In ecstatic EastEnders scenes, Ben Mitchell has called off his marriage to Callum.

After a shocking episode, Ben finally revealed to his husband about being raped by Lewis, after months of hiding the truth.

Ben had decided to file a police complaint against Lewis, yet he was caught off guard when Callum entered the interview room.

Callum begged his estranged husband to reveal if anyone had hurt him once he realized Ben was the one filing a complaint.

Ben said he'd "tried to stop him," and Callum soon realized it was Lewis. After sharing the story, Callum told Ben, "To think I could have lost you, and because of him."

Ben admitted to Callum that he didn't tell him because he didn't know if his husband would approve. Callum kneeped to his knees to apologize, insisting that he didn't care if they were being monitored on CCTV.

Callum waited outside while Ben had his preliminary interview to report the rape. Later, Callum offered to go with Ben for his second statement the following week, but Ben wasn't sure.

When Jay suggested Ben and Callum "sort everything out now," it appeared like Ben was hesitant.

Ben admitted to Callum that Lewis wasn't the reason for their split in the park; they'd "fallen apart" long before he arrived on the scene.

"You want the Sunday afternoons in bed, picking wallpaper, and arguing over trash TV," Ben told his husband. "I wanted that and everything, please.

"It just ain't in me."

Ben gently explained that they were "out of chances" when Callum offered to do anything for "one more chance."

"I'm sorry. It's all over," Ben said.
