EastEnders Character Brutally Attacked at Graveside

EastEnders spotted filming disturbing scenes on location today

It has been revealed today that Whitney Dean will finally discover that love interest Leo, is in fact the son of her abusive step-father, Tony King.

Whitney was groomed and abused by Tony, before he was arrested for the crime in 2008. He subsequently committed suicide in prison, and Leo blames Whitney for his death.

Spotted filming on location today, the disturbing scenes will see Leo drag Whitney to Tony's grave, before he tackles her to the ground and assaulting her, he's then seen rubbing her face in the Tony's muddy grave.

Leo is also a bit battered and bruised which suggests he has also been attacked prior to this scene.


It was revealed earlier this year that Bianca's arrival would spark a long-running storyline for Whitney Dean when Leo King arrived in Walford.
