Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) has been struggling with his additional hearing loss in EastEnders as a result of the injury he sustained during the boat tragedy, and he’s set to find himself in extreme danger as a result, as he steps out in front of a motorbike — much to Kathy Beale’s (Gillian Taylforth) dismay — but will she be able to rescue him in time?
Determined to locate boyfriend Callum (Tony Clay), Ben got into a physical brawl with Keanu (Danny Walters) on board the party boat, and the two men ended up in the Thames as a result. As Ben emerged from the water, he hit his head off the side of the boat, and has been unable to hear as a result.
Jay (Jamie Borthwick) and Lola (Danielle Harold) took him to the hospital, where he learned that he’s got total hearing loss in what was his good ear, and the little hearing he had in the other ear had deteriorated also.
The doctor informed him about the cochlear implant operation, but he told Jay and Lola about what the procedure would entail, Ben became frustrated at being unable to hear him and thus stormed out.
All Ben has been able to think about is Callum’s whereabouts, but during the latest episode, he finally managed to locate his boyfriend with the help of Jay and Stuart (Ricky Champ).
However, there’s more danger afoot in the next episode, as — still struggling with his hearing loss — Ben steps out in front of a motorbike, and an alarmed Kathy sees the whole thing unfold, and thus she rushes to his rescue.
The question is: will she make it in time?
