EastEnders' Shona McGarty confirms 'romance' for Whitney and Mick

Mickney fans rejoice

Shona McGarty says EastEnders' Whitney Dean will "get closer" to Mick Carter.

The two characters - played by Shona and Danny Dyer - shared a smooch in 2016 when she was dating Mick's son Lee Carter (Danny-Boy Hatchard), and she has hinted history could well repeat itself.

She said: "They'll definitely get closer."

But Shona has largely remained tight-lipped about the show's upcoming 35th anniversary celebrations, which some of the cast have filmed on the River Thames when one character will meet their maker.

They'll definitely get closer.

She added to Mirror Online: "It's been absolutely brilliant. We've just had our 35th anniversary so I think it's a really good time for EastEnders, it's a really great place to work and to even be a part of it.

"It was freezing! But great fun. I got wet, that's all I can say."

Fans seem to be totally behind a 'Mickney' reunion...

Shona recently revealed Whitney will reach "a dark place" in the coming weeks.

The 28-year-old star has teased fans that her character - who she has played since 2008 - is going to be really tested in the near future, and she is relishing "being busy" on the BBC One soap.

She told Digital Spy: "Whitney's definitely going to reach a dark place - there's a lot of things that are going to test her.

"I just love being busy, I love being there.

"Obviously I can't say, but it's all very exciting there's a lot to look forward to."

And the actress has predicted the mystery star whose character will die in the boat tragedy will "do very well" away from Albert Square.
