EastEnders' Ben destroyed as Callum admits to trying to get Phil sent down

EastEnders legend Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) was rendered speechless tonight (May 3), after Callum Highway’s (Tony Clay) confirmed that he’d been working undercover to take Phil (Steve McFadden) down.

An almighty ‘Doof Doof’ if there was ever one!

Having been left suspicious following Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) claim about the Mitchell’s being responsible for Kush Kazemi’s (Davood Ghadami) death, Callum decided he wanted answers.

After another confrontation with Whitney, the young lad decided that there was only one way to get to the truth, and that was to confront Ben head on.

Therefore, he asked him outright if he had anything to do with Kush’s murder!

Ben, horrified at his boyfriend’s doubts, reassured him that he did not have a part to play in the market trader’s demise, and Callum ultimately believed him.

However, things took an interesting turn when Ben asked for complete and total clarity from here on out.

Unwilling to start their marriage on a lie, Callum decided to drop a bombshell.

Reminding his fiancé about his mysterious stint undercover last year, the young copper came clean – revealing that DI Steve Thompson (Phillip Wright) was not the target like he’d previously claimed.

Phil was!

Ben was left trying to comprehend his beau’s betrayal, but what does this mean for their impending wedding?

Will Ballum make it down the aisle? Or has this bombshell well and truly ruined everything?

EastEnders continues Tuesday May 4 at 7:30pm on BBC One.
