Shane Richie lets slip a huge Eastenders spoiler before gatecrashing the weather on GMB
When quizzed about what will happen in tonight's show, the actor accidentally revealed he is Hayley Slater's boyfriend.
He made the blunder while talking about keeping his return to Albert Square a secret.
Shane said: "We said we're going to bring back Alfie for these particular story lines. Tonight is the big reveal.
"I couldn't even tell Jessie and she's one of my best friends.
"All the cast got a script and they had this moody name in it. I can't remember what it was, Richard or Robin or something, and everyone said 'who is this Hayley's boyfriend?'.
"No one guessed. But Jake Wood and Steve McFadden texted me, asking if I'm coming back.
"I said no I'm away filming Benidorm but of course I wasn't."
When shocked presenter Kate Garraway asked Shane if he'd just given away a major spoiler, the actor joked: "Am I losing you?"
He added: "You have to watch tonight because there is a back story as to why Kat and Alfie aren't together at the moment."
After finishing up his interview, Shane delivered the weather for this Bank Holiday weekend weather forecast.
EastEnders fans were last night convinced that Alfie is the father of Hayley’s unborn baby.
Viewers came up with the conspiracy theory when it was revealed Hayley’s mystery man Dean was in fact Kat’s estranged husband.
