EastEnders spoilers: Chantelle Atkins punished as abusive Gray uncovers her work lies
Chantelle Atkins (played by Jessica Plummer) is pregnant and under Gray Atkins’ (Toby Alexander Smith) orders to stay rested on EastEnders. However, when the opportunity comes through for her to go back to work, she is delighted.
The expectant mother is clearly loving being back at work but it is without a doubt short-lived.
Gray chases a girl who stole from Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) stall and ends up spotting his wife in the salon.
Later on in the day, Chantelle heads to The Vic and is surprised to see her friends and family gathered round.
Her controlling husband announces she is pregnant, and it’s obvious he isn’t happy she went back to work.

Gray gets angry very easily and it’s clear he will punish his wife when they get home.
Will Chantelle be ok after this fresh ordeal?
The abuse storyline has been playing out for months, yet soap boss Kate Oates thinks there’s chance for Gray to turn a corner.
She told The Sun: “I know there’s been a little bit of conversation about the fact that EastEnders always make their be-suited educated characters villains and it’s so crucial to his character because he works in the law fighting for the little guy.
“That confuses Chantelle because he’s got a social conscience so he’s the opposite of her father who was completely flaky and couldn’t hold down a job as a guy who really does hold down a job.
“Plus the fact that he’s part of this aspirational lifestyle. Gray has got a lot of redeeming qualities.”
Elsewhere on Albert Square, Ben Mitchell’s (Max Bowden) plan for revenge spirals even further out of control.
He has been toying with Martin Fowler (James Bye) for the past couple of weeks but it seems his need for revenge spirals out of control.
