It’s all over for the Moons’ marriage as these pictures from a forthcoming episode highlight.
In the coming weeks, viewers will see Alfie (Shane Richie) ask his estranged wife Kat (Jessie Wallace) to come and talk with him at the Vic, leaving the lovelorn Mrs Moon wondering about his motives. Bianca (Patsy Palmer) reckons that Alfie still cares for her, but Kat’s hopes are dashed when Alfie heartbreakingly tells her about his plans for a divorce.
Kat is devastated and tells Alfie they could still make things work, but Alfie is clear he can no longer trust her and that they have no future.
Kat and Alfie’s marriage broke down at the end of 2012 when it was revealed that she’d been having an affair with Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman). Since then, Alfie has taken up with pub manager Roxy (Rita Simons), although his ties to Kat remain strong due to their joint responsibility for young Tommy Moon.
Viewers can see Alfie’s shock announcement in the episode set to transmit on Monday 18 February at 8.00pm on BBC1.
