Spoilers: Ben and Jay set Danny Hardcastle up in huge EastEnders twist

Danny Hardcastle (Paul Usher) made a return to EastEnders, but little did he know that his trip to Walford was a plan orchestrated by Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick).

Ben was horrified to discover that there was CCTV footage of him breaking into a warehouse on the night Danny carried out his big job.

With the police wanting to put Danny away, DI Thompson is attempting to track down anyone that is in cahoots with the gangster, and therefore they think the person in the footage — aka Ben — is their best bet.

As a result, Ben decided that he would, instead, give the cops what they want, and therefore he resolved to set up Danny.

With him having promised Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway (Tony Clay) that he wouldn’t get him involved, he decided to ask best pal Jay to assist with his plan.

Ben tricked Danny into coming to Walford, and he took great delight in pretending to reason with the man.

As he did so, Jay opened up the boot of Danny’s vehicle, and planted the cash from the job inside the boot.


After Danny and Ben’s little conversation, Danny returned to his car, as Jay reported him to the police.

It appears as if Ben might have got what he wants, but will this plan backfire?

EastEnders continues Thursday September 17 at 7:35pm on BBC One.
