Tonight's EastEnders saw Lee Carter's friend Moose briefly reappear - and fans are predicting that a romance between him and Whitney may be on the cards in the not-so-distant future.
Hmmm. We bet Mick won't be too pleased.
During tonight's episode (March 20), Moose visited The Vic to pick up the last of Lee's things to take them to him in Dover.
While Mick wasn't exactly thrilled to see him, Moose only had eyes for Whitney as he made his play for her affections, telling her Lee has a new girlfriend in Dover before giving her his phone number and hinting that he's interested.
While Whitney may not have taken the hint, fans on Twitter certainly did.
In fact, a lot of them thought the pair would become an item some time soon:

Moose lol, Whitney would be well suited to him cos she's got a proper Moose Knuckle all of her own #eastenders- Bogs_Of_Justice (@BogsOfJustice) March 20, 2017
But this guy is Team Mick all the way:
#Eastenders Whitney doesn't want Moose she wants a bit of Mick!- ★★Marty★★ (@ScotsmanMarty) March 20, 2017
Whitney certainly hasn't been short of admirers since Lee left the soap last month.
The Queen Vic staffer has been growing closer to her father-in-law Mick Carter over recent weeks, after the pair shared a kiss when she was in hospital covering from the bus crash, prompting fans to think the two of them were set to get it on.
Nonetheless, a Mick/Whitney affair has yet to surface, so who knows?
Maybe Moose will have better luck.
Eastenders returns tomorrow night (March 21) at 7.30pm on BBC One.
