EastEnders fans were in for a huge shock in last nights episode (July 18th) when they discovered that Ben Mitchell hasn’t died, instead his boyfriend Paul has.
In Monday nights episode we seen Ian and Phil rush to the hospital after they had been notified that Ben was taken in after sustaining serious injuries.
While Phil and Ian waited in the A&E department, a doctor broke the sad news to them that Ben had died of his injuries shortly before they managed to arrive.
But, another shock was yet to come when Phil was faced with the painful task of identifying his sons body to police.
As Phil and Ian were taken to supposedly see Ben’s body, they couldn’t control their emotions when the doctors pulled back the curtains only to reveal the body of Ben’s boyfriend Paul.
Paul’s identity was mistaken for Ben Mitchell’s, but as Ben didn’t return home the night before, could he be dead also or in grave danger?
EastEnders continues tonight from 7:30pm on BBC One
