EastEnders serial killer Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) takes drastic action next week to make sure Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) stays within his control.

Aspiring singer Whitney appeals to music agent Jen Glover (Kate Robbins) but is told she had her chance after the previous drama.

Upset she blew it, Whitney bumps into Gray who asks her for dinner but Whitney says no, she still thinks about Kush all the time.

Posing as Whitney’s manager, Gray tries to get Jen to put Whitney on the line-up for her entertainment industry showcase.

Later, Whitney tells Gray that Jen changed her mind, knowing that he is the reason for it.

As Whitney softens towards Gray, he convinces her to give them a go but to take it slow.

Gray supports Whitney at rehearsals but when Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) appears, working behind the bar, things are awkward between herself and Gray.

After rehearsal, Jen offers Whitney an opportunity on a cruise ship, leaving Gray worried he’ll lose her.

He tries to talk Whitney out of it to no avail so he takes matters into his own hands.

Is Whitney set to become his next victim?

Fans of the BBC One soap will know that Gray is responsible for the deaths of his wife Chantelle Atkins, Tina Carter and Kush Kazemi.

The scheming solicitor made a huge mistake during Friday's episode as the serial drama revisited Chantelle's murder.

He delved deep into his troubled past when Whitney accompanied him to visit his poorly father in hospice.

Whitney quickly left the room, and this would turn out to be good for Gray because his reunion with his father wouldn't be a happy one.

His father reminded him of how the lawyer struggled to control his violent urges as a child and he'd even attacked his mum, then sent chills up Gray's spine by mentioning Chantelle's death.

"You still have your anger issues, don't you?" his father asked, before revealing: "I saw it online yesterday, that your wife, that Chantelle Atkins, died a year ago in a domestic accident.

"I am scared for you. I am scared of what you will do, Gray. How did Chantelle die?"

Gray showed his terror by vaguely threatening to murder his own father unless he dropped his questions, leaving his dad horrified at what his son had become.

"I hope you find peace, and it hope it comes quickly," Gray warned.

In the aftermath of the tense reunion, Gray managed to share a clinch with Whitney when they were reunited. However, the killer's troubles were far from over.

Once Whitney was gone, Gray made a very risky decision because he was quickly running out cash – he decided to use Tina Carter's bank card!

Will Gray's foolish decision be the beginning of the end for him?
