Back at home, Gray continues to control his wife and installs a tracking app on to her phone before taking her credit card.
Chantelle later meets up with her boss Kheerat to ask if he can lend her money, unaware he has his own financial troubles.
Later Kheerat gives Chantelle as much money as he can. He pushes her asking what she needs it for and why Gray can’t help. Knowing she can’t hide it, she tells Kheerat it’s for a divorce.
He’s taken aback but promises to help her. The two of them share a moment, however Kheerat’s money troubles have just gone from bad to worse.

EastEnders: Toby-Alexander Smith on Gray
Recently Toby-Alexander Smith, who plays Gray, appeared on EastEnders: Secrets From The Square with Jessica Plummer, who plays Chantelle.
Speaking to Stacey Dooley about Gray in lockdown, he said: “Gray’s been furloughed which is definitely a dent to his ego.
“So of course naturally that brings a trigger for Gray to get frustrated with Chantelle, therefore I imagine he’s probably pretty much at boiling point.”
EastEnders episodes return to BBC One at 8.05pm on Monday 7th September.
