EastEnders fans who are hoping to avoid spoilers for Kat and Alfie's Redwater spinoff could be in for a tough time – with Ireland getting a four-day head-start on watching the series.

Kat and Alfie: Redwater is finally hitting our screens later this month and we're bracing ourselves for the answers to some huge questions, including the identity of Kat's long-lost son.

With EastEnders' former executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins in charge of the show, there are bound to be some huge twists and turns in the mix – but some viewers are already worried about sneaky spoilers getting out before they get a chance to watch.

Irish broadcaster RTE One will have the premiere of Redwater in a Sunday night slot from May 14 at 9.30pm and they're currently running an exciting trailer to promote it.

As officially confirmed in final schedules yesterday, BBC One won't show Redwater until Thursday, May 18 at 8pm. That's a lot of time to get spoiled if you happen to follow the wrong person on social media...

Kat and Alfie: Redwater follows the Moons as they arrive in a picturesque Irish harbour village on the hunt for answers over Kat's son.

Their quest for the truth won't go down well with too many of the locals, who fear that Kat and Alfie's meddling will stir up secrets that are best kept buried.

Alfie's brain tumour is another story strand picked up from EastEnders, as a distracted Kat doesn't notice that her husband is hiding his failing health from her.

Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie will be joined by an impressive ensemble cast in the show, including Lost actress Fionnula Flanagan, Orphan Black's Maria Doyle Kennedy and Game of Thrones actor Ian McElhinney.
