Ben has struggled to gain his dad's respect. He knew he wouldn't receive too much understanding when he came out to his dad, but Phil's reluctance to engage with the subject hurt Ben deeply.

Ben might have seemed mild-mannered in the past, but it's always the quiet ones... He's been strong enough to survive every sling and arrow that comes with being Phil’s son. He's been kidnapped by Martin, tasked with stopping Phil from killing Archie and has endured abuse from Phil's unstable lover Stella.

It can't be easy being Phil Mitchell's son, but with his criminal antics, dubious morals and having served a prison sentence for manslaughter after killing Heather, Ben may be more of a chip off the old block than his father realises...
