Chantelle Atkins (played by Jessica Plummer) and Gray Atkins (Toby Alexander-Smith) have just returned from their second honeymoon on EastEnders after renewing their vows following the businessman’s promise he’ll get a hold on his temper. However, Gray soon reverted back to past behaviour on the BBC soap and attacked Chantelle when he grew jealous but the husband’s violent secret may be exposed very soon.
Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) never particularly warmed to Gray but was overjoyed when her daughter revealed her plans to renew her wedding vows.
However, the matriarch has no idea Gray has been abusing her daughter despite his numerous reassurances he’ll change.
In tonight’s episode of the BBC soap (January 7), Chantelle and Gray returned from their holiday.
Determined to expand their family, Gray bought Chantelle a pregnancy trip but on his travels spotted his wife chatting to Jags Panesar (Amar Adita).

Gray quizzed his wife on the encounter but he wasn’t satisfied with her explanation that she was catching up with an old friend.
When Chantelle confirmed she wasn’t pregnant, Gray’s temper flared and he pushed her up against a wall demanding to know why she wasn’t disappointed at the news.
Chantelle tried to escape but Gray tightened his grip breaking her wrist in the process.
As the pair got ready to leave for the hospital, Karen walked in and quizzed her daughter on the injury.
