Going from sick to a bank holiday

Hi, wondering if someone can help please, if an employee is off sick and they are returning to work and the Monday and Tuesday are bank holidays and they return to work on the Wednesday, do they get sick pay for the Monday and Tuesday or do they get holiday pay ?

If the employee was still sick on the Monday and Tuesday and those were qualifying days, SSP would not be interrupted by the bank holidays and the employee would be paid SSP (if they met all of usual qualifying conditions).
