EASTENDERS fans are convinced Ben Mitchell has killed Peter Beale after his horror assault went wrong.
The mechanic – who is played by actor Max Bowden in the BBC soap – has been carrying out revenge attacks on homophobes for months now.
And in tonight’s episode he got one delivered to his doorstep when he overheard the man mocking Ben’s husband Callum.
Ben was dragged away by Lewis, but kept stewing in his rage.
But after the homophobe kept coming back to spread more poison, Ben decided to act.
It took him a long time of waiting – and several cocktails – but when Ben spotted the man passing again he followed.

Chasing him into an alley, Ben brutally attacked the man.
But when he gave him another kicking and turned his body over Ben was horrified to see that he hadn’t attacked the homophobe.
Instead he had just attacked his nephew Peter Beale who was also wearing a red hoody.
Peter lay lifeless on the ground covered in blood.
EastEnders fans are terrified Ben has killed him.
