It seems British soaps are getting steamier – first Coronation Street’s Rosie Webster donned a corset and suspenders to bag her man and now Janine Butcher is about to do the same in Eastenders.
The wicked temptress, played by Charlie Brooks, will sex up Albert Square by dressing in a racy red and black number complete with stockings and suspenders.
Wearing an anorak to cover her modesty, she will wander down to the Queen Vic’s cellar to meet her flatmate Ryan Malloy, before whipping off her outerwear to reveal the skimpy outfit underneath.
Talking about the scenes, 28-year-old Charlie said the soap’s writers told her that Janine was about to get naughtier than ever.
“She really doesn’t disappoint,” the actress told the Daily Mail. “The stuff with Ryan has been great to act. I love that she uses her sexuality to wrap him around her little finger.”
Perhaps girls should take note, as soap stars are not the only ones to have used a sexy get-up to impress the male of the species.
Presenting the MTV awards recently, singer Katie Perry donned a corset and hotpants emblazoned with the West Ham United Football Club logo to impress boyfriend Russell Brand.
