The build-up to Chantelle’s death will be featured in EastEnders all this week.
Her final scenes will then air on Friday, September 18, on BBC One with her death being shown in the dramatic episode.
Executive producer Jon Sen previously said: “Chantelle’s story is such an important one to tell accurately and upon both characters’ inception we planned her tragic ending with the intention of embedding the stark reality of domestic abuse at the heart of the Atkins family.”
For those affected by the storyline, there are many different organisations which can help you.
The National Domestic Abuse Helpline is a freephone 24-hour helpline which provides advice and support to women – contact them on 0808 2000 247.
While the Respect Men’s Advice Line is a confidential helpline for all men experiencing domestic violence by a current or ex-partner. Call them on 0808 8010327.
EastEnders is on four nights a week on BBC One.
