‘Dunmore EastEnders’: Kat and Alfie head to Waterford for spin-off

0

Eastenders’ stars Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace are swapping the cobbled streets of Walford for the piers and jetties of Waterford.

The pair, who play Alfie and Kat Moon in the popular soap, are due to shoot a new six-part spin off series in the picturesque village of Dunmore East next month.

The series will follow the Moons as they search for Kat’s long-lost son and should hit TV screens this autumn.

Shooting will begin once the pair finish touring with stage show ‘The Perfect Murder’.

Richie says the series will pack an emotional punch, as “Alfie’s got a brain tumour and Kat has a son.”

“To have a whole drama focused around Kat and Alfie is a huge honour for us both and we just can’t wait to start filming,” he added.

Wallace and Ritchie have an extensive fan base in Ireland and brought their stage show to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in February.

Wallace said working on the spin-off series is a dream come true.

“I have always loved working on ‘EastEnders’ so when I heard of this new drama to take Kat and Alfie outside of Walford, I couldn’t believe our luck.

“To be exploring the next chapter for Kat as well as working alongside my best mate, Shane, is a dream come true,” Wallace added.

The four star self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
