Ben is brutally attacked in EastEnders tonight

Troubled Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) continues to lash out in EastEnders tonight as his continued anger towards his dad Phil (Steve McFadden) and his complicated feelings for Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) continue to plague him. With him having hit the bottle and left Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) concerned for his welfare, things come to a head tonight.

Due to Ben’s self destructive behaviour, which was flagged to him by Shirley Carter (Linda Henry), Phil has reached the decision to cut his son out of his will, replacing him with Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) – the man who was secretly having an affair with his now pregnant wife Sharon (Letitia Dean)! We hope you’re keeping up because we’re struggling!

Tonight, as a drunk Ben deliberately goads some other men in E20, he is pounced on by them outside and subjected to a beating, which he self loathingly accepts. But will anyone come to his aid and help him in his hour of need? Or will Ben continue to destroy himself?

This behaviour comes before Ben even knows about the will and, given that fans know that Phil will soon be attacked and left for dead, there are suspicions that Ben will bethe one to carry out the act.

Is the Mitchell family about to be further destroyed by more violence as tempers continue to flare?

EastEnders continues on Thursday 18th July at 7:30pm on BBC One.
