EASTENDERS viewers were left in tears this evening as Stuart Highway brutally beat up Ben Mitchell after discovering he had slept with his brother Callum.
On tonight’s show the BBC soap celebrated Pride with the opening of the square’s first gay club – Prince Albert but things took a sour turn when Stuart confronted his terrified brother.
Callum then admitted to sleeping with Ben in an emotional chat – but insisted he is in love with his fiancee Whitney and wants to marry her.
The secret affair has been going on for over a month and Halfway is torn between fancying Ben and loving his future bride.
He was seen crying at the end of the dramatic episode that saw Albert Square celebrate Pride month with a colourful party.
The scene cut to Stuart kicking Ben in the face in a brutal attack and then viewers saw Callum weeping as he watched the band sing Proud by Heather Small.
Viewers were left sickened as they watch him laugh on the floor with blood running down his face, before he was seen completely unconscious.
One person said: “This ending has me in floods of tears right now! So sickening seeing Stuart Beat Ben up just because of Bens sexuality.”
Another wrote: “# what a last beautiful scene ended with a peck on the cheek literally in tears with happiness for # oh dear kiss witnessed with # though bring on tomorrow”
Callum Highway’s secret affair with Ben Mitchell is FINALLY set to be exposed as they’re caught kissing at his wedding to Whitney Dean.
The pair have been having a steamy affair ever since Ben’s return to Albert Square.

“It would shatter Whitney is if her plans for the future were shattered on the day she thinks everything is finally going to fall into place for her.
“As for Callum, he knows he needs to be honest – with himself more than anyone. Ben is unpredictable and could out the truth at any time – so will Callum beat him to it? Or will Callum and Whitney become husband and life, leaving unresolved tensions and even more heartache to come?”
