Zack Cheating With Lauren Maybe The Reason For Whitney’s Exit On EastEnders

Zack Hudson is not leaving Eastenders in season 33, but the show will say goodbye to Whitney Dean.

James Farrar, better known as Zack Hudson from the BBC soap opera “EastEnders,” has been portraying the role since 2021.

Key Takeaways

  • The latest episode of EastEnders shows Zack finding out about Britney’s truth.
  • Whitney thinks it was Lauren who spilled the bean, but it was Britney herself.
  • At the end of the scene, Zack and Lauren are seen having a steam kiss.

The character appeared in episode 6237, originally broadcast on 16 March 2021, and since has captured the hearts of soap opera fans.

The year has been full of emotional, dramatic, and unexpected farewells. Many series characters have left the show, and fans wonder if beloved James is next.

Well, for now, he is safe. Regardless, instead of him, actress Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean), his love interest, is about to leave the show.

In an interview, Shona said about her exit, “It wasn’t an easy decision because I’ve made so many friends. I’ve seen people come and go, and meanwhile, Whitney has been one of the longest-standing characters.”

She added, “I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, but it was the right decision for me as I want to do other things. After 15 years, I’ve had a pretty good run!”

What Will Be Whitney Dean’s Reason For Exit?

Two factors probably can cause the ordeal: first, her lying to Zack about Britney and second, Zack cheating with Lauren.

Whitney met troubled youngster Britney when she visited her stepmother Bianca Jackson in Milton Keynes, who was a neighbor’s daughter.

Whitney quickly bonded with the teenager, whose mother was neglectful to her. Later on, she even paid off her mother to take Britney under her care.

However, she lied to Zack that she’d adopted her with social services aware.

Then comes her friend, Lauren Branning, who knows the truth and urges her to come clean with Zack; otherwise, they could be in trouble with the law and lose everything.

Regardless, Lauren rats her, and Zack loses it (but Britney herself actually told the truth).

Adding fuel to the fire, pregnant Whitney confessed she would choose Britney over him any day after they fought.

As a result, like every human, Hudson feels unsupported and sidelined by Whitney’s inability to matter to him.

On the other hand, she also had a fallout with Lauren, with her blaming her for everything. After that, Zack and Lauren headed out together to cool their mind.

Shockingly, they were later captured sharing a steamy kiss down an alley.

Only time will tell how the story will progress, but one thing is certain: EastEnders’ viewers will have a fantastic time!
