Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) is set to exit EastEnders in the coming months, and it seems his exit story may involve a revenge plot against none other than Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo).
Since Johnny Carter’s (Charlie Suff) return to the Square, Ben and Callum Highway (Tony Clay) have spent a lot of time catching up with the law graduate, which has meant getting an idea of just how angry he is about his mum Linda Carter’s (Kellie Bright) current situation.
Linda has fallen back into the clutches of alcoholism following Dean’s return to Walford and his subsequent determination to completely destroy her life.
Since his return, he has set up a business down the road from where she lives, has bragged about dating her future step-sister and even blackmailed her into falsely confessing to lying about being raped, which he recorded and played in front of the whole pub.
Despite his heinous crime, Dean has been walking around Albert Square without a care in the world, leaving Linda looking over her shoulder wherever she goes.
