Kat and Alfie to make EastEnders comeback

Actors Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie are to reprise the roles of Kat and Alfie in EastEnders this autumn, it has been announced.

Alfie and Kat Moon were last seen on Christmas Day in 2005, when they left Walford for a new life in the US.

Wallace said she was "excited" to "slip back into Kat's stilettos".

Richie added: "I'm very much looking forward to returning to EastEnders to find out what Alfie has been up to and what the future has in store for him."

'Iconic couples'

The star, who became a firm favourite with fans of the show said he was "looking forward to getting my face covered in Kat's lipstick again".

John Yorke, controller of continuing drama, said: "Kat and Alfie are one of EastEnders' most loved and iconic couples so they're bound to get a very warm welcome from viewers when they return to Walford.

"We've had so many new and interesting characters settle into Albert Square since Kat and Alfie departed that it's going to make for fantastic viewing when the feisty, fun duo ride back into the East End."

Kat was best known for her love of wearing short skirts and revealing tops and Alfie was often described as a "loveable rogue".

The pair married on Christmas Day 2003, after Kat broke off her engagement to local gangster Andy Hunter.

At the moment the storyline that is dominating the soap is "who killed Archie Mitchell?".

The murderer will be revealed during a live episode on 19 February to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary.

Police find Castle's stolen car

The GMTV host said he held little hope of seeing his £40,000 Jaguar XF again after it disappeared from his street in Balham, south London - but an eagle-eyed beat officer spotted it abandoned and undamaged in Norbiton, south-west London, two weeks later.

Former British No 1 tennis player Andrew, 46, said: "I was a bit shocked by the phone call from police as I never expected the car would be found - I was quickly told that it had been found and it had not been damaged at all, my day just got brighter."

Christine's not so confident she can do it: "This is the first day, I've only done 10-15 minutes and already I'm kackered and I'm thinking, 'Hang on a second, think of all the elements involved crossing the Channel...' It's just daunting."
