Ben Mitchell is worried that he'll be caught for the attack in Monday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Ben Mitchell is in a bit of a fix after leaving the guy who verbally abused him and bar manager Lewis in a very bad way. The police are investigating his assault and Ben's worried the evidence could lead back to him.

He visits Steve in the hospital but when he sees Steve's mum, he lies that he's a 'friend' of Steve's. Ben then finds Sharon Watts, who discovered him carrying out the assault, and asks her to be his alibi.

Jack Branning and Callum Highway interview Steve's mum and she reveals that a friend of her son's paid her a visit. The coppers are suspicious and they say that they'll check the CCTV to see if they can identify a suspect.
