English actress best known for playing Janine Butcher on BBC soap opera Eastenders.

Janine’s taken to selling herself, initially to clear a debt. Now than Ian Beale has used her services, she’s got the upper hand. Whatever next? Blackmail perhaps, but I can’t remember exactly.
Ian heads for a complete breakdown in the end, which is sad.
Janine remains as hard as nails.
5ft4 and a long overdue tongue. 👅

What an incredibly rude woman you are, Janine, picking up Sonia’s arm and feeling for fat! Sonia, played by Natalie Cassidy, has slimmed right down since her early EastEnders days, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!, Janine! 😝

Still quite the dishonest stinker, Janine, aren’t you?
I used to think she was well over 5ft4 rather than a flat 5ft4.

Janine’s conniving character hasn’t held her in good stead at all.
Two hooligans went after her and nobody believed that she was telling the truth.
It’s just as well that she starred in ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’, because we now know that she’s a super little person instead of the mischievous imp we saw in early ‘EastEnders’.

@ Rob - She does come across as being taller on “Eastenders”! 🥾👠
Avg🗳= 5’4.92”! (3 votes)!
She could pass for 5ft 5 or near it

@ Sandy Cowell - I always used to think that Charlie was 5'5" until I visited her page! One of the voters thought so too!

@ Rob - Any possibility of looking taller went clean out the window in that episode of 'Heartbeat', I'm afraid!

No comments yet? Well, here goes:
I caught Charlie playing an abused wife this morning in an episode of 'Heartbeat'. I'd seen it once before and it was really quite hard to forget.
It starts with the shooting of an innocent little white dog, but we soon find out that the upper-crust hoodlum's cruelty stretches to far more than murdering little animals - and enjoying it. He beats his young wife, played by Charlie, who still loves the rat because she lives in hope that things might one day be like they were when they first met, and he was nice to her. The awful man cannot stand the noise of their little baby son, and the nurse who goes round to see the young Mum soon finds out that there is something a miss.
5ft4 Charlie looks tiny in comparison to her 'orrible 'usband, but when the Police get involved, the rotten yob ends up looking the smallest of all! Fortunately, they persuade the Mum to leave and divorce him, and it goes quite without saying that she gets custody of the child, which is something the bully claimed she never would, which was all part of his bullying tactics.
Charlie looked divine as a long-haired brunette, and she had lost her London accent for the part!
She gets 5ft4.
Charlie is one lady who on TV I think at times could give a taller impression, like somebody in 5ft 5-6 range...
