EastEnders actress Shone McGarty to be allowed to return to work after 4 week suspension!
McGarty, who plays troubled Whitney Dean in the soap, was suspended four weeks ago by new producer, Lorraine Newman, after repeatedly being late on set.
The actress, who is dating co-star Matt Lapinskas in real life, “apologised for her lack of professionalism” to the new executive producer, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
At the time of her suspension, a BBC spokesperson confirmed the decision, telling Digital Spy: “Shona has been suspended for repeatedly being late.”
Lapinskas and McGarty recently made headlines after being thrown out of an Asda supermarket for inappropriate behaviour in the dairy aisle!
