The lawyer – who is played by actor Toby Alexander Smith in the BBC soap – flew into a rage following a family party after he felt left out and he started a fight about her using the joint account.
The manipulative brute later pleaded with her to forgive him and insisted it was all her fault.
Chantelle – played by Jessica Plummer – decided to forgive him before heading to the bathroom to do a pregnancy test, which comes out positive.
And now fans of the soap believe that Gray is set to have his comeuppance in the coming months and will be murdered in a new storyline.

One viewer shared on Twitter: “I can see Chantelle going for Gray with a knife sooner or later.”
“Gray better be killed off during the Christmas special episodes,” another shared.
A third shared: “There’s a funeral filmed for November already, Ben and Jay have been photographed outside the hearse… Bobby is also scheduled to kill in the coming weeks…”

“I’m gonna throw my #EastEnders Xmas storyline prediction out there,but I reckon Gray gets killed off,” another posted. “Possibly by Chantelle but maybe even Mitch.”
EastEnders fans were left stunned in July when Gray showed his true colours and violently attacked his wife, making it clear this wasn’t the first time this had happened.
The solicitor had presented the image of a mild-mannered dream husband in public, but in shocking scenes it became clear Gray was a cruel physical and mental abuser of his wife.

The show’s boss Kate Oates, recently revealed there is a lot more to come in this powerful storyline.
She said: “Chantelle and Gray’s domestic abuse story has built quite gently, but as it continues we’ll be pushing it.
“We’ve deliberately built this public perception of who Gray is and the kind of marriage they have. There’s great stuff coming up.”
