Shane Richie hints Kat and Alfie will reunite
The married couple have been estranged since Alfie discovered Kat was having an affair with Derek Branning.
Shane, who picked up the award for best Soap Personality at the Tric Awards this week, said: "Somehow Kat and Alfie, just they can't keep away from each other."
The star said of the dramatic affair scenes: "It was one of the very rare occasions on EastEnders when you got a chance to rehearse.
"We spent two or three days rehearsing before me and Jessie shot our actual half-hour episode we did within that bedsit."
"Normally you just hit the ground running," he said. "You've got to have your emotions at your fingertips, one minute you're crying over someone that's been murdered, the next you're throwing a party in the Vic. That can all be in the space of half an hour. As an actor you've got to step up to the mark."
