She said: “I’ve taken a step back from acting. I’ve got a job and I’m looking after my kids.”

Katie was at the centre of Eastenders’ explosive festive story when it was revealed her gobby character Hayley was secretly sleeping with her cousin Kat’s husband Alfie Moon.

Viewers were shocked to learn he was the father of her baby girl.

Katie was last seen in Albert Square in February when her storyline with Kat and Alfie, played by soap heavyweights Jessie Wallace, 48, and Shane Richie, 55, ended.

A soap source said: “A lot of people have been wondering where Hayley is after she left so suddenly but the mystery has been solved, she’s in Romford working at B&M.

Katie got her first acting break after she was spotted arguing with her boyfriend on a train platform.
