Viewers of EastEnders were left shocked as Whitney Dean killed Leo King in Friday night’s episode.
For weeks psycho Leo has been stalking Whitney, convinced she’s lying about his dad Tony grooming her when she was a child.
But in tonight’s episode (Friday February 14, 2020) Leo’s reign of terror came to an end.
Whitney realised her final letter from Tony had been taken and phoned the police to give them the update on what she’d discovered.
She then planned to go to the pub with Kush and Kat, but when she was in the bathroom, Leo used Whitney’s phone to say she would be late.
He then confronted Whitney with the letter and a knife as she was getting ready in her bedroom.
Leo was furious to see Tony told Whitney that he loved her, thinking it meant Tony had forgiven her for ‘lying’.
Knowing he could kill her, Whitney threw her box at her crazy ex’s head and made a run for the front door.
