So it was a lie, Alfie is alive, and very well. Billy spots him in the square while Kat is being threatened by the thugs who are after them. In order to save her, Alfie and Billy pose as CIA agents and the lads do a runner. You can then look forward to the former couple arguing over the time they were away and the revelation that Kat is up the Damien with someone else's baby. It's the day of George's christening and Minty thinks he is the resident stud, now that Sam is after him. He agrees to go away with her and is caught having a snog with the Mitchell by Heather. The later lady and Sam have a pretty nasty argument and Richard's mum blurts out that she only wants Minty as she can't find anyone better.
