SNEAK PEEK! There's a showdown between Whitney and Ben on EastEnders on Friday 30th September. (Picture: BBC)

The couple will need to make up their minds soon, as in tonight's (Thursday) episode of EastEnders (opens in new tab), the hen and stag nights got underway.

While the ladies went wild at the E20, the fellas got lairy at the Vic with Callum's brother Stuart (Ricky Champ) secretly out to make sure Ben didn't ruin the moment by locking him in the boot of a car at the Arches!

Callum was shocked when he found out what his brother had done, and rushed over to free Ben. However, tensions soon rose between the pair when Callum made it clear he wasn't gay and was sticking with fiancee Whitney.

But Ben knew exactly how to wind him up, causing a drunk and confused Callum to snap and lash out at Ben!

However, Callum's conscience soon got the better of him. Gate crashing the hen party, he asked to speak to Whitney alone. And that's when she heard the kind of confession no bride-to-be wants to hear shortly before their wedding day:

"I cheated on you," Callum confessed.

"What? With who?" Whitney wanted to know.

"Ben Mitchell."
