Whitney wants to help Gray
Speaking about Whitney and Gray, actress Shona McGarty said that her character wants to help the solicitor after Chantelle’s sudden death.
As reported in the Metro, she said: “Whitney feels for Gray after Chantelle passed away.
“She’s watching him struggle with doing school runs, being a single parent and trying to hold down a job at the same time. And his job, she knows is really stressful. She just wants to help really.
“Whitney’s always enjoyed playing the mum role. Even when Tiffany was younger. With Bianca in the Butcher household there was always loads of kids.
“She’d always be the babysitter. Whitney’s been the babysitter for everyone on the Square at some point. She loves children and she’d love to have children of her own one day.”
