Eastenders star Shona McGarty says her character Whitney Dean is to “change” in the coming months.

As viewers will know, Whitney is in a relationship with Lee Carter and she will grow closer to his mother Linda in upcoming scenes.

Shona said: “She starts to feel a real part of the Carters. They make her feel safe. They all have each other’s backs and she wants that.

“She starts looking up to Linda Carter more. She sees this strong woman who’s been through so much.

“Whitney’s going to change, get more classy and more grown up. She needs to lose the hoop earrings!”

It looks like there could be a soap wedding in the future too as Shona also said: “I think she’s definitely found love with Lee. I’d love to get married in EastEnders”.
