Kat and Alfie are to return to EastEnders, this Christmas on BBC One.
The long-term couple will be returning from Spain to visit Stacey this Christmas, however all is not what it seems…
Speaking of their return Shane said “I’m really excited to be heading back to EastEnders with Jessie this Christmas.
“It’s wonderful to be back in Walford and to be playing out several big twists to Kat and Alfie’s story that will set the scene for their new life in Ireland.”
Jessie added: “I can’t wait to start filming these episodes. The drama that Kat and Alfie have in store when they return to Walford is huge and although secrets will be revealed, more questions will be raised leading them to head off to Ireland in search of answers…”
And the show’s top boss, Dominic Treadwell-Collins, explained: “Christmas in Walford is always the perfect time for uncomfortable family reunions – and Kat and Alfie’s brief return will lead tears, laughter… and a mountain of secrets being unearthed for the Slater family.
“As Kat and Alfie hold on to each other and their marriage, the discovery that Kat has a secret son will lead to seismic waves through the Slaters – and ultimately lead to the Moons realising that the answers to so many questions lie across the sea in Ireland.”
