EastEnders spoilers: Ben Mitchell’s exit sealed as he suffers heartbreaking loss

Ben Mitchell (played by Max Bowden) was forced to orchestrate Keanu Taylor’s (Danny Walters) ’death’ when Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) warned he would start drinking again and murder the mechanic himself without any plan in place to keep the police from suspecting him. Despite the pair not harming the mechanic, it looks like they will have to face the music on EastEnders and Ben will have to make a heartbreaking decision in upcoming episodes of the BBC soap.

Following the events of Christmas Day, Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) has put her revenge plan in motion.

After discovering from Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) what really happened that night, Sharon hasn’t wasted any time in making the Mitchells pay.

In recent scenes, Sharon bumped into a drunk Linda who explained that she and Martin had faked Keanu’s death and the mechanic is on the run.

She let slip Martin took a video of the ‘death’ to prove to Ben ironically he hadn’t let Keanu go.

Ben and Phil were subsequently arrested as Sharon made it clear she was the one who was behind the arrest.

Meanwhile, viewers are convinced Dot Cotton (June Brown) has left Walford for good after leaving an emotional message to Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy).

On a tape, Dot is heard explaining: “Sonia, this to tell you I’m off to Ireland to live alongside my lovely grandson Charlie. I should be able to help them when the baby comes.

“I do know why Sonia, why Martin shouldn’t have took that money but you’ll sort it out for me won’t you.

“You’ll let me know. Do remember you’re only at the other end of a phone line so you can always get in touch.”

“I shall miss you and I shall always love you as I know you love me. So, goodbye my dearest girl, your loving grandma, Dot,” she added.

But fans jumped to the conclusion this was a final goodbye from the EastEnders legend.

“Dot will probably die when she’s in Ireland visiting Charlie. Her goodbye sounded so final. #Eastenders,” a second shared.

A third tweeted: “I think Dot’s departure tonight was very final hope this isn’t the end of her. She deserves so much more than that exit #EastEnders.”

EastEnders continues Friday on BBC One at 8pm.
