Okay, spoilers are GO in this thread since there seem to be a fair few people who want to discuss them. The Whitney storyline mentioned in the EE thread is basically: Whitney runs away from home, somehow winds up as a prostitute, Jody Latham from Shameless is meant to be playing her pimp. Connor isn't involved if anyone's wondering. I'm sorry but this post is bullshit. Has the actress not had a break already? She's had 2 years of break from that storyline. And in that time all she's done is accumulate shag after shag and descend from being a decent character to an unbearable one. I think this could save Whitney as a character and it's totally fitting - a lot of abuse victims lose any sense of what they're worth and turn to either casual sex or prostitution. It's being done with Children In Need apparently so it should be carefully researched too.
