EastEnders’ Alfie Moon is set to be heartbroken when he discovers the true identity of his wife’s mystery lover this Christmas.
The storyline about Kat’s secret affair with one Albert Square resident, which has run for months since August, has kept viewers on tenterhooks but is due to reach its tantalising climax during the festive period.
“In a web of lies and betrayal, deep secrets begin to unravel in EastEnders this Christmas,” a spokesperson revealed.
Shane Richie plays the cheeky landlord of the Queen Vic, while Jessie Wallace portrays his wife Kat.
“Alfie’s heart is ripped apart when he uncovers the devastating truth about Kat’s affair but he is shocked when he finds out that Kat’s lover is so close to home,” the spokesperson added.
Ray Dixon (Chucky Venn), Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd), Max Branning (Jake Wood), Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) were among the suspects but Ray and Michael were later eliminated from the line-up.
The Daily Star has predicted that Kat will come clean to Alfie about her mystery man in front of a roomful of customers in the pub.
