Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) has been enjoying a whirlwind romance in EastEnders with Leo King (Tom Wells) — but little does she know that he’s the son of paedophile Tony (Chris Coghill) who abused her a decade ago. However, the truth could be set to out in the coming episodes, as Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith) becomes inquisitive about her stepsister’s new beau?
Whitney’s had something of a hellish year, after her engagement to Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) ended in disaster when she discovered that he’d slept with Ben (Max Bowden).
After learning this information, she refused to go ahead with the ceremony, and headed off on her honeymoon by herself, so that she could regroup and start anew.
However, upon her return, she made it clear that she has a new boyfriend in the form of Leo. However, she has no idea that the young lad is secretly Tony’s son, and that he’s simply targeting her so that he can get more info about his dad — who he refuses to believe is a paedophile in spite of the evidence to prove otherwise.
In the coming episodes, Leo asks Whitney out for a drink, but when Callum enters the cafe, she reconsiders and makes a hasty exit — something which no doubt puts a spanner in Leo’s plan. However, later in the week, she agrees to meet him in the Queen Vic for a drink.
Tiffany is eager to meet this mystery man, and Whitney allows her to do so — but Tiff is confused as she realises that she already knows him.
With Tiffany wondering what his motives are, Leo fears that his plans have been scuppered.
Is the truth about Leo’s true identity set to out?
