He lashed out after Tommy found his drugs
In tonight’s episode Ben lied to his dad and insisted he wasn’t raped and then was asked to pick up stepbrother Tommy from school.
However when Ben finally arrived he dropped his drugs in front of Tommy – and the schoolboy picked them up.
But as Tommy told Ben that he wanted some football boots to keep quiet about the drugs, Ben grew furious.
Grabbing his step-brother, Ben snarled: “Give me that or I’m going to do you, do you understand?”
Tommy looked terrified and apologised.
He told Ben: “It’s alright I get it, I’ve done some stupid stuff myself.
“What do you need that stuff for anyway? Do yourself a favour and bin it.”
In an effort to keep Tommy quiet, Ben then took him to get some new football boots.
“A hundred quid for football boots?” said Ben as they arrived back at the Mitchells.
“I know dad was moaning about me and dance routines but I must have saved him a few bob, eh?
“Listen I promise I will give up that stuff but you’ve got to promise me something as well.
“Work hard and carry on with your football – we don’t want you to end up like me, do we?”
Ben got away with his lies with Phil falling for it all.
But viewers were disgusted with him for threatening Tommy.
One wrote: “Did Ben just grab Tommy? Now he’s trying to bribe him with new soccer shoes. ”
A second said: “Sorry but Ben lashing out at Tommy was disgusting so much for wanting to “Protect him” ”
Another added: “Ben seems high in front of Tommy . What would Kat say about that?”
