Ricky and Bianca to tie the knot for the second time

The sound of wedding bells could soon be heard over Walford as it has been revealed that Eastenders characters Ricky and Bianca will tie the knot for the second time.

Ricky, played by Sid Owen, will no doubt be practicing his wedding speech ahead of the big day and rumours suggest that he will pop the question to his ex-wife at Christmas.

It is thought that Bianca, played by Pasty Palmer, will don her wedding dress in February next year to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the soap.

They first tied the knot 13 years ago and 22 million people tuned in to watch the event.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, a source said: “This will hopefully be the happy ending everyone is waiting for. We could well be looking at the greatest love story ever told. It’s going to be emotional.”
