Former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer shows off incredible LA mansion

Wow, what a change from Walford...

Patsy Palmer moved away from her native city London in 2014 into an incredible beach-front mansion in Malibu, California.

The actress showed off her amazing luxurious home on ITV’s Lorraine earlier today.

Complete with a pool and amazing view of the Los Angeles scenery the pad appears to be the perfect place to live.

Presenter Ross King jetted off to sunny Malibu to speak to Patsy about her new life in the States.

As the pair moved inside her plush mansion viewers got a glimpse at the posh interior.

Patsy and Ross sat in leather seats with a glass dining table in the background as the ex soap star spoke about her decision to move overseas.

She told Ross: “I just felt where else would I go?

“I always wanted to go somewhere, and I lost my dad, I lost my stepdad, and I did have a lightbulb moment then that ‘this is it, this really is it’ so make your mind up, do what you want.

“The only place I can go where the kids can sort of have a nice beachy life is here because I’m an actress, what else do I do?”

The mum-of-four revealed she’s given up her acting career for the time being and now performs as a DJ.

Speaking about being out of the spotlight and away from the media she said: “It was a little bit strange getting used to the idea you’re not ‘on show’ everywhere you walk about, you don’t have to be ready to speak to someone about EastEnders.

“You can go out and just completely be yourself, it’s kind of weird, it is something you probably need therapy for, though I haven’t gone down that route since I’ve been here but everyone does.”

And she admitted she doesn’t miss being on the BBC soap.

She said: “I honestly really don’t miss it, I love all my friends there and I was always very, very grateful to be there.”

In one post her and daughter Emilia, 16, can be seen enjoying a morning on the beach.

Patsy, who is married to Richard Merkell, often shares snaps of her stunning children on social media.

The star, 45, has Charley Palmer, 25, from her previous relationship with Alfie Rothwell, and Fenton, 17, Emilia, 16, and Bertie, six, with hubby Richard.
