It’s been reported today that newly reunited couple Kat and Alfie Moon – who are played by Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie – are soon to learn that they’re expecting a baby!

According to TV Biz, the couple will find out there’s a new Moon on the way in episodes that will air in the New Year.

Their on-off romance has had the nation hooked as first, they split up when Alfie found out Kat had been having an affair with Derek Branning…

Alfie then began a romance with Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) which ended on their wedding day when, having said ‘I do’, Alfie immediately realised he’d made a mistake.

After an emotional showdown with Roxy, he raced to get to the airport to stop Kat leaving for a new life in Spain with her daughter Zoe. As fans of the show will know, in a Ross and Rachel-esque Get Off The Plane plotline – though nobody made any mention of missing phalanges – Alfie pleaded with Kat to come back to him, and of course, she did.

Initially, Kat was sure they needed to keep a low profile on the Square, but Alfie was insistent that they shouldn’t hide their love. However, that noble gesture is about to lose him his beloved pub…

And that is of course because Alfie’s jilted bride Roxy is Phil Mitchell’s cousin, and Phil (Steve McFadden) owns The Queen Vic…

So as Roxy wouldn’t let Phil beat Alfie to a pulp in the church after he ditched her, Phil’s revenge is to sell the pub to Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) and boot out tenants Alfie and Kat.

We’ll see Mick and his family moving in to the pub on Christmas Day.

But how excited are we that Kat and Alfie are having a baby?!
