EastEnders: Roxy’s crush on Alfie becomes public knowledge, much to Derek’s glee!
As fans of EastEnders will know, Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) is developing quite a crush on Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) – who she very annoyingly calls ‘granddad’ – and next week, her BFF Christian Clarke (John Partridge) is set to find out about it.
It all begins when Alfie leaps to Roxy’s defence after she gets into a row in the pub, which leaves Roxy delighted at her “Knight in shining armour”.
Both Christian and Derek immediately see what’s going on, and while Christian decides to talk to Roxy about it – and advise her to tell Alfie how she feels – Derek cooks up a plan to send Alfie away on a mystery “job.”
And just to wind Roxy up, he hints that there’s something sinister going on, and that Alfie’s in danger. However, later that day, Alfie turns up at the Queen Vic as right as rain, where a frantic Roxy has worked herself up into a state of panic…
But he tells her that he was only doing Derek’s laundry, so of course, she knows immediately that Derek made a fool of her.
See that little drama playing out on EastEnders on Thursday, April 19 at 7.30pm on BBC1.
