Viewers of EastEnders have branded Gray Atkins a liar, after the abusive solicitor told Chantelle he’d started attending therapy sessions.
Fans of the BBC soap have watched in helpless horror as he’s launched numerous vicious attacks on his wife – even punching her in the stomach moments before a pregnancy test confirmed she was expecting.
After a nurse noticed Chantelle’s suspicious bruises and handed her the phone number for a domestic abuse helpline, Chantelle threatened to leave Gray – but he promised her he would change his disgusting ways.
The father-of-two told his wife he would attend therapy in a bid to conquer his demons.
On Thursday (September 26), Gray told Chantelle he’d come back from his first session – but fans weren’t convinced.
On his return, Chantelle carefully asked him what it had been like, to which he replied: “I don’t want to talk about it.”
After a pause he added: “But it’s good, I need to do this. I need to do this.
“I am never going to lay an angry finger on you again, I promise.”
But those watching from home didn’t trust his words, and are adamant he’s not telling the truth.
One wrote: “I don’t believe he went. He won’t change. He will get worse.”
Another said: “Gray, I don’t believe you.”
A third agreed, typing: “Yeah I don’t trust him! Don’t think he went tonight!”
I don’t believe he went. He won’t change. He will get worse.

Gray may not lay a finger on Chantelle as he says. Physical abuse is not the only form of abuse. He no more went to counselling I did. He continues to seriously grate on my nerves #EastEnders

On the EastEnders spoilers news and gossip Facebook page, one suspicious fan said: “A leopard never changes his spots. He’s a liar.”
“He’s lying and didn’t go,” said one more. “He didn’t seem at all upset.”
Plenty of EastEnders fans fear for Chantelle and her unborn baby, with many predicting one of Gray’s physical attacks will result in Chantelle losing her little one.
Some even fear the worst, and predict Gray will murder Chantelle. Or will Chantelle’s mum Karen Taylor kill him first?
