EastEnders, Lily Slater, Whitney Dean
EastEnders fans were horrified by ‘vile’ comments from cruel Lily to grieving Whitney Dean which aired in last night’s episode of the soap.
Whitney attempted to talk some sense into 12-year-old Lily, who she found outside on the Square without a care in the world.
A furious Lily reacted with some choice words for Whitney.
Viewers were appalled by the teen’s words.

‘Cruel’ Lily explodes at grieving Whitney
Lily’s outburst came as Whitney told the teen that she needed to star looking after herself and her unborn child.
Whitney then complained to Stacey that she had seen Lily ‘outside, acting like a normal teenager.’ Lily took umbrage at the comment and exploded.
She lashed out at Whitney, telling her: “Just because your baby died, doesn’t mean mine will!”

“Lily, that was nasty what you said to Whitney. Think before you speak. You might be a kid but you know what’s right and wrong,” said another.
