with a pair of high-heeled sandals to show off her slim legs.

She accessorised well with her choice of jewellery going for an armful of bracelets in an array of colours and materials.

The actress also complemented her beach outfit with a long silver necklace.

She was later seen covered up in a black kaftan but she kept her jewellery on to enjoy an ice cream and late lunch with her husband of 12 years, with whom she recently renewed her vows.

Palmer decided to take a six-month break from Eastenders to spend more time with her children and husband.
