EastEnders Charlie Brooks says theres no better job as she talks soap return

EastEnders legend Charlie Brooks, who is best known to fans for playing the notorious Janine Butcher in the soap will soon be making her highly anticipated return to Albert Square.

The actress announced last month that "the time feels right" and she can't wait to find out what her character has been up to since she departed ways from the programme seven years ago.

But before she heads back to the Square, the mother-of-one will be playing the role of Anna in Channel 5's new thriller, Lie With Me.

Although she is excited to play a completely new character Charlie admitted that there is "no better job than EastEnders".

  • Charlie Brooks' EastEnders role left her out of work as 'people only see her as Janine'

Talking to Ok! about her roles after the BBC programme, Charlie 40, said: "When I came out of EastEnders eight years ago, I made a conscious decision to do a lot of theatre. I didn’t go to drama school, so with theatre I felt like I was learning on the job and telling some really important stories.

"Plus, it terrified me and I have a habit of doing things that scare me. I did then get to the point where I was hoping more TV work would come along, so it was perfect timing with Lie With Me."

Last month the stunning actress expressed her enthusiasm about her return to E20 and said she was "excited".

She said: "I am beyond excited to be slipping back into Janine’s shoes and returning to the square," she said.

Lie With Me is seductive thriller with several twists and turns that take place amongst the protagonists.

Set in Australia, the story follows the character Anna.

Speaking more on the role, Charlie said that her character has "lost herself a bit" due to the intense toxicity of her failing marriage.

Charlie explained that Anna has compromised who she is throughout the years and has experienced heavy gaslighting throughout her relationship.

Lie With Me airs on Monday 12 July at 9pm on Channel 5.
