Ben Mitchell finds himself in handcuffs in Wednesday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Ben Mitchell and Peter Beale are still at odds after Peter's discovery that Ben accidentally beat him up, thinking he was someone else. 

Kathy Beale is pushed to her limit with the pair's bickering and vows to bring the family back together.

It's Rocky Cotton's birthday and Kathy decides to arrange a games night to celebrate. After telling Ben and Peter in no uncertain terms that she wants them both there, she invites Lola Pearce, Jay Mitchell and Harvey Monroe.

Meanwhile, Peter heads over to Walford East and things soon start getting steamy with his brother Bobby Beale's ex Dana Monroe. 

They're soon kissing passionately and peeling each other's clothes off. But someone has seen them together...

At the Beales', Rocky's party gets underway and a sulking Ben makes it quite clear he's got zero interest in being there. But things get even worse when he realises that Kathy's pretty much staged the party to be an intervention for him!

Peter is less than impressed that Kathy is putting all her attention on her son yet again and ignoring the rest of her family. After a huge row between him and Ben, things get even more fraught when Ben drops a bombshell.

The party in tatters, there's a knock at the door and Kathy's stunned to see the police there. They barge their way into the party and put Ben in handcuffs...

Peter has reported him for assault!
