EastEnders boss reveals shocking twist for Ben and Phil Mitchell

EastEnders is set to air a huge twist in Ben Mitchell’s (Max Bowden) revenge story against his dad Phil (Steve McFadden) according to executive producer Jon Sen – and it’s one that will make the summer explode and potentially tear the whole family apart forever.

Speaking exclusively for Metro.co.uk’s brand new soaps newsletter which launched this morning – sign up here if you want these stories earlier than everyone else – Jon said: ‘For the Mitchells, it is fair to say Ben’s return hasn’t gone the way he planned but he’s proven himself to be a man who will go to any lengths to get what he wants and that doesn’t stop with his scheming – it extends to his love life too.

‘As Phil looks like he might work out what Ben’s up to an unexpected twist is about to turn their worlds upside down…’

Whether or not it will expose Ben’s true colours or send Phil off in another direction – such as discovering Sharon’s affair with Keanu – it’s clear that life is not going to be quiet in the Mitchell household.

And that goes for the rest of Walford too.

Jon added: ‘The Slaters haven’t had an easy ride over the past few weeks but the drama doesn’t stop there – when loyalties are tested, Kat and Stacey go to war, giving fans another chance to enjoy Jessie Wallace and Lacey Turner at their finest. Jean’s story will continue into the summer with Gillian Wright continuing to give a heartbreaking portrayal of a woman coping with the physical and mental reality of living with cancer. But Jean may soon have a reason to smile in the form of straight-talking Daniel, played by the wonderful Adrian Edmondson.

‘So fans should tune in to see love blossoming on the Square this summer with an unlikely duo, the Brannings finding themselves at the mercy of the women in their lives, drama for the Carters when they are faced with an unexpected obstacle that tests their relationship, the Highway brothers coming face to face with their dad and as always, there’s trouble in store for the Taylors…

‘Without a doubt, EastEnders is going to be sizzling this summer.’
