KAT GETS AN ALFIE-SHAPED SHOCK
There’s a lot going on in Albert T Square this week. First, we’ll deal with the hoo-hah over Hayley and the baby – and her awful mother Bev, who’s busy hatching a crazy money-making scheme that doesn’t exactly fit into any dreams Hayley might have about bonding with her child. After one harsh word too many, Hayley calls Jean in desperation, and there’s a big shouting match down at the Tube station between Bev and Kat – leopard print flying everywhere. On Thursday, Kat is stunned to get a video call from Alfie (this follows something hush-hush that will be revealed on the night). She’s all of a dither, and then, after calling him back, he gives her some instructions, and she’s shocked to find him waiting for her – in person, larger than life. But hang on, where are the twins? He breaks the news that the boys are still in Spain, and Kat goes a bit ballistic (plenty of other, Hayley-related stuff to occupy them both soon though, eh?). Elsewhere, Max – who hasn’t been around much lately – is stunned to discover Cora knows his marriage to Rainie is fake, and that Rainie and Jack slept together. This causes mayhem as it means Max’s chances of getting his mitts on baby Abi look like virtually nil. Then, the cops show up to take the tot, and Max is gutted.
