Patsy’s over in the UK from her home in Miami at the moment, and appeared on This Morning yesterday (Thursday June 21) where she revealed her real name is actually Julie – shocking hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly willoughby.

She said she tries to go by her real name in the US – but she “gets so confused” having two monikers.

The actress was born Julie Anne Harris and uses her married name Julie Merkell while socialising in Malibu, where she now lives.

But she admitted she sometimes forgets and reverts back to her work name, Patsy, so her Stateside pals now refer to her as “Patsy Julie”.

She told the hosts: “They [fans] don’t know me [in America] and I have another name. My name is Julie really, so I thought, ‘I’m going to get back to calling myself my real name.’

“But I actually get so confused myself that sometimes I’ll say Patsy and sometimes I’ll say Julie.

“So now in Malibu they call me Patsy Julie.

“Julie Anne Harris was my name, my married name is Julie Merkell.

“And I’m Bianca, I’m a mum, I’m a wife, I’m everything. So, who am I?

“I need to go on Who Do You Thing You Are?”

Patsy is to return to EastEnders for a brief stint in the coming weeks, and admitted she has been keeping an eye on how her on-screen daughter Maisie Smith (Tiffany Butcher) has been getting on in Albert Square.

She added: “I’ve seen bits of what Maisie has been doing and she’s so brilliant.

“All of a sudden you go and you come back and she’s a woman. She’s so grown up and so beautiful.

“She’s such a great little actress.

“I’ve always said it’s a bit odd sometimes when major characters don’t return when it’s something that … you know.”
