Fans of EastEnders weep as Ben makes a love decision for Callum following a homophobic attack.


Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), one of the most popular characters on EastEnders, has announced that he will no longer be open about his sexuality.

Last week, a group of thugs brutally attacked the mechanic and his husband, Callum Highway (Tony Clay), in a homophobic attack.

Fans of the BBC One soap have been trying to make sense of the recent episodes’ horrific beating.

During Friday’s visit to Albert Square, Callum (Tony Clay) made every effort to persuade Ben that they can solve his problem.

Ben goes out to speak with his Pam Coker (Lin Blakley) again, frustrated that Callum doesn’t understand.
