EastEnders News: Kat and Alfie Moon to adopt Shenice!

And Charlie G Hawkins is leaving the show

As viewers may recall, Kat and Alfie Moon were heartbroken when Kat’s friend Martina took her young daughter Shenice back to Spain with her…

The couple had bonded with the little girl in the wake of baby Tommy’s death, but of course since then, Tommy has been returned to them.

However, when the couple decide to take a well earned break to Spain, they bump into Martina and Shenice, and after finding that the child isn’t being properly cared for, Kat and Alfie bring her back to Walford with them.

A show insider told The Sun, “Poor old Shenice has not been having a great time in Spain with her mum, who won’t win any prizes for mother of the year.

“Martina may be an old friend, but Kat is fed up because she keeps neglecting her daughter and going on the razz.

“She seems incapable of settling down.”

Shenice is played by Lacey Turner’s nine-year-old sister Lily Harvey, and we’ll see her return to the show within the next few weeks.

In other news, it was reported over the weekend that Zoe Lucker – who plays Vanessa Gold – would be leaving the show soon, and it seems Charlie G Hawkins has also decided to quit.

20 year old Charlie of course plays Darren Miller, a role he’s played since he was just 13.

There’s no word as yet as to what will be his exit storyline, but it’s understood that Kylie Babbington, who plays Darren’s girlfriend Jodie, and is also Vanessa Gold’s daughter, will remain on the show.

Speaking about his departure in a statement, Charlie said, “I’ve enjoyed my time at EastEnders immensely…

“It’s been a terrific chapter in my life and I’ve loved every minute of it.

“I’ve had tremendous support throughout my duration of the show and I would like to thank Bryan [Kirkwood – executive producer] and the whole team for believing in me.”
