Walford has been left shaken after a series of attacks on its residents have been linked to far-right hate groups. On New Year’s Eve, a bomb was placed at the site of a new mosque, next to Kathy Beale’s (played by Gillian Taylforth) gay bar The Albert and on Tuesday, several residents were attacked in a homophobic assault. However, will these string of attacks lead to Callum Highway (Tony Clay) and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) being torn apart for good in EastEnders?

In recent scenes, Ben froze as he watched his husband being attacked by a group of thugs. 

The incident will bring back traumatic memories for the dodgy dealer having lost his boyfriend Paul Coker (Jonny Labey) in the same way. 

Will history repeat itself and lead to Ben finding himself in grave danger?

Official soap spoilers confirm a concerned Callum will reach out to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

He asks him to give his son a break but Ben isn’t pleased when he finds out his husband went behind his back.

Callum tries desperately to get through to Ben but the Mitchell hard man refuses to open up.

Later, Ben’s taken off guard when Paul’s grandmother Pam Coker (Lin Blakley) pops over. 

After hearing about the attack, Pam wanted to check on Ben and the dodgy dealer allows himself to be vulnerable. 

Ben breaks down as Pam comforts him but he fails to be as open with his husband.

The Mitchell son then misses a meeting with Phil and some important clients. 

Phil is furious with his son and makes it clear he won’t give Ben special treatment. 

Worried about his husband, Callum speaks to Kathy and asks for her advice. 

Meanwhile, Phil bumps into Isaac Baptise (Stevie Basaula) walking Lexi Mitchell (Isabella Brown) home and warns him he wants nothing to do with grasses.

Kathy interrupts the tense moment and informs Phil she needs to talk to him about their son. 

When Ben arrives home, he realises his mum, dad and husband have staged an intervention. 

The dodgy dealer breaks down and admits the latest attack has left him fearing for his safety. 

Last year, Ben was devastated when Paul’s killer Simon Atmore (Tom Palmer) had been released from prison after successfully appealing his conviction.

Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) assaulted Ben on his behalf and it’s likely the Mitchell hard man will want revenge on the gang that attacked Callum. 

It’s clear Ben isn’t in the right frame of mind to track down the far-right gang and could end up getting hurt. 

Although he was harmed, police officer Callum would want to avoid taking revenge on the group and instead prefer bringing them to justice. 

Will Ben sneak off alone to attack the homophobic gang and find himself in grave danger?

In a tragic twist of fate, Callum may discover Ben has been killed by the gang just as his husband witnessed Paul’s death. 

EastEnders airs on BBC One on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
