The former Queen Vic landlord – who is played by actor Shane Richie in the BBC soap – was revealed to be the mystery man Hayley Slater was meeting in a shocking twist.
As the episode came to an end, Hayley was seen knocking at a flat door which was opened to reveal Alfie.
Viewers know that the cheeky estranged husband of Kat Moon is meant to be living in Spain after surviving brain surgery in Ireland.
But it seems now he has been working with Kat's frenemy cousin for an unknown reason.
The Sun previously revealed how Shane's comeback to the soap was in the works just days after he denied having any plans to return.
His on-screen wife Jessie Wallace returned earlier this year with a host of other Slaters including Big Mo.
In March, a source said: “With Kat’s comeback the writers knew viewers would ask when Alfie would be back too, so they’ve managed to convince Shane to return.
"It won’t be long-term but he’ll play a role in a number of storylines in the coming months.”
Shane and Jessie, 46, were last on screen together in ’Enders spin-off Redwater, set in a fictional Irish village.
It ended with Kat seemingly drowning and Alfie being resuscitated — prompting viewers to speculate if their characters had been killed off.
But now he has definitely been revealed to be alive, but hiding a massive secret.
What could he be working on with Hayley? Or is he the father of her baby and the man she keeps going on about?
Fans have their own theories and flocked to social media with their shock.
