Callum Highway is set to have a proposition for Ben Mitchell amid the Lola Pearce cancer storyline on EastEnders.

Lola was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer called Glioblastoma Multiforme, with Ben and Callum bonding again as they support daughter Lexi over her mother's diagnosis.

Scenes airing last week saw Ben inspired to make things right with Callum after having an emotional encounter with Jay over Lola's prognosis.

Surprising his husband outside his window, Ben declared: "I don't want to waste any more time. 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."

Callum then came down and told his husband: "I never stopped loving you. You know that," before the pair embraced happily.

In new scenes set to air next week, Callum suggests that Ben tells Lexi the truth about Lola's likely incurable prognosis, though Ben's priorities remain researching possible treatment options.

Everyone rallies around Lola later at the hospital, before Callum suggests that Ben move back in with him so they can support Lexi. Lola is left touched by the support.

Speaking previously about the powerful exit storyline for her character, Lola actress Danielle Harold said: "It means so much to be trusted with a storyline like this – one that's close to many people's hearts.

"Sadly many of our viewers will be able to relate to Lola's story and it's been heartbreaking to speak to the families affected by brain tumours and hear their stories. They've been so amazing in sharing their experiences with me, and I'm so lucky to have them. I wouldn't be able to do this storyline without their support."

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