ROBERT Mugabe no longer commands the support of the Zimbabwean people and must resign from office, Ricky and Bianca said last night.
The pair marked their much-anticipated return to Albert Square with a stern warning to the 84 year-old president that his time was up.
In an open letter to Mr Mugabe, Bianca said: "Your once proud country, rich in both raw materials and human resources, has been brought to its knees by rampant hyper-inflation and the break down of the rule of law. Whossallthatabout?"
Ricky said: "I don't want nuffink more to do wiff ya, alright? It's finished, alright? I trusted you and you treated me like dirt. You better 'ope I never see your face again."
Meanwhile fans of the star-crossed pair have been given a tantalising insight into their story since leaving Walford six years ago.
Former car mechanic Ricky joined the Foreign Office before being seconded to the National Security Agency in Washington where he put together a series of memos urging President Bush to take bold action against Saddam Hussein.
In one scene, to be shown next week, he tells an angry Ian Beale: "I says to 'im 'you don't need no post invasion strategy mate, they'll welcome you like conquering 'eroes'."
Bianca, the ginger skank, drifted from one failed relationship to another, giving birth to three more children, before securing a position as strategic adviser to a large American bank.
It was there that she devised and implemented a policy of high interest home loans to millions of low income people with little or no credit history.
She will be seen in the back room of the Queen Vic telling an angry Ian Beale: "You over-borrowed against your assets. You got greedy dintcha?"
President Mugabe said last night: "I knew Ethel and Willy. I worked with Ethel and Willy. Ethel and Willy were friends of Mine. Ricky and Bianca, you are no Ethel and Willy."
