EastEnders death confirmed as Whitney kills stalker Leo in bloody final showdown


EastEnders aired dramatic scenes on Friday, as a terrified Whitney Dean came face-to-face with her stalker Leo King for one final time.

The pair became embroiled in a horrifying deadly showdown, as he planned to exact his revenge.

After weeks of turmoil, Leo entered her room when she was home alone with a knife and prepared to hurt her.

Leo had arrived in Walford last summer, with it soon confirmed he was the secret son of Whitney’s former stepfather and abuser Tony King.

He’s always been convinced that Whitney lied about his dad being a paedophile, and that she was the reason he took his own life in prison.

She had no idea he’d been hiding in her attic for the past week, waiting to attack her – claiming it was justice for his dad.

But as Whitney got ready for the looming boat party, she was confronted in her bedroom by Leo.

He began telling her how he was going to kill her to get justice for Tony, raising the knife above his head.
