Whilst on the show, Lorraine asked where Alfie is now and if he’d return. Shane replied saying: “Alfie is still I believe, I speak to Jessie [Wallace] all the time, funnily enough I’m seeing her this week.

“Alfie is still on the run in Spain running a bar somewhere in Costa Del Sol.

“And I think he still owes money to Phil. And I know that Kat and Phil Mitchell are bumping ugly at the moment.

“They’re getting together so who knows? There might be a chance that Alfie could turn up and spoil that little party… but you didn’t hear that from me.”
