The chemistry between the pair has been growing since Ben's return to Albert Square, and Ben was the first to guess that Callum is secretly gay.

On Thursday, the pair were seen having a very heated conversation - before they finally gave in to their passions and snogged each other's faces off!

The camera eventually panned away as the pair started ripping each other's clothes off in the park, before falling on the grass together.

The kiss came after emotional scenes between the pair.

Callum broke down in tears after admitting he felt lonely in his relationship with Whitney, and Ben opened up about being bullied for his sexuality throughout his life and his dead ex Paul Coker.

That last scene with Ben and Callum... It was emotional, intense and electric.

Callum, aka Halfway, said: "I've got a flat, I've got a girl, I've got everything. So why do I feel so lonely?

"I'm so tired of feeling lonely."

Sharing a moment of understanding, Ben wiped away Callum's tears and the couple became official.

And fans LOVED the union.

One wrote: "Officially obsessed with Ben and Callum. Please send help."

Another said: "That last scene with Ben and Callum... It was emotional, intense and electric! And I loved the way it was filmed, especially the kiss. I was watching with baited breath! Great job to everyone involved!"

A third typed: "That scene was incredibly electrifying. I so want Ben and Callum to work out."

"Wow. Absolutely beautiful and emotional," enthused one viewer. "Ben and Callum are compulsive viewing. Well done actors @MaxBowden & @tony_clay76. Well done @petelawson68 for such clever scripting, and stunning direction from @MrThomasHescott. And thank god for the inspirational Kate Oates."

Fans have even compared the coupling to Emmerdale's popular gay couple Robron, and have declared the pair 'Ballum'.

But the couple have a mountain of obstacles in their way... For starters, Callum is dating Whitney!

And his big brother Stuart won't take too kindly to him coming out as gay...

Spoilers tell us that Halfway soon proposes to Whitney, so it looks like the 'Ballum' fans won't be getting their way for a while!
