From the looks of it, Alfie Moon’s dreams are coming true, for here is Albert Square transformed into a German market just in time for Christmas.
As we saw in last night’s episode, Alfie, with Fat Boy in tow, headed off to Cologne to pick up supplies for the E20 extravaganza. The lovable landlord received a ticket and £500 from a mysterious benefactor – the very same person, it seems, who has been having an affair with Alfie’s wife Kat.
It has been previously reported that the identity of Kat’s lover will be revealed before Christmas, while the soap’s festive episodes will see Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) meet an untimely end.
But despite all the heartache and death, the EastEnders residents still know how to have a good time – even if the merriment is restricted to behind-the-scenes action from the likes of David Witts, Ricky Norwood, Letitia Dean and Tameka Empson!
