Last night saw the revelation that EastEnders' Derek Branning was the mystery man who was having an affair with Kat Moon, and it appears that there were a fair few people who wanted to find it out...

Nine million people to be exact, according to the Metro after it was revealed that 8.4 million tuned into the show when it aired on BBC One last night and a further 786,000 who watched the events of last night unfold, on BBC Three later in the evening.

The result that Derek was Kat's secret lover came after Alfie made his way to the bedsit that Kat and her lover had been using to see who Kat was going to meet. After raised voices and the knowledge that it was a Branning brother, Alfie made his way to the pub to confront Max, Derek and Jack before Kat pointed to Derek and stating that it was him who she was having the affair with.

However, that won't be the end of the drama as tonight's episode will see Alfie punch Derek when he comes to the pub to confront him.

According to Heatworld, a BBC spokesperson said: "After finding out the truth about his wife’s affair, Alfie throws everyone out of The Vic.

"However, it is not long before Derek arrives to speak to him but rather than help the situation, Derek maliciously makes things worse. Losing his temper, Alfie hits Derek and tells him never to step foot in his pub again.”

Having found out about Derek, it didn't take long for fans to take to Twitter to air their views. One fan wrote: "

"She could of at least had an affair with Jack! At least he’s something to look at!", whilst another tweeted: "Derek Branning, are you kidding me?!"
