EASTENDERS fans have raged against the "horrible" new Ben Mitchell on Albert Square after he told Jay Brown that Lola Pearce was secretly engaged.
However, many believe she is now going to turn the tables on Ben – by revealing his plan to swipe Phil Mitchell's fortune.
Viewers tonight heard Jay tell Lola: "What do you reckon, me and you? We're older, wiser. Maybe we can make it work."
And she seemed dizzily in love with the idea – until Ben barged his way in and revealed Lola had a string of missed calls from "Ewan".
When Jay demanded to know who that was, Ben slyly replied: "I really don't think it's my place to say. He's Lola's fiance."
If anyone has tried any less hard to keep a secret, we'd love to see it – with Jay promptly getting up and storming out of the Vic.
Ben then turned to her and said menacingly: "If you ain't gonna stick to the plan on your own, then I'll make sure you do."
However, viewers insisted Lola would get her own back, with one tweeting: "I want Lola to reveal Ben's plan & then be with Jay ."
Another insisted: "GO AWAY NEW BEN 😡. LEAVE LOLA AND JAY TO LIVE HAPPY EVER AFTER."
A third wrote: "Hate Ben, leave Jay and Lola alone 😨😨😠."
One other told her: "Lola,you are not a pushover. You have Mitchell in you. Stand up to Ben and Expose his Daft ideas to Phil🙄."
The new Ben has sharply divided viewers since he arrived in his latest incarnation played by Max Bowden.
Tonight, he taunted Lola in a bid to get her to stick to the plan, promising her "a flat of your own. A little love nest, debt and mortgage free".
Fans were not impressed, with one raging: "Oh god, I really can’t stand new Ben.
"He’s a horrible person & nothing like the well balanced good/bad Ben of old. He’s horrible!"
