EastEnders resident and unlucky-in-love Whitney Dean (played by Shona McGarty) has recently embarked on a new romance with newcomer Leo King (Tom Wells), but she has been keeping the identity of her new man under wraps from her family.
She finally agreed to let her sister, Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith), meet him, however Whitney will soon realise that the pair have already met.
As Whitney has so far been head over heels for her new love interest, she’s still blissfully unaware of his real identity, but it seems he might not have long left before his secret is out.
Leo is left panicked after Tiffany reveals they have previously met each other, as Whitney starts to question her new relationship.
The pair will get into an argument, much to Whitney’s confusion.

Later on, Leo and Whitney meet at E20, and their date is soon interrupted as Callum Highway (Tony Clay) and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) walk in.
She ends up confessing to Leo she is jealous of her younger sister, and she then has an emotional chat with her ex Callum – will he change her mind on the new relationship?
Viewers saw Leo flirting with Tiffany in scenes aired a couple of months ago, but she too is unsure of the new face’s real identity.
As Bianca (Patsy Palmer) caught him chatting to her teenage daughter, she warned him to stay away from Walford, but he clearly took no notice.
Leo is currently trying to get back the money that his grandparents gave Bianca after Whitney’s terrifying abuse from his dad Tony King (Chris Coghill).
He is also convinced his rapist father was innocent of his crimes, and is back to try and clear the name of his late dad.
Long term fans of the show will remember that Tony took his own life after his shame for the abuse he subjected onto Whitney.
Although Whitney has seemingly been able to move on from her traumatic experience, it seems that Leo will continue to try and get back what he thinks is rightfully his.

Bianca is aware he is a threat, and the truth is sure to come out as the pair will inevitably end up coming face to face again soon.
Tiffany is sure to be a continual worry for Leo, as the sisters bond becomes stronger in upcoming months.
She is incredibly protective over her sister given her past ordeals, and will be sure to question her new relationship.
Speaking to Express.co.uk as the Inside Soap Awards, Maisie Smith revealed that Tiffany will have a close part to play in her sister’s new storyline.
She noted: “Whitney’s gone through a lot in the past with relationships, and Tiffany is fully aware of everything she’s been through.”

She hinted that Tiffany could well expose Leo’s background, as she continued: “I think that’s why I had to be sort of getting involved on this one, because she’s not sure, she’s a bit wary.”
Will Tiffany do some digging on her sister’s new love interest and find out who he really is before his sister is in real danger?
Leo star Tom joined earlier in the year and teased his role in a statement.
He said: “I’m really excited to be joining the EastEnders team and seeing what’s in store for Leo.
“He’s definitely a man not to be trusted and I can’t wait to see him settle into Walford – it’s going to be fun.”
EastEnders continues on Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
