EastEnders fans were fuming tonight as Alfie Moon made a dramatic exit – but he didn’t go alone.
The wheeler dealer made a quick exit out of Albert Square to escape the feisty Slater women.
Alfie had promised to bring baby Cherry back home first thing, but Kat agreed to postpone until 5.30pm.
The former Queen Vic landlord then made a drastic U-turn after realising he would never be allowed to see his daughter again.
Alfie told Ian was planning to leave the country from Dover to Calais – then headed off with Cherry in his car.

However, EastEnders fans noticed a big problem when he put the baby in the backseat of the car.
Concerned viewers took to Twitter after spotting the blunder.
One viewer said: "Did anyone notice that in #eastenders Alfie did not secure the baby’s car seat in the car????"
Another added: "Alfie puts cot on back seat, walks around to driver’s seat & baby is miraculously seat belted in…not by Alfie"
A third said: "Alfie didn’t attach that car seat to anything. Like, he put it on the seat n just drove off!"
