What did Shirley’s son Dean do EastEnders

Answered By: Hayden Baker Date: created: Dec 13 2023

2014–2016 – Dropping his former nickname, Dean returns to the UK and develops a relationship with his maternal grandfather, Stan Carter ( Timothy West ). He follows Stan back to Walford, opening a salon there named Blades, funded by Stan, and briefly dating Lauren Branning ( Jacqueline Jossa ).

He acquaints himself with his mother’s family, who now own The Queen Vic, but is unkind towards Shirley, verbally abusing her for her poor parenting, leading to Mick Carter ( Danny Dyer ) punching him. Dean slowly bonds with his mother and begins to integrate into his newfound family. He is attracted to, then, later, obsessed with Mick’s partner, Linda Carter ( Kellie Bright ), who maternally hugs him after Shirley hurts him by stealing from him because she owes Phil Mitchell ( Steve McFadden ).

Dean breaks into Phil’s house, reclaiming the money. Dean also gropes Linda’s buttocks during a photoshoot at Blades. Although Dean helps clean Shirley up after she shoots Phil, Shirley’s aunt Babe Smith ( Annette Badland ) refuses to let Shirley take Dean with them as she flees from the police, leaving Dean distraught.

Linda comforts him and Dean attempts to have sex with her. When Linda protests, Dean rapes her. Linda tells no one about the ordeal but is mentally traumatized, more so when she discovers she is pregnant and fears that the baby is Dean’s. Dean continues as if nothing has happened and begins dating Stacey after she moves into a flat shared with him.

Stacey, herself a rape survivor, starts to notice Linda flinch whenever Dean is present and works out what has happened. She ends her relationship with Dean, throwing him out and refusing to believe his version of events; that sex with Linda had been consensual and that Linda’s reaction stems from guilt.

  • Stacey persuades Linda to tell Mick, which she finally does on Christmas Day 2014.
  • Mick responds by pummelling Dean and is only stopped by Shirley’s confession that Mick and Dean are, in fact, brothers.
  • It transpires that Shirley is Mick’s mother, not his sister, as he has grown up believing.
  • The revelations cause a split amongst the family, with Shirley and Stan siding with Dean and refusing to believe Linda.

Fights occur between Dean and the Carters, culminating in Dean being arrested by the police for rape and being released on bail. When the community finds out what Dean is being accused of, his social life and business are ruined. He goes to stay with his sister, Carly, in York, but later returns and attempts to exact revenge on the Carters by breaking into The Queen Vic’s cellar and trying to set it on fire.

  • He is stopped by Mick, who assaults him so intensely that Mick’s daughter, Nancy ( Maddy Hill ), fears her father has murdered Dean.
  • When Dean’s body goes missing from the cellar, Nancy suspects that Mick has disposed of Dean’s body.
  • However, Dean returns two months later in the company of Buster Briggs ( Karl Howman ), whom Shirley has recently revealed to be the biological father of both Dean and Mick.

Buster announces that he has booked tickets to Greece for Dean, Shirley and himself to start a new life together. Not wanting a life as a fugitive for Dean, Shirley calls the police and informs them of his whereabouts and he is arrested for breaking his bail conditions.

  • He is released weeks later, without charge, due to a lack of evidence and agrees to remain in Walford with his parents, despite being made a local pariah.
  • After Linda gives birth, Dean insists the baby, Ollie, is his.
  • However, Mick shares the baby’s blood type while Dean does not, meaning Dean is not the father.

Shortly after, Dean discovers that a one-night stand with Shabnam Masood ( Rakhee Thakrar ), years earlier, resulted in her becoming pregnant with his daughter, Roya, renamed Jade Green (Amaya Edward). Shabnam claims that the baby died, not wanting Dean to know the child has been adopted, but Dean suspects she is lying.

  • Dean confronts Shabnam at her engagement party, then has sex with Roxy Mitchell ( Rita Simons ).
  • Shirley tells Dean that Jade suffers from cystic fibrosis, leaving Dean infuriated that she lied.
  • Devastated, Dean trashes Blades until Buster intervenes, then Shirley convinces him that Jade needs her father, so they carry out a DNA test to confirm paternity.

He embarks on a relationship with Roxy. The DNA results prove Dean is the father. He reveals Jade’s existence to a contemptuous Mick and Linda. Linda rejects Dean when he offers to put the past behind them. Buster talks Dean out of trying for custody of Jade, so Shirley decides she will.

  • Dean doesn’t know how to relate to his daughter.
  • Jade’s visit is a disaster as Dean unknowingly reveals Jimbo died and she rushes out when she overhears.
  • Mick takes her back.
  • Her foster father tells Shirley and Buster they are unsuitable custodians.
  • Roxy tells Dean she wants their relationship kept hidden, but when Roxy’s sister Ronnie Mitchell ( Samantha Womack ) finds out, she forces Roxy to end it.

However, they resume it again in secret, and Dean finds Ronnie’s hidden spy camera, and sees Ronnie kissing Vincent Hubbard ( Richard Blackwood ). He deletes a message from Ronnie to Roxy. Dean’s insecurity over Roxy’s feelings for her missing brother-in-law, Charlie Cotton ( Declan Bennett ), leads him to burn her with hair straighteners, and later he cuts a chunk out of her hair.

Dean proposes to Roxy to distance her from Ronnie’s influence and then reveals to the Carters and Roxy that Ronnie tried to poison him. Dean and Roxy get engaged but when his anger causes her to get a cut on her face, she ends their relationship. Dean refuses to accept her decision and attempts to rape her, only prevented by Shirley’s timely interruption.

Roxy then flees for the police station, while Shirley attempts to drown Dean in the bath out of desperation, however she is unsuccessful and Dean strikes Shirley. During a heated argument with Linda over Roxy, Dean admits he raped Linda, then flees and hides.

  1. The next day, he arrives at Mick and Linda’s wedding, where he attempts to kill Shirley by jumping into a lake with her.
  2. Mick saves them both, and the police arrive and arrest Dean for the attempted rape of Roxy.
  3. The following day, a letter arrives for Shirley from Dean, asking her to visit.
  4. Shirley and Buster both visit Dean in prison – where he tells them he needs help getting a good lawyer with the money from Blades.

However, Shirley and Buster instead make it clear to Dean they do not want any further contact with him, and Buster warns Dean he knows people in prison who could make his life hell. One month later, Shirley hears that Dean has his plea hearing so visits him, urging him to plead guilty, threatening to disown him if he does not.

However, in court, he pleads not guilty, but, as he has failed to surrender to bail previously, he is remanded in custody until his trial. In August 2016, off-screen, Dean is acquitted of attempted rape, due to lack of evidence, and Buster pays him off, warning him not to return to Walford again. After Mick disappears and is presumed dead on Christmas Day 2022, Shirley decides to stay with Carly and her grandson.

Off-screen, she also reunites with Dean when staying with Carly and it is revealed through a social media photo posted by Carly which Linda sees in February 2023, leaving her horrified.

: EastEnders’ Linda dealt a nasty reminder as Dean ‘returns’ amid her struggles

Did Dean get Linda pregnant EastEnders?

What happened to Dean in EastEnders? – Matt Di Angelo as Dean Wicks in EastEnders. BBC When Dean first arrived in 2006, he was a troublemaking charmer. His dad Kevin Wicks (Phil Daniels) was killed, and mum Shirley had been absent in his life for years. But Dean first showed worrying signs of his future actions when he spiked Stacey Slater’s (Lacey Turner) drink and framed Bradley Branning (Charlie Clements) for what he’d done.

  • Later, when Shirl wanted to reconnect with her children, Dean reacted violently and pinned his mum against a wall.
  • He spent some years away before returning in 2014 and he bonded with his family, with Shirley now living at The Vic with son Mick (Danny Dyer) – who had yet to be revealed as such.
  • Towards the end of the year, Dean was left alone with Linda who offered him comfort when Shirl fled from police after shooting Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Dean then tried to have sex with Linda, and when she tried to stop him, he raped her, Months later, and now pregnant, Linda found the strength to confide in Mick. When Mick violently attacked Dean, Shirley screamed that the two men were brothers, leaving the Carters in further shock.

  • Dean was arrested and bailed, and Shirley refused to believe that he had assaulted Linda.
  • Later, Mick had another showdown with Dean in which it appeared he had killed his brother.
  • But the latter returned, and Shirley put a stop to his plans to skip bail by heading abroad.

When Linda gave birth to baby Ollie, Dean believed the baby was his – but Mick sought out the paperwork with his brother’s blood group which allowed him to prove that Dean was definitely not the father. However, Dean then learned that a previous fling with Shabnam Masood (Rakhee Thakrar) had conceived a daughter, Jade Green (Amaya Edward).

What deal did Dean make with death?

Devil’s Bargain I can honestly say that as last night’s episode of Supernatural progressed, it looked less and less like there would be significant progress in the search for Sam’s soul. Dean was killing people (because he was acting as Death), and Sam had hopped aboard the crazy train in his effort to remain soulless (destination: E-ville).

Then, Dean failed his mission. Bleak. The surprise? Death came through anyway, and in a blast of white light, Sam suddenly had soul again. Join me in a big, fat, joy-filled “Woah!!” I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: The pace of this season has been outstanding. I very much expected this no-soul thing to continue until season’s end (which would have been agonizing).

So I was pleased as a piece of diner pie (Dean’s favorite) that this is where we found ourselves midseason. I think it’s a sign of good things to come creatively. That said, I felt like this episode was rather short—even though my Tivo promised me that it was 42 minutes as always.

  • I think I get this feeling every time the boys are the case of the week rather than a group of strangers.
  • That’s not necessarily a bad thing—in fact, that often produces the most monumental episodes—but it does make for a strange episode to reflect upon.
  • Take Dean’s plot for instance.
  • At the beginning, we found Dean rolling up to a butcher shop in Chinatown that was almost as plentiful in dead animal carcasses as it was in health code violations.

In short: disgusting. But not too gross for Dean to go seeking some back alley medicine courtesy of a doctor who specialized in hunter care (played by the man responsible for 90 percent of my childhood nightmares, Robert Englund.) For what looked like at least a few hundred bucks, the doctor agreed to kill Dean for three minutes and then bring him back.

If he was unable to be revived, obviously, he’d be dead for good. Yeah, that sounded dangerous even to Dean. So he handed the doc a letter for Ben (aww) and told him to mail it if something went awry. That’s when the doc noted the same thing I did: Nothing for Sam? No, said Dean. “If I don’t make it back, nothing I say is going to mean a damn thing to him,” he said.

(Dean, dear, it’s getting very tiring playing this tiny violin.) That’s actually the whole reason Dean was going on this journey to the dead. It was his latest move in the Save Sam’s Soul campaign. The plan was to meet up with Death and use Death’s ring (that they took last season) as leverage to convince him to get Sam’s soul back.

But once confronted with the deal, Death was less interested in getting his ring (because he claimed to know where Dean had hidden it) and more interested in getting Dean to walk in his shoes. So he made him a deal: If Dean could be death for 24 hours, Sam would get his soul back. The caveat was that if Dean took the ring off before the 24 hours were up, he’d lose.

NEXT: Dean puts a ring on it. Originally, Dean had tried to get Adam out of hell, too, but Death made him pick between Sam’s soul and Adam. Dean naturally chose Sam’s soul. If nothing else, it was a nice reminder that Adam had not been completely forgotten by the brothers.

  • Erm, I know I had.) Dean also asked Death if he could trim the dark and twisty part off of Sam’s damaged soul—as if it was a piece of burnt toast that just needed the black junk scraped away—but Death explained that it wasn’t so simple.
  • Instead, he offered to “put up a wall” that would block those parts out of Sam’s mind.

The disclaimer was that if the wall came crashing down, there’d be a flood of not-so-good memories, and Sam would “be done.” The ominous tone that Dean used when saying the latter line sent chills through my bones—and not the type of happy shivers I usually get seeing him on screen.

Dean decided it was a risk he was willing to take, but Sam, not so much. Back at Bobby’s (long time no see), where Dean had hidden the ring, Sam bitched because Dean was messing with his life, and he wanted to make his own decisions. It was very season 1, with Dean taking charge because he was older, and Sam dragging his feet the entire way.

I can’t decide who should have won in this instance, but I’m leaning toward Sam. Of course, that’s not what happened because Dean is kind of bratty when he doesn’t get his way. So Dean left to go be Death for a day. Much of the burden of Dean’s deal fell on Tess, who had to escort Dean’s (cute) newbie ass around as he played Death, a role that didn’t provide as many surprises as you might think.

  • Dean’s first kill was an armed robber, and he had no problem sending the douche downstairs.
  • Second was a pizza-loving man who was playing chicken with a heart attack.
  • The heart attack won.
  • And his third was a little girl with a heart condition whose number was up.
  • As you might have guessed, Dean—ever the softy for the short bunch—couldn’t bring himself to kill the girl.

But his resistance caused a disorder in the universe, and kicked off a slippery slope of death, starting with a young nurse whose entire life was ahead of her. Seeing the error in his ways, Dean tried to right the wrong by saving the woman’s drunk-driving husband but ended up having to take off the ring to do so.

  • Wah-wah. The only surprise here was that after taking it off, he voluntarily put it back on so he could go kill the young girl—as he realized he should have done from the beginning.
  • Meanwhile, Sam was searching for a way to prevent Dean from shoving his soul back in him, so he called upon Angel Gordon Ramsay (Balthazar) for advice, despite having told him during their last encounter that he wanted to “fry his wings extra crispy.” (Sam, why must you burn bridges?!) Balty, who was delighted at the thought of Sam being indebted to him, told Sam that the key was ingredient he needed for the blocking spell was the blood of his father, “but the father needn’t be blood.” (Oh, Bobby.

He’ll never stop paying for being a good man, will he?) NEXT: Let there be souls! So Sam tried to attack Bobby, but ninja Bobby sensed it and got a smack on Sam first. (A hunky hairline injury, of course.) The problem was that Sam disappeared into the darkness of Bobby’s cave before the elder hunter could tie him up.

  • Luckily, Bobby lives in a carnival fun house with trap doors and secret levers, so he was able to trap Sam in a room with a titanium steel door.
  • The nut still found a way out, though—but not before Bobby and Sam got a chance to have a heart-to-heart about Sam’s predicament.
  • It had been a while since we’d seen the two of them bond over more than an awkward game of cards or a quick beer.

Would have been even sweeter had Sam not tried to kill Bobby again. He almost succeeded, too, but Dean returned from role-playing Death just in time to tie his butt up and stick him in the panic room, which at this point can probably just be called Sam’s Room.

  1. Weary from the day’s work, Dean found himself at a loss for answers—until Death showed up with a greasy meal and some information.
  2. I loved this scene for a few reasons, but Death’s assessment that the death ring was, “heavier than it looks,” was such a great line for the moment because it applied to every aspect of the brothers’ present struggles.

And you could tell in Dean’s face that he felt the same way. He told Death that he knew that some things were meant to be, and that his experience from the day made him wish he had killed the little girl to begin with, instead of trying to mess with the “natural order.” Death told him the day had been a lesson about exactly that: the way things were meant to be.

  • So he agreed to give Sam’s soul back (with the wall) because it’s how things were supposed to be.
  • You’re digging at something, the intrepid detective,” he told Dean.
  • I want you to keep diggingit’s about the souls.” With that, Sammy got his soul back, with a warning, “Don’t scratch the wall because trust me, you’re not going to like what happens.” Then Sam’s screams pierced my soul.

Ugh. Emotional! And it appears that while the episode felt short, it was really packed, So what did you think, readers? Were you a little off-put by Dean letting the robber suffer? (Press “1” for “yes,” “2” for “bastard deserved it.”) Did Robert Englund feel underused to you? How cool was the Dean-Sam stare-off while Sam was in the panic room? How great were Jim Beaver’s fatherly interaction with the boys in this episode? Were you as pleased with Tess and Death’s returns as I was? And what’s next on this soul train? And what does “scratching at the wall” mean? What’s the bigger picture here? In questions of the I-watch-too-closely variety, did you notice that Dean alternated between using capital letters and lower case? (That question has no point, but I just found it to be a funny character trait.) Did the sight of that gross butcher shop make you itchy? And did you, too, want to give Dean a better upper lip shave the entire episode? Don’t forget, Supernatural returns Jan.28, a.k.a.

  1. Way too freakin’ long from now.
  2. QUOTEABLES Dean: Well, you know, I’m no germ freak but Dr.
  3. Robert: Rent’s cheap.
  4. Nothing lasts forever.
  5. Well, I do.” —Death Sam: So is this the part where you pull a gun on me and lock me in the panic room? Bobby: Do I have to? Balthazar re: Sam’s soul: Michael and Lucy are hate-banging it as we speak Tess: When people die, they might have questions for you.

Well, not you but death. Dean: You mean like, ‘How did Betty White outlast me?’ Man: Wait, will you tell me what it all means? Dean: Everything is dust in the wind. Man: That’s it!? A Kansas song? “Don’t say ‘Here’s Johnny.'” —Bobby as Sam smacks through a door with an ax “Ain’t anybody killin’ me in my house but me.” —Bobby

How does Dean get out of his death deal?

Season 3, Episode 16, “No Rest for the Wicked” – Dean’s first “permanent” death is in season 3, episode 16, “No Rest for the Wicked,” when he is torn apart by hellhounds that then drag him to Hell. Dean’s death is the result of a crossroads deal he made at the end of season 2, in which he offered his own life in exchange for Sam’s.

Does Sam leave EastEnders?

Why did Sam Mitchell leave EastEnders? (Image credit: BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron) After her explosive return to EastEnders last year, soap legend Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) made her mark on the Square with her scheming ways, so it was no surprise that fans were left devastated by her leaving Walford once again.

  1. Her arrival saw her try and destroy her brother Phil Mitchell’s ( Steve McFadden ) business empire, be blackmailed by criminal drug lord Jonah, kidnap her nephew Ben Mitchell’s ( Max Bowden ) rapist and have an affair with Zack Hudson (James Farrar).
  2. Although Walford tends to bring out the worst for some of the residents — it seemed to be a different story for Sam as we got to see a softer side to her flawed character.

During her time on the Square, she rekindled her relationship with estranged son Ricky Jr (Frankie Day), supported his troubled half-sister Amy Mitchell ( Ellie Dadd ) through her self-harming and helped Zack as he came to terms with his HIV diagnosis, Sam managed to bond with her son Ricky Jr. (Image credit: BBC) Sam bid an emotional farewell to EastEnders after being offered a job by her ex-fiancé Don to run a hotel in Spain. Despite the protests from Phil and her ex lover Jack Branning (Scott Maslen), Sam accepted the job, so that she could use her income to help support Ricky’s new baby and help the family in the long run.

  1. Fed up of his mum abandoning him again, Ricky refused to turn up to his mum’s farewell party.
  2. But thanks to Amy, Ricky had a change of heart and said goodbye to Sam.
  3. Sam promised to call him everyday from Spain and vowed to bring back some much-needed cash for Ricky, Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) and their unborn baby.

“I love you, mum,” Ricky said, before the pair hugged and Sam tearfully left in a taxi. However, fans can be reassured that Sam’s exit is only temporary and she will return to Walford later this year.

Did Dean have a family?

God or no God, you go to Hell !

Dean Winchester (b. January 24, 1979 – d.2025 ) was a human and hunter as well as a member of the Men of Letters with his younger brother Sam, He and his brother are members of the Winchester and Campbell families. Through his father, Dean is the older half-brother of Adam Milligan,

  • Dean is also the destined vessel of the Archangel Michael,
  • He and Sam are also the surrogate sons of the late Bobby Singer,
  • Dean is best friends with the angel Castiel, close friend to the late prophet Kevin Tran, and reluctant ally of Crowley,
  • Dean has an ex-girlfriend, Lisa Braeden, who he lived with for a year when he thought Sam was in Hell,

She has a child named Ben, who Dean acted as a father for during that year. Dean’s biological child was an amazon named Emma, He is also the former apprentice of Alastair, Both Dean and Sam were raised in the hunting life by their father, after the demon Azazel killed their mother,

Dean’s main role in the series is being the self-appointed guardian of Sam and often going to extreme lengths to protect him regardless of personal cost. Often in these occurrences Dean finds himself the center of a much larger picture. When he was killed by Metatron whilst using the Mark of Cain, Dean returned as a demon and a Knight of Hell loyal only to himself.

He was then cured by his brother using purified blood, Eventually, the Mark was removed, but the price was that the Darkness has now been released into the world, something Dean tried to avoid. Dean and his brother soon met God who returned to help put an end to the danger to the world.

During this time, Dean got through to God about not sacrificing himself and The Darkness about not destroying all of reality and helped them reconcile. As a reward, Dean was given back his mother and was able to return to his usual style of hunting with his family. With his mother trapped in an alternate reality, Dean set out with Sam, Castiel and the Nephilim Jack to rescue Mary and reunite his family, a situation made more urgent by the upcoming invasion of an alternate reality Michael,

Following the reunion of his family, Dean agreed to become the vessel for the alternate Michael in order to finish Lucifer once and for all. Aided by Michael, Dean faced Lucifer in battle and ultimately killed the rogue archangel and ended his long reign of terror.

  • This victory was short-lived as Dean was to be betrayed by Michael who took full control of Dean and became loose upon the Main Universe in Dean’s body, his one true vessel.
  • Michael would use him for weeks before he left Dean’s body on his own for unknown reasons.
  • In the days after, Dean struggled with re-adjusting to being himself again as he tried to help Sam on hunts.

However, he regain his will and did better in hunting, as he and his family decided to go after Michael and defeat him. Dean also bonded with Jack after learning his declining health. During a confrontation with Michael, the Archangel retook control of Dean after revealing that he left to break his spirits and locked the hunter away in his subconscious.

However, Dean manages to trap Michael within his own subconscious shortly thereafter, but is left worried for what will occur if the archangel escapes. Following a hunt, Dean lost concentration over keeping Michael imprisoned but the latter instead escaped Dean’s mind and took Rowena for an alternative vessel while inflicting revenge on Dean.

However, Michael was then killed by Jack, saving the world from his influence and freeing Dean of his grasp. Almost five years after defeating God himself, Dean is killed for a final time during the Masked Vampires hunt. Dean accepts his fate and his soul goes to Heaven where he is reunited with Bobby Singer and later Sam who lived out a full life with a son that he names in honor of Dean.

  1. Following his death, Dean takes a detour through the Multiverse while driving through Heaven in search of a world that his family had a chance at a happy ending in.
  2. In the process, Dean discovers the existence of the Akrida, a race of monsters created by Chuck as a failsafe to wipe out everything in the event of his defeat.

Defying Jack’s orders against interference, Dean brings the Monster Club together to defeat the Akrida which threatens both his own world and theirs. Afterwards, Dean is returned to Heaven by Jack, satisfied that he had found what he was looking for and leaving his journal and the Colt to his parents.

What is Linda’s secret in EastEnders?

Who is Linda calling? (Picture: BBC) Ever since Linda Carter ( Kellie Bright ) received the news that Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) was planning to sell Mick’s ( Danny Dyer ) half of the Queen Vic in EastEnders, she has been desperately looking for a buyer.

  1. However, it seems she may be after a very particular person, after making a mysterious phone call in tonight’s episode.
  2. There is currently a war brewing between Sharon Watts ( Letitia Dean ) and The Panesars over the ownership of the Vic, leaving Linda stuck in the middle,
  3. As much as sharing the pub with her best friend sounds like a good idea on paper, Linda confessed to Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker) that she was concerned that they may have conflicting ideas over how to run the place.

Also, she is still unsure about whether or not she can trust Nish (Navin Chowdhry) to stay a silent partner, as he has promised. Patrick pointed out that she appeared to be stuck between a rock and a hard place, and suggested that she look for another option.

‘Somebody who has the Panesars’ business acumen but is not going to mess with the way you do things,’ he recommended. ‘Somebody you can trust.’ Patrick’s pep talk seemed to inspire Linda, who later made a phone call to a mystery person, promising that she would ditch both of the offers she already had to go with them.

Sorry, this video isn’t available any more. But just who was she talking to? Executive producer Chris Clenshaw has revealed that the mystery buyer will be someone unexpected, as he teased what is to come for Linda. ‘Linda’s world has been thrown upside down by seeing a photo of Shirley with Dean, but she’s forced to focus on who her new business partner will be or face losing her home.

Both Sharon and Nish are hoping to get the keys to the castle, but her knight in shining armour may not be who you think.’ It has been revealed in a spectacular flash-forward episode that Linda is a member of ‘The Six’, a group of Walford women who will be involved in a murder on Christmas Day 2023.

What happened to Whitney Dean’s baby?

EastEnders fans ‘work out’ Whitney Dean’s sad exit storyline in baby twist EastEnders viewers believe recent scenes on the BBC soap have teased how Whitney Dean will leave, after actress Shona McGarty quit her role after 15 years on the show EastEnders: Whitney is told she doesn’t qualify for bereavement leave fans are convinced they have worked out what leads to Whitney Dean leaving the soap early next year, after 15 years in Walford.

Shona McGarty recently quit the role after more than a decade playing Whitney, and she has since spoken out about her decision. It comes amid a difficult time for her character, after her baby daughter Peach sadly died. Whitney made the difficult decision to terminate her after learning her baby had Edward’s Syndrome.

Due to how far into her pregnancy Whitney was, she had to deliver her daughter in heartbreaking scenes with partner Zack Hudson by her side. After a rocky time, the pair recently got back together but were left unsure of their future, as they had differing ideas on starting a family together.

Whitney was unsure she could go through pregnancy again after her loss, and was keen to look into fostering or adoption, but Zack wasn’t happy about it. On Thursday night he did come around to it though, and they decided to look into fostering children together. But while the couple seemed happy and loved-up, fans knew something would change as Whitney is leaving early next year.

Now, many are predicting how she will leave the soap, and it could see sad scenes play out. One key theory is that Zack will cheat with former flame Sam Mitchell, and that Sam might fall pregnant. EastEnders fans are convinced they have worked out what leads to Whitney Dean leaving the BBC soap ( BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron) Other fans questioned whether there would be a twist involving Sonia Fowler, following the news she planned to start a family with her partner Reiss, with them deciding to look into IVF treatment.

  1. Amid speculation Reiss is up to no good, some fans wondered if Whitney could end up leaving with Sonia’s child.
  2. Taking to, one viewer said: “calling it now Sonia gets pregnant Reiss gets arrested and put in prison for fraud.
  3. Sonia gives baby to Whitney and Whitney leaves on her own with the baby.” Another agreed: “Whitney’s definitely leaving with a child why do I feel like it’ll be Sonia’s.” A third fan said: “There were definitely heavy hints of a breakup for Zack and Whitney in this scene.

I think he will get Sam pregnant.” It comes as Shona explained her decision to leave the show. She said it wasn’t an “easy” decision leaving her friends and colleagues as well as her character behind, and that she feels grateful she’s been trusted with some of the soap’s biggest stories, including the more sensitive ones.

Speaking to Inside Soap, she said: “It wasn’t an easy decision because I’ve made so many friends. I’ve seen people come and go, and meanwhile, Whitney has been one of the longest-standing characters. “I’ve had so much fun and done so many storylines, some of which have been sensitive, and I’ve been honoured to be trusted with such heavy stuff year after year.

So I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, but it was the right decision for me as I want to do other things. After 15 years, I’ve had a pretty good run!” Shona’s exit was announced last week, and she vowed she’d be keeping in touch with her co-stars.

She said: “I have decided to spread my wings and will be leaving, I have loved my years in the show. I have been trusted with some incredible storylines and have made amazing friendships — and family — which will endure.” EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Is Ollie from EastEnders autistic in real life

Answered By: Keith Campbell Date: created: Apr 06 2024

Walford Web-Autism story confirmed for Ollie Carter Administrator 38K 70,293 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T19:03 EE have been working with the National Autistic Society. Quote from Jane Harris, NAS: We were absolutely delighted when EastEnders contacted us about this storyline. We jumped at the chance to be involved because we recognised that it was a fantastic opportunity to help millions of viewers understand more about the autism assessment process and what families go through in order to get a diagnosis.

There are over 700,000 autistic people in the UK and most people know someone who is autistic, whether it’s a friend, classmate, colleague or family member. Yet only 16% of autistic people and their families feel the public understand autism and half of autistic people sometimes don’t leave the house because they’re afraid the public won’t understand them.

So it’s hugely encouraging to see more TV dramas representing storylines about autism in their work.” Jon Sen said: “EastEnders has a history of doing ground-breaking stories that resonate with the nation. When Mick and Linda start to worry about Ollie’s behaviour, they face various challenges as they search for the answers necessary to help their son.

EastEnders has been privileged to work closely with the National Autistic Society to accurately depict the pressure and struggles that can be felt by parents as they begin this journey.” Silver Member 6,032 7,973 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T19:05 It took me a minute or two to adjust when I saw Jane Harris had been quoted there.

I’m sure autism has been done before but to depict it from early childhood must be a first? Either way, it’s something fresh for EastEnders and exploring it with the immensely popular Danny Dyer will surely be beneficial for helping to raise awareness of the story., like this post 2 people like this post Bronze Member 3,044 872 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T19:19 Speaking as a sibling of someone with Autism this is a great story to see explored on the show and it suits the Carters down to the ground I hope they do show both sides of what it’s like raising a child with Autism truthfully and highlight the support Mick and Linda can get.1 person likes this post Bronze Member 4,271 9,068 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T19:20 It’s such an important issue to bring it to the light and I’m sure Kellie Bright will knock this story out of the park effortlessly with her talents.

Gold Member 13K 22,250 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T19:21 The Carters are much more bearable now than they’ve ever been. I adore how we see them as the publicans of the Queen Vic and they now actually have equal screen time as opposed to unnecessary domination. I also like how they’re not attached by the hips and Shirley/Tina are occupied with other units/sets.

This autism story will give Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright some great material to work with. I’m by no means a fan of the Carters, but I do realise their popularity. It’s just four years of saturation that made them so abhorrent. This is the perfect story to ensure they are still given material whilst being toned down.

  • I’m happy for them to stay in The Vic if the show can keep up this happy medium.

No more silly money stories, Stuart stories and “he’s your brother!” nonsense. It’s no surprise when they’ve both taken more of a backseat that the show improves. It’s good to see Dyer and Bright have something real to get their teeths into as actors, I think this will be a very interesting story to follow. 38K 70,293 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T22:46 Forest11 wrote: I wonder if at some point ollie will be recasted to played by someone with autism – if Mick or Linda are still in the show in five years time it will be quite hard to have a non autistic 9 year old portray a realistic autistic person – especially as they writing Ollie to be one who is not socialable (Some autsitic people are the opposite and are very sociable – I fall somewhere in the middle.) Have you seen BBC One’s The A Word? They have a non-autistic actor playing a 7 year old autistic boy and he’s very good and gives a nuanced, layered performance.

However EastEnders seem to do really badly with casting child actors 90% of the time so I don’t hold out much hope they’ll find a gem like him. Bronze Member 4,593 4,030 Jun 11, 2019 2019-06-11T23:22 I’m really excited for this storyline, partly for selfish reasons in that as an autistic person myself it’s really great to see more representation of autism within TV and the media (and hopefully more understanding) with the likes of Hollyoaks introducing a regular teenager with autism last year and now EE with Ollie, but also because seeing a child being diagnosed with autism in the early stages of his life and seeing that develop over time is something I think could be really good and have wanted to see for a while.

Autism is such a broad and varying subject to cover but also one that could/should/hopefully will provide lots of great but very human and realistic material for the Carter’s and other characters on the show. On the Controversial Soap Stories programme the other night Phil Redmond (at least I think it was him) said that one of the unique things about soaps is we can see it play our in real time over however many years, something which you can’t really do with a six-part drama etc, and this is one of those stories that fits that description I think., like this post 2 people like this post Bronze Member 2,516 1,179 Jun 12, 2019 2019-06-12T05:46 Will be very interested in seeing this storyline since if people hadn’t guessed, I also have Autism and I need to have my things in order and sometimes go off to my own little world.

  1. Though I’m not sure if that was because of the Autism or the OCD.

  3. This is exactly the kind of things that the show should be tackling.

It’s a brilliant story for the Carter’s. A real human story rather than the rubbish they have been doing over the last years which put me off them. Excited Sent from my LLD-L31 using Tapatalk Moderator 32K 52,107 Jun 13, 2019 2019-06-13T20:41 I work with autistic kids every day and I’ve been so happy that EastEnders have chosen to do this story over the last few days. Autism is such a misunderstood diagnosis and it will be so wonderful to see the full diagnosis process play out on national television in a, hopefully, sensitive way.

It does also strike me as something of an investment for the Carter family. This isn’t really an issue storyline in the same way that they tackle addiction or abuse, this isn’t something they can leave behind in nine months when all the boxes in the pamphlet have been checked off, this is an element of Ollie Carter that will always be there.

I don’t know how long Kellie and Danny plan to stay with the show but them being given a story like this tells me that there’s no end in sight, at the moment, for the Carter family. And this is exactly the kind of thing that makes that future seem promising and full of purpose.

  • And this is exactly the kind of thing that makes that future seem promising and full of purpose.
  • Yeah and there are also elements of this storyline that can’t be explored until Ollie’s older so as well as all that, it’s an investment in the character of Ollie Carter too.

Bronze Member 3,044 872 Jun 13, 2019 2019-06-13T20:57 The main thing so-far I can praise this story for, besides giving a representation of autism is the truthfulness of Linda’s reaction and denial over Ollie. She didn’t accept that Johnny was gay when he came out while Mick was the supportive parent.

I feel we’ll have the same dynamic here as Ollie’s story develops likes this post 1 person likes this post 884 2,368 Jun 14, 2019 2019-06-14T00:50 Linda’s quietly become one of my favourite characters over the last few months and Kellie Bright always puts on good performances, I’m looking forward to this storyline.

I’m also liking Mick’s involvement now that he’s been off-screen for so long and doesn’t feel as tired. Bronze Member 1,596 1,175 Jun 14, 2019 2019-06-14T11:37 Has Ollie ever spoken?

  • Jun 14, 2019 2019-06-14T23:59 To be honest I am not excited by this storyline.
  • I think it’s just an issue-led story to make the Carters seem important and relevant again.
  • But they will barely talk about Ollie being autistic a year from now.
  • It will become a background issue when the Carters are on to their next big drama.

Also I find it a bit jokey that the show tries to make these stories seem more legitimate by saying “oh we’re consulting with this charity or this organization that helps people deal with this issue.” First of all, does anyone ever question why one charity or one organization is chosen over another? These choices tend to be political.

  • Also, why can’t it just be- we’re doing this story because one of our writers has an autistic child and knows this experience first hand.
  • They shouldn’t have to act like they’re saving the world bringing such-and-such charity into it, as if that will make the storyline automatically more legit.
  • It reeks of manipulation, trying to use goodwill to get people to watch a story that is really just an excuse to give Mick and Linda something to fret about and get all dramatic, until they move on to the next big crisis.

It feels phony. likes this post 1 person likes this post Bronze Member 1,479 817 Jun 15, 2019 2019-06-15T00:09 They often use charities to give out the right message.

I can’t comment on whether the charity choices are political or not, but there’s absolutely sense in why charities are involved from an information standpoint.

  1. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk But they also use the charities to push the story and engage audiences.
  2. I understand that.
  3. They need ratings to stay in business.
  4. But a lot of it still comes across as phony, and I think their choice of charity should always be questioned and analyzed.because there are other charities and organizations they could consult with.

What’s really phony about it is that a lot of these producers and writers have covered these stories before, either on other soaps or dramas, or on the show they’re currently working on, if they’ve been there for awhile. So they could certainly dust off their old notes, the last time they consulted with a charity.but of course, that doesn’t sound as good, in terms of publicity.

  1. The charities are usually political.
  2. But my earlier comment was that the producers and writers are political, and pick certain groups to consult with that support their own political views and what they are trying to accomplish with the stories.
  3. Some of it involves brainwashing and propaganda, to get the audience on side with certain social issues.

There was an excellent comment on DigitalSpy earlier today, where someone reminded the others that a documentary on Channel 4 would better address autism than a soap would, in terms of applying realism to the situation. And I agree, people shouldn’t come to soaps to be enlightened.

It’s phony and disingenuous for a soap to act like it’s going to enlighten viewers or save the world, when their primary concern is to ramp up drama and publicize the show for ratings. Now I do get that some viewers may like these kinds of stories. But there are many who do not and see them as being quite hollow.

  • Often what happens is that the shows change producers and writers, so there is very little forward continuity.

Plus they aren’t going to want to keep repeating the stuff with everyone being upset about Ollie having this affliction. So a year from now it will be mentioned less. It will still get mentioned two years from now. But after that, they will be on to other stories, and they will pretty much forget about this.then if someone (some viewer on a message board or Twitter) comes along and questions it, other people might say “oh Ollie outgrew it” and the writers will just keep him largely off screen so they don’t have to depict it.so nobody will know if his affliction worsened or got better.

  1. In a way they did this with Johnny’s homosexuality.
  2. The last year he was on the show, he hooked up once (when he slept with Ben on his birthday) then he acted like it was a mistake and never had gay sex again for the remainder of his time on the show.
  3. Then the writers just started decreasing his appearances, so if Johnny was being sexually active, his gayness was occurring off camera.

Then he just left the show. I am not equating homosexuality with autism, but I AM equating one issue-led story with another issue-led story. They tend to play these things up for a while, then forget about these things. It becomes out of sight out of mind.

  1. It’s still supposed to be part of the character, a defining characteristic.
  2. And the audience will remember it, but the writers don’t continue to reference it.
  3. We’ve certainly seen that with Johnny since he left the show.
  4. Mick and Linda never mention him, not even one reference that he’s got a new boyfriend and is happy doing whatever he’s doing off camera.

It’s all out of sight out of mind. That will happen with Ollie too, especially when the Carters have moved on to their next big family drama. : Walford Web-Autism story confirmed for Ollie Carter

  • Dean’s breakthrough performance was playing criminal ‘Jack Lynn’ in Law And Order (1978).
  • He went on to have roles in television shows such as Minder (1979); Shoestring (1979); Hammer House of Horror (1980) and The Chinese Detective (1981).
  • In 1980, he played Jeff “Fangio” Bateman in Coronation Street in 1982 Dean played the role of a police constable in Shine on Harvey Moon and, in 1983, he was cast as Sergeant Jack Wilding in Woodentop (the Pilot of ITV police drama The Bill ).

In-universe information

/td>

Sam Mitchell (also Butcher and Hunter ) is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders, The third member of the Mitchell family to appear on the soap, Sam was introduced as a 15-year-old schoolgirl in July 1990, originally played by Danniella Westbrook,

Westbrook quit in 1993, but Sam reappeared from 1995 to 1996 and from 1999 to 2000. In both stints, Sam was written out earlier than the producers intended due to off-screen controversies surrounding Westbrook. In early 2002, Sam was introduced for a fourth time, but the role was recast to Kim Medcalf, who stayed in the role until late 2005.

Diederick Santer later decided to reintroduce Sam for a brief stint in 2009 and opted to bring Westbrook back. Westbrook briefly reprised the role once again in 2016 for the funeral of Sam’s mother Peggy Mitchell ( Barbara Windsor ). In January 2022, it was announced that Sam would be returning to the show, this time played by Medcalf again.

Sam was initially portrayed as a young, naïve girl who had initially relied less upon her mother Peggy than her older brothers Phil ( Steve McFadden ) and Grant Mitchell ( Ross Kemp ), although she gradually evolved into becoming more flirty, headstrong, and charismatic, with a determination to be taken more seriously.

As a teenager, Sam falls in love and elopes with Ricky Butcher ( Sid Owen ). Later, she feuds with Den’s wife Chrissie Watts ( Tracy-Ann Oberman ) after she incriminates both Sam and Zoe Slater ( Michelle Ryan ) for Den’s murder, which led to Sam leaving the soap in 2005 to escape punishment for perverting the course of justice.

  1. Amongst various feuds with many characters, other storylines have seen her key involvement in Den Watts ‘ ( Leslie Grantham ) murder, as well as struggling to cope with motherhood after giving birth to Ricky Mitchell (Henri Charles/Frankie Day).
  2. Sam’s various stints on the soap have received a mixed reception with both Westbrook and Medcalf having received praise and criticism for their portrayals of the role.

Critics have written that across her stints, Sam has felt like various different characters due to differences in writing, storylines and the actress portraying her. However, viewers have preferred Medcalf in the role as they feel that she makes the character multi-layered.
