EastEnders fans are convinced Janine Butcher is going to return to take down killer Gray Atkins.
Janine, played by Charlie Brooks, was last seen in 2014.
According to the publication, an EastEnders source said: “Bosses have a huge story planned for Charlie’s return.
“They are keeping tight-lipped about whether Janine will come back as a reformed 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’s bound to be explosive. Where Janine goes, drama is never far behind.”
Entertainment Daily has contacted EastEnders reps for comment on this story.

I think Janine could be the one to take Gray down. And I am totally here for it. Vengeance for Whitney and at least at the hands of a woman. #Eastenders

Gray arrived in Walford in 2019 shortly after his wife Chantelle.
It was later revealed he was physically abusive towards her and last year he killed Chantelle after learning she planned to leave him.
After pushing her onto the dishwasher, which had an upward facing knife, he refused to get her help and made her death look like an accident.
He later went on to kill Tina Carter, who started to figure out that he killed Chantelle. Bu most recently, he killed Kush Kazemi by pushing him in front of an oncoming tube train.
It is well-known that Janine has a past with murder.
Janine married her first husband Barry for his money, believing he was ill. But when she discovered he wasn’t ill, she ended up pushing him off a cliff in Scotland, killing him.
Her second husband, a rich elderly businessman called David, died of a heart attack at the ceremony.
She also tried to kill her third husband Ryan Malloy but failed and tried to frame her rival Stacey Slater for the crime.
In 2009 she accidentally ran over Danielle Jones, killing her. She later went on to kill her fourth husband Michael Moon in 2003.
She later left Walford to go to France in 2014.
EastEnders airs Mondays at 8.05pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.35pm and Fridays at 8.30pm on BBC One.
