Ben’s desire to seek revenge for boyfriend Paul’s death has been leading him into all sorts of trouble recently but next week in EastEnders the situation takes a serious turn as he and Jay are abducted.
After the two Mitchell boys have been shoved into a van and driven off, the Mitchell clan is in danger and Courtney takes it upon herself to call for reinforcements in the form of dad Grant. He arrives in the Square to sort out the mess alongside brother Phil. However, when an unwell Phil collapses, Grant is forced to take the lead.
Grant has no qualms about going all out to protect the family. After Phil’s collapse, Mark Fowler Jr offers to help him. Little does Grant know that Mark is actually his long-lost son. The leather jacket-clad duo risk putting themselves in harm’s way while trying to rectify the situation.
Ian and Sharon are in the know about Mark’s parentage and are desperate to hide the truth, especially as Mark and Grant are now spending so much time in close proximity. Will they be able to stop the secret from getting out? And will the Mitchells be able to drag themselves out of the dire straights they’re in?
