This brutal minx's motto is that money can buy happiness. She will manipulate, marry and murder once she’s had a sniff of the Queen’s head. She inherited a fortune after the death of her catty grandmother Lydia. But whether that money will lead to fulfilment is yet to be seen.
Janine's a great actress who enjoys seducing people, but the clever diva doesn't always get the end results she desires, which has even led to her imprisonment.
Underneath the hard exterior she's really a little girl lost, who wants to love and be loved more than anything - just don't expect her to admit it! For a while it looked like she had found contentment with husband and father of her little girl Scarlett, Michael Moon, but the stress of parenthood made Janine increasingly paranoid about Michael's true intentions. This lead to Janine fleeing The Square, leaving Michael holding the baby.
On her return she took Scarlett from Michael and banned him from seeing her! Michael managed to manipulate his No.1 fan Alice into sneaking in daddy/daughter meetings - but the stress of this cloak and dagger behaviour became too much for Alice who blurted out the truth to Janine, who quickly found herself in prison after killing Michael.
However, it wasn't long before scheming Janine wriggled her way out, after persuading Kat to file a false witness statement. Walking free after being found not guilty, Janine went to France to be reunited with Scarlett.
