Meet The (Bianca) Jackson 5

Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap!

So guys, have you been watching the drip-drip return of Rickaaaay! and Biancaaarrrgh this week? Talk about stringing it out! The EastEnders writers would’ve been great during World War II – they could’ve fed the entire country on the tiniest of portions. Of course what we’re really waiting for is that first meeting between the two exes. And the writers know it.

Bianca Jackson (played by Patsy Palmer) returns to the Square with four kids in tow; they’re the Jackson 5. The kids are: Whitney Dean who’s 15-years-old. She’s the daughter of a trucker named Nathan, who got together with Bianca in 2002. She’s Bianca’s stepdaughter and apparently, she’s a bit mouthy – just like her step mother then. She’s been with Bianca since her dad died in a lorry crash.

Tiffany Dean is five; she’s Bianca and Nathan’s child. Liam Butcher is nine. His dad is, obviously, Ricky. He feels like the man of the family because he’s the oldest boy. Morgan Jackson-King is three. He’s Bianca’s child with her current partner Tony, who’s now in jail. Morgan only eats chicken nuggets (watch out for a Jamie Oliver lecture slamming EastEnders over this very soon) – could this family be any more chav?

And talk about history repeating itself! Bianca Jackson has turned out just like mum Carol who arrived in Albert Square with a load of kids from different fathers too: Bianca (father David Wicks), Sonia (father Terry Cant), Robbie (father Gary Bolton) and little Billy-with-the-overlong-hair (father Alan Jackson). Don’t be surprised if little Morgan’s hair is down to his shoulders by next week…

In honour of the Jacksons ambushing Albert Square, the BBC has produced a spoof Jackson 5 video. Here it is (it’s only available in the UK so if you’re not part of the licence paying population, you won’t be able to view)

    can this family be any more chav, you ask? my question is, can your MSN TV Blog page be any more prejudice against the lower class family? you guys get away with a lot on a day to day basis i noticed, you should watch what you say more often, because you are one of the main meduims on the internet.

  2. Lily says:

    Bring it on! I lurve Bianca and co. Chavtastic!!!!!!

  3. Soap Blogger says:

    Thank you for your comments Joe. If this was Gossip Girl and Bianca was talking about going to \’The \’Hamptons\’ for Spring Break, I\’d be saying: \’can she get any more Upper East Side?\’ But this isn\’t Gossip Girl, it\’s EastEnders and like it or not, the Square is a celebration of chav at times. Doesn\’t mean we don\’t like Bianca or that we have some kind of, in your words, "prejudice against lower class family". We love Bianca!

  4. cherry says:

    Oh my gosh, how can u, at least were now in 4 some fun now Bianca is back (she reminds me of myself, and i\’m actually a very nice person if i may say so myself)

  5. Kayleigh S says:

    It looks like Eastenders have ran out of ideas for storylines and said oh lets bring someone back to the square…oh Dennis…no…he\’s dead again…how about oh yeah Bianca… Yer…give us some time to think of some storylines….

  6. Tia says:

    joe, the blog doesn\’t actually say anything to offend lower class families. Not every lower class family has 4 kids by differet fathers, or wear tracksuits all the same etc! What it says is that the family is a group of chavs which is true! But they are hilarious and it\’s great to see Bianca back! They are a great family, and I can\’t wait to see what happens to them on the show!

  7. Kayleigh S says:

    BUT WE LOVE IT!

  8. amelia says:

    bicanca defenitly brought back seans smile unless this was filmed after he buried max who knows phil might of found himself a new playgirl

  9. amelia says:

    chav world craod for crowd def east end of london

  10. Unknown says:

    lets be honest we all love bianca even if shes a sponge off the state like a lot of londons mothers but to be fair eastenders is mainly fiction. if you have ever been to the east end of london its more like ramadams mecca you know the bingo hall the bbc will never make eastenders  realistic as there viewing figures would plumet big time AND THEY KNOW IT eastenders is so easy to work out i only need to watch it once a month we all new franks bow tie was in the present just like we knew pat and peggy were gonna slap each other round the face  if only i could bet on eastenders

  11. Unknown says:

    its obvious whats gonna happen ricky will get back with the soppy council bird why bring him back if there not gonna re new old story lines then she will cheat on him with wait for it a drunken gary from the arches or maybe even my long shot gus notice that she allready has a mixed sexual fancy

  12. Louise and Burt says:

    Oh my, I love Eastenders (I AM SAD – but devoted), reading the below comments really cracks me up….Bianca, cool, bring her and Ricky back.  I believe we have seen an end of an era with not seeing Pat or Dot or many of the other long-stay characters passing away on the set and I personally look forward to seeing what comes around the corner with the series…bring it on!!!!!!!

  13. ian says:

    Do you think she said \’I want a braahn baby!\’
    I do.

  14. Darren says:

    just another chav to ruin the evenings viewings, groan 😦

  15. paul says:

    lol loved it bring it on jacksons

  16. donna says:

    i just love pasty palmer as this character. Welcome back bianca may you liven up my evenings. bring on the children as well they look fun. it is very hard to be a single mum lets see pastys character go back to college and study fasion design like she wanted to do all those years ago. she does\’nt need any more kids so dont give her no more men. 

  17. david says:

    To be honest i loved it, the square has not been the same without her !! she has to be one of my all time favourite characters. Whats the phrase ??? CHAVTASTIC !!
    Bring it on Bianca hope you are here to stay !!

  18. Rachel says:

    used to watch eastenders ages ago. lmfao at this – brilliant!
    no way im gona start watching it again tho! lol

  19. Soap Blogger says:

    Guys, this is a PG-rated blog. No swearing please – kids might be watching. Lee, I\’ve edited your comment.

    (http://leeversion1.spaces.live.com/)These writers must be smoking the crck pipe when they come up wiv this s***

  20. peter says:

    i hope bianca and her family of chavs get a good beating by metropolitan police.

  21. Frogz says:

    Eastenders is terrible!  You occasionally get a good episode now and again, when a decent writer gets a good storyline.  There have been the occasional good performances too.  It\’s strange that two of the most limited actors – and I use the word actor in the loosest sense of the word – have made a come back.  I guess that they\’ll be glad to be back on the Eastenders gravy train.  Didn\’t Patsy Palmer think she was a gifted actress and too good for the soap?  Isn\’t that why she left?  I guess she\’s been taken down a peg or two. 

  22. Cobesta says:

    Come on Bianca! Lol I just wanna see wat happens wen she sees Ricky!

  23. Diane says:

    looks good seeing Bianca back but i\’m not into the chav thing.  I think Eastenders needs some Goths, i\’ll put my name up for it if it was offered lol

  24. linda says:

    wow what a turn up for the books, bring it on bianca, lets see you and ricky back together again. Also bring on the clan lol, nothing to be ashamed of having kids to different men, you remind me of mysely years ago. I had 5 kids to 5 different men and they are all fab, got good jobs. GREAT TO SEE YOU BACK BIANCA.

  25. peter says:

    they did goths in corrie and made them out to be freaks which they are.

  26. EMMA says:

    think it looks good …hope her and rickyyyy get back together

  27. colin says:

    Really sorry for the F-word, kids, if you are reading, it\’s not clever or cool to swear! But crikey I am miffed!!!!!!!

  28. Soap Blogger says:

    no name who left a comment here on 03 April at 22:02, I\’ve deleted your comments about Linda because flaming isn\’t allowed. 

  29. Soap Blogger says:

    (no name), you\’ve apologised for swearing, but I still had to edit your comment: please guys, this is a PG-rated blog. No swearing. 🙂 In addition, I cry for all kids – not just British ones. But that\’s a different subject…
    (http://cid-49b58582b531b24d.spaces.live.com/)the Bianca scene with the kids bunked down in the bus shelter actually bought a tear to my eye…British mum, dead partner, down on her luck…totally f***** by the system. If she had been an asylum-seeking foreigner, they\’d have given them a house, cash, and a lovely dental plan! How many BRITISH families are living in acute poverty whilst {newspapers 03/04/08} foreign asylum/benefit claimant builds 7-bed mansion in Pakistan on the {fraudulently-claimed} benefits given to him by the British government! I cried seeing little (British) kiddiers sleeping on the PAVEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Siobhan says:

    If you could read, you would notice that she only has three kids by different fathers, the 4th in said Jackson 5 is her stepdaughter and she is the fifth!! An if you are referring to the lady talking further down the page then you need to grow up. You can\’t even put a name to your comment, you are being a coward.

  31. kai says:

    tiffany  i like you but say with your mum and play..
    liam you say to her stop wan you go home..
    whitney say how did push you ?? wan you go home
    bianca say do be bad..
     

  32. Unknown says:

    I LUV DA JACKSON 5
    I FINK :TIFFANY AND MORGAN R SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE
    AND I FINK LIAM IZ A RITE LITTLE CHAV
    A FINK WHITNEY IS PROPA PHITAGE
    AND I FINK BIANCA IS A REALLI GR8 MUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Unknown says:

    OH YEH AND I HOPE BIANCA GETS BACK WIT RICKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

  34. Anne says:

    i hope things work out for Bianca and her family, and she gets the break she needs to sort out her situation,
    she could have a win on the lotery and start a business (night club or pub) just to rattle a few cages in the square, after all that is what she is been brough back into the show for.  
    oh and of course she should use rickky like she always has done but turn the tables and then we will see the firworks go off in albert square.
    pity pauline passed away that would be a good story line her and bianca lol 

  35. Anna says:

    Havent watched eastenders for years cause it got really rubbish and depressing. loved these characters before so will start watching again and hope that they have some good scripts. like the spoof video and some of the other publicity hope it lives up to the hype tho

  36. Sadia says:

    I\’M NOT REALLY HERE TO CAUSE ANY KIND OF INCONVENIENCE BUT READING THIS BLOG I AM A REGULAR VIEWER OF EASTENDERS AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT AN I THINK BIANCA COMING BACK IS A BRILLIANT IDEA AND SHE HIGHLIGHTS SEVERAL DIFFERENT FACTS SUCH AS THE DIFFICULTY OF LIFE ON STREETS, AN THE DIFFICULTY SHE HAS LOOKING AFTER HER KIDS BUT SHE STILL DONT WANT TO LET THEM GO NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT SHE FINDS IT.
     
    How many BRITISH families are living in acute poverty whilst {newspapers 03/04/08} foreign asylum/benefit claimant builds 7-bed mansion in Pakistan on the {fraudulently-claimed} benefits given to him by the British government! I cried seeing little (British) kiddiers sleeping on the PAVEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
    I WOULD LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING ON BEHALF OF THIS COMMENT, I DONT CARE WHO WROTE IT I AM VERY OFFENDED BY THIS COMMENT AS BEING A BRITISH PAKISTANI I DO NOT CLAIM BENEFITS TO CREATE A 7 BED MANSION IN PAKISTAN, AS I WORK TO EARN MY MONEY JUST LIKE OTHERS AN YES THERE IS SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT DO THAT, AN THESE ARE NOT ALL PAKISTANI\’S IT\’S ALL KINDS OF ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS. THEREFORE I WOULD LIKE YOU TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE SAID AND HOW IT CAN BE COME ACROSS RACIST AND IN FUTURE THINK BEFORE YOU POST RACIST COMMENTS LIKE THAT.

  37. Soap Blogger says:

    Sadia, everyone knows that the person who made the comment that\’s offended you is an idiot. They didn\’t even have the guts to leave their real name. We all know there\’s good and bad in all races – just look at Shannon\’s stepfather and what he\’s been charged with. As for EastEnders, I\’m looking forward to Ricky and Bianca meeting up again!

  38. Adam says:

    Bianca Jackson is Back!! At last, as She is a very popluar Actress with everyone…I mean there are so many people on the Square..it will be very good to see how Bianca copy with the Brannings (Aunt Tanya with kids Bradley, Lauren, Abi and Oscar. Uncle Jack and his Daughter Penny) I have hear that Bianca is gonna to ave a war with Stacey Branning…That will be good to watch. Bianca\’s first week in EastEnders has been soo good as to have Frank\’s funeral which brought back Diane, Ricky and Janine and the same time Bianca as well it been like going bk in time! but showing us what life like our of the square, i mean We all wonder what Martin, Sonia and Rebecca doing now, or what lil Mark Junior like, what Chrissie Watts doing in Jail? Is Sam Mitchell still on the Run? Or Has Ruby Allen has let the ghost of her Dad laid to rest n stop been a spolit lil brat?!
     
    Cant wait to See What Trouble Bianca get up to now!

  39. donna says:

    im so glad that bianca is back she looks really good like the outfits she wears tiffany dean and morgan are so adorable awww bless i hope shes back for good

  40. Julie says:

    Can i just remind you, ITS JUST A PROGRAMME.

  41. Ian says:

    I have read suggestion that ITV\’s new producer of Coronation Street is planning to replace the oldermembers of the cast for younger ones. It is suggested that the older members are too expensive and they want to use cheapoer actors and actresses. Well, you know the adage, you will get what you pay for. Just look at the boring peoplke at present on the street. All are new , young players who are boring most people to death. I refer to the Kebab shop crew, the girl friend of Steve MacDonald with her two siblings. Dera, dear I wonder if ITV really are aware of the foly of allowing a new producer to run wild.

  42. carol says:

    my sides ache with laughing so much at the PROGRAMME lol??? where is the fun and laughter that londons east end is famous for.
    its about time we had some lighter storylines and not all this doom and gloom we have enough of that in our own lives. come on writers get your pens in gear and give us a laugh if you dare

  43. abbie says:

    f***in great

  44. Noodles says:

    Ed has really gone down the drain!  And i\’m a fan of over 15 years!
