Ben Mitchell finds it impossible to admit he was assaulted by Lewis Butler in Wednesday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Ben Mitchell's mum Kathy Beale hears from Stuart Highway the local gossip that Ben cheated on husband Callum Highway with bar manager Lewis Butler. Horrified to think it could be true she determines to find out the truth.

Jay Mitchell is also sure that Ben's been playing away and he confronts it over it but Ben has nothing to say, let alone to admit that he was raped.

Heading over to talk to Lewis, Ben is interrupted by a furious Kathy, who has a go at them both for betraying Callum.

Later Callum can't keep quiet about it any longer and he fronts up to Lewis, demanding to know exactly what happened. Lewis claims that Ben came on to him by contacting him on the dating app. 

With the evidence seemingly stacking up against Ben, Callum feels Ben has finally gone too far and their marriage can't be saved. 

Can Ben convince Callum how much he loves him or is it really over for good?

With Jean still struggling with her bipolar condition, she's insisting that she wants Lily, and not Stacey Slater, looking after her.

Will Stacey agree?
