In Thursday’s episode (February 27 2020) Kathy, Ian, Peter and Bobby learnt that Ben had lost his hearing in the boat accident last week.

Ben suffered a head injury causing him to lose even more of his hearing.

Despite his inability to hear anything, Ben was determined to find his boyfriend Callum, who had been kidnapped by Keanu.

Although Keanu had revealed where he was keeping his hostage, Callum had fallen off a ledge failing to see the drop through PVC strip curtains.

Unable to find Callum or get in touch with Keanu for more information, Callum’s brother, Stuart, and Ben have been left worried sick about him.

Stuart realised Callum must be at the warehouse as Keanu’s phone calls had been made from the area.

Along with Jay and Ben, they went back to look for Callum and Ben found him in amongst the rubbish.

Whilst paramedics confirmed he would be okay, Ben was left emotional.

It was recently revealed the soap would be introducing their first deaf character to help Ben with his hearing loss.
