In recent EastEnders scenes, Leo King's (Tom Wells) real identity was finally revealed to Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty). The market stall holder had unknowingly been dating her abuser’s son but in chilling scenes Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith) delivered the horrific news while she was away with Leo. Even though Whitney escaped it seems like no one on the Square is safe as Leo is set to return in upcoming scenes.
Once Whitney knew who he really was, she explained the torment and abuse she suffered before his dad was arrested.
At first Leo refused to believe his girlfriend but slowly the horror of what his dad inflicted on Whitney got through to him.
Whitney returned to Albert Square shaken but looking forward to moving on with her life on the BBC soap.
However in last night’s episode, viewers caught a glimpse of Leo lurking on the Square.

While walking through Walford, Whitney opened up to Tiffany and said: “Why can’t life be like a movie Tiff, when do I get my happy ending? I’ve got to stop making the same mistakes.”
“No Whitney not mistakes, Leo groomed you and so did Tony,” Tiffany hit back.
“Why don’t I see it coming?” Whitney questioned.
“You can’t change your past so you’ve got to decide what to do with it,” Tiffany stated.
