BEN Mitchell is going to attack James Willmott-Brown in EastEnders.

The young mechanic – who is played by actor Harry Reid in the BBC soap – will fly into a rage when he discovers his boyfriend Luke is the son of the man who viciously raped his mother Kathy.

Desperate to seek revenge on the brute, Ben, who has already killed Heather Trott and come close to killing boyfriend Paul’s murderers, will hatch a plan.

But when he learns that Willmott-Brown wants to meet him, it looks like he will get the chance to put his plan into action.
