Episode 4390



The apple, they say, never falls far from the tree. And that’s certainly true in the case of Ben Mitchell. When he first arrived in Albert Square, traumatised by the sudden death of his mum in South Africa, he was a sweet, shy kid who loved musicals. But a few years living with dad Phil Mitchell has changed him for ever. He’s not only sticking to his (untrue) story that Phil pushed Stella off a rooftop but has started plotting revenge on Shirley, too.
Although Ian shares Ben’s pleasure at the thought of Walford being a Mitchell-free zone, even he is shocked when he realises how far Ben will go to achieve it.


Shirley discovers how much Phil is suffering in prison, and visits Ian to ask him to speak to Ben. However, he turns her away - but she reacts by smashing her way into his house, and makes it clear that she will not take no for an answer. Tanya nervously visits the hospital for her MRI scan, accompanied by Max, while Rose is suspicious when she hears Dot telephoning the bank.
