The BBC has released some behind-the-scenes images from what promises to be one of the talking points from this summer’s episodes of EastEnders.
After falling into bed with Joey Branning (David Witts) and having a huge falling out with step-mum Bianca (Patsy Palmer), a troubled Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) finds herself determined to have a good time. Yet when Kat (Jessie Wallace) spots her about to climb into a car full of lads, she attempts to stop her – but will she succeed?
Vulnerable Whitney was, of course, at the centre of a shocking 2011 storyline, written in collaboration with Comic Relief, that found her coerced into prostitution. More recently, she has found stability with fiancé Tyler Moon, although it was recently announced that actor Tony Discipline (who has played Tyler since 2011) will be leaving the soap later this year.
The scenes featuring McGarty and Wallace were filmed on location this week and are due to air in August.
