Charlie Brooks plans road trip
Charlie Brooks will use her six-month sabbatical from 'EastEnders' to take a road trip around Europe with her daughter
Charlie Brooks plans to go on a road trip round Europe during her 'EastEnders' break.
The 30-year-old actress will take six months off from playing pregnant villainess Janine Molloy in August and is looking forward to an extended holiday with her seven-year-old daughter Kiki.
She said: "I've got six months off in August to have a little bit of breathing space, me and Kiki in a camper van around Europe, we're going to have a big old road trip."
Meanwhile, Charlie - who has been linked with a place in the next series of 'Strictly come Dancing' - thinks her 'EastEnders' alter ego has changed since the death of stepmother Pat Evans (Pam St. Clement) earlier this year.
Speaking on 'This Morning', she said: "I think when she was faced with death like that, once again after her grandma died, and then Pat went and I think it made her question her life a bit."
The actress believes her character's current relationship with Michael Moon works because they both want love.
She added: "She's always been desperate to be loved, they're kindred spirits in that I think."
