EastEnders deny McGarty 'quit' claims

It looks like Shona McGarty won't be leaving Albert Square anytime soon as Eastenders bosses have dismissed claims that she is quitting the hit TV soap.

Earlier this week, it was indicated that the actress wants a break from her role as Whitney Dean to pursue a singing career.

The rumour mill was sent into overdrive when McGarty told the Daily Star newspaper: "I love Motown music and singing has always been a passion of mine. It's a real dilemma as I love acting but I also want to sing. I want to do something with music."

However, in a recent interview with Digital Spy an Eastenders representative confirmed that McGarty won't be departing the show anytime soon saying: "There is absolutely no truth in the report that Shona has quit EastEnders."

McGarty has been playing Whitney since 2008.
