EastEnders viewers in tears as Whitney and Zack say lose baby in harrowing scenes



EastEnders viewers were emotional after witnessing the harrowing scenes of Whitney and Zack losing their baby.

In Friday evening's episode, Whitney gave birth to her baby girl, having undergone a termination to activate early labour.

Whitney, who is played by Shona McGarty, and Zack, who is played James Farrar, recently found out their unborn daughter had Edwards' syndrome. Most babies with the condition will die before or shortly after they are born, according to the NHS.

After receiving the devastating news this week, Whitney made the heartbreaking decision to have a termination, after Zack told Whitney there was "no right choice".

In heartbreaking scenes which aired tonight, Whitney was screaming in pain after taking medication to begin the termination.

Zack and a nurse supported her as she went through the heartbreaking process.

Following the tragic birth, Whitney was in tears as she begged to hold her baby.

"Shona McGarty and James Farrar have handled this storyline so brilliantly and sensitively. Beautiful performances. Utterly heartbreaking to watch."

Another added: "The actors who play Whitney and Zack have done an incredible job with this storyline, so raw and heartbreaking,' wrote another viewer."

When Whitney received the diagnosis, actress Shona McGarty explained how it was her character's "worst nightmare".

"This is Whitney's worst nightmare. She's been doing a lot of research online and they always say you shouldn't search stuff, but obviously, Whitney just can't help it. I'm sure we could all put ourselves in that position and we'd probably do the same," she said.
