As reported last week, Ben will soon be brought into the police station for questioning by DCI Marsden (Sophie Stanton) - who has re-opened the investigation into Stella Crawford's death in a bid to bring down Phil once and for all.
A nervous Ben (Joshua Pascoe) doesn't give DCI Marsden any new information when she asks him what he knows about Stella's 2007 suicide. Despite this, Marsden is reluctant to give up and asks Ben to call her if he remembers anything else - as she's particularly keen to know whether Phil has ever revealed what he said to Stella before she jumped.
Later, more trouble brews at the Mitchell household when Phil offers Jay a ticket to a boxing match and not Ben - making him feel left out.
However, Ben's relationship with his father soon seems to be looking up when he and Jay (Jamie Borthwick) finish work on the old banger car that Shirley recently presented them with. When the pair show Phil (Steve McFadden) the revamped car, it's a happy moment for the family as he's genuinely pleased with their hard work.
However, when Ben is allowed to drive, he stalls the car and a jeering Phil publicly humiliates him by ordering Jay to take over instead. Feeling left out by Phil one time too often, a furious Ben makes contact with DCI Marsden and announces that he now wants to change his statement.
Ben has already caused a whole heap of trouble for Phil with his stalker antics - but what will he say to Marsden? And what will the consequences be for his father this time?
