EastEnders spoilers have confirmed the harrowing domestic violence storyline that has plagued Chantelle Atkins is about to worsen in upcoming scenes.
Chantelle’s husband Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) appears a loving husband and father to all, but behind closed doors, he has tormented his wife for years.
Monday night’s episode revealed Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) is planning her escape, seeking a divorce lawyer to officially flee her marriage.
However, upcoming scenes will see Gray resort to stalking Chantelle in an effort to control her from afar, ending in tragedy.
Next week, Chantelle tells Gray she is heading on an impromptu family holiday, convincing him the trip was unplanned.
Later, she meets Kheerat (Jaskiranjit Singh Deol) and explains she is ending her marriage, only for Gray to grow more suspicious about his wife’s behaviour.
When she returns home, Gray reveals the children are staying with him – meaning her escape effort has been foiled.
Later, with Chantelle alone on the family holiday, Mitch (Roger Griffiths) starts to suspect something is wrong and digs for answers.
When she says she misses her kids, Mitch heads back to Walford to pick them up.
Unfortunately, when her concerned dad returns in the car, Gray has decided to come too, spoiling her plan to get away from him for good.
Later, Gray insists they return to Walford as a family, as Mitch realises his daughter is feeling fearful after reading her facial expression.
However, they set off in the car, only for horror to unfold once they return to their home.
Chantelle has no idea the true extent of evil her husband is capable of, as Gray unleashes his fury in devastating scenes.
Will he get away with it, or will Gray be exposed as the monster he truly is?
