In fact, she knows so little ahead into the future that she can’t even confirm that there IS a climax in store – but she is looking forward to seeing if Whitney can wake up to Gray and take him down.
The star told Metro.co.uk: ‘We genuinely know nothing about the climax for Gray or if there even is one – we’re just waiting. I prefer that – as a fan of the show, it’s great reading the scripts and getting that “oh my God!”
‘All I get asked now is “when is Gray going to be caught?” Whitney has no idea how much danger she is in from Gray.’
It’s the latest in a long line of traumas for Whitney who has been to hell and back several times with a season ticket.
You’d think Shona would be exhausted by it all but quite the opposite – bring on the drama, she says.
She admitted: ‘I like being busy – I’ve been really lucky to be trusted with such big stories; I don’t want it to stop. I want heartbreak and tragedy all the time if I could. But maybe she needs a little bit of a break – if only for the sake of her tear ducts! But I love Whitney and playing her – I don’t know, maybe she will be happy one day?’
Yeah and Phil Mitchell will join the priesthood, perhaps?
Whitney’s headspace at the moment is all over the place – which led her to drive a car full speed at the Mitchells, who she believes killed Kush.
Shona added: ‘Whitney is obviously still grieving, I guess she’s not thinking straight. When she hears Ben and Callum are still going through with the wedding and are very happy, she gets really angry.
‘She is worried about Callum being married into the family she thinks killed her fiancée, she has so much hatred for Ben and the Mitchells right now. As far as she is concerned, they killed Kush – she’s not happy!’
Yep, we kinda got that impression…
