Speaking to Inside Soap, Brooks said: "Without being presumptuous - who knows if they will want me back? - the opportunity to return would be good.

"I would love to see what Janine has been up to - I imagine she is struggling, sleeping in her sister Diane's spare bed."

Despite being happy to return, Brooks believes that her time away from the show was important, in order to give viewers a rest from Janine.

Brooks said: "The thing with Janine is that she is the type of character who needs a rest to keep her interesting. But you can take her in all directions, and I love how they manage to keep her just the right side of camp.

"I especially loved my last line on the show, when this guy asks Janine what she has been doing, and she looks at him and says, 'Getting away with murder'. Amazing."
