CHARLIE BROOKS is leaving EastEnders to compete on Strictly Come Dancing.

The actress, who plays scheming Janine Butcher, will quit Albert Square in August for six months.

Charlie is fired up for Strictly after winning the Christmas special and dance bosses want her because soap stars are a huge draw for fans.

Ex EastEnders Jill Halfpenny and Kara Tointon both lifted the glitterball trophy.

Charlie says Janine will have her baby before leaving Walford.

Asked what is coming up in EastEnders, she said: "Baby. I think that's about all I can say really as that's all I know.

"I've got six months off in August so we're having the bump, but I won't have to deal with prams and stuff in extra small doors on the set."

Last year after winning the Strictly Christmas show, Charlie revealed she wanted to do the full series but needed time off.

She said: "It would be fantastic to do the whole show but EastEnders is a six-days-a-week job. I've seen how difficult it is to juggle both but it would be an amazing opportunity."

Last night a source at the BBC said: "It's more or less a done deal. Charlie would be a dream signing for Strictly. She's high-profile and popular and judging by the Christmas special, she has natural ability."

Last night an EastEnders spokeswoman confirmed: "Charlie will be taking a break from EastEnders later this year.

"Over the coming months there will be a lot of unexpected twists and turns and the story is bound to be explosive."
