In next week’s episodes of EastEnders, Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) is still resisting Alfie’s attempts to have his rights to contact with little Tommy made formal through solicitors…
And though things between Kat and Alfie (Shane Richie) are initially cordial, as we’ll see in Monday’s visit to Walford, he’s concerned for the little boy’s wellbeing when on several occasions, he sees Kat’s place is a tip.
So with that in mind, Alfie forges ahead with his planned meeting with his solicitor, and though Jean’s worried about it all, Alfie assures her that Kat knows he’s going, and is fine with it.
However, when Jean (Gillian Wright) later mentions it to Kat, it’s clear she didn’t know about it, nor is she fine with it. Read more & comment »

Fans of EastEnders will know that the long running saga of which Branning brother Kat Moon has been having an affair with will reach a dramatic climax on December 20th when Kat confesses her lover’s identity to long-suffering husband, Alfie Moon.
And ahead of it, Shane Richie, who of course plays Alfie, has revealed that he loved filming the tense scenes for the big reveal with his co-star Jessie Wallace, who plays Kat.
Speaking to Digital Spy, he said, “Playing all of that has been brilliant, especially working with Jessie on those dramatic scenes. I think we do angst very well!”
And when asked if he’s excited for viewers to find out what Kat’s mystery man is, he said, “Most definitely! We filmed the episode two months ago, so we’ve been sitting on this for a long time now. Read more & comment »

EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has revealed that if her character Lauren’s dad Max turns out to be Kat Moon’s mystery lover, Lauren is likely to have a meltdown and “kick off!”
As fans of the show will of course know, the mystery over just who is Kat’s lover has been rumbling on for months now, and though initially five Walford men were in the frame, just three remain…
And those three are Branning brothers Derek (Jamie Foreman) Jack (Scott Maslen) and of course, Max (Jake Wood).
Ray Dixon (Chucky Venn) and Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) have been ruled out in the last few weeks.
But of the prospect that Max is seeing Kat (Jessie Wallace) Jacqueline told the Daily Star, “If Max is Kat’s secret boyfriend then Lauren will be fuming… Read more & comment »
There’s a good deal of drama taking place in the Vic on Monday, beginning with the return of wandering EastEnders residents Kat and Alfie Moon, who’re given short shrift by the perennially grumpy Phil Mitchell!
Also on Monday, Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) is left feeling rather small when he meets the date his brothers Jack (Scott Maslen) and Max (Jake Wood) have set him up with.
But first, of Kat and Alfie’s return, they of course left Phil (Steve McFadden) well and truly up poop creek sans paddle when they decided on a spur of the moment holiday which was designed to heal the rift in their marriage that was caused by Kat’s (Jessie Wallace) latest affair.
However, when they make it clear to Phil that they’re ready to take over the running of the pub again, he proves that the apple didn’t fall too far from the Peggy Mitchell tree when he tells them, “You’ve got no chance! Get outta my pub!” or words to that effect… Read more & comment »
In last night’s EastEnders, we discovered that Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) isn’t Kat Moon’s lover…
I had come to think he was after Ray Dixon (Chucky Venn) was ruled out, so I guess that leaves the main contender to be Max Branning (Jake Wood) who I’d previously thought was Mr X.
However, I have to say, I had thought the show’s bosses had promised us viewers that we’d learn the identity of Mr Lover Lover this week, but I guess I either got it wrong or they did.
But either way, I’m rather much at the point where I’ve stopped caring. I think this storyline has gone on way too long.
And though 7.5million of us tuned in to watch Kat’s confession to the long suffering Alfie (Shane Richie) I’m really not sure how much longer we viewers are prepared to continue to be intrigued by the storyline… Read more & comment »
In last night’s trip to Walford, we saw Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) confessing to Alfie (Shane Richie) that she was, as he suspected, having an affair.
As ever, Alfie took the news in an unsurprised and weary manner, while continuing to lavish affection on his compulsive knicker-dropper wife…
Because of course, it’s not the first time that Kat’s played away. She had an affair with Alfie’s cousin Michael (Steve John Shepherd) which resulted in Kat having Michael’s son Tommy. She also had a brief fling with a delivery man in what might best be described under the headline, Kat In Back Alley Knee Trembler Scandal.
But each and every time, Alfie has not only forgiven Kat, he’s also blamed himself to some degree, assuming that it’s something he can’t offer Kat that she’s seeking elsewhere.
One can only guess at what that might be, and I’ve tried to do just that, via the medium of trying to figure out how big Alfie’s feet are, and/or the distance from his thumb to his forefinger. But to no avail… Read more & comment »
In an episode of EastEnders that’s set to air later this month, Tanya and Max Branning are due to set a date for their wedding, which will of course be their second time down the aisle…
However, as we’re set to find out who’s been bedding Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) this week, I’m thinking that the news about the wedding would indicate that Max (Jake Wood) is out of the running in the whodunit over Kat’s affair.
Mainly because surely Tanya (Jo Joyner) wouldn’t be planning on marrying Max if she learned that he’d been doing the do with Kat?
That said though, I guess that doormat Alfie (Shane Richie) may, for the sake of the mystery man’s other half, keep the news of the affair a secret. He is of course going to hear Kat confess to having been unfaithful yet again in this week’s shows… Read more & comment »
I have to say, EastEnders bosses have done an annoyingly good job of keeping the identity of Kat Moon’s (Jessie Wallace) lover under wraps…
The whodunit – or the Who’s Still Doing It I should say – plotline began with five suspects, namely, all three Branning brothers, Max, Derek and Jack, as well as Michael Moon and Ray Dixon.
Ray (Chucky Venn) was eliminated a few weeks ago now, and while many fans of the show still reckon it’ll turn out to be Jack (Scott Maslen) after the whole ‘I Love You’ message written on a bandage, I became convinced it’d be Max (Jake Wood).
However, as Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) has been more than normally shifty of late, and as his wife Janine (Charlie Brooks) suspects he’s having an affair, he’s surely a good contender… Read more & comment »
In episodes of EastEnders which will air on Thursday, September 13 at 7.30pm and Friday, September 14 at 8pm on BBC1, we’re finally going to learn who it is that Kat Moon has been having an affair with!
As will poor old doormat Alfie (Shane Richie) who has been completely oblivious to the fact that Kat (Jessie Wallace) has been playing away, yet again.
So who will Mr X turn out to be? Well, I think it’s Max (Jake Wood) based only on the fact that when Kat was bandaging up her mystery man after the fight in the Vic, the ‘patient’ wore a black shirt, and of all the men who were brawling, only Max wore a black shirt.
But of course, that may have been a red herring, designed to throw us off the scent, and still in the Mr Lover Lover running are Derek, (Jamie Foreman) Jack, (Scott Maslen) and Michael Moon, (Steve John Shepherd) in addition to Max… Read more & comment »
