EastEnders fans point out Janine Butcher’s blunder as she blackmails Jada Lennox

EastEnders fans were left confused on Monday's episode as they pointed out Janine Butcher's blunder as she blackmailed Jada Lennox amid her plan to destroy Linda Carter.

During the latest episode, Janine offered Jada money to plant empty bottles of alcohol and to call social services, pretending that Linda was drinking again.

However, Jada had a change of heart as she refused to go along with the scheme and even accused Janine of being "jealous" due to Linda's bond with her ex Mick Carter, who is dating Janine.

Yet Janine was quick to hit back as she played a recording of Jada agreeing to go along with the plan as she blackmailed her into setting Linda up.

However fans were left confused as they pointed out that Janine was also in the recording and that the evidence was just as incriminating for her as well as Jada.

Taking to Twitter, one person said: "Janine’s plan tonight made no sense cause why would she release that audio of Jada when she’s in it aswell knowing she’ll lose just as much as Jada #EastEnders."

A different account put: "I feel like Janine shot herself in the foot there with that voice evidence – it was her voice on the recording that threatened Jada to go against Linda – if the police got wind of that they'll think that she was coerced into going against Linda."

Another follower said: "If I were Jada, I would've reminded Janine that she's on the recording, too! So, if Jada goes down, Janine's going down! #Eastenders."

A different soap watcher wrote: "Janine would incriminate herself too if she played that recording? #EastEnders."

While another viewer added: "That’s just so stupid, Janine would never play that recording because she would have just as much to lose aswell #EastEnders."

Later in the episode, a social worker popped by the premises after the fake call where they spotted all the planted bottles of booze and a bruise on Annie’s arm, resulting them in taking the child to hospital.

A sobbing Linda was left devastated as she insisted that she hadn't hurt her baby as she chased after her daughter before collapsing into Mick's arms while Janine watched on.
