Janine Butcher is back on the square.

Since swanning off to Paris in 2014, her whereabouts have been unknown. One thing that we know for sure is that wherever Janine has been, drama and scandal won’t have been far behind. We just can’t wait to see her back in Walford.

On her return to Albert Square Charlie Brooks says: “I am beyond excited to be slipping back into Janine’s shoes and returning to The Square. The time feels right and I can’t wait to find out what she’s been up to for the last seven years! She is and always has been SO much fun to play. Feels a bit like coming home. It’s good to be back.”

Jon Sen, Executive Producer, EastEnders added: “Janine is one of EastEnders most iconic characters who is loved, and often despised, in equal measure by viewers and all those in Walford. Charlie’s portrayal of Janine over the years has created some of EastEnders most memorable moments and we are all really excited to see Charlie bring her incredible portrayal of Janine back again. We have lots of drama in store for Janine, in fact it may be wise for some of the residents of Walford to invest in some slip on shoes…”
