BBC EastEnders ‘figure out’ horror Whitney death twist ahead of soap exit

EastEnders star Shona McGarty is gearing up to leave the soap after 15 years playing Whitney Dean - but now fans reckon a tragic death could be in store for the character

EastEnders fans reckon they have rumbled how Whitney Dean is going to leave the soap – and it’s not looking good.

The character, played by Shona McGarty, has been a staple in the Square for 15 years. However, last year, Shona confirmed that she was leaving the soap in 2024.

Over in the soap recently, Whitney was over the moon when she along with boyfriend Zack Hudson (James Farrar) became foster parents. However, things didn’t go to plan when Ashton failed to adjust to his new life due to past trauma which led Ashton to be moved to an entirely different family, leaving Whitney heartbroken.

Then during Monday’s episode (January 1) Whitney found out that she is pregnant with Zack’s baby. But with her exit just around the corner, fans now reckon the character will be killed off in a heartbreaking twist.

Shona is leaving the soap this year

On X, formerly known as Twitter, one person said: “They’ll drag it out and Whitney will die giving birth. She ain’t allowed a happy ending.”

A second chimed in on the social media site: “I have have a nasty feeling Whitney’s gonna die.” A third quipped: “They’re going to kill her off aren’t they.”

Shona has been part of the BBC soap for 15 years, playing out many dramatic storylines including sexual abuse, murder and the death of her daughter Peach. She described leaving the show as not ‘an easy decision’. She told Inside Soap: “It wasn’t an easy decision because I’ve made so many friends.

“I’ve seen people come and go.” She added: “I’ve had so much fun and done so many storylines, some of which have been sensitive, and l’ve been honoured to be trusted with such heavy stuff year after year.” Shona went on: “So I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, but it was the right decision for me as I want to do other things.”
