They’re officially engaged! So now talk must turn to the future of beloved EastEnders couple Callum Highway (Tony Clay) and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden).
And while many fans are hoping for a long engagement as they would rather see a wedding filmed without Covid distancing restrictions, Tony reckons EastEnders has what it takes to be as authentic as possible, even if the measures are still in place.
Confirming he doesn’t know when a wedding will take place, he explained that the story of EastEnders has to keep moving and he believes there will be a lot of ways around it to ensure that the scenes are what fans can hope for.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, he shared: ‘Even with restrictions in place, we’re making really good telly at the moment. In an ideal world, we’d love to do it without restrictions but we just don’t know.
‘You want to keep things going in the show and marriage opens up new avenues in their relationships. I actually honestly don’t know, it’s exciting for me too. We can definitely have a wedding with Covid restrictions, we’ve done some great stuff.
‘Danny and Simone’s stuff was beautifully done and Rose has been fantastic. Danny and Rose at the tube station was really beautiful work.’
Fans are on a high after seeing Ben and Callum commit to an engagement in loving and uplifting scenes – and Tony reckons there could be some scenes of joy ahead.
He smiled: ‘There’s massive excitement – throughout all the tough times and all they have had to deal with, it seems things might work out. Whatever happens in the future will happen but for now they’re looking forward, in a really lovely place and a lovely upward trajectory. And as actors it’s lovely to portray these more loving moments.
‘I think it can’t all just be arguing constantly all the time, there has to be a balance between light and dark. There are lovely, everyday life scenes coming up but equally you want a bit of angst mixed in. You also want comedy too and there is that too, there’s lot to come.’
