Alfie's partner Kat later agreed that Wilfred could move into The Queen Vic when he and Nana were married. Alfie was later enraged that Wilfred had not booked a honeymoon, and marched him to the travel agent's to book one.

Wilfred later admired the war medals of Nana's late husband William, then surprised Nana with the news that he had booked a honeymoon in the West Indies. Alfie welcomed him into the family.

On his wedding day, Wilfred got nervous and tried to run away, only to be caught by Alfie at Walford East station. He confided in Alfie that he was ill, and didn't want Nana to become his nurse. Alfie agreed to let Wilfred leave, but when he went to hug Wilfred he felt a sharp pain, and opened Wilfred's jacket to reveal William's medals.

Wilfred was exposed as a con artist. Alfie didn't want to have to break the news to his Nana, so he dragged Wilfred back to the pub, where he confessed to stealing the medals. Nana revealed that she knew all along. Nana forgave Wilfred, but he fled Walford along with £30000 that he had conned out of Pat Evans.

Aleesha Beyoncé Miller was born on the show on 29 October 2004, and was played by twins Freyja and Phoebe Coltman-West.

Aleesha is the infant daughter of teenagers Demi Miller and Leo Taylor. Aleesha's godparents are her uncle Mickey and (until her death in December 2006) neighbour Pauline Fowler, whose heart softened towards the Millers since she accompanied Demi to hospital for Aleesha's birth. Aleesha was the centre of an ongoing feud between her maternal and paternal grandparents, with she and her parents bearing the brunt of the turmoil. Demi and Leo took her with them when they ran away together. They left her with her godmother Pauline when they had to move into a squat. This led to her father's death from a heroin overdose, when Demi took some heroin to numb her pain and Leo overdosed because he thought she was dead.

Aleesha left Walford with Rosie and Demi on 7 July 2006 to live in the Cotswolds.

Home Barnstaple

Frederick William "Freddie" Mitchell (né Slater) was played by twins Alex and Tom Kilby. Freddie was conceived in late 2003 when his mother, Mo Mitchell, was raped by her father's friend, Graham Foster. Her refusal to abort the child caused the break-up of her marriage to Billy Mitchell. Mo went to stay with her sister, Belinda, where she gave birth to Freddie. In November 2004, after Graham was sentenced to eight years imprisonment, Little Mo and Billy made another attempt at their marriage, but they separated again after Billy admitted that he struggled to accept Freddie. Freddie then lived at the Slater household with Little Mo, Big Mo, Charlie and Stacey.

In February and March 2006, Freddie caused his mother much stress by crying a lot. He took a trip to the park with his mother, Jane Collins and Bobby Beale, where Bobby poked him in the forehead with a stick. Freddie had to go to hospital but was thankfully okay. However, the incident resulted in a visit from a health visitor. Mo thought that the health visitor was accusing her of abusing Freddie and became angry and hostile. Mo strugged to cope with her young son as when he was teething he often cried.

In May 2006, Freddie went to hospital seriously ill with bleeding on the brain. A few days before the hospital admission, Mo had admitted to her boyfriend Oliver, who is also a GP, that she sometimes got very irritated with Freddie when he cried. When Oliver heard that Freddie's injury must have been caused by shaking or rough handling, he admitted what Mo had told him to a paediatrician, Briony Campbell, at the hospital. While the hospital believed that Mo may have shaken her son, Mo suspected that ten-year-old Ben Mitchell may have hurt him in some way as they were left unsupervised together just before the incident. Mo went to confront Ben and ended up shaking him in irritation when he tried to run away.

After extensive tests at the hospital, it was discovered that Freddie had a temporary low platelet count, due to an infection, meaning that any minor injury could hurt him badly, as his blood wasn't clotting properly. Mo was no longer suspected of hurting her son.

Freddie left Walford on May 26 2006 with his mother who wanted to start a new life in Barnstaple, Devon.
