Alfie Moon may have said “I do” at his wedding to Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) in last night’s EastEnders, but that’s far from the end of the story, as these dramatic new pictures highlight.
With Alfie torn over who he should be with following Kat’s sudden appearance at the ceremony, he makes a sudden dash across town to stop his ex-wife from flying off to Ibiza.
“He steals a pizza man’s bike! It’s a great chase to stop the plane,” says Shane Richie. “Who else would try and stop a plane on the runway other than Alfie? It was brilliant to film – we did night shoots at Southend until four or five in the morning for about a week. You’ve got Alfie buying a ticket just as the gate is closing, but he does end up getting dragged off by airport security.”
To find out whether Alfie reconciles with Kat or opts to spend his future with Roxy, watch EastEnders when it airs these scenes tonight on BBC1 at 7.30pm.
