But Whitney knows there is something her future husband isn't telling her and struggles to get excited as her friends and family plan her hen night.

Thankfully a chat with Sonia is all it takes for Whitney to realise that Callum is the man for her, and she heads home to tell him that she doesn't mind what happened in his past, all she cares about is their future together.
