EastEnders legends Pat Butcher and Janine reunited!

They are soap heroines...

Loose Women reunited two EastEnders favourites today - and fans were in raptures!

The love/hate relationship between no-nonsence matriarch Pat Butcher and super witch Janine went down in soap history.

But, in real life, the pair are firm buddies! (We're not saying we're disappointed, but a Jeremy Kyle-style showdown would have been epic).

On Wednesday (11 July), Pam St. Clement was serving as a special guest presenter on the afternoon ITV panel show.

And she was delighted and speechless when her former soap colleague Charlie Brooks arrived on set to surprise her!

Step-mum and step-daughter Janine and Pat were iconic on-screen sparring partners until Pat was killed off in 2012.

While appearing on the show, the pair reminisced about their time filming EastEnders, with Pam telling Charlie: "You were so evil and then you’d come off stage.

I went to Pam for quite a lot of advice, with career stuff, personal stuff.

"I think that's why people didn't hate Janine."

Charlie added: "The friendship that we built up until she left was really quite special."

She added: "I went to Pam for quite a lot of advice, with career stuff, personal stuff. She told me to do I'm A Celebrity. I rang her up going, 'Pam, what should I do?' She said, 'Charlie you love adventure, you love life, go and do it.'

"Because she knew me, she knew it would work for me."

|In 2012, Charlie went on to win the ITV show, hosted by Ant and Dec.

Pam continued her tribute to her former co-star, saying: "Charlie's fabulous. Such a worker."

The 76-year-old actress left the soap in 2012 after Pat passed away from cancer, although she has returned in dream sequences - notably during Dame Barbara Windsor's final episode in 2016.

Meanwhile, Charlie exited the show in 2014, but fans long to have her back.
