Chantelle was understandably upset with her husband, and proceeded to tell him that it wasn’t his place to disclose such data.
A fuming Gray then made a beeline for his spouse — the aggression evident in his face — however Chantelle pleaded with him to cease — reminding him about her being pregnant. Instead of taking his anger out on her, Gray punched the close by worktop, and made it clear that he would by no means harm their unborn youngster, earlier than storming out.
Tonight’s episode noticed Chantelle change into nervous, as Gray hadn’t returned residence on the night time in query. However, he did so the following day, and Chantelle voiced her issues about the place he was and what had occurred the earlier night time. Gray was fast to ease her worries, telling her that he merely stayed the night time at work, earlier than the pair made up as soon as extra.
However, Gray’s issues had been removed from over as, later in the episode, two cops — considered one of whom was Jack (Scott Maslen) — arrived on his doorstep.
