Kat and Alfie hope for good news when they head to the council office but their optimism doesn't last long when they are told there is a huge waiting list for a house, however there are houses in Hull. They are faced with a life-changing decision but none of that really matters as tonight Kat finally discovers the truth about Alfie. Not sure HOW they are going to manage to get passed this one, but they'll have to.. right?? On a much happier note, Christmas arrives at The Vic as they open up a grotto with Stan dressed as Santa, and Shirley and Johnny taking on the roles of elves. Yep, Shirley will be an elf. This we will have to see.
