Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) discovered that she is pregnant with Zack Hudson's (James Farrar) baby in tonight's EastEnders (6th December).


As her 30th birthday approached, Whitney's housemates Finlay (Ashley Byam) and Felix Baker (Matthew Morrison) were intent on planning a birthday party for her. But Whit was clearly out of sorts, which did not go unnoticed by friend Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams).

Later, Whitney left her stall in the hands of put-upon market pal Shrimpy (Ben Champniss, who showcased his piano skills on screen last week) and rushed to the pharmacy, where her dilemma soon became clear as she had her eye on the last pregnancy test on the shelf.

At that moment, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), mother of Whit's niece Lily (Lillia Turner), walked in and the two women realised they were both looking to purchase the very same thing. At the Slaters', Stacey and Whitney split the pack of two tests between them as they chatted about their possible pregnancies.

Stacey pointed out that at least Whit's baby daddy wouldn't be in prison - with Stacey still getting over the arrest of her now ex-beau Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol). Whitney talked about her last pregnancy, which had ended in miscarriage when she was married to Lee Carter (Danny Hatchard).

After doing their tests, Stacey asked Whitney if she thought she would be having a happy birthday. Whitney replied with a yes, and asked Stacey if she was alright. Stacey's response suggested that she wasn't pregnant, but it was a different story for Whit.

Back at home with Chelsea and the boys, they sprung the idea of the party on her and she thanked them. But alone with Chelsea, Whitney confided that she had had a fling with Zack, and now she was carrying his baby.

What will Whitney do next? And how will Zack react?
