EastEnders fans saw a familiar face return to the square in the former of hunky former Blue star Lee Ryan, but is the former boyband singer’s character Woody about to make Whitney Carter forget all about her estranged husband Lee Carter?
Fans claimed that they may have seen a bit of a spark between Woody and Whitney in the most recent episode of the BBC soap, and quickly took to Twitter to speculate that we could soon see a romance between the duo.
“I think something’s gonna happen between that woody and Whitney #EastEnders,” @jessftgabe speculated of a possible new couple on the square, while @KelliPacham tweeted out, “Who else thinks that Woody and Whitney would make a great couple? #EastEnders.”
“We already know Woody and Whitney are gonna bang #Eastenders,” @sammiess1 not to delicately added.
Though EastEnders writers aren’t giving too much away when it comes to a possible romance for Whitney and Woody after Lee Carter left the scene a few weeks ago, Ryan did recently admit that his character isn’t going to be afraid to ruffle a few feathers in the Queen Vic.
“He’s not a bad boy, as such – he’s more sensitive. He’s more of a manipulator, but he’s not a gangster,” Ryan said of Woody in an interview with Heat magazine. “He’s a lot more cheeky, which I love playing, as it’s not too far away from, really.”
Lee then hinted at a possible romantic storyline between Woody and Whitney, admitting that he and Shona McGarty(who plays Whitney) have had a lot of scenes together and already have “banter” on the set.
