EASTENDERS fans all have the same complaint about Whitney Dean after an explosive clash with Zack Hudson.
The latest episode of the BBC soap saw Zack finally told Whitney he is HIV Positive.
The on-off couple have been through a lot in recent weeks after the loss of their baby girl Peach, who had Edwards’ Syndrome.
Throughout their ordeal, Zack has been keeping his health diagnosis a secret, but he finally told Whitney during a heart to heart.
He said: “I love you Whit” and she replied: “Ok, so tell me what the problem is. What’s the problem?”
He revealed: “I’ve got HIV that’s the problem. I’m HIV positive.”
Whitney didn’t react well, furious that he hadn’t told her sooner and didn’t accept his explanation that he didn’t feel it was the right time to tell her when she was going through everything with Peach.
She questioned if she had HIV too, and was angry to learn Zack had spoken to doctors about hers and Peach’s blood tests but still hadn’t told her.
A number of EastEnders fans felt Whitney could have dealt with things better.
One wrote on Twitter: “He does the right thing and confesses he has HIV (good Job mate). Whit throws a wobbler, insults him and throws him out after saying he’s been lying to her.”
Another added: “Poor Zack. He hasn’t been lying to her, he’s just not previously told her but being as her & Peach’s bloods came back negative after they slept together and Zack never slept with her after and the fact that they were just friends, did she really have any right to know he is HIV positive?”
A third tweeted: “She’s getting on my nerves now yes she’s lost a baby but she’s making everything about herself Zack is grieving too, poor Zack.”
But others rushed to her defence, with one writing: “She’s only just been told and while dealing with losing there baby she was bound to lash out harshly to him.
“Also she does have a right to know especially if they continue the relationship as am sure you have to disclose that.”
Another tweeted: “Hmm I think she reacted as any person would – it’s a lot to take in and she’s already emotionally drained from losing her baby.
“I think she will settle down and they will become a couple eventually. It would be so nice to see Whitney have a bit of happiness after all she’s been through!”
EastEnders airs on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
