Charlie Brooks spent her weekend throwing it back to the old days of EastEnders, meeting up with some of her former co-stars.

The actress, who plays Janine Butcher in the BBC One soap, met up with Nabil Elouahabi and Gary Beadle to support Lucy Speed, who is currently directing a play in London called How to Have a Baby and Not Lose Your S**t.

Lucy, who played Natalie Evans aka Barry Evans’ wife, posted an amazing picture on her Instagram sharing an iconic moment with her friends.

She wrote alongside: ‘Another glorious surprise reunion at the matinee of @HowtoHaveaBaby1 my heart is full of [heart emoji] and laughs. And so many mates old and new. Thankyou!’.

Nabil played the role of Tariq in EastEnders from 2003-2005, while Gary portrayed Patrick’s (Rudolph Walker) son, Paul, from 2001-2005.

Charlie is currently still on screen as Janine, but it has previously been confirmed she will once again leave the role.

‘I was only ever due back to EastEnders for a year,’ Charlie told The Sun, discussing her exit, ‘but when [exec producer] Chris Clenshaw presented me with his idea for the story, I couldn’t say no to staying a little longer.

‘I’ve had an amazing time, as I always do when I go back.

‘But as always with Janine, she probably should not outstay her welcome — for everyone’s sake.’

It is not yet known how exactly Janine will leave Walford but with Ricky set to stage a comeback beforehand, viewers can expect her exit to be an explosive one, with a source telling the publication that ‘massive stories’ are planned.
