Following the revelation that Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) has been struggling with his sexuality in EastEnders, the young lad developed feelings for Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and — following a steamy kiss — the pair ended up spending the night together. Callum’s done his best to forget about Ben ever since — but will he find himself drawn to the Mitchell lad once more as his wedding to Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) approaches?
Callum’s world was turned upside down back in May, when Ben discovered that he’d been struggling with his sexuality. The Mitchell lad did everything within his power to help Callum come to terms with who he is, but Callum was adamant that he wanted to be with Whitney — and, as a result, he proposed to her.
However, the attraction between the two men was simply too strong, and they ended up spending the night together. Callum has rebuked Ben ever since, but it’s pretty clear that he’s been developing feelings for him.
In the coming episodes, Mick (Danny Dyer) does everything he can to get the groom-to-be excited for his approaching Stag Do, and, while arranging the big night, he invites along Ben.
The Stag Do later gets underway, but Callum grows curious as to why Ben hasn’t turned up.
Later, a drunk Callum struggles with all the pressures, and he ends up lashing out at Ben. What will transpire between the two?
Will a fight ensue? Or will there be more romance?
With his wedding not far off — and Ben the only one that understands what he’s going through — will Callum perhaps give into temptation once more?
