EastEnders fans in fits of laughter as Ben and Callum clash in proposal gaffe

EASTENDERS fans couldn’t contain their laughter last night as Ben Mitchell and Callum Highway clashed last night in a huge proposal blunder.

The hilarious gaffe aired after Ben spent hours with his daughter Lexi planning the most romantic proposal ever.

But Callum nearly ruined everything before Ben even had the chance to pop the big question.

As the couple bumped into each other in the Square, Ben tried to rush off and told his boyfriend to meet him at the Prince Albert where the proposal was supposed to be taking place.

But Callum suddenly became nostalgic for the first days of their romance and their first kiss – and got down on one knee. 

Ben looked horrified as Callum proposed, shouting “No, no no!” and telling him Lexi was going to kill him.

Callum was baffled by Ben's odd behaviour but all became clear when he reached The Prince Albert and Ben shouted down at him from the balcony, waving a bunch of flowers. 

The couple then proposed to each other at the same time in emotional scenes and said yes – much to Lexi’s delight.

Viewers flocked to Twitter in fits of laughter at the proposal gaffe. 

One tweeted: "@bbceastenders good episode tonight. Ben was hilarious."

Another added: "Omg this is f***ing hilarious. #Ballum #EastEnders."

A third amused viewer said: "Lexi is f***ing hilarious. Brilliant little actress #eastenders."

Ben managed to botch his proposal earlier this week after suggesting to Callum that they should go to the registry office to get married, so that Callum can be put on the list to pick Lexi up from school. 

Callum was far from impressed by Ben’s unimaginative proposal, leading Lola and Lexi to step in and give Ben some much needed advice.
