EastEnders' Roxy Mitchell sells her share of R&R to Janine Malloy to get revenge on her cousin Phil.
The mouthy blonde - played by Rita Simons - is furious when the hardman warns her she has no nose for business and should sell her stake in the club to him.
Howeverm, his cruel comments backfire when she instead decides to sell to Janine (Charlie Brooks), who has become a millionaire following the death of her grandmother.
Phil (Steve McFadden) still has a grudge against the schemer after she embarked on a relationship with Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb) when he split from his mother Peggy (Barbara Windsor) and is furious to learn she is his new business partner.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "There will be fireworks when Phil and Janine are forced to work together. There's certainly no love lost between them.
"Janine is keen to become a real entrepreneur now she's rich, but Phil tries to do everything in his power to get rid of her.
"But she's determined to get her feet under the table and it looks like Phil may be forced to tolerate her."
