EastEnders fans spot Noel Gallagher’s ‘shock appearance as Alfie’s stunt double’

EastEnders fans have become convinced that Noel Gallagher appeared in the soap’s Christmas Day episode.

There were huge gasps in homes across the country when Alfie Moon was sent crashing down the stairs after a row with the Slater women.

The fan favourite was left unconscious on the floor after tumbling down then smashing his head on a log in a dramatic cliffhanger.

But some viewers were more concerned with the identity of Shane Richie’s stunt double was during the explosive scene.

Eagle-eyed viewers, and those with a pause button, spotted an uncanny likeness to Oasis star Noel.
