EastEnders star Harry Reid has hinted that we may not have seen the last of Ben Mitchell following his recent exit to Calais. Fans recently saw the mechanic discover that the stolen money from the heist had been taken and replaced with newspapers but, as he still had a wad of cash from sold jewellery, he opted for a fresh start anyway.
Ben’s sudden exit has left Phil in a bit of a pickle and he is determined to track him down as he fears that Aidan Maguire will get wind of him having had the money and kill him. But so far, he has been left without a hope.
In coming scenes though, Jay will give Phil a lead and a means of contacting Ben – and Harry has hinted that there is unfinished business which could herald a surprise appearance from his supposedly departed character.
He told the Daily Star: ‘Ben loves his dad and will always speak to him if he beckons, and he has beckoned, so I imagine they will speak. I think that ultimately they’ll sort it out between them and will hopefully have a very nice Christmas 2018.
‘If I do pop up in an episode, I’m speaking to my agent to sort out the money!I think I have given away too much…’
Whatever happens the Ben, the EastEnders audience will soon discover the truth about what has become of that missing money. But as for who has it – we couldn’t possibly give that away!
