EastEnders star Max Bowden has revealed that this winter is going to be one hell of a ride for Ben Mitchell – starting with a mighty war with the Panesar brothers and ending with an unforgettable Christmas alongside his boyfriend Callum Highway (Tony Clay). Yes, we are living for it.
Named the Best Bad Boy at the recent Inside Soap Awards, Ben will be in the midst of a feud with the Panesars and will also drag Martin Fowler (James Bye) into the mess – with catastrophic results. But along the way, Ballum will continue to thrive much to the joy of fans as Max confirmed that the couple are still very much a ‘thing’ by Christmas time.
Is it too much to ask for them to be wearing matching jumpers or are we getting a little too fanfic here?
Speaking about the Christmas events ahead, Max exclusively teased to Metro.co.uk that the couple will be enjoying the festivities in each other’s company.
‘I would imagine so, yes,’ he said in response to being asked whether they’ll be celebrating together.
Sounds like our kind of EastEnders Christmas! But before all of that, Ben has the Panesars and Martin to contend with – and there will be intense scenes.
Max added: ‘The Panesars have come in now, so that drama there is definitely going to unfold. They’re brave, they’re boisterous, they’re going to give Ben a run for his money.’
He continued: ‘With Ben, it’s 100 miles per hour all the time. At the moment, things are starting to take off again, things are nice with Ballum.
‘Martin’s just come back to the Square which is leverage for Ben to create this whole new drama.’
EastEnders swept up three other prizes from Inside Soap, including two comedy prizes for Danny Dyer (Mick Carter) and Lorraine Stanley (Karen Taylor) as well as a Best Young Performer for Kara Leah Fernandes (Bailey Baker).
Not a bad night for Walford!
