EastEnders viewers were left heartbroken during Friday's episode of the soap after Whitney Dean gave birth to her baby girl having undergone a termination to bring on early labour.

In recent weeks, Whitney, played by Shona McGarty and Zack Hudson, played by James Farrar, discovered their unborn baby had been diagnosed with Edwards Syndrome, a condition that means most babies won't survive long after birth.

After learning the devastating news, the pair had to decide whether or not to continue with the pregnancy. Whitney eventually decided to terminate her pregnancy and in Friday's episode (March 3), she went into early labour and delivered baby Peach with Zack by her side.

In scenes leading up to the birth, Whitney was supported by a nurse who assured they could do whatever they needed and could hold their baby once she was born.
