'EastEnders' star Shona McGarty: 'I'm not quitting show'

By
EastEnders star Shona McGarty has denied claims that she is close to quitting the soap.

A newspaper report today (January 27) suggested that the 21-year-old is ready to bow out as Whitney Dean as she hopes to pursue a music career.

McGarty, who has played Whitney since 2008, was said to have already spoken to show bosses about the possibility of leaving.

However, the actress dismissed the report by telling Digital Spy today: "I'm very happy at EastEnders and have no current plans to leave."

McGarty has often spoken about her passion for music in interviews. She was also praised for her live rendition of 'A Change Is Gonna Come' on Children in Need last year.

However, viewers will see a new EastEnders storyline begin for Whitney in a few days' time as her boyfriend Tyler Moon (Tony Discipline) proposes to her, keen to show his commitment to their future as a couple.
