Callum Highway (played by Tony Clay), Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) love triangle recently came to a head when the unlucky-in-love, wife-to-be left Callum at the alter when she realised he had been hiding his true feelings for the Mitchell bad boy. But there could be a further wedding twist in the ‘Ballum’ drama after Callum star Tony dropped a hint about the couple’s future.
Months of secret kisses and suppressed feelings came to a surface in emotional scenes as their affair was finally exposed.
Heartbroken and confused, Callum was soon faced with the prospect of losing Ben after he was caught in the cross fire of Hunter Owen’s (Charlie Winters) revenge plan.
Happy endings in Albert Square are rare and as Ben lies in hospital recovering, the couple’s future looks uncertain.
Speaking to press including Express.co.uk, EastEnders stars Tony and Max revealed how they would like to see ‘Ballum’ develop.
