Chantelle Atkins (played by Jessica Plummer) paid the ultimate price for telling abusive Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) she planned to leave him in harrowing scenes on EastEnders. The mum-of-two was left to die on the kitchen floor while Gray ensured he had an alibi for his wife’s death. But, could his sinister plan to evade suspicions lead to his downfall? 

In tonight’s instalment, Gray confronted Chantelle over her secret phone conversation with Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol).

The hairdresser told her husband she planned to leave him but was forced to lie when he threatened to harm their children. 

Chantelle attempted to appease her abusive husband but was caught desperately trying to contact Kheerat. 

However, the brave mum stood up to Gray and told him she didn’t love him anymore.

Chantelle said: “I can’t do this another minute longer I can’t stomach it.

“You can cancel my bank card, you can push me around, you can beat me black and blue but you will never win because I don’t love you anymore.

“I lost your baby and I was glad. Look at you what woman would want to be with a man like you.

“Weak, pathetic the only mistake I ever made was staying this long, not speaking up and telling everyone the truth.”

“I kept my mouth shut because I thought that’s what a good wife did,” she continued. 

“I didn’t want any of this to be true so I stayed silent. I kept quiet. Well, not anymore.

“I am leaving, I am taking my children and I am walking out that door and if you try and stop me I will start screaming and I won’t stop.”

Gray exclaimed: “You’re not going anywhere ever, your place is here with me.”

The solicitor pushed his wife so hard she fell backwards and crashed into an open dishwasher. 

Chantelle was paralysed and begged her husband for help but he calmly tidied up evidence his wife planned on leaving him.

Mia and Mackenzie called out for their mum but Gray rushed upstairs and put them back to bed. 

Could his insistence on putting them to bed despite them asking for Chantelle lead to his downfall? 

Gray then left Number One and made his way to the Minute Mart to buy a glass bottle of milk.

Sukki Panesar (Balvinder Patel) questioned why he didn’t want a carton but Gray brushed off her questions.

EastEnders viewers later discovered Gray’s choice of bottle was part of his cover-up plan as he smashed it on the floor to make it seem like he was shocked to see Chantelle had been hurt.

Gray made sure several Walford residents saw him roaming the Square but will his attempts to secure an alibi confirm his guilt to the police?
