Ben Mitchell furiously confronts Luke Wilmott-Brown after shock discovery of mum Kathy Beale’s rape on Eastenders

BEN Mitchell’s angry side well and truly came out on tonight’s episode of Eastenders following the shock discovery his boyfriend’s dad had raped mum Kathy.

The troubled Ben finds it hard to compute what he’s being told, and the shock sends him reeling as he discovers what his parents Phil and Kathy have been hiding for so long.

 Ben was left fuming at his parents as he discovered the truth Ben was left fuming at his parents as he discovered the truth

He’s particularly mad at dad Phil for keeping the secret from him all these years, and storms out of his house promising to kill the evil James Wilmott-Brown.

After taking time to calm down, he calls boyfriend Luke – asking to see him so he can confront him about what he knows about his dad’s connection to Kathy.

The next day, Phil goes to see Ben at the garage, and his son is suddenly a lot calmer about the situation – as he lays it on thick about how sons shouldn’t be judged by their fathers.

Clearly hurt by the comments, which also included a dig at Phil’s own abusive father, Phil walks away.

However, when Luke later meets Ben, he is livid to discover that Luke actually knew all about the rape, and had kept it a secret from him as well.

“My dad went to prison, of course I knew,” said Luke, before adding: “When I met you I had no idea you were Kathy’s son.

“Besides, what our parents get up to hasn’t got anything to do with us.”

 Luke later admits he knew his dad raped his mum - but tried to brush it off Luke later admits he knew his dad raped his mum – but tried to brush it off  Ben admits he wanted to kill Luke's dad, James Ben admits he wanted to kill Luke's dad, James  Luke then offered Ben the chance to meet his dad - will he accept?

His final comment sent Luke into a rage, saying that rape wasn’t “what his parents got up to” and was offended at the insinuation that the moment was consensual.

Revealing that when he found out he wanted to kill Luke’s dad, the businessman made him an offer – James wanted to meet up the son of his rape victim.

Will Ben say yes?
