EastEnders viewers have predicted an explosive affair for Gray Atkins and Whitney Dean.
Over the last few weeks, Gray has been representing Whitney, who is due to go to court for the murder of Leo King, and it’s been obvious there’s an admiration between the pair.
In this week’s EastEnders, Whitney was confronted by Leo’s mother Michaela, who wanted to know exactly how her son died.
Feeling guilty, Whitney told Michaela the truth. But she quickly turned on Whitney, branding her a “murderer.”
Fortunately for Whitney, Gray and Ruby stepped in and gave Michaela some home truths about her stalker son.
In last night’s episode (Tuesday, April 14) Gray told Whitney that Michaela knows how Leo died as she’s been helping the police and the prosecution.
And Michaela soon came back for round two. As she walked into the pub yelling at Whitney, Gray grabbed Michaela and gave her a stern warning.
He told her to keep away from Whitney, and then said that Michaela’s the only person mourning Leo’s death.
As Gray sprang into protective mode, Gray’s wife Chantelle seemed on edge by her husband’s temper.
Viewers know Chantelle is more than aware of Gray’s awful temper as he beats her when he’s angry, but was there something more to Chantelle’s concern?
When Whitney and Gray exchanged a glance, it left fans convinced the two are going to have an an affair.

Whitney and Grey affair. She’s vulnerable, seeking support and affirmation. He’s dark and violent with a
charismatic veneer . He can spot a vulnerable woman #eastenders
