BBC Eastenders spoilers and updates reveal Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) is preparing to go on trial. She opened up to Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) about past abuse, then kissed him. Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) confronted Whitney, and it seems like trouble always finds her. The actress made a statement that has some wondering if she is leaving the BBC soap.
EastEnders Spoilers – Torment, Torture, And Terror
Trouble seems to follow Whitney and we have watched as she has dealt with on horrific situation after another. At the peak of her stalker terrorizing her, Whitney eventually killed Leo King (Tom Wells). After covering it up, there were too many snags, even with Mick Carter’s (Danny Dyer) help, so Whitney confessed. Once she was taken to jail, she ended up having a mental breakdown. She hallucinated and went on a hunger strike.
However, Leo’s death wouldn’t be the end of the torment. Fans recall when Leo’s mother showed up, got Whitney to open up, then began her revenge scheme. It just seems like no matter what, Whitney is always facing a terrible situation.
Gray Atkins Reacts To Abuse History
Eastenders spoilers reveal that Gray is working on Whitney’s case, even though he had reservations in the beginning. He got the young woman to open up about their past relationships. When she admitted to being an abuse survivor, Gray didn’t even flinch.
We know it’s because Gray victimizes his own wife, Chantelle. However, you would think Gray would at least act surprised, horrified, or show some sign of empathy.
