EastEnders fans are continuing to share their opinion on the aftermath storyline of Ben Mitchell’s (Max Bowden) rape, which happened during Monday’s edition of the BBC One soap.

Following the attack, Ben has understandably struggled to process everything that’s happened.

For husband Callum (Tony Clay), he was left wondering where Ben was the night of his sexual assault, and when Sam (Kim Medcalf) revealed she spotted him leaving The Albert early Tuesday morning, Callum began to fear he had spent the night with Lewis (Aidan O’Callaghan).

During a confrontation, Callum asked Ben if he slept with Lewis.

Because Ben was unable to communicate what really happened, he didn’t deny it and last night, Callum told Ben their relationship was over.

As Callum walked out, Ben burst into tears and collapsed to the floor, leaving many fans devastated.

‘You can tell Ben is broken. I hope he can speak about it soon’, one Twitter user said.

You can tell Ben is broken 🥺💔 I hope he can speak about it soon #EastEnders
