EASTENDERS fans were overjoyed at a nod to iconic character Pat Butcher from her evil granddaughter Janine
The scheming superbitch – played by Charlie Brooks on the BBC One soap – hasset her sights on Mick Carter and her obsessive ways means she'll stop at nothing to get her man.
Last night, The Queen Vic landlord made an innocent gesture to help Janine get her daughter Scarlett back.
Mick, who is played by Danny Dyer, agreed to let Janine stay at The Queen Vic for a few weeks after she was kicked out of Jay Brown's flat for framing him for masterminding the car heist scam.
Having a heart-to-heart with Mick, Janine puts on the waterworks as she tried to convince the landlord that she's a decent person.
"I know what people around here think about he, I have spent years fanning the flames," Janine sobbed.
" There was this woman that used to live across the Square, massive earrings and she was always telling me to just grow up Janine.
