Spoilers: EastEnders' Sonia working on the frontline amid coronavirus pandemic

Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) was been transferred to an intensive care unit in EastEnders amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The character has been working on the frontline during the crisis, and has received some much-needed support from Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty).

This new development was revealed during tonight’s episode (September 1) of Secrets From The Square.

Speaking about what’s ahead for Sonia, actress Natalie Cassidy told Stacey Dooley: ‘Sonia’s at the hospital.

‘I’ve just been told that Sonia has been at work every day, and was moved to an intensive care unit. She’s been on the front line.

‘It’s going to be so good, and we’ve just had that teased. You get all excited because we’ve not been at work. But the factory has still been running without us!

‘The juices are flowing, and I think it’s going to be really really exciting.’

As noted earlier, Whitney will have been a great support to Sonia during this difficult time.

Shona McGarty — who portrays Whitney in The BBC One soap — said: ‘Whitney and Sonia, they’ve become really close. Whitney has really supported Sonia through what’s been a really difficult time.’

Meanwhile, Whitney ended up volunteering at the hospital amid the pandemic.

Shona teased: ‘Whitney’s volunteered at the hospital with the children.

‘She’s got a lot of time for children, I think Whitney’s always wanted loads of children but never got them.
