POTD: 'EastEnders' exit for Bianca Butcher

EastEnders airs emotional exit scenes for Bianca Butcher tonight (April 27) in a special episode centring entirely around her escalating financial issues.

Bianca finally cracks under the pressure this evening as Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) fires her from the café, leaving her with little hope of settling her debts.

Later, in a moment of madness, Bianca swipes a money belt from one of the market stalls and attempts to flee - but she's stopped in her tracks when the stall holder and Mr Lister spot what she's up to.

As Lister calls the police, Bianca is distraught as she knows that she'll be sent straight back to prison for breaking her probation. To her horror, however, Lister refuses to listen to Bianca's pleas to keep the authorities out of it…

In real life, Patsy Palmer - who plays Bianca - is taking a six-month break from EastEnders to spend time with her family.

Bianca is devastated as she is caught and Mr Lister calls the police.


EastEnders airs tonight at 8pm on BBC One.
