EASTENDERS fans are convinced a show favourite character will “return from the dead” in an explosive Christmas Day storyline.
Serial killer Gray Atkins – played by actor Toby Alexander Smith in the BBC One soap – has so far got away with murdering his own wife Chantelle as well as barmaid Tina Carter and Kush Kazemi.
But viewers are adamant his crimes will come back to haunt him in true soap fashion saying one of his victims LIVED to tell the tale.
In an incredible end-of-year twist that would spark the downfall of Gray fans have predicted Tina survived the attack and has been waiting to return to expose him for what he did to her and Chantelle.
One viewer wrote: “I’m convinced Tina isn’t dead. Maybe she’ll return at Christmas. #EastEnders.”
Another tweeted: “RT if you think Tina Carter is coming back at Christmas.”
At the very least viewers think all his crimes will come to a head in an epic Christmas episode.
Another viewer said: “The Carters are going to find out about Tina at Christmas.”
Fans know that the walls are already closing in on Gray after his boss Laura Awowinka dropped the bombshell that she knows he’s an abuser.
Laura got Gray drunk in recent scenes so he would embarrass himself at a works drink by offering him a free bar.
Laura later spoke to Chelsea at Gray’s house, warning her that the lawyer abused Chantelle – and that he was probably looking for his next victim.
