EastEnders' Ben Mitchell will walk into terrible danger tonight (July 18) when he gets into a fight.

Viewers have seen Ben's dad Phil grow concerned about his reckless and irresponsible behaviour this week, but things will take another worrying turn in Thursday's episode.

Having made the drastic decision to cut Ben out of his will, Phil will grow increasingly fed up of his son's reckless antics when he returns home from yet another all-nighter.

With Phil at the end of his tether, a more intuitive Lola suspects that there is more to it and forces Ben to reveal what's really going on.

Despite Lola's support though, Ben soon struggles to control his temper when he spots two men sneering at him at E20.

When Lola leaves, Ben antagonises the men – leading to a huge fight outside. As the situation quickly gets out of control, Ben is subjected to a brutal beating but will he be alright?

Thankfully, spoilers for next week show that Ben does manage to bounce back from this latest incident – but soon makes a shocking discovery about Phil and Shirley which could change everything.
