EastEnders has aired a heartwarming reunion for Ben and Callum in light of this week's tragic events in Walford.

This week's episodes have seen Lola Pearce and her extended family facing the realities of her diagnosis with Glioblastoma Multiforme, an aggressive form of cancer in the form of a brain tumour.

Thursday's (October 27) episode saw Ben and Callum bonding once again as they tried to support Lexi through the realisation that her mum had cancer.

The two took Lola's daughter to visit her at the hospital and had a few moments to catch up. When Ben met up with Jay, his friend stopped short of revealing that Lola's cancer may be incurable.

Jay did break down in Ben's arms as he shared his regrets about all of the lost time he'd missed with Lola being "pig-headed" about their relationship in the past.

His words spurred Ben to make things right with Callum, so he surprised his husband outside his window with his own declaration.

"I don't want to waste any more time," Ben announced. "Look, I've been stupid. I've been stubborn. I've pushed you and said things that, quite frankly, I don't mean. I still love you."

Ben thought Callum had rejected him when he abruptly shut his window, but was delighted when Callum soon arrived downstairs with an announcement of his own.

"I never stopped loving you. You know that," Callum assured his husband.

Callum then pulled Ben into a romantic clinch and they shared a kiss, as Ben cried happy tears in his husband's arms.

The fan-favoruite couple's reunion comes as Lola's family will need to rally around her before she has emergency surgery next week.

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
