Whitney is being stalked by Leo

Viewers of EastEnders have been left heartbroken for Whitney Dean as she has started to lose her hair from stress.

After finding out Leo's identity, Whitney begged him to leave her alone, but he's gone so far as to set up a market stall opposite hers.

In last night's episode of the soap (January 27 2020) Whitney showed her uncle Jack the log book she has been keeping of Leo's activity.

Jack said he would report Leo, but as he left, Whitney discovered her hair is falling out, leaving viewers devastated for her.

Later, things got heated between Leo and Whitney's friend Kat when he asked her where Whitney was.

The two soon started throwing insults at each other but Leo found joy in winding up Kat's boyfriend Kush.

Later in the pub, Whitney told Kat about her hair, but her mood soon changed when Leo was taken away by police.

However whilst Whitney, Kat, Kush and Martin were out celebrating Leo's arrest, Whitney spotted him walking down the street.

Leo saw Whitney on the club's balcony and went to speak to her, but Kush caught him cornering his friend.

As he got the market stall owner away from Leo, Kush pushed Leo back but pushed him a bit too hard causing him to fall off the balcony.
