EastEnders SPOILER: Alfie Moon sports a Mexican sombrero and poncho as the former Queen Vic landlord celebrates Margarita day

He recently made his long-awaited return to EastEnders

And Alfie Moon was determined to make his time at the Queen Vic a success as he was seen sporting a sombrero and poncho in scenes set to air in October. 

The former pub landlord played by Shane Ritchie pulled out all the stops for Margarita day – after fans of the soap speculated that Alfie would take on the iconic job following Mick Carter’s (Danny Dyer) departure.

Standing outside The Vic, Alfie could be seen in a bright red hat with a multi-coloured striped poncho with a pom pom trim. 

He is stood next to a large chalk board that reads, ‘International Margarita Day,’ to advertise the event. 

Upon hearing about a clash at a party at Peggy’s, Alfie pulls out all the stops but what will landlady Linda Carter make of his idea.

Earlier this month, EastEnders fans were given their first glimpse at Shane Richie‘s much-anticipated return to the soap.

First look snaps showed the moment Alfie Moon came face-to-face with his ex-wife Kat, ahead of her wedding to Albert Square hardman Phil Mitchell.

Shane’s return to EastEnders was first confirmed back in July as fans eagerly wondered whether he will reunite with his on/off love Kat, three years after his last appearance on the soap. 

In the images, Alfie is seen waiting at Kat’s front door as she heads to the church clad in her wedding dress.

The bombshell moment will no doubt leave Kat stunned, as she prepares to tie the knot with Phil (Steve McFadden).

And while Kat (Jessie Wallace) may seem adamant she wants to tie the knot with Phil, it appears Alfie is keen to win back her heart, as another snap shows him aboard a boat, perhaps tempting his longtime love back to their old life together. 

Shane also discussed his return during an interview with The Mirror, saying: ‘We sat down and he said, ”Listen, I’ve got this idea of bringing Alfie back,” and I said really?

‘Then he sold it to me said we want the old Alfie, because over the years there’s been all very different Alfies, and my favourite Alfie is from 2002 to 2005, look it up. That’s the Alfie we have got back.”

He went on: “So Chris [Clenshaw] was so instrumental, for telling me the long-term storyline with Alfie and it’s the old Alfie.’

While Alfie’s first scenes aired at the start of September, fans were given a tease of his return in July, when the former Queen Vic landlord was seen briefly on video call to his son Tommy (Sonny Kendall). 

Many viewers gushed it was ‘so good’ to see his face, as others bemoaned it had been ‘too long’.
