During one scene, Chantelle told Gray she "would never leave him" which left some viewers speculating about her exact meaning...

Writing on EastEnders Spoilers, News and Gossip Facebook group one said: "I would say that was a clue there tonight. I will never leave you means I will murder you though."

Another agreed, saying: "I thought the exact same, she's going to kill him!!!!"

A third added: "I think she's got a plan. Remember Little Mo and Trevor? It's only a matter of time..."

EastEnders viewers have watched in horror over the past year as Gray has repeatedly turned violent towards his long-suffering wife.

After punching his wife in the stomach, and ultimately causing her to lose her baby, Gray vowed to have therapy but fans weren't convinced he was committed to change.

Fed up of being scared of him, Chantelle has been growing in courage - but will she speak out before someone gets killed?

Long-term Easties fans will remember that Little Mo reached the end of her tether, and attacked her violent rapist husband Trevor with an iron.

EastEnders boss Kate Oates revealed that the Chantelle/Gray storyline is due to take a turn for the worse.

She said "We've got great stuff for Chantelle and Gray. That storyline will be continuing EastEnders' tradition of stories which explore really important issues. We're going to be pushing that story."

She added: "We've been building it quite gently very deliberately and building the sort of public - by which I mean the Square - the public perception of the kind of man Gray is and the kind of marriage that they have, so we'll be exploring that."
