EastEnders star reveals Callum's heartbreak over Whitney's wedding rage

05/02/2021

Given that her own wedding fell apart as a result of Callum Highway’s (Tony Clay) love for Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) has been surprisingly forgiving of the pair – recognising that they belong together in EastEnders and being one of their biggest supporters.

But things have changed of late following the death of Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) at the hands of depraved killer Gray Atkins (Toby Alexander-Smith).

A grieving Whitney blames Ben and Phil (Steve McFadden) for what happened to Kush, as he was trying to make a getaway from Walford at the time, having gone back on his deal to take the rap for the crimes of the Mitchells.

And actor Tony has revealed that Whitney’s lack of support could play a factor in the wedding day, adding that losing her friendship over this has hit the character hard after what they have been through.

The Callum actor sighed to Metro.co.uk: ‘It does break his heart a little bit but there it a total understanding of where she is at and what they have been through in the past.

‘Ultimately, Whitney thinks he is making a mistake and you will see conversations between them around that. She’s got some lovely stuff coming up that’s really interesting – her reaction to it all will be interesting.

‘Callum feels like Ben has changed and everything is different – he knows deep down things the Mitchells won’t do. It puts him in a bit of a position between Whitney and Ben.’

But while Whitney is no longer manifesting a happy wedding day for Ballum, Tony is convinced that things will be good for the couple if they get married.

He smiled: ‘They work really well together, I love working with Max and it would bring them together – going forward, they’d make more of a force. It’s no longer about Callum chasing after Ben and wondering what he’s done – and that’s enjoyable for us that they deal with each other’s problems now.

‘It would be a case of ‘we’re all in now – you’ve done something, I want us to face this head on together.’ That’s a really important dynamic moving forwards if they are to make it.’
