The actress confirms that this could be the case and that she will be leaving Walford. She states, ‘She feels devastated, she’s embarrassed, she knows that everyone is talking about her. It’s just another thing that people are judging her on. She feels like she’s completely on her own. Even though she has all her family. She just feels completely isolated.”
The actress gives some insight into the guilt that Whitney feels, “She feels like nobody wants her around. The whole of the market is talking about her.

She just feels like she did do a bad thing, it was all her fault, she shouldn’t have come to the hospital that time to Leo, she shouldn’t have tried to help the situation, it’s all her fault, and she’d be better off just running away from it all. Like her brother did.”
However, running may not make Whitney any happier, and she would miss her family and friends if she were to leave as the actress stated, “If she left, she would miss everyone terribly. It would be awful, she thinks it’s the only way out, but she’d miss everyone so much. It would be the hardest thing she’s ever done.”
It seems that in upcoming episodes, that she will have a decision to make, either leave Walford or stay and fight for herself. What do you think? Will Whitney fight for herself, or will she decide to flee? Watch EastEnders from Monday and Friday at 8 pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30 pm on BBC One to find out what happens next.
