EASTENDERS fans will see a darker side to hunky legal eagle Gray Atkins tonight as he’s beaten in the Walford 10k by father-in-law Mitch Baker.
Gray has been training alongside Mick Carter, who’s running the race to raise money for his son Ollie’s private autism assessment.
Being fit and young, EastEnders newbie Gray – played by Toby-Alexander Smith – thinks he’s in with a pretty good chance of winning the race, but he’s left stunned when Mitch speeds past him and Bex Fowler to take first place.
Later, Mitch eventually admits that he cheated, but while everyone else finds this hilarious, Gray is far from impressed and ends up storming out, annoyed at his father-in-law.
Has gorgeous Gray accidentally let his mask slip?
Viewers of the BBC One soap have been speculating for months that lawyer Gray is hiding a dark secret.
Initially they thought he would turn out to be Ben Mitchell’s secret lover. That theory was knocked on the head recently when it was revealed to be Callum Highway.
Other fans think that Gray is secretly emotionally abusing his wife Chantelle – who is mother to his two daughters McKenzie and Mia – in a similar way to what Geoff Metcalfe is doing to Yasmeen Nazie in Coronation Street.
They’ve been looking out for red flag behaviour in the way he interacts with his wife.
One fan began: "When are we going to see Chantelle and Gray alone together?! There better not be a domestic violence story for those two. I don't want to see another character abused on this show for at least another year, especially another woman."
While another added: "Chantelle looks terrified every time Gray talks #Eastenders."
