EastEnders SPOILER: Chantelle and Karen clash

It was bound to happen eventually

Chantelle and the rest of the Atkins family move into their new home on Albert Square next week… but it doesn’t take long for Karen to rub her daughter up the wrong way.

EastEnders fans will know that Chantelle found herself in hot water with Kim Fox after husband Gray surprised her by buying Number 1 Albert Square for them and their two kids to move into.

Despite being thrilled that she was about to move into the biggest house on the Square, Chantelle unwittingly put her foot in it with co-worker Kim when she was rude about the decor, not realising that Kim is the one who lived there last.

As Chantelle takes control of the move, she is fuming when her mum meddles and starts trying to sell some fo Kim’s belongings.

Chantelle can’t believe that her mum would stoop so low and the pair fight… especially when Chantelle spots the portrait of Kim, Vincent and Pearl wearing togas in the skip.

The hairdresser knows that seeing her family photo in the skip isn’t going to go down well with Kim, but as Chantelle tries to retrieve it from being dumped, Kim arrives and catches her red handed.

The pair fight and Chantelle is horrified when Kim and Karen start having a slanging match in the middle of the Square.
