Whitney is to make a surprise return in next week’s episodes of EastEnders – and will immediately shock Mick by revealing that she’s engaged to Woody!
As fans know, Whitney was recently hounded out of town by Shirley, who’d realised that she and Mick had been getting close in Linda’s absence.
Feeling conflicted about her feelings for Mick, Whitney had also fallen into the arms of bar manager Woody. But the pair’s passion was discovered by Mick, who just happened to find them in his and Linda’s marital bed.
Now, past grievances and buried emotions look set to return to the surface when Whit makes her comeback to Albert Square and is invited by Johnny to move back into the Vic. And if that wasn’t bad enough news for Shirley, just wait until she finds out that Mick has given Whitney her old job back!
Mick, though, is in for a surprise of his own when Whitney drops the bombshell news that she’s going to get married – and that Woody is the groom to be.
By the end of next week, the man himself will have turned up (Blue star Lee Ryan having signed up for more episodes), but how will Mick react when Whitney and Woody have their engagement party at the pub?
Viewers can expect a heart to heart as Whitney discusses how she feels with Mick. Do the pair still have feelings for each other that they’re trying to keep under wraps?
