Spoilers: Shirley has a shock offer for killer Gray in EastEnders

When it comes to character judgement, Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) isn’t always the top of the class – and that naivety rears its head again in EastEnders as she continues to bond with killer and abuser Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith).

In the wake of Chantelle’s death, Gray has hit rock bottom but what Shirley doesn’t know is that is partly due to his guilt of murdering her at the end of a marriage and life he made a nightmare for his wife.

Shirley intervened when she saw that Gray was suffering – and having told the children that they would all soon join their mother, he planned to gas himself and them to death.

Shirley managed to stop him and has since become an ally of Gray’s, helping him back on his feet and regain composure. Mick (Danny Dyer) has been mocking of Shirley for her friendship with Gray while fans are worrying that she may fall victim to Gray’s controlling ways and angry temper.

That said, Shirley feels an urge to help Gray and so she remains defensive about the relationship and closeness they are building.

And when Gray then takes action that leaves Shirley seriously impressed, she is struck with an idea – he would be an asset to the dodgy Mitchell family business.

As she makes an offer that he joins their ranks, how will Gray respond? And how will Phil (Steve McFadden) feel about having him involved?
