    BEN THERE DONE THAT Ben Mitchell returning to EastEnders with SIXTH actor taking the role named as former Waterloo Road star Max Bowden The actor, 24, who has also appeared in Casualty and Doctors, will begin filming on the BBC1 soap this week EXCLUSIVE By Andy Halls, TV Editor 20th January 2019, 9:03 pm Updated: 20th January 2019, 9:04 pm EASTENDERS favourite Ben Mitchell is returning to the soap after being written out just over a year ago – with a SIXTH actor now taking on the role. The character was first introduced in 1996 and was last played by Harry Reid, but will now be portrayed by former Waterloo Road star Max Bowden. BBC 4 Max Bowden, the former Waterloo Road star, is to play Ben Mitchell in EastEnders The actor, 24, who has also appeared in Casualty and Doctors, will begin filming on the BBC1 soap this week. He will reappear in Walford alongside fellow returning character Lola, played by Danielle Harold, and their daughter Lexi. A TV source said: “Ben is a really popular character among EastEnders fans and has been at the heart of some of the biggest storylines in recent years. “It’ll take viewers a bit of time to get used to another face playing him, but they’ve had plenty of practice over the years when it comes to his character.” 4 The five previous Ben Mitchells: Matthew Silver (1996–1998), Morgan Whittle (1999–2001), Charlie Jones (2006–2010), Joshua Pascoe (2010–2012) and Harry Reid (2014–2018) HANDOUT 4 The last actor to play the son of Phil Mitchell was Harry Reid, here with soap stalwart Steve McFadden Max said: “I’m so excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders and taking on the role of Ben Mitchell. “ I’ve always been a fan of the show so to be joining one of the most iconic families in soap is beyond exciting. I can’t wait to get started and see what’s in store for Ben.” Ben, the son of hardman Phil Mitchell — played by stalwart Steve McFadden — was first portrayed by Matthew Silver as a baby, before Morgan Whittle took the role as a child. The most well-known portrayal of the youngster was by Charlie Jones who joined the soap when Ben was around ten after mum Kathy Beale was killed in a car crash. BBC 4 Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) with soap best pal Ben Mitchell (Harry Reid) who was written out over a year ago. He was later replaced by Joshua Pascoe, who was nominated for soap villain of the year after storylines including the kidnapping of shopkeeper Patrick Trueman, attack of Glenda Mitchell and the murder of Heather Trott before being written out in 2012. Show boss Kate Oates, who joined the BBC show after working on rival soap Coronation Street for two years, added: “A character like Ben, with his rich history, ‘complicated’ family and complex psychology, is pure gold. “With Max in the role, we will be exploring the aspects of Ben’s character that have been allowed to develop during his time away from the Square: unfettered by old loyalties. Ben Mitchell discovers that someone has stolen his Un

    Glynnis O'Connor was a terribly miscast Margo. I remember her Margo would wear ugly outfits.

    Never liked The Gemini Twins. Even by Days standards their origins were too silly. I don't remember original recipe Eric Winter/Rex very well. But this New Rex might as well be a different person. I liked KL as Brady. As Rex his awful. Here's a clip with Rex & Mimi. Makes me sad seeing the beautiful Tuscany set filled with tons of extra's. If this was modern era Days they would be at an empty HTS.

    I loved Sheila's flashbacks scenes with Xander. Everything else was boring.

    Days: Leo's Mom

    John having two gay sons is a bit much. But Ron loves to do stuff like that.

    Will & Sonny giving each other chaste pecks on the lips. While hiding from Leo was silly. Poor JJ is stuck with Haley. Who shows no signs of a personality. Must they always make Abe so insufferable? Leo continues to be a blast to watch. Whether trying to have sex with Xander or making fun of Sonny's suit. Sarah has way more chemistry with Xander. Then she does with Eric & Rex.

    The gold sack Abby had on was hideous.

    The Doctors

    Marland inherited an interesting story. Which he dragged out. Sadly it all ended in a whimper.

    Leo lusting after a half naked Xander was the only interesting thing. Everything else was boring. Sonny ''hiding out'' with Will in public from Leo. While giving Will passionless kisses

    I'm curious to see how far he takes it. This is going to be a lot of queer baiting. I strongly doubt Days is really going there Wouldn't mind if they did. This might be fun for awhile. Until they run it to the ground.
