A Berry emotional return for TV favourite

WHITBY TV favourite Nick Berry will be making a dramatic return to our screens this Christmas as one of soapland’s most long-serving characters makes a tear-jerking exit.

Berry - who often filmed around Whitby and Goathland when he played PC Nick Rowan in Heartbeat - goes back to EastEnders’ Albert Square after receiving a phone call from terminally-ill mum Pat Butcher, who has cancer.

She arranges a big party for family and friends at the Queen Vic where she breaks the news that she is dying, leaving ‘Enders fans weeping into their turkey.

Berry starred in Heartbeat for six years, singing the theme tune to the ITV police drama series.
