But after lockdown, Chantelle decided to take her children and leave Gray.

There is a striptease – and Karen’s involved.

However the solicitor learnt of Chantelle’s plans and she told him she wasn’t leave. But when he caught her trying to contact Kheerat, who planned to help her flee, he pushed her over.

Chantelle fell onto a knife in the dishwasher that was facing upwards. But instead of getting help immediately, Gray walked around the Square to give himself an alibi.
