BEN Mitchell issued Kat Slater a stark warning about her cousin Stacey in last night's episode of EastEnders – but will he go as far as to reveal who really attacked his dad Phil?
Walford's hard nut Phil finally got to the bottom of the truth about what happened the night he was left for dead after grilling Kat Slater about his son.
Fans of the BBC One soap saw a horrified Phil find out that his own son deliberately didn’t call an ambulance when he found him unconscious in The Arches.
Following the revelation, the recovering alcoholic headed to the Minute Mart and bought two bottles of vodka before threatening to drink again if Ben didn't own up to the truth.
In some emotional scenes Ben confessed that he had returned to Walford to fleece Phil.
The mechanic then sent his son packing, telling him he never wanted to see him again.
But one thing Ben chose to keep to himself was that it wasn’t Kat who dealt the almost-fatal-blow, but, her cousin Stacey Fowler.
A vengeful Ben then headed round to the Slater household – which must feel like a mansion these days with only Kat, Jean and Mo rattling around in there now – to tell Kat that he still has the wrench Stacey used to cave Phil’s head in with.
Reminding her that it’s Stacey’s prints not hers that the wrench is covered with, Ben warned Kat that her cousin better stay away – pretty harsh considering her mum, Jean, is currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.
So while the Kat stays in the bag for now, there is a huge possibility that Ben will reveal to both Phil – and the police – that Stacey is the real attacker.
And if previous soap secrets are anything to go by, it's unlikely that this will stay secret for long.
Meanwhile, Ben’s now also got a good bargaining chip to get Martin Fowler back in Walford to do his dirty work for him.
Actress Lacey Turner is currently off on maternity leave after giving birth to her first baby, Dusty, last month and will not return to Walford for a little while.
This means her soap family will more than likely be left to deal with the consequences of her actions in the meantime.
But James Bye – who plays Martin – has returned to filming, so fans can expect to see him back on their TV screens soon.
The fruit and veg flogger went on the run with wife Stacey after she bashed Phil Mitchell over the head and left him for dead when he attacked Martin.
