In the pub, Billy drunkenly announces that Alfie and Little Mo are an item. Kat is furious and decides not to get together with Alfie, so as not to break her sister's heart. However, Alfie and Kat continue to grow closer, due to Kat's relationship with Alfie's grandmother, who is dying.
After Kat helps Alfie complete some of Nana's final wishes and overcome her death, they long for each other. Alfie announces that he is leaving to drive across the United States in a Ford Capri, and it seems he has gone for good when he waves goodbye to a heartbroken Kat on Christmas Day After getting drunk and drowning her sorrows in the pub, Kat is stunned to see Alfie waiting for her outside. Kat and Alfie then get into the car together and drive off.
Alfie and Kat have a heart to heart and it is revealed that Alfie spent six months in prison for property fraud and they tried to have a baby but he has fertility problems. Kat is not interested and tries to leave, telling him that she is pregnant and he is not the father. Alfie doubles the remainder of Kat's money in a bet and promises to stop scamming and get a proper job. Kat gives him 24 hours. Kat is angry and demands he get the money back as they need a regular income.
Instead, he sets up an illegal drinking den in the cellar and they move into Kim Fox's Tameka Empson caravan on the Square. He introduces Michael to Kat and Michael says that he is returning to Spain and asks her to go with him. He leaves a letter and some money for Alfie, revealing that he is the baby's father.

Alfie struggles to pay the rent and tries gambling again but loses. However, Phil's cousin, Roxy Mitchell, helps out by paying two months rent for him and he shows Kat the newly refurbished pub.
However, on the day of the grand opening, there is a problem so the pub doesn't open until the next day. Kat sees Alfie and Roxy together and fights with Roxy. Alfie takes Roxy's side and ejects Kat but they reconcile and Alfie suggests renewing their wedding vows and Kat agrees.
The day does not go quite according to plan as Alfie helps Roxy with her sister Ronnie Mitchell's Samantha Womack wedding. However, Kat decides that she does not need a big ceremony so she and Alfie have one in the Square with just him and Kat. Kat gives birth to a boy named Tommy but is rushed to hospital as she haemorrhages, due to a damaged placenta.
Charlie decides to join the New Year's party, rather than stay with Tommy so he is unattended when Ronnie Mitchell finds herself in The Queen Vic with her dead son and she swaps the babies. When Alfie gets home, he finds "Tommy" dead in his cot. Kat and Alfie struggle to cope with their loss but eventually start to deal with it until Michael returns, wanting to see his son. Kat tells Michael to leave but he stays because he has friends locally.
Kat kisses Michael but he rejects her, leading her to break down. Eventually Alfie moves out after they have a row and goes away for a weekend with Michael. He comforts her and they reconcile. Eventually, Ronnie admits to Kat that she swapped the babies and returns Tommy. Alfie and Kat are reunited with Tommy after talking to a social worker.
Ronnie goes to prison for her crime and Kat forgives her. Kat finds out she is pregnant and Alfie asks who the father is, refusing to believe Kat has not cheated.
Alfie realises he has gone too far but Kat is not interested in his apologies, even after she miscarries. She tells him she does not want any more children and that their relationship will just be for show from now on, leading her to have a one-night stand with Mark Garland, which she regrets after hearing Alfie's voicemail, saying how much he loves her.
Alfie takes Kat, Tommy and Shenice on holiday but when they return, Kat tells Alfie that she cheated. They discuss it and Alfie insists that he would rather Kat cheat on him than not have her in his life.
Kat isn't happy and is further upset when Alfie will not allow her to explain that she did not cheat again. They try to mend things over Christmas but Alfie hears Kat say that she does not think he loves her. Alfie pays a friend Gerry to claim he is a marriage counsellor and tell Kat that their marriage can be mended.

However, Derek is scammed by Alfie and Billy and he suspects Phil conned him. When Billy is arrested on suspicion of murdering Heather Trott, Derek worries that he may implicate them in the alcohol theft and asks Alfie to frame Phil by hiding goods at his garage. However, Alfie is caught and Phil confronts him, making it clear that Alfie takes orders from him, not Derek. When Derek learns that Alfie has told Phil everything, he furiously threatens Alfie.
In Kat's absence, Alfie and Roxy become close friends and Roxy tells Alfie that she is in love with him. This makes things awkward and she quits her job at the pub. After a while, Alfie manages to convince Roxy to return and offers her a place to stay. Jean is conned out of money that belongs to The Queen Victoria while Alfie is away and when he returns, he borrows money from Roxy to pay the bills, angering Kat.
Alfie starts a pub football team and pays more attention to that than to Kat, so she starts an affair. Kat tries to resist but eventually the affair turns to love. When Kat's lover sends her flowers, Alfie becomes suspicious and asks Kat if she is seeing someone else.
She denies it initially but eventually admits it, refusing to say who the other man is. Alfie demand Kat end the affair but Alfie struggles to trust Kat, especially when he finds a ring he thought had been pawned. Wanting to catch her out, Alfie says he will be away overnight and follows her to a nearby flat, demanding to know who Kat is seeing but she still refuses to name him.
Alfie finds a letter to "Mr. Branning" and confronts the three brothers, attacking Max when he sees that Kat is calling. Kat arrives and tells him that she is seeing Derek. Alfie throws Kat out again and Derek makes matters worse when he plays Alfie a message, asking to meet. Alfie punches Derek and tells him that he is barred before giving Derek his wedding ring to give to Kat. Alfie starts dating Roxy and asks her to move in and they declare their love for each other.
Alfie helps Kat when she is questioned over stolen goods, but to prove to Roxy that he loves her, Alfie decides to get a divorce. Alfie and Roxy decide to try for a baby, but when Kat and Alfie's decree nisi comes through, it is apparent that Alfie still loves Kat. He is determined to move on so proposes to Roxy and she accepts. Alfie discovers Ronnie is being released from prison but thinks that she will not return to Walford. He is angry to discover that she has and demands Roxy choose, him or Ronnie.
Roxy chooses Alfie but Kat persuades him to accept Ronnie's presence and let Roxy see her sister. Kat supports Alfie after Michael's death and the two become closer. The night before his wedding, Alfie visits Kat and they kiss passionately.
Roxy realises that Alfie is still in love with Kat and orders him out of the church. He learns that Kat is going to Ibiza and races to the airport.
They reconcile, moments before her flight is due to depart. Kat tells Alfie that she is pregnant and they move in with Kat's grandmother, Mo Harris. Kat has a market stall, selling women's clothes, but Alfie isn't as successful as goes to help Spencer in Australia for a while. He returns a month later and tells Kat that he has just bought a classic Ford Capri.
After a night in a posh hotel, they return to Walford and Alfie sets up a burger bar on the Square but this is taken away so he sets up a men's clothes stall instead. Kat and Alfie are thrilled when their twin sons, Bert and Ernie, are born. Alfie receives a letter from the council, stating that they are due to be evicted from No.
He doesn't tell Kat but Stacey finds it and forces him to tell Kat and Mo. Alfie tells Kat that he has got a bank loan but considers starting a fire for the insurance money. Despite Mick Carter advising him against it, he drops a lit cigarette into a paper-filled wastebasket.
When outside, he learns Kat is in the house and rushes back to rescue her but Mo's stash of dodgy hairspray causes an explosion, just as Alfie opens the front door.
He rescues Kat regardless, receiving minor burns, but Kat is badly burnt. Alfie and the Moons are supported by the local community and stay with the Masood family. Alfie is praised as a hero, despite being suspected by local firefighter Tosh. However, the fire investigation officer declares the fire an accident but Mick advises him not to tell Kat that he started the fire and when Kat thanks him for saving her life, he takes Mick's advice. He is relieved when the fire investigation officer Neil Wallace informs him that the insurers will probably pay for the damage to be repaired but Stacey finds the picture of Nana Moon and realises Alfie started the fire and demands Alfie tell Kat but he refuses, creating a rift between them.
The insurance company also refuse to pay for the damage as Mo's quantity of hairspray is listed as commercial goods, invalidating the policy. Stacey then suggests Alfie use the proceeds from selling the Capri to sort out their finances but he can't as the money was spent on food and the children. Masood Ahmed returns home and asks Alfie when they will be moving out as the house is too crowded but Alfie loses his temper with Masood and accuses him of kicking them out.
Needing a place of their own, Alfie tries to persuade an estate agent to let him stay in number 43 for a couple of nights but the agent dismisses the idea. So he goes to the council for temporary accommodation and is told that all they can offer is one night in a bed and breakfast.
He agrees and they marry at the registrar's office with two nurses as witnesses and return to Walford. They squat in a couple of places before Mick invites them to stay at The Queen Vic. After an emotional speech from Kat to the social housing manager, they are offered a council house in Hull but just as they are about to leave, Kat finds a photo of Nana.
Wanting to know how it survived the fire, Alfie admits that he started it and tries to apologise, but Kat leaves him, moving in with Stacey and Lily. Later, as Christmas approaches, Alfie tells Kat that he will try to fix things. Mo tells Kat that Harry left her some money in his will. Alfie finds out, and tries to convince her to use the money to make a fresh start after the divorce but she destroys the cheque, insisting it doesn't change the past nor their impending divorce.
Kat has second thoughts about the divorce after Pam Coker gives a speech about love and family and Stacey tells Alfie that their rent is increasing and Kat is struggling financially so Alfie invites Kat to his flat for lunch and they reminisce about their relationship. The next day, Kat lashes out at Alfie for leaving leftovers for the kids, but at Stacey's urging, she agrees to be his date to Ian and Jane's wedding if he makes more effort for making up for the fire.
Mo has Harry's money transferred to her account and tells Alfie. He insists that this is not good for Kat and tells her so she burns the money. Sadly, this makes her very depressed and she tries to commit suicide but Alfie finds her and calls an ambulance. At the hospital, he admits that he is still in love with her.
After personnel changes Dionne and Doris left the group after achieving solo success , the Gospelaires became the recording group the Sweet Inspirations , who had some chart success, but were much sought-after as studio background singers. I wish I remembered the gentleman's name because he was responsible for the beginning of my professional career.
The backstage encounter led to the group being asked to sing background sessions at recording studios in New York. Soon, the group were in demand in New York music circles for their background work for such artists as the Drifters, Ben E.
Her background vocal work would continue while Warwick pursued her studies at Hartt. On June 25, , The New York Times Magazine listed the Gospelaires among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the Universal fire. While she was performing background on the Drifters' recording of "Mexican Divorce," Warwick's voice and star presence were noticed by the song's composer, Burt Bacharach , a Brill Building songwriter who was writing songs with many other songwriters, including lyricist Hal David.
What emotion I could get away with! During the session, Bacharach asked Warwick if she would be interested in recording demonstration recordings of his compositions to pitch the tunes to record labels. Warwick was signed to Bacharach's and David's production company, according to Warwick, which in turn was signed to Scepter Records in by Greenberg.
Warwick's musical ability and education would also allow Bacharach to compose more challenging tunes. Warwick had found out that " Make It Easy on Yourself " — a song on which she had recorded the original demo and had wanted to be her first single release — had been given to another artist, Jerry Butler. Warrick's name was misspelled on the single's label, and she began using the new spelling i. According to the July 14, Time magazine article,  after "Don't Make Me Over" hit in , she answered the call of her manager "C'mon, baby, you gotta go" , left school and went on a tour of France , where critics crowned her "Paris' Black Pearl," having been introduced on stage at Paris Olympia that year by Marlene Dietrich.
Rhapsodized Jean Monteaux in Arts: "The play of this voice makes you think sometimes of an eel, of a storm, of a cradle, a knot of seaweed, a dagger. It is not a voice so much as an organ. You could write fugues for Warwick's voice. This was followed by " Walk On By " in April , another major international hit and million seller that solidified her career.
For the rest of the s, Warwick was a fixture on the U. Warwick weathered the British Invasion better than most American artists. This upset Warwick, who described feeling insulted when told that in the UK, record company executives wanted her songs recorded by someone else. Warwick even met Cilla Black while on tour in Britain.
She recalled what she said to her: "I told her that " You're My World " would be my next single in the States. I honestly believe that if I'd sneezed on my next record, then Cilla would have sneezed on hers too. There was no imagination in her recording. Warwick was named the Bestselling Female Vocalist in the Cash Box Magazine poll in , with six chart hits in that year. Cash Box named her the Top Female Vocalist in , and Swinging World.
Scholarly articles probe the relationship between the Beatles and the nouvelle vague films of Jean-Luc Godard, discuss "the brio and elegance" of Dionne Warwick's singing style as a 'pleasurable but complex' event to be 'experienced without condescension. For inspirational purposes, such hip artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers and Andy Warhol occasionally paint while listening to rock 'n' roll music.
Explains Warhol: "It makes me mindless, and I paint better. In , Eon Productions intended to use Warwick's song titled "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" as the theme song of Thunderball until Albert Broccoli insisted that the theme song include the film's title. A new song was composed and recorded in the eleventh hour titled "Thunderball", performed by Tom Jones. The melody of "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" remains a major component of the film score.
The Ultimate Edition DVD of Thunderball has the Warwick song playing over the titles on one of the commentary track extras, and the song was released on the 30th anniversary CD of Bond songs. The mids to early s were an even more successful time period for Warwick, who saw a string of gold-selling albums and Top 20 and Top 10 hit singles. Disc jockeys flipped the single and made it a double-sided hit. Bacharach had been contracted to produce "Alfie" for the Michael Caine film of the same name and wanted Warwick to sing the tune, but the British producers wanted a British subject to cut the tune.
Cilla Black was selected to record the song, and her version peaked at 95 upon its release in the US. A cover version by Cher used in the American prints of the film peaked at The song was to be recorded by Judy Garland , who was subsequently fired from the film.
Warwick performed the song, and when the film became a success in the early weeks of , disc jockeys flipped the single and made the single one of the biggest double-sided hits of the rock era and another million seller.
At the time, RIAA rules allowed only one side of a double-sided hit single to be certified as gold, but Scepter awarded Warwick an "in-house award" to recognize " Theme from Valley of the Dolls" as a million selling tune. By the end of , Warwick had sold an estimated 35 million singles and albums internationally in less than nine years and more than 16 million singles in the U. Exact figures of her sales are unknown and probably underestimated, due to Scepter Records' apparently lax accounting policies and the company policy of not submitting recordings for RIAA audit.
Warwick's last LP for Scepter was the aforementioned soundtrack for the motion picture The Love Machine in which she appeared in an uncredited cameo , released in July In , Bacharach and David sued Scepter Records for an accurate accounting of royalties due the team from their recordings with Warwick and labelmate B.
The label, with the defection of Warwick to Warner Bros. Records, filed for bankruptcy in and was sold to Springboard International Records in The album peaked at 57 on the Billboard Hot Album Chart. However, the film was panned by the critics, and in the fallout, the songwriting duo decided to terminate their working relationship. The break-up left Warwick devoid of their services as her producers and songwriters.
She was contractually obligated to fulfill her contract with Warners without Bacharach and David, and she would team with a variety of producers during her tenure with the label. Faced with the prospect of being sued by Warner Bros. Also in , Warwick had her name changed to "Warwicke" per the advice of Linda Goodman , an astrologer friend, who believed it would bring greater success.
A few years later, she reverted to the old spelling after a string of disappointments and an absence from the Billboard top There were no big hits during the early and mid part of the decade, aside from 's " Then Came You ", recorded as a duet with the Spinners and produced by Thom Bell. Bell later noted, "Dionne made a strange face when we finished [the song]. She didn't like it much, but I knew we had something. So we ripped a dollar in two, signed each half and exchanged them.
I told her, 'If it doesn't go number one, I'll send you my half. There was an apology on it. Other than this success, Warwick's five years on Warner Bros. Records produced no other major hits, but "Then Came You" was issued by co-owned Atlantic Records , the Spinners' label.
Her five-year contract with Warners expired in , and with that, she ended her stay at the label. The song was produced by Barry Manilow. The accompanying album, Dionne , was certified Platinum in the United States for sales exceeding one million units. Warwick had been personally signed and guided by the label's founder Clive Davis , who told her, "You may be ready to give the business up, but the business is not ready to give you up.
She became the first female artist in the history of the awards to win in both categories the same year. This was adapted into the weekly one-hour show Solid Gold , which she hosted throughout and and again in — Major highlights of each show were the duets she performed with her co-hosts, which often included some of Warwick's hits and her co-hosts' hits, intermingled and arranged by Solid Gold musical director Michael Miller. Another highlight in each show was Warwick's vocal rendition of the Solid Gold theme, composed by Miller with lyrics by Dean Pitchford.
After a brief appearance in the Top Forty in early with Johnny Mathis on "Friends in Love" — from the album of the same name — Warwick's next hit later that same year was her full-length collaboration with Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees for the album Heartbreaker. The song became one of Warwick's biggest international hits, returning her to the Top 10 of Billboard's Hot as well as 1 Adult Contemporary and No.
The title track was taken from the album of the same name which sold over 3 million copies internationally and earned Warwick an RIAA USA Gold record award for the album. In Britain, the disc was certified Platinum. Warwick later stated to Wesley Hyatt in his Billboard Book of Number One Adult Contemporary Hits that she was not initially fond of " Heartbreaker " but recorded the tune because she trusted the Bee Gees' judgment that it would be a hit.
The project came about when Clive Davis was attending his aunt's wedding in Orlando, Florida in early and spoke with Barry Gibb. Gibb mentioned that he had always been a fan of Warwick's, and Davis arranged for Warwick and the Bee Gees to discuss a project.
Warwick and the Gibb brothers obviously hit it off as both the album and the title single were released in October to massive success. The album peaked at 57 on the Billboard album chart. The song spent four consecutive weeks at 1 on the Billboard Hot chart. It was the year's biggest hit — certified four times Platinum in the United States alone.
The single, credited to "Dionne and Friends", was released in October and eventually raised over three million dollars for that cause. You have to be granite not to want to help people with AIDS, because the devastation that it causes is so painful to see. I was so hurt to see my friend die with such agony," Warwick told the Washington Post in It also was ranked by Billboard magazine as the most popular song of With this single Warwick also released her most successful album of the s, titled Friends , which reached 12 on Billboard's album chart.

The number psychic service was active from to According to press statements throughout the s, the program was the most successful infomercial for several years and Warwick earned in excess of three million dollars per year as spokesperson for the network.
Warwick's longtime friend and tour manager Henry Carr acknowledged in a Biography Channel interview that "when Dionne was going through an airport and a child recognized her as 'that psychic lady on TV,' Dionne was crushed and said she had worked too hard as an entertainer to become known as 'the psychic lady. Featured on the album was "Sunny Weather Lover", which was the first song that Burt Bacharach and Hal David had written together for Warwick since It was Warwick's lead single in the United States, and was heavily promoted by Arista , but failed to chart.
ABC alleged that Warwick flew first class and was accommodated at first-class hotels for charity concerts and events in which she participated for the Foundation. Warwick, who had no executive, administrative, or management role in the organization, challenged ABC to investigate the foundation further and alleged that the ABC report was racially motivated. An Internal Revenue Service investigation of the Warwick Foundation found no wrongdoing or criminal activity on the part of the Board of Directors or Warwick, and its status as a non-profit charity was upheld.
ABC maintained the report to be factually correct, but the item has not been repeated since the original air date. The foundation was later dissolved.

The relationship with Concord concluded with the release of My Friends and Me. She had been in failing health for several months. The finished recording, entitled Only Trust Your Heart , was released in The lyrics were written by Dean Pitchford , prolific writer of Fame , screenwriter of — and sole or joint lyricist of every song in the soundtrack of — the original film Footloose , and lyricist of the Solid Gold theme.
When Bill and Dean brought this song to me, I instantly felt connected to its message of shining a little light into the lives of people who need it most", said Warwick.
Her charity was the Hunger Project. She was dismissed from her "apprenticeship" to Donald Trump during the fourth task of the season. In , the duets album Feels So Good was released.
