'EastEnders' bosses have hinted Alfie and Kat Moon will get back together after Executive Producer Lorraine Newman admitted it would be "foolish" not to revisit their romance
'EastEnders' bosses have hinted Alfie and Kat Moon will get back together.
Executive Producer Lorraine Newman insisted it would be "foolish" not to delve into the separated couple's relationship again after Kat - who is portrayed by Jessie Wallace - was found to have been involved in a long-running affair with bad boy businessman Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman).
Speaking at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards - where 'EastEnders' won the Soap and Continuing Drama BAFTA - at London's Royal Festival Hall last night (12.05.13), she told BANG Showbiz: "It's a great love story and it would be foolish not to revisit it.
"Hopefully they will get back together but you will have to wait and see. There's quite a lot in store over the next few months and more will be revealed in the next few weeks."
Jessie is keen for her alter-ego to reunite with Alfie (Shane Richie) but admits she found it tough to act out her affair because she didn't even find out her character's mystery lover was Derek - who has since died of a heart attack - until much later into the storyline.
She added: "I'd like Kat and Alfie to get back together. There's a lot more there for the couple. There's a lot more out there.
"I didn't know who it was, but Jamie knew. It was very hard to play that with all these looks and the dialogue. But when I found out it was Jamie I was like, 'Oh I can stop this now.' And then he died."
