EastEnders viewers have watched Leo King (played by Tom Wells) up his evil schemes in recent weeks as he took it upon himself to hide in Whitney’s (Shona McGarty) attic as he was desperate to keep an eye on her. The pair were in a violent clash this evening as Leo appeared to be left for dead - what will happen next to Whitney?
Whitney has struggled in the past few months after her wedding to Callum Highway (Tony Clay) failed to take place after he revealed his true feelings for Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden).
She quickly tried to move on and found comfort in mysterious newcomer Leo after the pair met on her solo honeymoon and brought their romance back to Walford.
However, things soon turned dark after she finally discovered Leo’s true identity late last year - the son of her abuser Tony King (Chris Coghill).
Although he appeared to back off, he turned up in the Square in the New Year as he refused to leave Whitney alone.

Recent weeks have seen him up his efforts as he has continued to harass Whitney and those closest to her.
Whitney discovered her house had been broken into last night as good friend Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) came to her aid.
She desperately tried to scrub the house to get rid of Leo's presence in the house but she was unaware he was closer to her than she thought.
Leo, who still remained in Whitney’s house, sent Kat a text to throw her off the scent and delay the pair from meeting as planned.
