EastEnders fans baffled as soap 'forgets' about Alfie Moon's brain tumour | The Sun

EASTENDERS fans have been left baffled after the soap 'forgot' about Alfie Moon's brain tumour.

Beloved character Alfie, who is played by Shane Richie, was given devastating news during Wednesday's show.

He was told by doctors that he has prostate cancer, with the news shocking him to his core.

With Alfie so far keeping his diagnosis a secret, fans have pointed out how the dad-of-three has already battled the disease.

In 2017 Alfie and his now ex-wife Kat Slater appeared in EastEnders' spin-off series Redwater.

It followed the estranged couple as Kat attempted to find her long lost son.

A second wrote: "So I guess Alfie's brain tumour will never be mentioned again. Recovery by retcon?"

"Don't worry Alfie about having cancer the writers can make it disappear like they made your brain tumour miraculously vanish," said a third.

While a fourth commented: "So Alfie is going to have another cancer storyline? are we all just going to forget he's already had a brain tumour that was supposed to be fatal, and was never spoken about again?"

Fans were left devastated for Alfie after he learned of his diagnosis, with many taking to Twitter to comment on the heartbreaking storyline.
