Ben had hidden his new relationship from her, fearful she would think he had forgotten about Paul - and Pam was rightly angry.

A furious Pam demanded to know why Ben hadn't told her about his relationship with Callum.

She said: "Why didn't you tell me about you and Callum? And don't you dare insult me by saying it was to save my feelings, I am very disappointed in you."

An emotional Ben replied: "I didn't want you to think I forgot Paul."

She insisted: "Oh, for goodness sake Ben, of course I know you haven't.

"I would much rather you were in a loving relationship than being alone or going off and taking risks.

"I want you to be happy more than anything else in the world, and so would Paul. I think it's about time you started to show [that you care] don't you think?"

After finally being introduced to Callum, Pam was delighted that Ben had found someone new.

She told Callum: "You're a very lucky young man because Ben has the biggest heart of anyone I know. Take good care of each other."
