She provided viewers with one of the most iconic TV moments and now Janine Butcher is returning to Albert Sqaure.

The role will be reprised by original actress Charlie Brooks after rumours she would be returning to the BBC soap.

Janine will step back into Walford after being away from Albert Square for more than seven years.

However, EastEnders promises that one thing viewers can be sure of is that wherever Janine is, drama is never far away.

Janine was last seen heading to Paris in 2014 to pick up her daughter Scarlett but her whereabouts have been unknown since then.

With Scarlett also set to return, Janine’s sudden reappearance will likely send shockwaves around Walford and with enemies to boot around every corner, trouble will no doubt follow her back to where it all began.

On her return to EastEnders, Charlie said: "I am beyond excited to be slipping back into Janine's shoes and returning to the square.

One of Janine's most memorable moments

"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 at 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…"

Charlie has said it's 'good to be back'

Viewers will well remember Janine for her scheming, tumultuous relationships and explosive feuds with nearly everyone that crosses her path.

And who can forget her pushing her husband Barry off a cliff to his death on New Year’s Day 2004.
