As well as the market stall trader knowing the real fate of his victim, Keanu’s mother Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) and Queen Vic landlady Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) are aware of the situation.
It’s yet to be revealed if Ben will make the shock discovery on the week itself or in the lead up to it, so viewers will have to keep their eyes peeled as to how the Walford heartthrob returns.
Speaking of the anniversary episodes, executive producer Jon Sen said: “For the 35th anniversary, we wanted to entertain the EastEnders audience on the iconic river which has heralded the start of the show for 35 years.
“This unmissable week of episodes is destined to be exciting, gripping and heart-breaking – it will be a week that will go down in EastEnders history.”
EastEnders continues Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
