EastEnders fans are petrified for Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) life as she confronted Gray Atkins about his work lies.

Gray (Toby-Alexander Smith) was fired from his job at the law firm and has been keeping his job loss a secret from everyone. Since his sacking, Gray has been working at a burger restaurant to support his family as his previous boss swore to get him blacklisted from other law firms due to his aggressive behaviour.

But Whitney made the shocking discovery last night (Thursday, Nov. 18) after her sneaky mission to find out what’s really going on. 

During Tuesday’s double episode, Whitney was stunned to find out that Gray no longer worked at the law firm after phoning his office to inform him that his daughter, Mia, was okay after being taken home sick from school.

In last night’s episode, Whitney was initially hesitant to act further on it, but Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith) told Whitney not to confront Gray until she was absolutely sure he was lying, which made Whitney determined to do some digging.

To finally discover the truth, Whitney came up with a cunning plan and called Gray while he was on his shift at the burger restaurant saying that his son, Mack, had an accident at school and needed new trousers.

Gray was frustrated with her call and when she said that she was by his office to come and collect his keys, he panicked. He lied and said that he had a meeting with a client and wouldn’t make it back in time.

Later on, Whitney stormed into his house and confronted him about his lies. The conversation got heated and she threatened to tell Chelsea (Zaraah Abrahams), but Gray continued with his lies, and Whitney didn’t seem convinced.

Will Whitney believe his lies? Is Whitney about to become his fourth victim?

Fans on Twitter were scared for Whitney’s life during the confrontation and are worried she’ll meet a grisly end at the hands of Gray…
