EastEnders spoiler: Who will Kat Moon sleep with tonight? Derek, Jack, Ray, Max or Michael?

So, tonight’s the night we have all been waiting for, when Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) will begin her whodunnit storyline as she embarks on an affair with a mystery man in EastEnders.

We reported weeks ago that the storyline was coming where Kat would start seeing someone behind her husband, Alfie’s (Shane Richie) back, and the viewers too, as the man in question was to remain unidentified throughout the plot.

The suspects are listed as Branning brothers Jack, Max (Jake Wood) and Derek (Jamie Foreman) , Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd)and Ray Dixon, and viewers will have watched Kat flirt with every one of them in last night’s episode, but which one will it be?

Max and Derek Branning are probably the least likely outsiders.  Max has form when it comes to married women, engaged women, women in general, and has currently been lacking in the bedroom activity department with ex-wife, Tanya (Jo Joyner).  However, he recently turned down an affair with Roxy, though extremely tempted, instead opting to do the right thing for once and stand by his ex-wife, who had been battling cancer.  Now that things seem to be  slowly returning to normal for Max and Tanya in the physical sense, and the fact that they are now engaged, makes him unlikely to be the mystery man, but never say never, and if recent reports are to be believed, Jo Joyner will be taking a break from the show next year, leaving a big opening for a big exit!

As for Derek, he has been single since joining the cast, but is currently trying to rebuild bridges with his estranged family, but more importantly he remains, in our humble opinion, the least likely suspect, because, come on, would you????

Jack (Scot Maslen) on the other hand has been single since his wife was sent to prison, and has a soft spot in Kat’s heart following the devastation of the baby swap storyline, so perhaps their friendship will develop into something more, especially as he is now on the football team .

Kat and  Michael Moon have a previous affair under their belts, which resulted in the conception of her son, Tommy, but with him now married to  Janine and their premature daughter at death’s door in the hospital, would he have enough time on his hands for an affair?  Charlie Brooks, who plays Janine, is set to leave the show for six months later this year in order to take part in Strictly Come Dancing, so could her exit be linked?  I think it is safe to say he is the current bookies favourite, but as we know, the obvious is never quite as obvious in soap land!

Ray Dixon is currently seeing Kat’s best friend, Kim (Tameka Empson), and was put on the bench of the  football team last night in favour of her husband Alfie.  Could this be how she makes it up to him?   Ray is a family man and we can’t honestly see him being a home wrecker, but Chucky Venn who plays him has publicly said how he would love for the mystery man to be him, so we shall have to wait and see!

In tonight’s episode viewers will see Kat flirting shamelessly with all the suspects again, in particular with  Derek, Max, Jack and Ray ahead of the football team’s first match.

Michael gets her attention also by  offering a gift of football shirts for the team, which Kat gratefully accepts. The team end up losing 4-3 at the game, but show there are no hard feelings by inviting rival team the Old Lions and their manager Vivienne Martinez back to The Vic.

Back at the pub viewers will be treated to tender scenes between Kat and all her possible suitors as she shares a moment with Ray in the kitchen when she burns herself on a hot plate and he rushes to her aid. Then Derek defends Kat when Vivienne badmouths her, taking control on her behalf by throwing Vivienne and the entire Old Lions team out. Also Kat enjoys more flirting with Max outside of the pub, and then later shares a long and meaningful hug with  Michael upstairs after she hands him some of Tommy’s old baby clothes.

Alfie is feeling a tad left out and so Kat promises him some alone time later, but when she goes upstairs to see him he has passed out drunk so Kat goes back down in to the bar.  She is alone in the kitchen when the mystery man enters, obviously to Kat’s delight as she invites him in and gets down to business there and then (we hope the hot plate had been turned off by that point!)

After the deed, Kat retuns behind the bar where all five suspects are sat, but which one was it?

Chucky Venn, who plays Ray Dixon, has admitted that he would love it of his character was Kat’s new man, saying   “Kat’s a saucy minx, and what man wouldn’t want to get involved with her?”

“Ray is a loyal, caring father, but we all have our dark sides. There’s a lot the audience hasn’t seen yet, put it that way.”

However Tameka Empson, who plays his girlfriend Kim,  said that if it was him then there  would almost certainly be  a catfight between her and Kat.

“It would handbags and nails at dawn!” she joked. “Kim and Kat are really good friends, so would Kat really go there? I’m playing detective in between takes, but I’m still none the wiser.”

Who do you think Kat’s mystery man was? Leave your theories below!

    This is so tiring watching Kat go down the same old road .Shes been a slapper long enough and has played it amazingly but i miss the Kat and Alfie .Give them a good story line together rather than Kat the slapper as it makes Alfies character boring without her and puts him in the shadows which is so unfair as he too is amazing .

  2. Chris on July 4, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I think it’s jack moon but we will have to wait and c I don’t like it how kat keeps doing what’s she doing she has only just got back she should be with Alfie and they should be a happy family but it’s never like that in Walford it’s a shame Alfie and kat deserve the happiness mind u lads I’d bang kat

  3. Nora on July 5, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Soooooo sick of watching Kat and her affairs. I just wish that Kat and Alfie could be happy. They have hardly had one moment of happiness from they came back onto the show. If you ask me Kat and Alfie as a couple always made the show more fun and pleasing to watch. So many death, misery, deceit, sickness and unhappy story lines in the past year or so. Please just let one couple be happy and give the rest of us something pleasent to watch.

    It has to be Ray. she luuuuuurves a black man and they had the closer connection. I think she will go through a few more.. Poor Alfie.. Its ruining his character :/

    whot well she say to him

  20. mista rdb on July 5, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    its most likely joe branning or one of the moon brothers. I bet kat likes it reymoundo style.

    or could it be billy mitchell?

  21. Jojo on July 5, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    Little twist… how about it is actually Alfie??

  22. Scott on July 5, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    I’m fed up of watching kat the slapper go down the same road as always. Alfie deserves so much better, he’d do anything for her. Perhaps she’s done it because she thinks Alfie and roxy had a fling whilst she was with her dad Charlie??

    I’d say it’s out of Derek or ray. Ray seems obvious but then again would eastenders want us all to think outside of the obvious and then pull us back in ?

  23. Luke on July 5, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    So sick of all these “who is it”, “who killed archy” jeeez so boring now

  24. Kenmars on July 5, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Its Alfie, probably got a stoaner and wanted to snayk Kat bigtime.. dont yous get excited.. Kats not a slapper anymore.

  25. Scott on July 5, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Kat is still a slapper. Look at all the flirting she does. Her excuse is the ‘football team’ (which by the way were awful)

  26. Shingy on July 5, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    It’s in Kats nature. Shes always done this. Tbh I think it’s non of the football team, it could be a random outsider.

  27. angela on July 5, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    i think its jack or ray because of the chemistry they seem to share

  28. bezza on July 5, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Im with jojo on this one.. alfie!!

  29. Ruben on July 5, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    It was Ben Mitchell

  30. Carmen Miranda on July 5, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    It was Derek! Think back to when Kat said I dont need a Knight in Shinning Armour she just needs a good **** I love Alfie but I dont think he is very adventurous in the bedroom but like most ‘nice’ blokes we love them!

  31. Chris on July 6, 2012 at 1:08 am

    Do me a favour, it’s obviously Ben Mitchell

  32. Geeze on July 6, 2012 at 1:49 am

    Its Darren. First he knocks up Heather, now Kat. Next thing that will happen, is that Ben Mitchell will come along and knock a photo frame over Kat’s head. Then it will start all over again with the next fattest female character on the show. 1) Heather, 2) Kat, 3) Ray’s daughter? Suggestions please…

  33. Eva on July 6, 2012 at 8:36 am

    Jack, defo. Better not be Michael

  34. ton on July 6, 2012 at 8:48 am

    jules i agree with you totally, why cant people type in the proper manner,

    er now who do i think it is mmmm none of the suspected, but we will soon find out.

    love eastenders

  35. Wish the missus lived in the real world on July 8, 2012 at 11:43 am

    For pete sake ITS NOT REAL

  36. raymundo on July 8, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    i think it was WELLARD the dog. we heard he died but i think he faked his death so that he could sleep with kat in 2012 and not get suspected.
    I heard mark died of aids but i think that was also a lie. he gave the aids to kat and now she has spread them all over Albert square and soon all the characters will drop off one by one. the next question will be, who will be the last person to survive the kat/wellard/mark fowler aids epidemic!

  37. jodie on July 9, 2012 at 12:20 am

    wow, predictable storyline. i wish kat would just close her legs for once. alfie is such a nice guy, she is CONSTANTLY cheating. come on, cant the writers be a bit creative?

    i think its gross if its derek. could be micheal, but we havent seen much from jack. so, i think probably him or ray.

  38. jodie on July 9, 2012 at 12:22 am

    i know it isnt but it would be brilliant twist if it was a woman. that would shock people.

  39. Tinu on July 9, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I think its Derek because one one episode he saw Kat at the Minute Mart and he said that the problem with being drunk, is u never knw what happened the night before. Kat: *nervous face*!! But knowing EastEnders, they probs did that to decive us xx

  40. joe on July 9, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Man dun no tingz, mi gan noo who dunnit, waz dat rassclart mi cal sugatitz, aka derik ma bradda. All u wasteclart wana keep choosin den ya gan be loosin, get me? But no seriously I think it was probably derek, just for the fact that it would be hilariously disgusting. And also just for the fact that he looks like a ball bag with a face drawn on. Peace x

  41. Steve on July 24, 2012 at 7:27 am

    Who says its a guy and not a girl? Just a wicked thought……
