Viewers of EastEnders are convinced that Ben Mitchell’s secret lover is Chantelle Atkin’s husband Gray.
Last week in Tuesday’s episode (May 7) Ben was seen exchanging saucy text messages with a man.
He was receiving texts from a mystery fella called ‘Pecs Guy’ just hours after he had stolen several cars from Maximum Motors.
The message read: “Last night was hot. More later?”
It was followed by what can only be described as the squirting emoji.
Viewers then saw Ben reply while having breakfast with his daughter.
He typed: “Problem at home I gotta sort out first.”
Ben also finished with an emoji – the aubergine emoji (which represents a penis, in case you didn’t know!).
While some were shocked by the X-rated pre-watershed messages, others were trying to figure out who could be ‘Pecs guy’.
Viewers on Twitter think that it could be new arrival Gray Atkins.
is gray gonna be the guy that ben is messaging?👀 #EastEnders

Jessica Plummer, who plays Chantelle, has addressed the rumours.
Speaking to The Sun, Jessica said: “Oh my God that would be awesome.”
She then added: “Well I’m not sure about Chantelle, but like Jessica thinks that’s awesome, if the writers haven’t thought of that, they should maybe consider it.”
The actress, who shot to fame in the girl group Neon Jungle, has hinted there could be drama ahead.
She said ” It is EastEnders, there’s going to be drama, there’s going to be something or things that come up.”
EastEnders is on Mondays and Fridays at 8pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
