Ben was rushed to hospital shortly after Hunter was shot dead by police while he was trying to kill as many members of the Mitchell family as possible.

He shot the father of Louise and Sharon's babies Keanu Taylor as he tried to rescue his girlfriend from him.

He then turned the gun on Louise but before he could fire the police ended his life.

Now Ben's life hangs in the balance and his family aren't the only ones worried about him - so is Callum Highway.

Funeral director Callum's life was left in tatters when Whitney discovered he was gay and had cheated with Ben.

She left him high and dry at the altar and was about to out him at the reception before Hunter's siege got in the way.

And after seeing his desperate attempts to keep Ben alive, Whitney seemed resigned to letting Callum come out in his own way - which he will, next week.

He is going to confide in his brother Stuart about his feelings for Ben amid his worries Ben won't survive.

But as he is confiding in Stuart, Whitney walks in and causes Callum to rush out embarrassed.

Maybe she's not quite as over it as anyone thought!

Later Stuart tries to reassure Callum that everything will be okay and he has his brother's back no matter what.

But will it be enough and will Ben pull through his coma for them to actually get together?
