EastEnders aired a special LGBTQ+ Pride episode last night, to mark Pride month.

And while viewers were thrilled by many joyful moments, including Karen Taylor telling Bernie how proud she is of her, a shocking attack at the end of the episode left them reeling.

Stuart was on the warpath after his brother Callum admitted that he has feelings for Ben that extend beyond friendship.

When Stuart asked if Callum was gay, his younger brother admitted that he didn’t know but he was adamant that he loves Whitney Dean and doesn’t want to lose her.

Stuart assumed that Ben is messing with his head, and told him Whitney was all that mattered.

But later, as the Pride celebrations kicked off, Stuart stole Callum’s phone and arranged a meeting with Ben at the Arches.
