EASTENDERS star Charlie Brooks has teased a dramatic Christmas episode after her epic return to the soap.

The actress, 40, left fans of the BBC show open-mouthed when she made a comeback to the Square with a new identity earlier this week.


After seven years away from Walford, Scarlett's evil mum is back in Walford pretending to be a kids' doctor.

With Christmas fast approaching, many fans are probably wondering if the much-loved character will have any involvement in the epic festive episode.

Charlie has been told to keep schtum about the soap's future plans, but did lift the lid about what to expect in the NTAs winners' room last night after presenting the award for best serial drama performance.

The soap star confessed: "I do know about Christmas Day…

"But I’ll be killed if I reveal anything.

"I might be watching myself, but I struggle with that as I get older."

Charlie has played Janine in EastEnders since 1999 and was last seen in 2014 heading off to Paris to see her daughter.

In April 2021 The Sun exclusively revealed that the telly star would be making an epic return as the murderer after seven years away.

After months of speculation the BBC soap finally confirmed the character's comeback in June.

On Monday night viewers saw Janine pretend to be a pediatric nurse under a fake name.

She introduced herself as Dr Judith Bernstein and immediately started flirting with Sharon Watts' half brother Zack Hudson when he brought his nephew Albie into the GP practice.

Fans have gone on to predict an explosive love triangle between the pair and Nancy Carter.

Next week Janine is trapped in a huge explosion as she battles to save Scarlett and Tommy.

Janine has locked horns with Kat Slater over Scarlett’s future, which leads Scarlett to run away. 

When the social worker calls and reveals Scarlett has disappeared, Janine grows determined to track her down and eventually finds her hiding upstairs at Phil’s place with Tommy. 

​​A scuffle ensues and they don’t notice Scarlett’s jumper landing on the lit hob from Phil’s cooking earlier. 

In episodes which are yet to air Tommy locks the door and throw the key straight down a crack in the floorboards as the fight between him, Scarlett and Janine escalates. 

When the trio realise there’s a fire ripping through the building, they panic and scramble to find the key.
