Patsy Kensit has admitted Emma Harding is a ‘flight risk’ as she prepares for her latest EastEnders return.
The 55-year-old star will be back in Albert Square for a run of episodes as Lola Pearce’s (Danielle Harold) estranged mum arrives to cause more chaos after causing ripples when she entered the soap earlier this year in the wake of her daughter’s cancer diagnosis.
Her habit of coming and going at her leisure caused issues for Lola and daughter Lexi’s (Isabella Brown) lives, and their family were unimpressed.
Lexi is returning to some form of normality after losing her mother, but Patsy’s character is back for another stint.
‘Emma is a flight risk,’ the actress admitted on Monday’s episode of This Morning. ‘She will say and believe everything that she’s telling this person and then walk out of the door.’
She added: ‘It’s cruel.’
After making her debut in January, Patsy has been keen to return and described the BBC soap as her ‘dream job’.
‘I’m a superfan, it really is a dream come true,’ she smiled, noting that she talked about the possibility with her agent. ‘That was really top of list. It was manifested.’
She recalled: ‘It was only going to be a short visit, and then they asked me to come back… I dipped in and out, and it’s been fantastic.’
When it comes to the future, Patsy was asked if the door is open for more appearances after this week, and while she’s obviously keen, she’s not giving anything away.
‘I mean, I hope it to be – it’s up to the wonderful writers. They’ve really written a brilliant character,’ she said. ‘To stay involved, it’s so interesting. I get to say all the things to people I would never say in real life.’
She teased: ‘Who knows? But it’s been an honour to be there and I’ve loved every minute of it.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV 1.
