Chantelle was brutally murdered as the soap's domestic abuse storyline came to a harrowing end.
Chantelle had endured months of abuse at the hands of Gray, during which he even broke her arm and manipulated her into apologising.
But after a tortuous lockdown, Chantelle finally decided to flee – and run away with Kheerat and the children.
But viewers watched Gray thwart Chantelle’s plan to flee on a family holiday to Southend when he suspected her plans and managed to keep the children at home with him.
The abusive husband then dragged Chantelle and the kids home, where he eventually ended up killing his wife when she blurted out that she’s leaving him.
Gray then violently pushed her over and impaled her on an upturned knife in the dishwasher as she tried to escape.
Soap fans will have to tune in to see if Gray will finally get him comeuppance.
