EastEnders' Jessica Plummer wants Chantelle Atkin's hunky husband Gray to have an affair with Ben Mitchell

EASTENDERS star Jessica Plummer has revealed she would love her hunky on-screen husband Gray to have an affair with Ben Mitchell.
Viewers have become convinced Ben is secretly bedding the hunky solicitor after spotting him texting a mystery man called Pecs Guy about their passionate romp the night before, and now actress Jessica has revealed she would be all for it.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online’s Soap Bubble for her first interview since joining the soap as Karen Taylor’s daughter Chantelle, Jessica said: “Oh my God that would be awesome.
“She is quite the people pleaser, but he is her husband so how would you feel?
“Well I’m not sure about Chantelle, but like Jessica thinks that awesome, if the writers haven’t already thought of that, they should maybe consider it.”
The actress – who shot to fame in girl group Neon Jungle – is excited to play out more drama for the on-screen couple, even if it means Gray playing away.

“It is EastEnders, there’s going to be drama, there’s going to be something or things that come up.
“I get given my script and turn up on the day and do as I’m told. The things and theories people have come up with are certainly entertaining to read online.”
She added: “Yeah i mean I’m not going to lie, i do read and search hashtag eastenders, some of the things are wild! They should apply for a job!”
Fans have become convinced Gray is hiding a dark secret after they spotted his behaviour towards Chantelle can sometimes be seen as controlling – such as buying her a house without telling her – and they think he would make an amazing new villain for the show.

But Jessica thinks it’s too early for him to be evil, and that it’s just his way of showing that he cares.
She said: “I think that Gray’s love language is gifts. That is his way of showing his wife that he loves her by buying her things, by making sure that she looks and feels good.
“I guess, in a way that a man wants to provide for his woman, so that’s his way of showing his love for his wife, for his family.”
But she did insist her co-star Toby-Alexander Smith would make an amazing serial killer for the soap.
She said: “Toby is a fantastic actor so he could do it justice.”
Jessica added: “He is so down to earth and he’s hilarious, he’s actually hilarious and he literally sends me home with a belly ache because he’s so funny.”

Although while she would love to play the drama of her husband’s affairs out, Jessica also revealed she has one goal for her character – turning her into Walford’s own Villanelle from Killing Eve.
She said: “I want her to be a serial killer for sure. I want to be like Killing Eve and Chantelle to be the assassin.
“Sharon can be the boss and send me the list of who gets killed.”
And even if Sharon sent her to kill her former lover and Chantelle’s brother Keanu, he’d be dead.
Jessica laughed: “That would be awkward but I’m so ruthless I don’t even care.”
And after starring in Hollywood film How to Talk to Girls at Parties with Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, there was only one thing better – meeting EastEnders icon Letitia Dean.
“I was so nervous to meet both of them,” Jessica said.

“I mean Nicole Kidman, she is in some of my favourite movies, but then Letitia, I’ve watched her on TV my whole life. It’s like meeting my long lost auntie.
“It sounds like I’m just saying it, but they were both so lovely. Nicole gave me one of her chocolate rice cakes and i didn’t want to eat it and I wanted to save it and put it in a little box, but I thought it was a little weird so I ate it,” she laughed.
“Letitia is just so lovely, she hasn’t got a bad bone in her body, she’s just so happy all the time and positive and always a compliment and something nice to say. She’s just gorgeous.”
Jessica also revealed how after growing up watching the show she still finds it difficult to remember to call her co-stars by their real names instead of their character names.

“I do it all the time,” she laughed.
“I’ve had to stop myself, the safe thing is to just say hun or babe, or just nothing. Or just don’t say their name because you’re going to get confused. Louisa who plays Ruby, we’ve become quite close, and even just today, I was sending her a voice note, and I was like, ‘Oh Ruby’.
