EastEnders Luke Ben

Walford is full of romance after Ben Mitchell spent the night with Luke Browning but, as usual for the infamous area of East London, nothing is ever straight forward for its residents.

Ben, played by Harry Reid, previously met Luke (Adam Astill) but, little did he know, that the stranger had a chilling history.

Luke is the son of James Willmott-Brown - the villain who raped Ben’s mother Kathy Beale - and Ben is unaware that Luke has appeared on Albert Square with a plan in mind.

Before Luke got chatting to Ben, he had been in the Queen Vic, telling Shirley Carter that the building is in disrepair, secretly planning to take it over and kick the Carter family out.

However, he set about working on getting on the good side of the locals, enjoying a few drinks with Ben, Donna and Jay.

And after the pair became more relaxed, Ben and Luke headed over to the Arches, with Luke telling Ben he wanted to borrow a pair of jump leads, before they started ripping each other’s clothes off.

This is only going to lead to bad things as Luke intends to use Ben to get to Kathy.

How long will it take for Ben to realise Luke’s connection to his mum and how will he react?

EastEnders continues tomorrow on BBC One at 8pm.
