EastEnders star Charlie Brooks has revealed that her scheming character Janine Molloy would go to any lengths to get rid of rival Stacey Branning.

Next week’s episodes will see Janine kidnap Stacey’s baby Lily and stop the car – which also has her screen husband Ryan inside – on a level crossing.

And fans are now wondering whether the character has anything to do with Stacey’s departure from the show later in the year.

“There are no lengths Janine won’t go to in order to get rid of her,” Charlie told Inside Soap.

“She will do whatever it takes to have Ryan – and if she can’t have him, she won’t let anyone else have him either.”

Speculation is also mounting over whether Janine will find out that Stacey was Archie Mitchell’s killer.

“I’d love her to find that out so she’s got something against Stacey,” Charlie added.

Earlier this month, the soap’s executive producer Bryan Kirkwood revealed that Stacey would be the main focus of this year’s Christmas storyline.

It has also been reported that Janine will try to kill Ryan by crushing drugs into his food.
