'EastEnders' Whitney Dean will have to choose between Tyler Moon and Fatboy Chubb when both begin showing an interest in her
'EastEnders' Whitney Dean will be involved in a love triangle in an upcoming storyline.
The troubled character - played by Shona McGarty - will have to choose between Tyler Moon and Fatboy Chubb when both decide to start pursuing her following her sex exploitation drama, where she was forced into prostitution.
A source said: "Whitney's had an awful year and a new romance is just what she needs to help her move on.
"She'll need to choose wisely in deciding who will be the best boyfriend."
Whitney has already been getting close to Fatboy - played by Ricky Norwood - after he comforted her when her brother Ryan confronted pimp Rob Grayson on Southend Pier.
However, choosing might be troublesome for the character, as Shona has previously revealed her alter-ego has a "warped view" about relationships following sexual abuse at the hands of her step-father Tony King.
She told The Sun: "Whitney has a warped view of relationships. There hasn't been a man in her life she could really trust. She thought she loved Tony and didn't realise he was abusing her."
