There is speculation that two women in EastEnders may be about to team up for some Machiavellian shenanigans in Albert Square.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Coming up on the soap, Lucy (Hetti Bywater) will accept a job from Janine (Charlie Brooks), only to feel humiliated by the tasks her new boss asks her to do.

Eventually, Janine pushes Lucy too far, with the younger woman speaking her mind.

Janine is impressed by Lucy's spirit and gives her more responsibility, leading to speculation that Lucy will seek Janine's help in exacting revenge against her father Ian (Adam Woodyatt).

The Lucy-Janine storyline begins on BBC One and RTÉ One from next week.
