There’s more drama for the Mitchells on next week’s EastEnders in the wake of Ben’s decision to donate his liver to save dad Phil’s life.
Upcoming episodes of the BBC1 soap will see Ben tell Phil that he wants to go ahead with the transplant despite his dad’s concerns. And pretty soon, Ben is calling a family meeting and telling everyone of his plans.
But a new crisis will come on Thursday 15 September when Ben goes along to one of Phil’s routine hospital appointments and speaks to the doctor about the possibilities of becoming Phil’s donor.
Both father and son get a reality check when the doctor explains the risks of the operation and – not wanting to hear it – Phil storms out. Can Ben talk him round? Or will Phil remain resolute in his refusal to accept Ben’s help?
You can watch a 60-second rundown of next week’s episodes of EastEnders below.
