EastEnders spoilers - Kat goes to meet Alfie

Kat wonders why Alfie has sent her to a random hall.

Realising that Hayley needs her, Kat puts her own worries to one side and focuses on helping… but when Alfie keeps ringing Kat’s phone, she is forced to cancel his calls and is left wondering what is so desperate that he needs to speak to her so urgently.

It’s only when Kat calls him back that Alfie gives her directions to a hall. Kat follows his request and heads to his chosen location – but she’s in for the shock of a lifetime when she arrives, only to find him waiting for her.

Kat is stunned when she comes face-to-face with Alfie.

Kat’s fuming that Alfie’s back in London and he didn’t tell her, but while she gets her head around seeing him for the first time in months, there’s only one question she wants answered. Where are her kids?

However, Kat’s hopes at seeing her boys are soon dashed when Alfie reveals that they’re not with him and are still in Spain. But if he’s not back with the kids, what exactly is he back for?

Why is Alfie back from Spain?

Alfie tries to explain everything to Kat, but while she struggles to understand, she comes to a huge decision. Will she listen to what her ex has to say, or will she walk out before he has a chance to finish?

With the secret that Alfie is Hayley’s baby daddy still under wraps, how long will it be before the truth comes tumbling out?
