Whitney to wed Woody Eastenders
Whitney returns and announces she’s getting married… to barman Woody! and We predict an explosive summer Wedding!
story so far
Whitney Carter was a heartbroken woman, distraught over her failed marriage to Lee Carter and confused over her growing feelings for Lee’s troubled dad, Mick, who she’d yet again passionately kissed. Shirley Carter then put the final nail in the Whitney departure coffin. The sharp-tongued venom spitter told her that she wasn’t wanted, and wounded Whitney left, after enjoying a quick bonk with temporary Vic bar manager Woody Woodward. Lonely Mick, meanwhile, struggled to understand why briefly returned wife Linda didn’t want any form of intimacy with him. Viewers, however, learnt that she was harbouring a secret she couldn’t and didn’t tell Mick.
The Carters are struggling to get their heads round the latest set of changes made by Vic freehold boss Fi Brown. But there’s soon a welcome distraction. ‘Whitney makes a surprise return,’ reveals our source at Eastenders. ‘Johnny’s delighted to see his sister-in-law and he immediately invites her to move back into the pub. ‘An emotionally torn Mick initially reels at the shock return, but he supports the idea of Whitney moving back in and he offers his daughter-in-law her job back.’ The good times are short-lived, however, when an angry Shirley confronts Whitney and makes it clear to her that she’s still not wanted, despite Johnny and Mick not feeling the same way. Our insider continues: ‘But Whitney’s come back a tougher woman and she stands her ground, leaving a disgruntled Shirley to face the fact she’s back to stay!’ Not only is Whitney back to stay, but she has some shock news to announce: she’s engaged to Woody!’ Mick’s rocked to hear Whitney’s news. He’s no fan of wily wideboy Woody and they’ve previously had a vicious tear-up in the pub. ‘The next day, Whitney is overjoyed when her fiancé turns up in Walford,’ reveals our source. ‘And Whitney’s even more excited because she and Woody decide to throw an engagement party at The Vic.’
Our insider reveals that Whitney has a heart-to-heart chat with Mick before the party gets going. But with Mick still struggling to come to terms with the engagement, will he again come to blows with Woody? Or will he tell Whitney that it’s her he wants because he fears his marriage to Linda is over? Or will he realise Whitney’s happy with Woody and give them his blessing? If the latter happens, we reckon the Square will see a summer wedding between Whitney and Woody. And, as we argue below, we reckon the groundwork for that wedding to be an explosive affair will be laid in the much-anticipated three-hander between Mick, Whitney and Linda that we guess is coming very soon…
