What do we know about Leo’s attack in EastEnders?

Recent images showed the raging abuser manhandling Whitney and dragging her to the floor in EastEnders where he rubs her face into the mud around the grave.

Whitney appears terrified as she realises she’s fallen into a dangerous trap.

The cruel assault appears to come after Leo is seen earlier in the day tidying the grave and leaving flowers on the ground above his dead dad.

He then attacks Whitney after the truth about his identity comes to light, viciously shoving her and forcing her to look at her abuser’s grave.

Why does Leo King attack Whitney in EastEnders?

Whitney met Leo following her doomed wedding day to Callum Highway earlier this year.

The pair then enjoyed a holiday romance after the villain followed the rejected bride-to-be to her honeymoon destination.

But Leo didn’t get very far as it was clear that Whitney wasn’t over Callum.

Determined to get closer to Whitney, Leo set out to tarnish Callum’s name and showed her footage he’d found on his Facebook of Callum mocking and jeering at an unconscious woman – which left Whitney disgusted.

Fans were convinced something was wrong about the mystery man – and they’re about to be proved right.

Little does Whitney know that her prince charming is actually the son of her former abuser, Tony.

Tony groomed her as a teenager for years while he was dating her mum Bianca.

And when Whitney spoke out about the abuse, Tony was jailed and later died in prison.

But more recently his son Leo has convinced himself that his dad was innocent and targeted Whitney for revenge

Leo set out to find unlucky-in-love Whitney through her mum Bianca and has led the poor girl to think she’s in a loving relationship with him. 

His cover was nearly blown earlier  last month when Whitney’s surrogate sister Tiffany Butcher revealed she knew Leo.

But Whitney ignored her warnings, leaving Leo free to pick up where he left off with his evil revenge plot.

But how far is Leo prepared to go to get his revenge and will Whitney escape his clutches?

EastEnders fans will have to tune in to find out.

What will happen to Leo in EastEnders?

EastEnders are yet to confirm any specific plot details, but that hasn’t stopped fans taking to Twitter to wish the worst for the evil villain.

One fan tweeted: “Just like his father a total waste of oxygen! Really hope he is exposed to all! #EastEnders.”

Another fan said: “By no means is Whitney my favourite person but I definitely wouldn’t wish this on her. Leo is so horrible I really hope he get what’s coming to him soon #EastEnders.”
