Ben takes drastic action over Lola's EastEnders exit

Ben Mitchell has only been back in EastEnders five minutes but he’s already orchestrating trouble.

In scenes due to air on Friday the recently returned character, now played by Max Bowden, goes to extreme lengths to make sure Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) doesn’t leave Walford.

Lola plans to leave Albert Square in Thursday’s episode after she sees love interest Jay Mitchell (Jamie Borthwick) having a heart-to-heart with Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton) – despite Billy (Perry Fenwick) getting her hopes up that the couple might be on the rocks.

Although she’s being offered a job at the salon by Denise Fox (Diane Parish), Lola starts to feel deflated and later reveals her plans that she’s moving back to Newcastle with Lexi.

Seething with her decision, Ben confronts Lola about her impulsive move and pleads with her to stay just one more day so he can spend time with Lexi and feeling the pressure, he hatches a plan with Billy to get her to change her mind.

What extreme measures will Ben go this time?

Viewers have known for well over a month that Lola is one of the few characters to know what exactly Ben’s been scheming against his dad Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Since revealing his plan against Phil, Ben’s taken it too far with innocent people getting caught up in the crossfire. Is he keen to get Lola to stay in Walford so he can keep her in check? Only time will tell…

One to watch: Friday 28 June at 8pm on BBC One.
