But it was very quickly revealed Tony had been grooming Whitney since she was 12 years.

He manipulated Whitney into believing they were in love and on her sixteenth birthday she booked plane tickets so they could run away together

But when she told Bianca the truth she called the police and Tony was eventually sent to prison for 13 years.

Over three years later, Whitney received a note from Tony via one of his prison friends, saying he would always love her.

But when she went to visit Tony, she learnt he had taken his own life in his cell.

Recently, Tony's secret son Leo has made his way to Walford and made it clear to Bianca that he would be sticking around after she saw him hanging around outside Whitney's wedding to Callum (which didn't end up happening).

While on what was meant to be her honeymoon, Whitney met Leo and the pair soon resumed seeing each other.

However, recently Whitney introduced Tiffany to Leo and her sister became suspicious that he keeps popping up wherever Whitney is.

Despite Whitney telling Leo she isn't ready for a relationship, it looks like he's going nowhere.

Fans are starting to think that Tony King may not have died and will return to Albert Square.
