HAVIN’ A BUTCHERS EastEnders legend looks unrecognisable in throwback snap – can you guess who from her childhood photo?

A fan favourite from Eastenders posted several gorgeous vintage pictures of her sporting cute corkscrew brunette hair.

The 41-year-old star of a BBC One soap took to her TikTok account to share a number of photos of herself playing board games while wearing a throwback tracksuit and a pink leotard.

She was seen having fun in the pool with her father and sibling in a third picture.

“When we were kids, me and my brother dreamed of being actors,” the star, who in an explosive storyline returned to Albert Square after killing one of EastEnders’ most beloved characters, captioned the photo.

Ben, a former child star who now works in production, said, “I’m not doing too bad.

Iampro, it’s your turn now; come take part in the drama.

Actress Charlie Brooks, who portrays the intrusive Janine Butcher played by Walford, is of course the famous person in question.

In one of her photos, the actress was posed side profile and flashing an interrogative expression akin to the one her diva character might use.

Although she will always be remembered as the one who pushed Barry off a cliff while playing the conniving Janine, the actress Charlie exclusively admitted to The Sun last year that she couldn’t be happier to reprise the role.

Charlie claimed that despite winning I’m A Celebrity and having a top-selling fitness DVD, the storied soap death in 2004 is still the event that has garnered the greatest attention about her professional life.

Devious Janine had married car lot owner Barry in a hasty ceremony in Scotland because she thought he only had a limited time left to live. But when it turned out that his illness was a false alarm, she was outraged and drove him to death.

Charlie reveals what onlookers yell at her in public: “‘You killed Barry!’ I typically get that one.

The phrase “Here’s a tenner” used to be common during the prostitute era. This girl has gone through a lot.

For the cunning daughter of Walford legend Frank Butcher, played by the late Mike Reid, it is an understatement.

In addition to killing Barry while the couple was on their honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands, Janine also killed Michael Moon, the fourth husband, tried to kill Ryan Malloy, fatally ran over Danielle, the long-lost daughter of Ronnie Mitchell, tried to defraud the Mitchell family, and falsely accused Stacey Slater of trying to kill Barry.

And maybe worst of all, she engaged in sexual activity with Ian Beale while employed as an escort.

2014 saw viewers witness Janine, who had been shunned by residents of Albert Square after getting away with murdering husband Michael, depart Walford for Paris to live with daughter Scarlett.

She has returned to Walford seven years later, eager to cause more trouble, and Charlie claims that if her character weren’t evil, viewers would be let down.

People have expectations, and I do too, so you want to live up to those expectations, she explains.
