EastEnders fans in stitches as Ben mocks Phil over steamy Kat Slater romance

EastEnders viewers were left in hysterics on Tuesday evening as Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) finally found out about his dad Phil's (Steve McFadden) romance with Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).

Ben found out himself in a spot of bother earlier this week when crook Stas (Adam Young) found out the Mitchell family had been taking the mick out of him behind his back.

The young mechanic admitted to saying the words and Stas decided to pull out of his agreement with the bad boy and his business partner Kheerat Panaser.

After making up, Ben later asked Stas who had stitched him and his dad up.

The camera panned over to the Queen Vic, where Kat Slater was seen stepping out of the pub.

"It was her," Stas revealed.

Ben told Phil that Kat snitched on them to Stas at the start of the latest episode of the BBC One soap but he didn't get the reaction he expected.

Instead Phil remained cool, calm and collected and explained that Kat told Stas because she overheard them mocking her.

Ben was determined to get his own back on Kat but Phil warned him away from the fiesty Slater sister because he was "seeing her".

Viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss Ben's hilarious reaction as he mocked his father's choice in women.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Ben's reaction to the Kat reveal….priceless."

A second person posted: "Ben's reaction to the Kat news was amazing. Callum's reaction was everything."

Another added: "Ben and Callum's reaction to Phil and Kat was so funny."

While a fourth social media user said: "Great performance from @MaxBowden made me laugh seeing Ben’s reaction to finding out that Phil is seeing Kat Slater."

"Ben and Callum having the same reaction to Phil seeing Kat. Classic," a fifth viewer wrote.

A sixth person said: "Okay I don't like Ben but his reaction on finding out his dad is seeing Kat was hilarious!"

Ben asked Phil: "How would she know about Stas? We need to over to Slater towers now and find out."

Phil replied: "No, don't even think about it because i'm seeing her."

A gobsmacked Ben responded: "This has got to be a wind up ain't it? Talk about the scraping the bottom of the barrel."

Callum walked in as Ben and Phil rowed over Kat and he also shared a smirk when he heard the news about Phil's latest love interest.
