EastEnders is lining up some potentially deadly scenes for Ben and Phil Mitchell, as they get themselves caught up in Danny Hardcastle's dodgy dealings.

A special point of view episode follows Ben, on the day of the job that he and his dad have been building up to.

But it could leave him in serious danger, as spoilers have confirmed a gun is pulled on him.

The entire episode, to air on Monday 1st June, will be completely from the deaf character's perspective, giving viewers the chance to experience what he hears and how he communicates.

Ben recently lost almost all of his hearing in a boat crash, and the operation he was hoping would fix things has been cancelled.

Amid his desperation, the character has been determined to work on the job with his dad - keen to impress him and the others.

But as events quickly spiral out of control, will he pay the ultimate price?

Speaking ahead of the special episode, Max promised "great" scenes for viewers while revealing the "pressure" of being in every scene.

He said: "I definitely felt more pressure, no cut away shot to focus that on anyone else!

"It's the most rewarding thing ever, you feel like you're making your own movie.

"The directors worked with me on my first big scenes in Waterloo Road a few years ago so it was a lovely full circle moment of coming back to doing another big episode together.

"We met several times to discuss what we wanted to achieve out of the episode and how we wanted to approach it.

"There's definitely more pressure but artistically we had a lot more freedom to try things and the creative team were so brilliant - exploring cinematography and new ways of showing perspective."

He went on: "It was great - it was so intense as I was on set all the time. It's the most focused and driven I've ever been on an episode.

"The pressure was on to get it right so the whole thing was a whirlwind experience.

"I'd love to watch back the process of making it all again, it was so exciting."
