Fans of EastEnders will of course know that Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) is in love with her former boss Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) however, so far, other than some minor flirting to get Alice to do his bidding, he has never responded to her advances…
But that’s all set to change next week when, after yet more stress over the fact that his ex-wife Janine (Charlie Brooks) has left the Square with his daughter Scarlett, Michael does respond to Alice’s come-on, and the two end up sharing a night of passion!
The drama begins on Monday, June 10, when Michael steals the keys that Alice has to Janine’s house so that he can look through Janine’s belongings to see if she’s taken hers and Scarlett’s passports with her… Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders will know that nanny Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) is thoroughly smitten with her former boss Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) and though on the face of it, Alice is a naïve and innocent lamb to the slaughter – as far as scheming Michael is concerned at any rate – she’s tried to seduce the dad-of-one on a couple of occasions…
However, her dream of being Michael’s significant other may in fact become a nightmare after the pair share a night of passion! Read more & comment »

Janine Moon is of course back in Walford, and she’s determined to get custody of her baby daughter Scarlett, and unluckily for her estranged husband Michael – who has of course been singlehandedly looking after Scarlett for months – Janine has the money to pay for top flight lawyers, while he does not!
However, when we see the episode that airs on Monday, April 29, Michael (Steve John Shepherd) is determined that he’ll do whatever it takes to keep Scarlett, and to that end – as Janine (Charlie Brooks) is due to spend time with her daughter – Michael secretes a baby monitor in among the baby’s things so that he can eavesdrop on what happens when Janine’s left alone with Scarlett… Read more & comment »
Janine Moon has a lot of bridges to build in Walford if she’s intent on sticking around, and it seems she is since next week, we’ll see her reopening Butcher’s Joints and trying to get on top of goings on at R&R while all the while, plotting to get custody of her daughter Scarlett…
She of course left Scarlett with her dad Michael (Steve John Shepherd) last year, and though at first, Michael was fuming to be left literally holding the baby, since then, he’s grown into the role of single parent, and is now determined that Janine (Charlie Brooks) won’t simply waltz back into his life and get custody of their daughter.
However, wealthy Janine has plenty of cash to hire top lawyers to fight her custody battle for her, while Michael does not – and as we’ll see this week, he tries and fails to sell his share of the gym to raise money – but he does realise that he has a secret weapon in that Janine isn’t naturally the maternal sort… Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders will surely know that Walford villain Janine Moon is headed back to the Square, and her return prompts the final storylines for Steve John Shepherd, who plays Janine’s husband Michael…
Steve announced that he was leaving the show earlier this year, but as yet, it hasn’t been revealed exactly how he’ll be written out.
However, when asked for how she’d like to see him leave, Charlie Brooks, who of course plays Janine, said, “I would like Janine to destroy Michael! That’s what I want!”
Charlie returns to EastEnders on Thursday 18 April, and as we reported earlier this week, she’s intent on getting back custody of her baby daughter Scarlett, but Michael is equally as determined that she won’t… Read more & comment »
In the episode of EastEnders that airs on Thursday, April 18, Janine Moon (Charlie Brooks) makes a return to the Square totally out of the blue, and of course, her homecoming stuns her abandoned husband Michael…
The drama begins as he and Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) meet up at Michael’s to talk about Tommy once again, and when he opens the door to find Janine on the doorstep, he can only gape as a confident Janine waltzes in, evidently amused to see Kat sitting there.
She immediately assumes that Kat and Michael (Steve John Shepherd) are an item, but Kat puts her straight right away while she and Michael begin to quiz Janine about where she’s been all this time… Read more & comment »

Fans of EastEnders will of course know that single dad Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) has only just given Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) her job back as nanny to his baby girl, Scarlett…
However, as we’ll see in next week’s episodes, cash strapped Michael is left embarrassed when he can’t afford to pay Alice, so he comes up with a somewhat bizarre suggestion as to how they might raise some cash!
It all begins on Monday, March 4th when Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) asks Alice to repay the money she loaned her the week before. Alice says she just has to get her wages from Michael, and goes off to do just that… Read more & comment »
Now that Janine (Charlie Brooks) has left her husband Michael Moon very literally holding the baby, he’s struggling to cope with the demands of being a single parent who’s trying to earn a living…
So when his former girlfriend Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) sees how swamped he is, she offers her help in taking care of baby Scarlett so that Michael can get his businesses organised.
However, it seems that her kind gesture could lead to a rekindling of their former romance!
Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, Steve John Shepherd, who plays Michael, said, “Michael’s feeling completely out of his depth looking after baby Scarlett alone at this point.
“He hasn’t had any prior experience with caring for young children, and has no natural instincts whatsoever… Read more & comment »
In tonight’s episode of EastEnders, we’ll see newly single dad Michael Moon struggling to keep Janine’s businesses afloat as well as take care of his baby daughter Scarlett…
Both Michael and Scarlett have of course been abandoned by Janine (Charlie Brooks) who left the Square last Friday, having taken to heart Michael’s accusation that she isn’t fit to look after their daughter.
So, left literally holding the baby, Michael (Steve John Shepherd) finds he has to rely heavily on Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) to keep things ticking over at Butcher’s Joints, however, it’s about to transpire that Michael doesn’t need to concern himself about the home rental agency any longer!
The drama tonight begins when Billy turns up at Michael’s with a document from Janine’s solicitor which reveals that she’s wound up the company, and Butcher’s Joints is no longer trading… 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 »
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 forthcoming episodes of EastEnders, we’re going to see that tired and stressed out new mum Janine Moon becomes increasingly suspicious about her husband Michael’s behaviour…
She already thinks he may be having an affair – and of course, he’s in the running to be Kat Moon’s mystery man – and of course, since he made her tear up their pre-nup on the day of their wedding, she’s long suspected he’s only hanging around for her money.
So, in an all or nothing decision, Janine (Charlie Brooks) presents Michael (Steve John Shepherd) with an ultimatum which boils down to, “It’s the cash or me…”
Not even giving him the option of phoning a friend, Janine will place a bag full of cash in front of Michael, and tell him that he can have all the money, but if he takes it, it’s the end of their marriage and the end of his contact with his daughter, Scarlett… Read more & comment »
The mystery of who is Kat Moon’s lover has of course been going on for a few weeks now, though of late, the storyline has taken something of a back seat amid the drama of Sharon’s return and the big Ben Mitchell murdered Heather reveal…
However, it’s set to feature fairly prominently again in upcoming episodes, and in tonight’s trip to Walford we’ll see that Janine (Charlie Brooks) begins to suspect that her husband Michael (Steve John Shepherd) is playing away.
But is it Kat (Jessie Wallace) that he’s playing with? Or is Janine’s paranoia just that and he is in fact not seeing anybody? Well, we won’t know for sure until the mystery lover is unmasked on September 14th…
However, tonight, when Tanya (Jo Joyner) sees that Janine looks harassed and tired, she takes her aside for a chat, and the ice queen façade that Janie normally wears melts as she confides some of her worries, including how difficult she’s finding it to be a mum… Read more & comment »
