Review by:

The residents of Albert Square change partners quicker than dancers doing the do-si-do at a hoedown. Max Branning does it all the time. So does Jack. But even Alfie’s got the love bug now, immediately shacking up with Roxy after discovering that Kat had cheated on him with Derek.

Up until now it’s not been clear what he feels about Kat — he’s talking divorce, but his eyes tell a different story and Kat’s hopeful he wants a reconciliation. Sadly, an amicable meeting between them ends up in a slanging match and it’s not long before — “heel and toe/here we go” — Kat seeks solace in the arms of someone else.

About this programme

Alfie asks Kat if they can meet later to talk, convincing Bianca he is still in love with his wife and wants to give their marriage another go - but as Kat soon finds out, her friend's belief couldn't be further from the truth. Lola is annoyed to discover Phil has been back a few days without telling her - and when she asks to see Lexi he bluntly informs her she will have to wait until he has had a meeting with the social worker, who subsequently says something he'd rather not hear. Whitney starts her job at the community centre, only to make the mistake of moaning about new boss Ava to Dexter, Lauren bonds with stepmum Kirsty over a bottle of wine, and Patrick tells Denise he is moving to Scotland.
