Bianca Blackwell - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

Bianca Jackson (also Butcher) is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders played by Patsy Palmer. The character was introduced by executive producer Leonard Lewis and appeared initially from 1993 to 1999, when Palmer opted to leave. In 2002 executive producer John Yorke brought the character back for a special spin-off show. She returned to EastEnders as a full-time character in April 2008, reintroduced by executive producer Diederick Santer. Palmer took maternity leave in 2010, and Bianca left the series on 21 January 2011. The character returned for a four-month guest stint on 15 December 2011 and left again from April 2012 to November 2012. Palmer quit EastEnders in 2014, and Bianca departed on 12 September 2014. During her first run on the show during the 1990s, she was known for her bizarre sense of style, her sharp tongue, fiery temper and for screaming "Rickaaaaaaay!" at her husband. Bianca has been featured in storylines including affairs, feuds, bereavements, family problems, spina bifida and abortion, two problematic marriages to Ricky Butcher (Sid Owen), her troubled and dysfunctional reconciliation with her estranged biological father David Wicks, the revelation of her 15-year-old ward Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) being sexually abused by her fiancé Tony King (Chris Coghill) and his subsequent arrest for paedophilia, her friendship with Tiffany Mitchell (Martine McCutcheon) and relationship with Terry Spraggan (Terry Alderton).
