Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) decided to take Shirley Carter’s (Linda Henry) advice in EastEnders tonight (October 16) regarding his children Mackenzie and Mia.
In last night’s episode, Shirley was fuming upon learning that Gray had lashed out at Linda (Kellie Bright).
In an effort to prove that she does, in fact, step up when her family need her to, she headed round to No. 1 Albert Square to confront Gray over his abusive behaviour towards her daughter-in-law.
However, Shirley received quite the shock when she discovered that the solicitor was intent on killing his children as they slept upstairs.
She managed to persuade him against doing so, and in tonight’s episode, she woke up in No.1 — having spent the night there in an effort to keep an eye on him.
Gray apologised for what happened, but in spite of his apologies, Shirley remained adamant that the kids simply aren’t safe with him.
Therefore, she suggested that Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) and Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) look after Mackenzie and Mia for a while, as he sorts himself out.
Gray later decided to take Shirley’s advice, as he confirmed that Karen will be looking after the kids for some time.
He then proceeded to offer her some advice regarding her situation with Mick (Danny Dyer).
EastEnders continues Monday October 19 at 8:10pm on BBC One.
