Why is EastEnders on BBC Two tonight?

Normal EastEnders service will resume next Tuesday (9 August).

Spoilers for tonight’s episode reveal little Lexi Mitchell is upset when dad Ben doesn’t show up for her birthday dinner.

When Callum and Jay arrive, Lexi plays Ben’s voice memo to them and they realize something is wrong.

A panicked Callum and Jay run to Ben along with Kathy, only to find their worst fears have come true – they can’t find a pulse.

When Phil returns, Sharon tells him the truth – that Sam knew Ben was on drugs and allowed it to happen.

How will Phil react to this bombastic news?

There are no EastEnders tomorrow (Wednesday 3 August) so Sam will have to wait until Thursday to face Phil’s wrath.

Meanwhile, Ben’s recent behavior on Twitter has proved to be a talking point for fans.

Viewers know Ben has struggled to cope since he was raped by barman Lewis Butler in May.

Unable to process his feelings about the attack, Ben has turned to alcohol and drugs.

Not everyone looking at the soap could understand the character’s reaction to such a traumatic event.

And fans have been discussing Ben’s recent actions, including his substance abuse and casual sex.

In a clip from tonight’s episode, Callum is shocked when Rocky jokes about Ben showing up with “a random guy”.

One fan admitted that he could understand Rocky’s point of view, saying: “I agree; although he was right about Ben taking James home etc. There is a place and a time and that was not the place or time to make such a remark. Rocky is no saint himself.”

But others quickly jumped to Ben’s defense.

“Ben is not well. He doesn’t want to act like that – it’s a trauma reaction. Rocky’s comments were inappropriate and hurtful. He should have considered Callum’s feelings too, but he just wanted to insult Ben again,” another viewer said.

EastEnders normally airs Monday to Thursday at 19:30 on BBC One.
