EastEnders viewers can't believe their eyes as Kat and Alfie's three sons make first appearance in three years and they look totally different
At first, viewers didn't recognise the young children when they were shown sitting on Ian Beale's sofa – taking to social media to share their shock when it was revealed that they are the Moon boys.
Tommy, 7, and four-year-old twins Bert and Ernie were last seen on screen when Kat (Jessie Wallace) and Alfie (Shane Richie) left Albert Square in 2015 – being notably absent in the characters' most recent return to Walford.
Their appearance in tonight's episode of the BBC One soap surprised viewers, who admitted that seeing how grown up the children are was making them feel "old".
Writing on Twitter, one shocked fan wrote: "Tommy, Bert & Ernie grown up makes me feel SO OLD".
Another added: "OMG, the casting of Kat's son Tommy is perfect, looks the spit of mini Alfie mixed with a bit of Kat!"
A third quipped: "Tommy is nearly eight years old, how has 2010 gone by that fast??"
The Moon family had been living together in Spain before Kat returned to her family earlier this year after being kicked out by Alfie.
It was later revealed that Alfie had seen red after Bert was injured while Kat was supposed to be looking after the children.
Kat was having sex with a Spanish man upstairs, leaving the children to play alone.
During this time, Tommy boiled the kettle and accidentally burned his toddler brother – causing injury.
However, Alfie has since had a change of heart over the incident and brought the children to the Slater household so that they could be reunited with their mother.
Although the twins were excited to run over and cuddle up to their mum, Tommy was seen to be less excited by the reunion – although he later relented and gave Kat a hug.
Despite the heartwarming scene, drama doesn't appear to be far off for Kat and Alfie – with tonight's episode ending as Alfie realised that he was holding his newborn daughter, who he shares with Kat's cousin Hayley.
Hayley gave birth to the little girl after a sordid affair with Alfie, which Kat is currently unaware of.
