After weeks of will they? won’t they?, is he?, isn’t he?, Ben Mitchell and Johnny Carter finally share a smooch.
After an exposive scene last week, where Ben Mitchell called Johnny a ‘fag’ and a ‘dirty queer’ it seems that Ben finally admits his feelings for Johnny (Sam Strike) and goes in for a kiss.
The pair who have been flirting in an awkward off and on again way have had numerous public spats, including a scene at a Halloween party, when Ben furiously (Harry Reid) told Johnny that he wasn’t gay.
The episode is due to air next week on the 28th November 2014.
Known to all EastEnders’ fans as Johnny Carter, Sam Strike has decided to break from the show saying, ‘Thanks for all the love this year guys. Means the world. Decided to bow out. Couldn’t have done it without you all. Thanks @bbceastenders.’
‘And of course tremendous love to my Carter family. True love.’
