On leaving hospital, she and Alfie remarry with two nurses as the only witnesses, before returning to the square and moving into a flat Alfie has organised for them to squat in.

Kat begins to have second thoughts about the divorce after Pam Coker Lin Blakley gives a speech about love and family. Stacey reveals to Alfie that their rent is increasing and Kat is struggling with money. Alfie then invites Kat to his flat for lunch and they reminisce about their relationship.

Everyone's warned me to expect a lot of stick in the street — Kat's such a full-on character.
But I'm prepared for the fact that my life's going to change completely. I can't wait, but at the same time I'm scared.
