EastEnders‘ Janine Malloy will try to kill husband Ryan in a Christmas plotline, according to reports.

The Albert Square vixen, played by Charlie Brooks, plots to poison Ryan (Neil McDermott) with pills after she boils over with jealousy at the amount of the time he is spending with his baby, Lily, and her mum, Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner).

According to The Sun, she will vent her anger by crushing medication into his food.

Janine bumped off her first husband Barry in 2004 by pushing him off a cliff.

She was also arrested on suspicion of murdering fiance Archie Mitchell, although the real culprit was Stacey.

Another husband, an elderly man called David, ended up dead on their wedding day. He had a heart attack after discovering Janine was a fraud.

An EastEnders source told the Sun: “Janine is Walford’s best bitch, so of course when she realises she may lose Ryan – the one thing she really loves – she sets about plotting her revenge.

“When she killed Barry it wasn’t premeditated, but this is planned in cold blood. She is a truly twisted character.”
