Following Kat’s (Jessie Wallace) forthcoming disclosure about her mystery man, Alfie (Shane Richie) will call time on his marriage and seek solace in the arms of Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons).
And with Kat no longer welcome at the Vic, it isn’t long before Alfie and Roxy are sharing an intimate moment under the mistletoe and making plans to move in together.
A show insider today told RadioTimes.com: “After finding out the truth about Kat’s affair, Alfie’s world is turned upside down, but it’s not long before Roxy makes her feelings for Alfie known. But is Alfie moving on too soon?”
Shane Richie recently said of the moment Alfie discovers the identity of Kat’s lover: “Alfie just really gets his balls and goes, ‘Right. Enough is enough. I don’t care about you any more, Kat. I’m not interested in what you’ve got to say. You’re filth, you’re disgusting. Not only have you done this, but you’ve done this with one of our friends.’”
