But now the actor has told fans he’s now pursuing fame in music and shared a clip of him performing a freestyle on social media.

Alfie captioned the clip: “This is just the beginning.

“This one’s for you pops, I told you I’ll make it one way or another and I’m gonna do just that✨👼.”

His former co-star Danny, 45 – who previously played Mick Carter in the soap – was one of those who commented on the post, simply writing: “🔥🔥.”

Replying, Alfie wrote: “big love Dan💙.”

Alfie has also continued to pick up acting roles since leaving Albert Square in December 2021, when Liam and Tiffany went off for a fresh start in Germany.

He’s since appeared in an episode of Britbox drama The Chelsea Detective alongside Gavin And Stacey star Adrian Riseborough.

This year, he’ll be starring alongside Hanna star Esme Creed-Miles in film Silver Haze, which follows a young girl out for revenge for a terrible fire that happened when she was a child.

But when he’s not shooting scenes or making music, Alfie often heads back to work on building sites as a member of a construction crew.
