Tony Clay wants EastEnders showdown with Patsy Palmer

EastEnders" Tony Clay believes Callum "Halfway" Highway would have to leave Walford if he had a dramatic showdown with Bianca Jackson.

The 27-year-old actor would love his character - who is engaged to Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), but is also romantically involved with Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) - to clash with Patsy Palmer's alter-ego when she returns to Albert Square later this year, but admits his character would need to leave the East End quickly.

He told Inside Soap magazine: "It would be brilliant. Callum would need a passport and to be on the go straight away if Bianca found out.

"I'd be buzzing to do scenes with Patsy Palmer, so we'll just have to see what happens as the story unfolds..."

The storyline is set to heat up with the romance between Callum and Ben after the couple are spotted by Callum's brother Stuart (Ricky Champ) sharing an intimate moment in the Queen Vic - and the soap star is intrigued about what direction the characters will go in.

Tony added: "The whole plot is hugely exciting for us all. One minute Callum is talking about having a baby with Whitney, the next minute he's in this whole new world.

"For Shona, it's a chance to do some big scenes if Whitney has to deal with the truth about Callum. Whichever way it goes, we're going to really roll with it."

Tony returned to Walford in spring last year, and he previously admitted he immediately regretted getting his haircut after chopping his tresses for the show.

He said at the time: "I had this haircut for Halfway. At first I thought, "Oh no, what have I done?"

"But I've realised it adds character. Now he's with Whitney, she might be the type of girl to say, "OK, let's take you to the barbers."
