Emotional roller coaster
Fans of the BBC One soap didn’t like having their emotions toyed with
EASTENDERS viewers had their emotions toyed with on Tuesday night as Ben Mitchell and Johnny Carter enjoyed a one night stand.
The characters of the hit BBC One soap were brought together as Ben (played by Harry Reid) celebrated turning 21 with a huge house party that had all his mates and more in attendance.
Abi Branning was also there and was trying to instigate a bit of love between the two gentlemen as the party got into full swing and the alcohol was flowing.
And despite the boys declaring they were not attracted to each other, by the end of the night, they were in bed with one another.

Fans of the pair were beyond delighted as it had been hoped by some viewers that the two would find love together.
“No one understands how happy I am that Ben and Johnny hooked up,” one thrilled fan wrote on Twitter.
“Ben and Johnny saved 2017 soap for me let it be known,” wrote another.
While another fan gushed: “swear ive waited for ben and johnny for 294894 years.”
Alas, as is the case for many who have been in a similar situation to Ben and Johnny, the morning after a drunken fumble can lead to a different perspective and it seems the lads decided they were better off as friends than lovers.

In an awkward chat down Kath’s Café, Ben and Johnny realised their night of love was more a night of drunken lust than anything else.
And then Ben declared Johnny (played by Ted Reilly) was too “square” for him to consider dating seriously.
However Johnny immediately declared he could be corrupted and, following a series of dares, proved to convicted killer Ben that he could be a bad boy too by stealing cutlery and a traffic cone.
With the lad’s cheeky antics, it seemed there could only be friendship ahead – and some viewers were distraught by the U-Turn in emotions.
“Is the Ben and Johnny relationship already ending?” asked one disappointed fan.
“Ben and Johnny are just Friends,” wrote another alongside a distraught emoji.
While another also implemented the use of a sad face emoji with the comment: “bish I was excited for ben and johnny and now…”
EastEnders WILL return with more action on Thursday at 7.30pm – with the explosive reveal of Michelle Fowler and Preston Cooper’s illegal affair likely to be the centre of all the drama.
