EastEnders’ Alfie Moon is dealt a cruel blow by his ex-wife Kat Moon before Christmas.
EastEnders’ Alfie Moon (played by Shane Ritchie) is crushed when his former love Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) threatens him where it hurts. The hapless barman is looking to raise the spirits of Albert Square with a pantomime on the BBC show. However, Kat does not want their children involved in the production.
Alfie tries to encapsulate the spirit of the famous character Buddy the Elf in upcoming episodes of the soap.
Official spoilers show Alfie drumming up support from the community so he can direct a stage show for the Walford locals.
As always, he tries to enlist some of the more susceptible members of the area to get involved.
Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) is never too far away from assisting in someone’s venture and he lends Alfie a hand.
The pair are struggling financially to commit to a stellar production so they look for their Christmas miracle to get some funding.
Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) is their guardian angel and provides some sponsorship to the persistent duo.
They agree on a deal that satisfies them both, with Sharon agreeing to some coverage for Crunch Time in exchange for money to the pantomime.
Alfie is made up with Sharon and has a moment that will warm the hearts of viewers.
There would not be a plan coming together without the usual suspects in the Square too.
So, Alfie hires Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley), Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) and Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman) to get stuck into the panto.
However, there is one woman Alfie dreams of starring in the show who remains uninterested.
The wannabe thespian approaches Kat to try and persuade her to bring her acting talents on stage.
But, Kat slams down any attempts from her former husband, much to his sorrow.
The killer blow is when she tells him their twins Bert and Ernie are also banned from performing.
Alfie’s big dream this festive period is to unite everyone, but he is unable to do so with his own family.
How will Alfie react to this and will he have something up his sleeve that will aggravate Kat further?
On Thursday Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) announced the sad news when she received a phone call from Ireland, where her step-grandmother was living.
In emotional scenes, Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) will make a shocking return to pay her respects.
There will also be a new face in the form of Reiss Colwell (Jonny Freeman) joining the show, who is a distant relative of the much missed Dot.
