Shane Richie surprised co-stars with Eastenders return

Shane Richie surprised co-stars with Eastenders return

So it was a shock to many EastEnders fans to see Alfie Moon make a shock return to the soap on Thursday night's show, as he met up with Hayley Slater leaving many fans wondering whether he is the father of her unborn baby.

Shane Richie has revealed how he kept his return to EastEnders a secret even from his closest co-stars.

Ever since Hayley revealed she was pregnant, speculation has been rife about the father.

Now THAT would be a juicy twist.

Alfie was left reeling when Hayley told him that Kat was actually with another man at the time of the incident and Alfie made a decision to wash his hands of Kat once and for all as he headed back to Spain. That's why Kat sent her to Walford, to keep her away from him as she saw what was happening between them. However, while Hayley wants to start a life with Alfie and become a family, his heart still lies with Kat.

And why does Kat seem to hate Hayley so much?

Conspiracy theorists believe they have the answer!

Speaking to The Mirror he said: 'I met up with (executive producer) John Yorke quite some time ago and he told me about his plans to bring back the Slaters but that Kat and Alfie are not together.

Shane told the Evening Standard he had reprised the role for two episodes, but that it's "certainly not the last you will see of Alfie". Could Alfie's next appearance be in October when Hayley confirmed her baby was due?

When asked how his co-stars reacted, he said: "Jake Wood texted me, Steve McFadden contacted me, saying: 'Are you coming back?' I said, 'No, I'm away filming Benidorm".

A third said: "Hayley and alfie affair that's what I reckon anyway".
