Chelsea Fox seems completely unfazed by the fact she was arrested for being in possession of stolen goods and Sheree Trueman can’t believe she’s being so casual about it!
When Chelsea insists that Gray Atkins is her solicitor and she has confidence that he’ll sort things out for her, there’s also the not so small question of paying for his services…
Chelsea has that sorted too and insists as long as she keeps flirting with him, she’s sure he’ll waive his fee.
Chelsea arranges to meet Gray for a drink to talk through the case - and attempt to wind him round her little finger. When Karen Taylor and Mitch Baker - the parents of Gray’s late wife Chantelle Atkins - see the two together they are surprised.
Chelsea may be used to getting her own way where men are concerned, but she has no idea that Gray was an abuser and a murderer! Is she getting herself into something she won’t be able to handle?
