Who is Chantelle Atkins in EastEnders and how is she related to the Taylors?

Things are further complicated when Chantelle proves popular with new customer Gray – who gives her a generous tip for her work.

Given EastEnders has already revealed that Gray (Toby Alexander-Smith) is her husband – a solicitor with a job in the City Of London – is it all just a scheme?

No doubt all will become clear. And we can also expect a few feathers ruffled in the Taylor family, especially as it quickly becomes clear things aren’t too good between her and Karen.

However Chantelle is fiercely protective of her siblings, which could be good news for Keanu in his ongoing involvement with Phil Mitchell.

And her family is set to join her in Walford, with Gray also coming along as well as their children Mia and Mackenzie.

We sense there could be drama ahead.

Who is Chantelle Atkins played by?

Chantelle is played by Jessica Plummer, who is a former member of the girl band Neon Jungle (which also featured former X Factor finalist Shereen Cutkelvin).

The 26-year-old has said of joining the soap: ‘Just like the majority of the UK, I grew up watching EastEnders.

‘It’s an absolute honour to be joining the cast with all my childhood favourites…Rickaaaaaaaay.’

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays on BBC One at 8pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
