Linda Carter makes worrying discovery about Alfie Moon in EastEnders | The Sun

LINDA Carter makes a worrying discovery about Alfie Moon in EastEnders.

The character – played by Kellie Bright – has become firm friends with Alfie (Shane Richie) in recent months.

Last month, Alfie found out he could be at risk of prostate cancer after being forced to go to hospital.

Sadly for the character, his diagnosis has been confirmed, however, he has chosen to keep it from his friends and family.

But in an upcoming episode, Linda figures out something is amiss and rushes to Alfie's side.

Alfie ends up telling Phil Mitchell that he's got prostate cancer, after the two men clash on the day of Phil's wedding to Kat Slater, Alfie's ex.
