EastEnders villain Janine Butcher is reportedly returning to Albert Square.

Charlie Brooks, 39, is said to be making an explosive return to the BBC soap as Janine as part of a huge storyline.

EastEnders fans last saw Janine Butcher on screens seven years ago.

A source told The Sun: "Bosses have a huge story planned for Charlie's return. They are keeping tight-lipped about whether Janine will come back as a reformed character after all the chaos she has caused in the past.

"But she certainly has a lot of history in Albert Square so whether she will be welcomed back with open arms or not remains to be seen.

"One thing the viewers can be sure about is that it is bound to be explosive. Wherever Janine goes, drama is never far behind."

Filming on the huge storyline is reported to begin in a few weeks, with Charlie said to be returning as a full-time cast member.

As she last left Albert Square in 2014, Janine boarded a train to Paris after being forced to leave Walford behind when she was found not guilty for husband Michael Moon's murder.

Janine has always kept viewers on the edge of their seats, with one famous storyline seeing her push husband Barry Evans off a cliff, leaving him to die as he cried for help.

EastEnders airs Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One.
