“I must have the luckiest boobs in the world,” said Kat Moon at the end of tonight’s EastEnders – and who are we to disagree? After all, husband Alfie had just rubbed a lottery scratchcard on her cleavage for luck, only to then find that they’d scooped a million-pound prize.
In an episode filled with conversations about risk-taking and whether being rich can buy you happiness, the Moons found that a small gamble paid dividends when they won big.
It was a shock change of fortune, especially seeing as Kat had just been denied compensation cash thanks to her suspended sentence. Despite being sanguine about being turned down (“Money is a curse to me. I don’t need it”), this didn’t of course stop Kat from celebrating when she and Alfie realised that the scratchcard they’d just bought was a winning one.
Now, though, the big question is: what will Kat and Alfie do with the money? And it seems viewers are in for shock during Friday’s episode. “The Moons’ dreams have finally come true – but viewers may be surprised by Alfie’s first thoughts on what they should do with the cash,” a show insider told RadioTimes.com.
One thing we do know though is that the pair are to take a break from Walford in the wake of their win. Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace are headed to Ireland to star as Kat and Alfie in their own upcoming six-part series that is due to transmit on BBC1 in 2016.
