EastEnders fans have been left speechless after seeing Shona McGarty showcase her singing talents in last night's episode.
The actress, who has played Whitney Dean since 2008 is currently in the middle of a huge new storyline that sees her character embarking on a new career as a singer after Terry 'Rocky' Cant realised she had a beautiful singing voice.
Despite Whiney's reluctance to stand on stage and let everyone hear her sing, Sonia's dad wasn't going to take no for an answer and soon she found herself booked into a gig at the Queen Vic.
Last night's episode of EastEnders saw Whitney trying to back out of the charity gig, which Rocky had set up with the hope that she would then be able to enter a talent contest and win a cash prize of £10,000.
Thankfully Rocky managed to convince Whitney to take to the stage and sing her heart out... and fans were left speechless when Shona's character started to belt out some Leona Lewis classics.
Viewers took to social media in their droves to praise the EastEnders star on her singing talents...

But it wasn't just fans who were full of praise.
Shona's EastEnders co-stars also took to their social media accounts to tell the world how talented she is, including Max Bowden who plays Ben Mitchell and Lorraine Stanley who fans know as Karen Taylor...

But while Whitney's days of working on a clothes stall in the market could be coming to an end if she makes it as a singer, Tiffany Butcher-Baker was having the worst day of her life when Vinny Panesar dropped the bombshell that her husband Keegan, had cheated on her with their friend Dotty Cotton.
Tiffany's world fell apart as Vinny revealed that the real reason Keegan has been acting so distantly with her is because he's been unfaithful. But while Tiff was stunned into silence, Keegan has no idea his wife knows about his infidelity.
Vinny, who is head-over-heels for Dotty, overheard Keegan and Dotty talking in Ruby's office, both agreeing to keep their moment of passion to themselves. But now the secret is out, tonight's EastEnders promises to be one not to be missed.
