Patsy Palmer left the UK in 2014 for sunny stateside California and has well and truly got involved in the American spirit.

The EastEnders' actress celebrated in the car with her family as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gained victory over President Donald Trump, and were elected to the White House.

In a video filmed from inside the car, Patsy threw her hands up in the air as she danced to the groovy house music, while her husband Richard Merkell drove.

Driving along the Malibu coast, Patsy looked delighted as she clapped and cheered while wearing a blue cap with a red and yellow triangle print.

She laughed away in the video, which she captioned: "Tonight it’s party time #bidenharris2020. A great day for the people."

The soap star, who set up home in Malibu with her children, then shared a picture of the new president and his VP, writing in the caption: "Let’s keep the PEACE people. You made it … Let’s make it different .. Let’s make change … Thankyou to the people that Voted … Thankyou to @joebiden & @kamalaharris"
