EastEnders spoilers: Ben returns home

Last month Ben was raped by Lewis Butler in The Prince Albert.

Before the attack Ben had grown close to Lewis. After an argument with husband Callum, Ben went to meet Lewis.

The two went upstairs, but when Ben made it clear he didn’t want to have sex with Lewis, he forced himself on him.

After the attack Ben didn’t tell anyone what really happened. Callum believed Ben had consensual sex with Lewis and decided to end their marriage.

Eventually Ben told his mum Kathy that he was raped and she fired Lewis from his job in her bar.

However it becomes clear that Ben is still struggling with what happened.

In next week’s scenes it doesn’t take long for Kathy to realise that Ben is struggling after he and Jay return home.
