Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) is set to be plunged into disaster in EastEnders after an altercation with stalker Leo King (Tom Wells) leaves him for dead. Tom has been giving Whitney a life of hell with his obsession and when he discovered the logbook that she was keeping on him, he saw red.

Whitney found herself cornered by a seriously dangerous Leo and lashed out in retaliation. Believing him to be dead, Whitney has blood on her hands and knows it looks bad – could she be set to head to prison for what has happened?

In a panic, she turns to Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) for help and, knowing what she has been through thanks to Leo, he reassures her and becomes desperate to protect her from any more harm or injustice.

Mick takes control and calms Whitney down, insisting that they both attend and are seen on the boat party so that she has an alibi. But when an already drunk Linda (Kellie Bright) sees them together, her paranoia that something is going on escalates and she instructs the bus to leave without them.

Mick and Whitney eventually arrive on the boat and as Whitney tries to keep her cool, she can’t stop thinking about the state she left Leo in and whether or not he is dead or alive.

Mick approaches her and gives her a pep talk but again, Linda witnesses and makes a spectacle of herself. With the drink flowing, Linda lets rip at them and soon a distracted Mick has a lot more to deal with as disaster strikes, plunging his family into very real danger.

Back in Walford, Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) arrives home to be confronted by the police but is this in connection with Leo? Has he survived and reported Whitney?

And as Sonia reaches a shocking conclusion, is Whitney’s nightmare set to get even worse?

One to watch Monday 17 February at 8pm on BBC One.
