EastEnders’ Ben Mitchell lashes out as he struggles with Callum’s disappearance
EastEnders airs turmoil for Ben Mitchell this week, as news from the police – or lack of news – about missing Callum Highway leads to him lashing out.
The character was on the warpath last week, embroiled in a showdown with Callum's kidnapper Keanu Taylor.
But with Keanu now gone, Ben has no idea where the love of his life is – and if he's even alive.
Ben was injured in the boat crash during his showdown with Keanu, and will soon learn he has suffered major hearing loss.
But this is the least of his worries, he believes, with Callum and his safety being his priority.
Monday's episode saw Jay Brown trying to make his friend see sense, but Ben was adamant that rescuing Callum came first.
Now, Callum's brother Stuart knows he's missing and a trailer has teased the trio will head off to find him.
In scenes to come this week, Ben will grow frustrated with him still not having found Callum.
Emotions run high as he struggles with his hearing loss, and the fact he has no idea where his boyfriend is.
He continues to panic, fearing the worst, and it's not long before he's lashing out at the police.
Ben has had trouble with the law over the years, so will he do something he might regret?
