Ben is gutted Callum wants to join the police in EastEnders
After some poignant advice from Pam Coker in EastEnders last week, unlucky-in-love Ben has let his guard down with Callum and realised that he deserves to be happy.
But the villain was left horrified at his boyfriend’s recent decision to join the police force – which wouldnt be ideal for Bens criminal ways and dodgy dealings.
And it looks like their relationship is going to reach rock bottom next week as the realisation dawns on Ben that Callum is serious about his unexpected career move.
A fearful Ben will be forced to admit he doesnt know if he can commit to his boyfriend after Callum shocks him with a bold proposition.
Meanwhile, Bens mum Kathy will be disgusted when she overhears Bens threats to family man Martin Fowler.
She warns him to get his act together but Ben has no time for his mum and no sympathy for the poor fruit and veg flogger.

But after being pulled on board, Bens good mood is quickly shattered when Callum comes at him with a huge ultimatum.
The Squares villain is left wrestling his conscience, which begins to kick in further when he sees how miserable Martin is working for him.
A confused Ben seems to thinking twice about his criminal behaviour as he confides in Jay about Callums career goals.
