Shane Richie to return to EastEnders

Shane Richie is to make a sensational return to EastEnders as loveable rogue Alfie Moon.

Richie, 45, who left the soap in 2005, will be back later this year. A spokeswoman for EastEnders said the star would be back on screen by the autumn.

Richie added: "I'm looking forward to finding out what Alfie has been up to and what the future has in store for him." Shane became an instant hit when he joined BBC1's flagship soap in 2002. He went on to become half of one of soap's top double-acts with screen wife Kat Moon.

It has not been decided if Wallace, who left the show at the same time, will also be returning. Dad-of-four Richie, who is married to second wife Christie Goddard, has struggled to find work since leaving Albert Square. Last year he was cast as Arthur Daley in Five's heavilyhyped remake of the 80s comedy-drama Minder.

But despite heavy promotion the show was canned after one series due to its having lost a million viewers.
