Although he has gone to counselling to help control his anger, it clearly hasn’t worked.
In last night’s episode (Thursday, March 12 2020), the solicitor beat his wife thinking she had told her dad Mitch that he lost his job at the solicitors firm.
However viewers know Mitch pieced it together himself after discovering Gray had been to a hotel in town during work hours.
Gray beat Chantelle to the point she struggled to walk and the soap has now encouraged viewers to show its support for domestic abuse survivors.
On its social media, Easties posted a picture of Chantelle actress Jessica Plummer holding up her hand with “spEEkout #EastEnders” written on.
The EastEnders account said: “Show your support for survivors of domestic abuse. Please share you #spEEkout picture with us at #EastEnders. Stand with Chantelle.”
They also included a link to Action Line, which offers information and support.
