EastEnders spoilers: Is Ben Mitchell DEAD? Harry Reid breaks silence on shock exit

In recent episodes, viewers seen how the mechanic double-crossed his father Phil (played by Steve McFadden) to steal the money and jewellery from the New Year’s Day heist. 

The youngster then planned to run away from Watford by legging it across the English Channel to Calais. 

But the recently returned Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite) was waiting for Ben (Harry Reid) on the ferry and warned him he would be killed if he stepped off the boat.

However, he ignored her warning and decided to leave anyway.

Mel could then be seen calling crime boss Ciara Maguire (Denise McCormack), who was waiting for the teen. 

Viewers have been left in the dark as to whether or not Ciara killed Ben or if he managed to escape and could return to Albert Square.

Following his exit from the soap, actor Harry has broken his silence on his departure and thanked fans for their support. 

“Hello everyone, just a quick message,” he said in a video posted to Instagram before the episode aired. 

“I wanted to say a few words because my last episode is going on air in 10 minutes. 

“I just wanted to say thank you really, thank you to everyone who’s been supporting me during my time on EastEnders.”

“To the fan groups and all the collages they’ve done and the videos,” he continued.

“You know everyone on here on Instagram and Twitter – on all social media that’s really documented my time on there and I really appreciate it.”

Harry did not confirm whether or not his character has been killed off so fans should remain hopeful that he could return in future.
