CALLUM looks set to be caught between his secret lover and his old man.
As Walford’s latest groom-to-be, it was only a matter of time before more of Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway’s family arrived in EastEnders.
Fans have already been introduced to his sociopath brother, Stuart, and next week sees the arrival of their dad, Jonno.
As Callum’s plans to tie the knot with girlfriend Whitney Dean get underway, she grills him about inviting his parents to the wedding.
But it soon becomes clear that Callum – who’s played by Tony Clay in the BBC soap – doesn’t want to talk about them.
Instead, Whit turns to Stuart who urges Callum to think about it and – after talking to Whit and Stuart again – Callum makes the decision to reach out to his dad.
The next day, Callum is apprehensive as he prepares to meet Jonno.
When his nerves look like they will get the better of him, he accepts an encouraging pep talk from Jay Brown.
When they meet as Walford East later, Jonno – Hollywood star Richard Graham – effortlessly charms Whitney.
With things going well, Callum invites his dad to the wedding but things soon start to go downhill when Jonno begins to question Callum’s career choices.
Later in the week, Whitney uses Callum as a model for her Pride shirts.
When Stuart arrives and suggest the brothers spend some time together, Callum feels awkward and makes excuses, leaving Stuart upset.
Despite letting his brother down, Callum finds himself going for a drink at the Vic with Jonno.
Callum is horrified when secret lover Ben Mitchell arrives and starts subtly antagonising Jonno.
As Mick Carter – Danny Dyer – warns him that his dad’s trouble, Callum is alarmed when he realises Jonno has followed Ben into the gents.
Meanwhile, in the loos, Jonno and Ben quickly come to blows.
Jonno is soon left seething and storms out of the pub with Callum in tow.
Later, Ben and Callum meet up and talk about the day’s dramatic events.
