EastEnders: Will the Jackson family be homeless in the New Year?!

by Lynn Connolly

As fans of EastEnders will know, big hearted Pat Evans (Pam St Clement) is the adopted matriarch of the Jackson family, given that Bianca Jackson’s kids all live in her house, as well as of course Bianca’s mum Carol (Lindsey Coulson).

And when Ricky Butcher (Sid Owen) comes back from Dubai soon, he too will once again take up residence with Pat, but as Digital Spy report, the entire family may find themselves homeless in the New Year!

The plotline begins when Ricky gets home next week to find Pat has bad news for him. She tells him that she took out a dodgy loan on the house, and as she hasn’t kept up the repayments, the loan company are about to sell the house and evict them all.

A desperate Pat is hoping that Ricky can bail them all out with the money he earned abroad, however, he has to confess that he lost it all, and is in fact more brassic than he was when he left!

With her trademark sigh and accusatorially raised eyebrows, Pat will tell Ricky that he must tell Bianca (Patsy Palmer) the whole truth of their dire situation before she gets out of prison…

He duly does so, and unsurprisingly, Bianca’s furious and worried sick about her brood, and where they’ll all live.

However, as we reported recently, when Bianca is freed and she comes back to Walford, it’s smiles all round, so maybe she’s come up with a solution? Maybe they’ll have to sell their souls to the devil and ask rich sis Janine for help?

Well, we’ll find out next week, but of course, as well as facing being evicted, the family will have to cope with Pat’s death at Christmas…

Remind me never to move to Walford. It’s like Midsomer – nowt but misery and death! I can’t imagine why anyone lives there.
