Whitney is to drop bombshell news on beleaguered husband Lee over Christmas on EastEnders. Although soap bosses are currently remaining tight-lipped about what it is that Whitney has to say, Lee looks set to be pushed to breaking point as a result.
Scenes to be shown on Tuesday 27 December will see Lee left stunned after Whitney reveals her news. And despite efforts to turn his mind elsewhere, Lee is soon getting another knock back, all of which threatens to tip him over the edge.
Speaking recently to Radio Times about his character’s current mental health problems, actor Danny-Boy Hatchard said: “Lee’s depression is going to escalate and it’s a hard-hitting thing for people to watch.
“I’ve had people writing to me saying that the storyline has been unbearable because it’s like watching themselves. But it means we’re doing our jobs properly.”
