Spoilers: Kheerat and Mitch join forces to expose killer Gray in EastEnders?

Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) is determined to expose the truth about Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) in EastEnders, and therefore he’s set out to join forces with Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths).

Kheerat was left distraught when he discovered that Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) had been killed.

Speaking about Kheerat’s feelings regarding the young woman’s death, actor Jaz Deol said: ‘It’s the end of a dream! It’s awful even talking about it, because he was so ready to leave and start a new life with her and the kids.

‘Then at the last minute he gets that voicemail calling it off and the next morning he discovers she’s dead – words can’t describe that moment. That’s what I wanted to play in those scenes – losing someone or something that  changes you forever. I wanted to find that within myself to play those scenes.’

In spite of Chantelle’s death appearing to be a tragic accident to those on the outside, Kheerat reckons Gray played a part in her demise.

After a showdown ensued between he and Gray earlier this week, Kheerat set out to find out what really happened.

Jaz continued: ‘I think he knew in his gut instinct that something wasn’t right there. In his mind he cannot dispute that feeling and it haunts him to this day. Maybe even the rest of his life.

‘I mean, think about it, Kheerat was about to sacrifice everything to run away with Chantelle and it was cut so short that there can only be one explanation for it.

‘The tragedy is he just doesn’t have the evidence to prove it. He’s an incredibly logical man that is battling the irrationality and impulsiveness of his grief. He knows he can’t act on his anger – Gray is a solicitor by trade so he knows how to exploit the legal system better than anyone else.’

Kheerat has found himself in the company of Mitch on several occasions over the past couple of episodes, and he informed the grieving father of his suspicions about Gray.

Jaz continued: ‘He needs an ally because he’s well aware Gray is Albert Square’s knight in shining armor.

‘After all he’s helping Whitney in her ongoing trial so how could he possibly be Chantelle’s murderer? If anything, the odds are stacked against Kheerat for even considering it.


‘Knowing Mitch’s history with Gray, Kheerat is playing on the heartstrings of a man that wasn’t able to protect his baby girl because he couldn’t protect Chantelle either. It’s something that they can both connect with. That feeling of helplessness.’

With Mitch having had his suspicions about Gray in the past, one can’t help but wonder if he will form an alliance with Kheerat, as they plot to expose the solicitor for the abuser and murderer that he is?
