EastEnders fans will see one of the soap's characters hatch a plot to murder their arch enemy later this month.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Radio Times reports that Michael (Steve John Shepherd) decides to drug Janine (Charlie Brooks) so that he can run away with daughter Scarlett.

The besotted Alice (Jasmyn Banks) offers to slip Janine the pills herself - but she is unaware that Michael plans to give her a lethal dose.

The scenes will air on BBC One and RTÉ One on Thursday October 24 and Friday October 25.
