EastEnders star warns Whitney may not have a happy ending

Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) has been through hell over the past couple of months in EastEnders, but her troubles are set to continue in the coming episodes, as Leo King’s (Tom Wells) mum Michaela Turnbull (Fiona Allen) returns to Walford, and her presence inevitably causes havoc for the young woman.

Whitney has been preparing with Gray (Toby-Alexander Smith) for her impending trial, but matters are complicated further in the coming episodes, as Michaela arrives back on the Square in an effort to track down Whitney.

Upon doing so, she speaks to the young woman, and her true colours come to light, as she blame her for everything that’s transpired — leaving Gray to defuse the heated situation.

Speaking about the confrontation, actress Shona said: ‘When Whitney first saw Michaela she felt really sorry for her but she also can’t help but feel guilty after what happened.’

‘She’s not scared of Michaela but she’s scared of what Michaela thinks of Whitney.’

Afterwards, Gray and Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) attempt to calm Whitney down, but — later — Michaela arrives at the Vic, resulting in Gray ushering her out with a warning.

Later, Whitney reveals to Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) that she believes prison is now a certainty for her.

Given everything that Whitney’s been through, it’s no wonder that she’s struggling to regain positive.

Speaking about the character’s state of mind, Shona said: ‘She still can’t sleep, she can’t get it out of her head, you never would – would you? And she’s just every day thinking about the trial.’


‘Whitney is completely convinced that even though she knows it was self-defence, she believes that it ended up really badly so she deserves to go to prison. She thinks she’s never going to get any happiness.’

One to watch: Monday 13 April at 8pm on BBC One.
