EastEnders duo Shona McGarty and James Farrar have reached out to fans on social media amid the heart-wrenching Whitney Dean and Zack Hudson storyline.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (March 7), McGarty uploaded a powerful video featuring herself and Farrar extending their thanks to everyone who worked on the drama behind the scenes, and to those who keep tuning in on BBC One.
