Ben Mitchell Returning to Walford

And yep, you guessed it... he'll be played by another new actor, Max Bowden the sixth person to take on this role.


This spring, there’s drama in store for the Mitchells as Ben makes a dramatic return to Albert Square and he won’t be alone as he will be joined by Lola and their daughter, Lexi.


Max Bowden will be taking on the role of Ben Mitchell, a character that just like his father never seems to be far from trouble.


During his previous time in the Square, Ben was at the heart of many storylines including killing Heather Trott, his turbulent relationship with his father, Phil, and faking his relationship with Abi Branning to hide his sexuality.


On top of this, Ben had to cope with losing his one true love, Paul Coker, after they were both involved in an unprovoked homophobic attack.
