The Zsa Zsa actress believes that Jacqueline Jossa's troubled character is simply going through a stage of extreme binge drinking.
"It's less alcoholism and more binge-drinking is what they are trying to do," Kenny told PA. "That's a very real and relevant teenage story, because it reflects real life.
"EastEnders can sometimes exist in its own land and I always think it's a good thing when it connects to the real world. I don't see her becoming an alcoholic at 18, but I don't know."
Speaking of other Albert Square residents she writes for, Kenny added: "I love writing for little Tiff (Maisie Smith), but I would like to write for Shirley (Linda Henry), because my character was her niece and I really love her.
"But I think it would be daunting because I think Linda is an amazing actress and I would want to do her proud," she admitted.
"I also enjoy writing for Lauren Branning because Jacqueline [Jossa] is a brilliant actress. She's relateable for me in terms of age so she's a nice person to write for."
