EastEnders' Ben Mitchell is left convinced his husband Callum Highway is already planning to propose to someone else - his ex Whitney Dean, just weeks after their wedding.

Callum has been distant with Ben and has been spending a lot of time with Whitney instead, leaving Ben feeling neglected.

Ben then went through his husband's pocket on Wednesday's episode and found a ring, and jumping to conclusions, he believes it's for Whitney.

What Ben does not know is Callum is struggling with PTSD after witnessing his colleague, Fitzy, being stabbed, and he has opened up to Whitney about it.

And the ring is Fitzy's too - Callum is just keeping it safe while Fitzy recovers from his injuries in hospital.

And Callum took Whitney with him to visit Fitzy, with a suspicious Ben spotting them going somewhere together in a taxi.

Whitney has begged Callum to open up to Ben, but he seems desperate for Ben not to find out, telling Whitney that as long as he had her to confide it, he would be okay.

The future is now uncertain for the newlyweds - will Ben bring up the ring he found, and how will Callum react to being accused of cheating?

Spoilers reveal more heartache for Ben in future episodes when he calls off the prison protection for Jags Panesar in revenge after spotting Kheerat and Sharon flirting.

Later in the week, Callum shares his worry after Ben stays out all night - but can the pair sort things out?

Kheerat decides to cool things with Sharon, especially with his mother Suki not approving.

He soon meets up with Ben and comes clean about the romance, unaware Ben has seen them together.

As he declares they are over, he thanks Ben for looking after Jags and organising the prison protection.

Suddenly Ben appears to be struggling with guilt over recent actions, but what has he done?
