EASTENDERS fans were left terrified tonight that Chantelle Atkins was about to be murdered by violent husband Grey.
Viewers tonight saw her stand up for herself, going out on the town and telling him: “Until you sort yourself out, there is no way we’re having another baby.”
However, as she walked out into the Square, he watched her menacingly through the window.
One tweeted: “God I get such a feeling Chantelle is gonna be killed.”
Another predicted: “Hear it here first – Christmas story line – Phil finds out its Keanue’s baby and Grey kills Chantelle.”
Chantelle has been stuck in a violent marriage to Gray and is now starting to find strenght and stand up for herself.
Viewers at home couldn’t be happier, and took to Twitter to make their feelings known.
EastEnders boss Kate Oates recently has revealed that the storyline between the married couple is due to get even worse as they try to explore the important issues highlighted between the characters.
She told Metro: “We’ve got great stuff for Chantelle and Gray. That storyline will be continuing EastEnders’ tradition of stories which explore really important issues. We’re going to be pushing that story.”
The television producer added: “We’ve been building it quite gently very deliberately and building the sort of public — by which I mean the Square — the public perception of the kind of man Gray is and the kind of marriage that they have, so we’ll be exploring that.”
The latest incident involving the pair has slowly been building up to this point after Chantelle returned to the square back in March.
Chantelle is the daughter of Mitch and Karen Taylor, making her Keegan Baker’s full sister and half sister to Karen’s other kids, Bernadette, Keanu, Chatham and Riley.
In her time away from the square she met her abusive husband and the pair have had two daughters together – Mia and MacKenzie.
There has already been speculation between fans as to where the storyline is going to go and some believe that Gray is set to have his comeuppance in the coming months and could even end up being murdered.
One viewer shared on Twitter: “I can see Chantelle going for Gray with a knife sooner or later.”
“Gray better be killed off during the Christmas special episodes,” another shared.
A third wrote: “There’s a funeral filmed for November already, Ben and Jay have been photographed outside the hearse… Bobby is also scheduled to kill in the coming weeks…”
