When Ben watches on as Lewis and Callum have a seemingly close conversation, he becomes increasingly unnerved.

Fed up of being blamed for the breakdown of his relationship with Callum, Ben later tells Jay that Lewis raped him.

The pair talk about the incident, but Jay inadvertently puts doubts in Ben's mind about going to the police as planned.

Kathy then accompanies Ben to the station, but he changes his mind before they get there – worried the police won't believe him.

Deciding to take matters into this own hands, Ben sends a message to Lewis asking to meet him.

Ben waits for Lewis at The Arches, crowbar in hand. When he's a no-show, Ben storms over to The Albert and demands that Kathy tells him where Lewis lives.

Convinced that Kathy is protecting Lewis, Ben sees red and struggles to keep his rage in check.

Lewis is also riled when Kathy fires him from his job at The Albert, after what he did to Ben.

He retaliates by telling Peter that Ben is the one who attacked him.
