Eastenders Spoilers – Abuse Intensifies During Lockdown
When it comes to domestic violence, statistics repeatedly indicate that abuse gets worse and more frequent during lockdown situations. In addition to this, Gray’s ego takes a hit once again due to his career. The pandemic caused him to be furloughed and the actor confirmed on Secrets From the Square that it causes a huge dent to Gray’s ego. That is a trigger for the character and the target of his rage will once again be Chantelle.
“Gray’s been furloughed, which is definitely a dent to his ego. So of course, naturally, that brings a trigger for Gray, to get frustrated with Chantelle. Therefore, I imagine he’s pretty much at boiling point.”
