Tiffany Butcher-Baker and Callum Highway is the friendship we never knew we needed...

Tonight's EastEnders saw a low-key but brilliant scene play out between Tiffany and Callum, and fans are loving this heart-warming friendship between the pair.

There was plenty of drama in tonight's EastEnders for Callum.

Not only did he discover boyfriend Ben had been arrested for stealing a car... not really a good look for someone wanting to join the police, but he also discovered Ben was going to leave the Prince Albert with a mystery man.

But soon Callum's friendly chat was the last thing on his mind as he went to have it out with Ben about him trying to hook up with someone else.

Callum stood his ground, asking Ben why he never thinks of him before he acts, and before Ben knew what was happening, Callum was threatening to leave.
