Monday August 2, 2010

EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer has announced the happy news that she is pregnant with her fourth baby.

The flame-haired star and her husband, cab driver Richard Merkell, are expecting their new arrival in December, a BBC spokesperson has confirmed.

They are already parents to son Fenton, who is nine, daughter Emilia, eight, and Charley, Patsy's son from a previous relationship.

London-born Patsy, who lives in Brighton with her family, returned to hit soap EastEnders in 2008 after a nine-year absence.

Earlier this year her character, Bianca, was seen remarrying former husband Ricky Butcher.
