Shane Richie promises big storylines ahead
In recent months Alfie has been left to his own devices in the Queen Victoria as wife Kat is away looking after her father who suffered a stroke. In real life actress Jesse Wallace took a break from the show after her wedding was called off.
Recently soap fans have seen Richie's character begin a flirtation with Roxy Mitchell suggesting that there could be more to come for these characters.
Speaking on The One Show Richie said: "It's such a pleasure working with Rita. It's interesting about some of the publications - the ones that are interested in soaps - how they've said Alfie is going to go off with Roxy. But as soon as Alfie does that, he loses the moral high ground.
"But I had a meeting today, funnily enough, about future storylines - and they're going to be incredible. Because Jessie's back at work now after having a little break.
"I can only say, stuff that happened last year is nothing compared to what's going to happen over the next 12 months. It's going to be incredible."
