Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) has left Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) battered and bruised in EastEnders on multiple occasions over the past couple of months, but it appears as if hes ready to carry out yet another unprovoked attack on the young man in the coming episodes. Although, this time, its for a very different reason.
When Stuart realised that his brother Callum (Tony Clay) was developing feelings for Ben, the Highway hard-man went out of his way to prevent the Mitchell lad from getting in the way of his brothers romance with Whitney (Shona McGarty). Back in June, he threatened Ben in the toilets of the Queen Vic then, in July, he brutally assaulted him in The Arches and left him for dead, then — on the night of Callums Stag Do in August — he knocked him unconscious and put him in a car boot.
Yes, its pretty clear that Stuart just doesnt like Ben — though we cant imagine why! However, youd think hed manage to put the contempt he feels for the Mitchell heir to one side given that Callum is beginning to date him, but unfortunately thats not the case, as he threatens to assault Ben once again.
However, this time, his anger isnt actually directed at Ben, but rather at his mum, Kathy (Gillian Taylforth). The Beale matriarch has been doing all she can to help Rainie (Tanya Franks) with her drug addiction but, in spite of her good intentions, Stuart doesnt take too kindly too her meddling, so he pays her a visit in the cafe and threatens to hurt both Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Ben for whats transpired.
Will he carry out his threat?
Lets hope not — for Bens sake!
