Callum Highway makes a desperate attempt to save Ben Mitchell in Tuesday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Callum Highway is at the Beales' waiting for Ben Mitchell to turn up for his daughter Lexi Pearce's celebration meal after her dance exam. When he doesn't arrive, Callum and the family assume that he's just being flaky.

When Ben's daughter Lexi Pearce plays the voicemail that he left her as he collapsed, she is confused. She plays it again so that Callum Highway and Jay Brown can see what they think.

Kathy Beale is as alarmed as she listens in with Jay and Callum, realising that something is seriously wrong. They rush out to the Square and when they find Ben collapsed they are horrified.

Ben has no pulse and as the paramedics rush to the scene they try to revive him as they take him to hospital.

Is it too late for Ben?
