Kat's secret lover storyline has got you all talking, and everyone has a different opinion on who the lover could be... so let's take a look at the main suspects!

Max

@shee_d: Definitely Max! it's in his blood to cheat!

Laura McDermott (via Facebook) I originally thought Derek but now I don't know. Only the other day Tanya mentioned the upcoming wedding to Max and he didn't say much. Gotta be Max!

Jack

Tracey Cullington (via Facebook) Jack definitely. This Sharon thing is a smokescreen!

Karla Rose Smart (via Facebook) I say it's Jack, have done all the way through... poor Alfie - he doesn't deserve to be treated like that AGAIN!

@HelenMcCarron92: anyone else have a horrible feeling it's Derek that Kat is having the affair with?

Alex Hardy (via Facebook) Derek, I'd bet my drunken cat on that

HOWEVER, a lot of you guys aren't convinced that the Branning brothers are to blame... Here are some of your other thoughts:

@Punka1977: £20 says that Kat's lover is none of those blokes, but is in fact a chick. I bet you. My money is on Tanya or Kim.

@JenniHayre: Kat's undercover lover is no other than Tamwar! *Cue dramatic music*

John Walsh (via Facebook) Nico the manager of McKlunky's, outside bet!

Adam Rose (via Facebook) Another dark horse... Billy Mitchell... he's got himself a decent job now and he could have rented the flat off Michael.

Holly Elizabeth Mattock (via Facebook) I actually had a dream last night that it was revealed to be Ben and I remember it making my skin crawl...

@XNVP I'm convinced that Kat is having an affair with Fatboy, and if I'm right i will actually die laughing!

EVERYONE has an opinion on this one... the reveal is sure to be explosive!

    I have just watched the playback of the fight and kat bandaging her lovers hand up, and the hand looked slightly dark in colour, but that could have been the light. The hand was fat and chunky with short stumpy fingers, and no watch on. Max, jack and ray have slim hands, so that counts them out, the only other 4 biggish men are Derek, fatboy, masood and phill who were all wearing watches. But it's not who I thought first, which was someone from her past who was coming back in the show and was sneaking around without anyone knowing that he was back in the square. Because when kat was bandaging his hand Alfie walked in and didn't look suspicious that they was upstairs in the pub, which also made me think it was phill or fanboy. Because anyone else would have looked suspicious being up there. And also the hand she was bandaging had no rings, bracelets or watches on and that counts out all the 5 usual suspects.

    It's so blatantly Derek. It's been obvious from the start, they have just littered it with as many red herrings as possible. It aint gonna be Max, his secret is whatever he got up to in Manchester and thats what will wreck the wedding in December no doubt. Plus he was busy away posting money when Kat was meeting her lover in one episode. He's the biggest red herring of all. Jack would just be a complete bore if it was him. And Kat has been around both of them for a while in the show now - what two years? It doesn't really make sense she would just all of a sudden just fall for either of them without there being some sort of hint before. Derek...we haven't seen him with a woman yet (bar Rainie), he has motive for Alfie stitching him over the booze, he's got the money for the flat, and just generally the reveal with him would be much, much more interesting. Half the reason she refused to tell Alfie his name was because any confrontation with Derek probably wouldn't end well for Alfie! There has also been some very subtle clues/dialogue in certain episodes. I really hope they don't drag the identity out until Christmas now, at least have the viewer finding out in the next month or so and then Alfie at Xmas, otherwise it really will be testing the viewers patience.

    It can't be any of the 5 suspects, because when her mystery fellow come to the back of the pub one night when the affair first started, she said no to him and told him to go, but quickly changed her mind and called him back, but she did mention something like, I don't want to get hurt by you again, so it has to be someone she has been with before, and out of the 5 she has only been with Michael, and we know its not him. So it has to be someone who she has been with before like, the delivery driver, gary(Lynn's ex), her uncle Harry (which I doubt), Anthony trueman. She has never been with ray, max, Derek or jack before so it can't possibly be them, unless eastenders have made a cock up with their story lines and forget this scene happened(the back door scene about not getting hurt again by him).

    Well we know now it's definitely not Michael.
    I still think it's Max and my reason is that whenever the football team or any/all the suspects got together in the Vic, they all would look at Kat and smile or wink at her except for Max. Max would either be paying attention to his drink, phone or his cigarette and NOT paying any attention to Kat at all.. Plus as we have seen in the past Max is the kind of guy who would set up another flat to house his affairs. But Max leaving a message on Kat's phone saying I Love You is definitely not something Max would do. He's just a hit it and quit it kind of guy. There's also the possibility that it's nobody on the show currently and some new guy will pop up and be Kat's lover.

    It is Fatboy. For definite, unless there is a last-minute change of plot. The bed bugs, the mobile phone, he was in the bar fight and Kat was purposely snubbing him in front of Alfie - those are the clues which will be focused on in the reveal episode.

    There is NO way it's Jack. The only feelings he has for Kat are brotherly, we've seen it many times. He doesn't fancy her and the arm that we saw after the fight had a suit jacket on it.

    Why do people think that Kat wouldn't look at Derek because of his looks? He is no less attractive a man than Kat is a woman. She looks like a man in drag half the time, quite ghastly!

    I odnt think it was Max... he's probably posting moeny for Stacey, and she will pop up some time in the future. I hate this storyline though..Alfie resisted Blondies advances and now I wish he hadnt.
    I hope they dont drag this out for ages. Emmerdale and Corrie are definitely better these days!
