Andy popped the question, Kat said yes, and Alfie was heartbroken.
Alfie interrupting Kat and Andy’s wedding – The Graduate style – to declare his love for Kat was a classic EastEnders moment. But even then it wasn’t all plain sailing for the happy couple. As they planned their Christmas Day wedding, Alfie discovered to his shock that he was actually still married to ex-wife Liza. Oops.
As the wedding day dawned, Alfie cancelled the registrar and instead roped in his mate (played by David Walliams) to hold a fake ceremony. Fortunately for Mr Moon, before Kat got wind of his plan, his decree absolute arrived, the real registrar was tracked down and convinced to leave his Christmas dinner, and Kat and Alfie tied the knot.
In a final romantic gesture, Alfie hired a snow machine to give his bride the white wedding she’d always wanted. Awww.
After three kids together, one secret-son reveal, one secret-daughter reveal, one baby swap, one lottery win, several affairs, and one (well-deserved) shove down the stairs, Alfie and Kat are no longer together. But is it over for the Moons? Watch this space.
