She said: ‘I’d left EastEnders because I’d been there a long time [since 1993], and I was getting offers for other things, TV and film. Then I had my son Fenton, and then Emilia, so it has always been career, kids, career, kids.
‘I never missed EastEnders because it was so all-encompassing, so it was nice to have some family time for a bit. But I did love my time there.’
Patsy told how her daughter Emilia, 19, would often be quizzed by her schoolmates on her famous mother’s career, leading the school to let her have lunch early by herself so she could avoid it.
She explained: ‘All the other kids were driving her mad about me, saying things all the time. It was never mean stuff, and she was never bullied; she just found it all kind of overwhelming. Sometimes she’d say to me: “I just don’t know who my real friends are.”‘

The soap star added she ‘doesn’t recognise’ the person she was as a teenager, when she had drink and drug problems and was pregnant at 19.

‘We have listened to endless music, danced to millions of songs, laughed at stupid jokes, argued about stupid things but we are always together.
‘We are best friends & lovers and parents to our wonderful children. So grateful for you @richardmerkell. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone that believes in LOVE ❤️❤️’
