EastEnders‘ Kat and Alfie Moon are over the moon to welcome twin sons – Bert and Ernie.

Kat’s waters break while she is at the hospital with Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) and after struggling through labour she gives birth to two healthy young boys.

Kat (Jessie Wallace) and Alfie (Shane Richie) already have a son, Tommy, whose biological father is Alfie’s cousin Michael Moon, but are delighted to welcome Bert and Ernie together.

The twins’ arrival comes following a dramatic week for both Kat and Alfie after Jean turned up on their doorstep with a plan to free her jailed daughter Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner).

The twin boys arrive on EastEnders tonight (Friday August 8).
