EASTENDERS’ Ben Mitchell is going to be left terrified next week when he discovers Keanu Taylor is back from the dead.
The mechanic – who is played by actor Max Bowden in the BBC soap – has no idea Keanu is actually alive after he faked his death with Martin Fowler to avoid a death sentence.
Keanu made a shock comeback to Walford on Friday night when he visited ex Sharon Watts.
He asked her to run away abroad with him and their unborn baby – before revealing he had a plan to deal with Ben.
Ben bribed Martin to murder Keanu for him – but he didn’t – and that will soon come back to haunt him next week.
When his boyfriend Callum Highway disappears, Ben’s confused and goes to find him knowing that he didn’t show at his police assessment.
But when Ben goes to check on him he’s left dumbstruck when he finds Keanu waiting in his place with a shocking demand.
Keanu demands 100,000 before issuing a chilling threat if Ben tells anyone.
Fearing for Callums safety, Ben wastes no time in confronting Martin and as the truth comes out, they both realise the gravity of the situation.
Meanwhile Callum finds himself in terrible danger as Keanu proves to Ben hes not to be messed with in his quest for revenge and cash for a new life.
As the week goes on Ben struggles with the mounting pressure and it doesnt go unnoticed by his mum Kathy.
Keanu pays Ben a visit and piles the pressure on but as he leaves, Ben breaks down but will he give Keanu what he wants?
Or will Ballum be over forever?
