EastEnders fans are convinced Ben Mitchell is going to make a shock comeback to Walford.

But unbeknownst to him Sharon had taken it for herself and left him with only a small portion of the cash.

He fled to Europe on the run from gangsters Aidan and Ciara Maguire.

Viewers have watched as Ben’s dad Phil left in a hurry to go to Spain for some business.

But fans are convinced this business has everything to do with bringing Ben back to his home.

One viewer wrote on DS Forums: “I don’t know if this has been covered before on here, but what on earth has he gone away for 1-2 months?”

They added: “The only possible theory I can think of is that he is bringing Ben home, probably in a bid to rebuild the hacked apart Mitchell name.

“And obviously a plot device to get Phil out of the way for Sharon to entertain Keanu.”

Another said: “He said it was for business as it would make him a lot of money, probably something dodgy no doubt.”

A third added: “Love him to being back Ben.”

However, Ben’s return could be required so Phil has someone to hold him back when he inevitably discovers wife Sharon’s affair with Keanu Taylor.

The two have been flirting constantly for weeks and they finally sealed the deal and got together last week.

And with the affair set to heat up, and narrowly avoid being exposed by Louise, Phil needs to get back to Walford as soon as possible.
