Kat to cheat on Alfie
Haven't we been here before? Who's the mystery man this time?
Kat Moon (played by Jessie Wallace) is set to return to Walford, and to celebrate coming back to Albert Square, EastEnders’ writers have written a shock storyline which will see her cheat on her much-loved husband Alfie (Shane Ritchie) with a mystery lover.
TV bosses are so keen to keep the identity of Kat’s fling a mystery, that they haven’t even shared the secret with the other cast members!
However EastEnders’ insiders have revealed that there are five characters in the frame, including Ray Dixon, Michael Moon and Branning family members Max, Derek and Jack.
The feisty Queen Vic landlady, who returns to the show tomorrow night (June 7), apparently will start the affair because her feelings for Alfie have faded away.
A BBC insider told The Sun: “Kat returns but she soon feels the spark has fizzled out with Alfie. She finds it hard to resist when someone else showers her with affection. Kat tries to call off her affair but she finds her mystery lover impossible to resist.”
The source added: “Viewers will be left guessing who Kat’s mystery man is.”
Jessie Wallace, who is now dating musican Tim Arnold, has been absent from the show for several months following her traumatic split from fiancé Vince Morse, after EastEnders bosses granted the actress time off to recover.
