As fans of EastEnders will know, Tyler Moon is in love with Whitney Dean, however, though she clearly has feelings for him too, she’s dating Fatboy Chubb…
However, when troublemaker Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater) lies to Tyler by telling him that Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) intends to propose to Whitney (Shona McGarty) on Valentine’s Day, Tyler decides he must tell Whitney how he feels before it’s too late.
But of course, Fatboy has no intention of proposing, so Tyler’s “I love you” confession leaves Whitney utterly confused. But will she go with her heart and ditch Fatboy for Tyler? Or will she do the sensible thing and stay with the lovely Fats?
Well, according to Tony Discipline – who’s been talking to Soaplife about his character’s love for Whitney – she chooses Fatboy. For now, at any rate…
Of his character’s Valentine’s Day confession to Whitney, Tony explained, “He thinks, ‘I can’t just put aside my feelings’.
“He’s in love with her. The initial attraction was that she gave him nothing at all – she punched him to start with.
“Now he’s fallen in love with her as a person – he knows she’s really kind and caring. She’s the one for him.”
And when asked, “Why hasn’t he told her?” Tony said, “Because he has this whole bromance thing going on with Fat Boy.
“He’s respecting this, but he’s got to the point where his feelings for Whitney are just too strong.
“Lucy starts meddling and tells Tyler that Fat Boy is going to propose to Whitney on Valentine’s Day. They’re at R&R and Tyler feels he has to reveal his feelings for her.
“[But] Whitney tells him it’s too late. He’s really hurt. He knows what he feels about Whitney and he knows he wants to be there for her, but he can’t put it into the right words.
“This is all new to Tyler. He’s never found a girl that he really wants to be with like this.”
However, if Tyler and Whitney ever do get together, Tony hopes it’ll be for keeps.
He said, “Once they finally get together and everyone’s accepted it for what it is and they’re left alone, I think they could go really far…
”They would have a big East End wedding. Maybe they’d get Tyler’s dad Eddie back from Spain.”
I’d love to see Eddie back, but I really want Whitney to stay with Fatboy. He’s been so hurt in the past bless him. But there again, maybe she should leave him and let him find someone who really appreciates him!
