Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) is a monster living in plain sight in EastEnders as he has the audacity to act as a friend to Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) despite hiding the horrific murder of her sister Tina.
After Tina discovered the horrific truth that Gray abused and killed his wife Chantelle, she was unable to escape as he launched a violent and fatal attack.
As far as Shirley knows, Tina is on the run as the court hearing for the assault on Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) looms – and Gray is happy to let her believe that not only is this the case but he was the one who went an extra mile to ‘save her’.
Tonight, he was as vile as ever as Shirley was upset and worried not to have heard from Tina. She opened up to Gray and told him that she would feel better if Tina just sent her a message.
Without even the remotest hints of remorse, Gray assured Shirley that Tina is ‘ballsy’ and can take care of herself – while knowing all along that Shirley will never see her alive again.
And he didn’t even crack when Shirley thanked him for everything and for looking after her family.
With Gray keeping up the act, viewers are more and more horrified by the evil mask he wears.
And it’s not just Gray doing Tina wrong – as Shirley was left fuming with Sharon (Letitia Dean) for suggesting that Tina is guilty of attacking Ian.
Of course, Sharon knows very differently as she knows full well who is responsible for that one!
