Stuart discovers Ben and Callum's secret passion in EastEnders
The sizzling tension between Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) is something he is keen to put behind him following their kiss in EastEnders. But as Callum tries to focus his mind on planning his wedding to Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), his path will continue to cross with Ben – leading to Stuart (Ricky Champ) discovering the truth about their growing closeness. But how will he react?
After Whitney and Stuart persuade Callum to reach out to his dad Jonno, despite them not having the best relationship, Callum is anxious as they meet up and before long, Jonno is questioning Callum’s life choices and becoming aggressive.
Stuart steps in to defend his younger brother but before long, Jonno is stirring up more trouble and making enemies of Ben and Phil (Steve McFadden). When Ben later joins a conversation between Callum, who is desperate to impress his dad, and Jonno, he subtly antagonises the aggressive father.
Jonno follows Ben into the toilets where he launches an attack and after a fight, Ben approaches Callum and offers him some advice on dealing with violent fathers who will never accept their sons.
Understanding Callum’s position, Ben empathises and kisses him lightly on the cheek but Stuart is shocked to witness this. At the Pride event, where Callum is modelling Whitney’s t-shirts, Stuart confronts his brother over what he saw.
But will he be understanding over Callum’s conflicted feelings? And will Whitney find out what has gone on behind her back?
