Chantelle Atkins (née Baker) made her first appearance 26 March 2019. She is portrayed by Jessica Plummer.
Chantelle is the daughter of Karen Taylor and Mitch Baker, sister of Keegan Baker as well as half-sister to her mother's children Keanu, Bernadette, Chatham and Riley Taylor and her father's young daughter Bailey Baker. She is the wife of Gray Atkins and the mother of two children, Mia and Mackenzie.
In March 2019, Chantelle was introduced to Kim Fox-Hubbard as her new hairdresser - despite not actually knowing she was auditioning for a job when she went round to Kim's; she intended that she was cutting someone's hair and that was all.
She later competed in a hairdressing competition with Kim and Denise against her dad who she had not seen in years and was reunited with the rest of her family.
