EASTENDERS fans are convinced there’s trouble in the air for Ben Mitchell and Callum Highway as Lee Carter makes his shock return to the soap.
The theory comes as the soap bosses revealed character Lee would be making a comeback on the show as his parents Mick and Linda struggle to keep it together.

And now, fans are certain Lee’s return to Walford Square won’t be without its drama.
Taking to Twitter, viewers speculated the character would intervene with Ben and Callum’s love affair.

While a third believed Lee’s links to other characters would no doubt cause a rift, saying: “Lee’s return to eastenders opens up SO much drama. you have the obvious carter stuff but also him and whitney seeing each other again, him finding out his best friend was engaged to whitney but is gay and cheated on whitney with ben, who he hates and who gave him chlamydia.”
Lee’s return to the soap follows hot on the heels of Callum and Ben’s love affair coming to the light.
Despite a rocky start, Ben and Callum appear to be back on track as they lined up a potential date during an emotional episode last week.

“Yeah, I reckon that might be all right,” Callum said blushing.
