The secret's finally out of the bag… Ben has come clean to Heather (and the rest of the Square) that he IS Kevin68. Poor Hev.

That was the problem with Hev's internet dating experience - she never knew if she was having a real romance!

Broken-hearted Hev goes off on one tonight for being "stupid old Heather" and believing someone could possibly love her. Both Ben and Hev's friendship will surely be on rocky grounds.

Heather and Ben

Hev and Ben take up their positions for a new dance routine to 'Freedom'

Isn't it weird how throughout their 'web affair' the two may find they have much more in common than they think.

Let's just do a quick tick list of why it might be worth saving their friendship:

  1. Both like soppy films (check)
  2. Enjoy eighties music (check)
  3. Love a Cheddar and pickle sarnie (check)
  4. Both feel alone (check!)

But the real question we want to know is... what has Ben really been playing at? A closer look into one of Kevin68's emails (now just schoolboy Ben) *thumbs down* will surely give us a clue:

"It's so easy to feel lonely even if you're in a crowded place. I feel the same. Doesn't matter how many people are about, it's like you're invisible. It's good to talk about it. Perhaps we can heal the pain together."

Hev may have her Freedom, but will her friendship with Ben take a turn for the worse? What do you think?

    Ben absolutely had no right to do what he did to Heather, and living with Phil plus being inside changed him into quite a horrible and scary person.
    But Heather changed as well, after she gave birth to her baby with Darren. She is a mother, but that`s not her priority, all she does is moaning about men not wanting her. She slapped Denise (for what, really?) and lost her job, all very well, but how she is gonna provide for George now? She is just gonna rely on Darren or Shirley, as usual - she is sure everyone ows her. I can`t believe how clingy she is, as well. That is not attractive at all. In a word - bring back the old Heather!

    erm why are people discussing other things in ee when this is about heather / ben? there is a weekly one for that.

    I really liked the heather / ben stuff in tonights ep. Well mainly the ben/phil/shirley scenes. Joshua was really good in that last scene and i knew i was right that ben didnt have a personality change. he was trying to change to please phil

    At Mirjam, I think things r going 2 go wrong wiv Fatboy and Mercy coz Mercy's leaving ee

    And, oh seriously Heather how thick are you, I'm sorry but I have to say that no offence. I think Ben was only dating Heather on the internet coz he was feelin lonely and needed someone 2 talk to and wanted to talk about the fact that he was getting bullied

    I think that Ben did really mean well. I reckon that he felt like that he could connect with Heather as both them are feeling lonely. I think Ben is just putting on a brave face because he's a Mitchell. I am really starting to like Ben. I think Heather will realise that Ben needed her as well, just like she needed Kevin! Loving Fatboy and Mercy...sooooo sweet!!

    Ya, but does Mercy love Fat Boy, I see him getting hurt. I don't care for Mercy. She had her eyes on the other guy and only got with F.B. after he dumped her and was getting booted out of the country. her lips are too big for his. He desearves better

    I am sure she will forgive Ben. I think that Ben only wanted to make Heather's day when he invented Kevin68. Heather was on that datingsite and was disappointed when there was no mail. And Ben tought he had the answer and so Kevin68 was born.
    Ben didn't think of the consequences when he started mailing to Heather as Kevin68 and when things got out of hand it was too late.
    But Ben's intentions are good! And I am sure that Heather will see sense.
    Heather is lonely and single and has been disappointed in love, remember Minty? And now she is very desperate to find a man. And that is the reason why the digital Kevin68-affair got out of hand.

    There is also a warning in this storyline; Be carefull when your online chatting or mailing to someone because you never know who is on the 'other side'. Everyone can put a nice picture on a profile on a dating site and dig up a nice story, but you can never be sure if it is true or not.

    For Ishtiab Kahn: Thanks for letting me know about Mercy. I didn't know that she's leaving the show. I live in the Netherlands so don't know all the latest news.... Unfortunately. So, yes, Fatboy WILL get hurt. Aaaaahhhh.... Hope he finds another nice girl.

    Heather has already forgiven Ben.

    She adores him and although she appears to be a bit dim, is sensible enough to have the foresight to have recognised that what Ben had written was his way of expressing the hurt he has in his own life.

    Heather will become the Mother figure that he needs in his life.

    Together they will grow and get their lives back on track.

    Both Ben and Heather will no doubt be in continual contact with each other whilst Ben is staying with his Grandmother.
