There are more secrets to be revealed...

Next week's EastEnders sees Kheerat Panesar make a shock confession to Mitch Baker in the wake of Chantelle Atkins' tragic death.

Last night EastEnders fans were left sickened after Gray (Toby-Alexander Smith) shoved Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) backwards onto a knife sticking out of the dishwasher, before then leaving her to die.

Fans were horrified as Gray left his wife barely clinging on to life, and headed out into the Square to find himself an alibi rather than calling an ambulance.

EastEnders fans will know that Chantelle had turned to Kheerat to help her escape her toxic marriage.

And while Chantelle didn't actually spell out the fact she was living in an abusive relationship, Kheerat knew there was more to her decision to leave Gray than she was letting on.

As everyone tries to understand how Chantelle died, devastated Mitch goes to see Kheerat after realising there is some tension between him and Gray.

As Mitch struggles to get his head around the fact Chantelle had kept something so huge from him, Kheerat the reveals another bombshell.
