EastEnders threw in a cheeky little reference to its upcoming spin-off show in tonight’s episode when Stacey revealed that Kat and Alfie are headed to Ireland.
Kat & Alfie: Redwater is due to begin on BBC1 this Thursday at 8:00pm – and Stacey got her own personal tip-off thanks to a postcard she received.

Stacey then told husband Martin that she’s unaware as to what Kat is up to, pointing out she’s prone to keeping people guessing.
Obviously, Stacey has been steering clear of the press, otherwise she’d have already discovered that Kat is set to embark on a quest to find her long-lost son.
Speaking recently about the upcoming drama, actress Jessie Wallace said: “She wants to find her son. She didn’t realise that she had another child when Zoe was born, and 32 years later she learns that she also had a son, a twin brother to Zoe.
“She finds out exactly where he is and she goes to find him. She’s at a point where she wants peace and to settle down, with no more drama in her life.”
