This Saturday (28 July), Corrie fans will see Ben’s familiar face guest star in Casualty.

And be prepared to really like his character – well, it had to be an improvement on Neil!

Ben portrays loving father Felix Barstow, who rushes to Holby ED when his son Aden is admitted after being beaten up.

And Felix is shocked to hear his son has been the victim of a vicious homophobic assault.

Widower Felix is heartbroken that his son couldn’t confide in him about being gay, and desperately hopes that he pulls through after being “very badly hurt”.

Unsurprisingly, consultant Elle Gardner locks horns with clinical lead Connie Beauchamp over Aden’s treatment.

With his life hanging in the balance, Elle wants to wait for Aden’s results, while Connie wants him operated on immediately!

Will he pull through?

While 39-year-old Ben is probably best known for his role as corrupt copper Neil Clifton in Weatherfield, he’s actually previously appeared in EastEnders and Doctors.

And this will be his fifth appearance as different characters in Casualty since 2005.

Elsewhere in the BBC medical drama, Alicia finds herself on a collision course with Bea after deciding not to report her rape.

And junior doctor Rashid Masum finally plucks up the courage to ask Gem out on a date…
