EastEnders Spoilers – Ben Mitchell And Lewis Butler Share Brief Kiss
Fans may recall that Ben’s dark secret was exposed. It was revealed that he was the man behind the brutal attacks in the area. Callum was horrified when he learned about it. Ben decided to open up to Lewis about what he’s done. The latter’s reaction was different from that of Callum.
Because of that, Ben thought that Lewis understood him more than Callum, and they shared a kiss. Ben realized that it wasn’t right and pulled away, but it was already too late because Callum had seen what happened between them.

Ben insisted that the kiss meant nothing but Callum just can’t get over the betrayal. The latter breaks up with Ben but he’ll eventually show the keys to their flat, which indicates that he really wants to have a future with Ben.
Callum is willing to give their relationship another chance provided that Ben follows his ground rules, which include not seeing Lewis anymore. He also promises that he won’t tell the police about the attacks as long as Ben never betrays him again.
Callum may seem to be ready to move past Ben’s mistake but it’ll be harder than it seems.
