It's all about to kick off in EastEnders once again and Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) finds herself being assaulted by Leo King (Tom Wells), as he exacts revenge. 

After growing close to Leo, he takes her to a cemetery and reveals his true identity as the son of Tony King, Whitney’s late abusive father figure.

The pair get into a fight and Leo beats her to the ground and rubs her face in the muddy grave of his father.

Leo himself can be seen covered in cuts and bruises presumably after being beaten up by Callum.  

Troubled Leo had mysteriously turned up at Whitney’s honeymoon and followed her home but had managed to conceal his true identity.

Creepy Leo believes his paedophile father was innocent and is prepared to do whatever it takes to prove it to the rest of Walford.

Tony was introduced to the soap as Bianca's boyfriend back in 2008, after he was released from jail for past crimes.

But in a hard-hitting soap story, it soon came to light that Tony had groomed Whitney from the age of 12.

He also co-erced her into a sexual relationship which she wrongly believed was consensual. He later turned his attentions to 14-year-old Lauren Branning.

Tony went on trial in 2009 and Bianca encouraged a fraught Whitney to give evidence, which she bravely did. 

He was given a 13 year sentence and in 2013, Whitney received a letter to say Tony had always loved her and he soon after took his own life.
