Is Alive alive?! If so, is he coming back to Walford? We need answers!
EastEnders recently gave fans a triple surprise by announcing that Kat Moon, alongside Big Mo and Jean Slater, are all returning to Walford in 2018.
However, with no mention of Alfie, fans have been left waiting anxiously for news on the beloved former landlord.
Alfie – played by Shane Richie – was last seen in Kat and Alfie: Redwater, a spin-off show which concluded with both Kat and Alfie’s lives being left on the line.
Kat was seen left-for-dead in an Irish sea, whilst Alfie was undergoing surgery for his cancer when doctors lost his pulse. Neither characters have been seen or heard of since.
The spin-off was not renewed, worrying many fans we’d never find out the characters’ fates.
As Kat is returning, it is safe to say she made it out alive – but there’s absolutely no mention of Alfie.
Interestingly, Kat isn’t coming to Walford with any of her children. Could Alfie have survived too and, if so, is he looking after the kids abroad?
Let us know what you think in the comments section below – do you think Alfie survived? If he did, surely he can’t be far behind Kat?
EastEnders airs the Slater reunion in Spring 2018.
