Inside Charlie Brooks’ incredible New York flat as EastEnders legend quits the UK | The Sun

EASTENDERS legend Charlie Brooks has shown fans her amazing new home after moving to New York.

Charlie, 42, — who played villainess Janine Butcher in the BBC soap for more than 1,000 episodes — left in 2022 after a brief return.

In a land far away from Walford, she's now living on the east coast of America where she's just snapped up a lavish flat.

The actress gave fans a glimpse of her latest pile as she took to Instagram today with a video.

In the clip, Charlie was seen lounging on an orange armchair in her open-plan living room, which features a large book display, a piano and wooden table.

As the camera panned around, a kitchen unit became visible too.

She layered her post with Paul Weller's Wild Wood and wrote in her caption, "New digs. New city. New country. New York."

Charlie's UK pad is pretty lavish too.

Earlier this year, The Sun revealed she was splashing out on a Grand Designs-style makeover of her £1.5million Surrey home – to make it easier for her ex to pop over.

The soap icon lives downstairs while Ibiza nightclub owner Tony Truman stays in the flat above to help raise her daughter Kiki, in a highly-unusual living arrangement.

She wanted to extend her five-bedroom home and build a new external stairway so Tony, who she split from in 2007, can pop down to see her and share the garden.

Tony, 55, applied to the local council for planning permission for a two-storey rear extension to create two new master bedrooms, complete with his and hers walk-in wardrobes.

He also applied for a single storey side extension for a new enlarged main entrance door and a bigger loft conversion including dormer windows and roof lights.

In papers filed at the council, their planning agent said: 'Flats are currently owned by the same family, thus they are both consenting to install said access staircase between each of their respective demises being from the balcony of flat A down to the garden of flat B.

If, in the future, any of the properties would be sold and an external member of the public purchased/took ownership; the staircase would be removed and upper balcony timberwork be 'made good.'

Charlie was also planning a major facelift of her home with a new timber cladding, new painted render to the first floor, new patio doors and juliet balcony.

There will also be new dormer windows, new sash windows and a privacy screen surround to the first floor landing and balcony, in keeping with her celebrity status.
