Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) made his desire to marry Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) known in EastEnders tonight (January 5).
With Callum determined to solve his DI Thompson (Phillip Wright) problem, he recruited Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) help.
Jack successfully persuaded Thompson to back off — thus putting an end to the young copper’s nightmare, before spinning a lightly altered version of the tale to Phil (Steve McFadden) and Ben — one which painted Callum as a hero.
Ben wasn’t pleased that Callum had withheld this information from him, but he ultimately understood that his beau was determined to protect him.
As Callum headed to the bar at The Vic to get in the next round, Ben stared at him lovingly.
Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) asked Ben about the loved up expression on his face, and the young man responded by revealing that he intends on marrying Callum!
‘I’m going to marry that man, Jay’, he told his best mate, and no, you’re crying.
Will Ben propose to Callum?
Could there be wedding bells in Ballum’s future?
Or will Ben perhaps discover the whole truth about what Callum’s been up to over the past couple of months?
EastEnders continues Thursday January 7 at 7:35pm on BBC One.
