‘EastEnders’ fans finally got to find out who the lucky winners of the much-hyped £1 million scratchcard was on Thursday night, when Kat and Alfie Moon hit the jackpot.
For months, bosses have been teasing that one Walford resident would scoop a huge sum of cash, and we are delighted that the unlucky couple have finally got some good news.
Breathe in, breathe out. Alfie and Kat have only gone and won a million quid!May 7, 2015
After purchasing the scratchcard with his last £1, Alfie rubbed it on Kat’s boob (natch), before scratching it off and learning of his pending windfall.
Hundreds of fans took to Twitter following the episode, and the general consensus was that bosses couldn’t have picked a more deserving pair:

And of course, there were some topical jokes among the joyous tweets:
Kat and Alfie win £1million. BBC is giving us 5 minutes of happiness before we find out Conservatives are in power for another 5 years.— Quirked Geek (@QuirkedGeek) May 7, 2015
Kat and Alfie win a million pounds, so that might just be able to afford a one bedroom flat in London then #EastEnders— Ian Harris (@bognorb) May 8, 2015
Kat and Alfie won’t be hanging around in Walford though, as they’re set to head off for Ireland in the near future.
They won’t be disappearing from our TV screens though, as Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace are set to star in a spin-off show, that will chart what the couple get up to next.
