Patsy Palmer renews her vows in the Caribbean

Monday April 23, 2012

Eastenders star Patsy Palmer has finally had the white wedding she had always dreamed off, 12 years after originally tying the knot with husband Richard Merkell.

The couple, who married in 2000, decided to renew their commitment to each other in the Caribbean after originally marrying in a hurry when their 11-year-old son Fenton was born prematurely.

"When I married Richard, everything was such a rush," Patsy tells HELLO!
