'EastEnders' actress Shona McGarty believes her character Whitney Dean will choose Tyler Moon over Fatboy Chubb in a romantic new storyline involving all three
'EastEnders' Whitney Dean is too "wrapped up" in Tyler Moon to notice Fatboy Chubb likes her.
The troubled character - played by Shona McGarty - finds herself at the centre of a love triangle when both decide to pursue her following her sex exploitation drama, where she was forced into prostitution, but Shona believes Tyler will emerge the winner.
She said: "Deep down Whitney really fancies Tyler. She gets butterflies when she sees him and feels all nervous when he's around. Those are the kind of feelings a girl her age should be having but given the way her childhood was snatched away from her, I think it's the first time Whitney has really felt this way.
"She'd definitely pick Tyler because she likes a bit of drama. Whitney wouldn't want things to be boring - that's not to say Fatboy's dull but things would just be too nice with him and she knows life isn't like that the whole time."
However, Shona admits Whitney does have a soft spot for Fatboy and hasn't ruled out a romantic relationship between them in the future.
She told Inside Soap magazine: "She's too wrapped up in Tyler to even notice that Fatboy really likes her. Whitney really feels comfortable with him, though, so there's a possibility that something more could develop. He's been there for her through the hard times."
