Janine Butcher, played by actress Charlie Brooks, has been causing trouble in Albert Square from the moment she arrived and it looks like she's going to cause more trouble when she leaves.
Whenever a character gets written out of EastEnders, it's always a big deal and Janine's storyline is no different! After inheriting a small fortune from her nan, Janine will be leaving Walford in an explosive emotional showdown as she tests her husband's commitment by making him choose between her or the cash!
Talking to The Sun's TVBiz, an insider revealed more details: “The storyline is action-packed. Janine and Michael have always had huge trust issues, and their wedding and the birth of their daughter last month has done nothing to change that.
“Things come to a head when she accuses him of seeing another woman, which he denies. She then demands to know why he forced her to rip up their pre-nuptial agreement before their wedding and then she gives him a big test."
The insider added: “She tells him the case has £450,000 in it and says he has to choose between her and the money.
“She leaves the cash in the kitchen and says if it is still there in the morning she will know he loves her. He is seen clutching the money, leaving viewers guessing as to what he will do next.
“The next day the money is still there — but in a massive twist it is Janine who ends up deciding she can’t stay because she feels she is not fit to be a wife or a mother. She decides to leave Albert Square and Michael — but the big question is whether she will take baby Scarlett with her.”
The actress has already filmed her scenes, but viewers will to wait till September to see what happens!
It has been rumoured that the actress's exit from the show will enable her to take part in Strictly Come Dancing this year.
