It seems that Kat and Alfie will have to close the Vic down due to a flea infestation! In an upcoming storyline, they will struggle with finances after the pub has to be fumigated, according to UK tabloid The Sun.
“This is a huge blow for Kat and Alfie,” a source said. “They’ve been struggling to make ends meet and lose thousands while the pub is shut. They have no idea who brought the fleas in and are determined to get to the bottom of it.” Hmmmm Ian ‘tramp’ Beale maybe?
The pub’s usual patrons are then reluctant to return following the infestation, the source added. “They were scared of spreading the insect invasion to their own homes. Kat and Alfie’s relationship has been strained for months and this only adds to their problems.”
It’s making me feel itchy just thinking about it! Keep it The BizzNiz for all your Eastenders gossip.
