09:30 14 December 2005
Patsy Kensit is quitting 'Emmerdale' - to join 'Holby City'.
The sexy actress is to play a nurse in the medical drama from next October.
The 37-year-old star, who will finish her two-year stint as scheming Sadie King before leaving the hit soap, says she's delighted with the move.
She is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "After two fantastic years at 'Emmerdale' and ITV, I am thrilled to be offered the opportunity of joining 'Holby City' at the BBC."
The new role also means Patsy can spend all her time in London with her two sons, James, 13, and six-year-old Lennon, instead of facing a length commute to Leeds every day where 'Emmerdale' is filmed.
A friend is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Patsy loves playing Sadie but got tired of all the commuting. This isn't about money. Money isn't the main motivator. She just wants to spend more time with her children."
