EastEnders star Shane Richie has said that fans are in for a big surprise involving his character Alfie and wife Kat (Jessie Wallace).

Warning: spoiler alert!

Next week, viewers will see Alfie ask for a divorce, which will drive Kat into the arms of another man.

However, in an interview with All About Soap, Richie said that while Kat's actions appeared to be the "final nail in the coffin", "something else happens" which will lead viewers to believe that "there's more to come with Kat and Alfie".
