EastEnders fans know that Whitney has been charged with murdering Leo after handing herself in for stabbing him in self-defence.
The long-suffering stallholder is due to appear in court and has been having an awful time in prison after being refused bail.
Her solicitors firm then dropped her case, leaving Whitney devastated.
Poor Whitney went on a hunger strike to try and get her voice heard, but after hallucinating in her cell she collapsed and was put on a drip in hospital.
Next week’s episodes of EastEnders will see Gray reassure Whitney ahead of her court appearance that everything is going to work out.
But little do they know that Leo’s mum is back in Walford and is spying on Whitney.
