A long-running mystery was solved on EastEnders last night after it was revealed who Kat Moon's mystery lover is.

The storyline has been running since the summer when Kat, played by Jessie Wallace, began an affair with a mystery man with a large group of potential suspects being identified. However, as the months went by it came down to three possible lovers, the Branning brothers, and last night Derek was exposed as Kat's lover.

And there were heated scenes when Kat's husband Alfie (Shane Richie) found out and tackled Derek in the Queen Vic.

A BBC spokeswoman said "After finding out the truth about his wife's affair, Alfie throws everyone out of The Vic.

"However, it is not long before Derek arrives to speak to him but rather than help the situation, Derek maliciously makes things worse.

"Losing his temper, Alfie hits Derek and tells him never to step foot in his pub again."
