EastEnders fans were overwhelmed with joy, as series stalwart Janine Butcher made a memorable return to the soap.
The legend, who was last seen in Walford over seven years ago, waltzed back onto our telly screens in style on Monday (September 6).
And while it’s been quite a long time since we last saw her, it’s clear that she’s still up to her old tricks, as she posed as a doctor.
Zack Hudson (James Farrar) took Albie for a doctor’s’ appointment, and after a long wait, he was shocked to set his sights upon the doc, who goes by the name of Judith Bernstein.
Except, Judith Bernstein is actually Janine!
Zack, being a relatively new addition to the BBC One soap, failed to realise who it was that he was speaking to. His sister Sharon, however, would know full well who she is!
The return was a long-time coming, and it was certainly as quintessentially Janine as one would’ve wanted.
Fans, of course, were filled with joy, many of them taking to social media to reflect on the momentous occasion.
‘Omg that was EVERYTHING!’ exclaimed an excited viewer. ‘I screamed of happiness seeing Janine back on my screen ahh welcome back.

‘OMG Janine is back’ wrote one excited fan.
‘JANINE IS BACK’ added another.
‘janine butcher the queen, the icon, the legend has returned,’ said a social media user. ‘nature is healing.’
Indeed it is! Janine is back, and we cannot wait to see what happens next!
