Simon, his ex-boyfriend and murderer, appealed against his conviction.
He was also released from prison
Ben was devastated and quickly shared the news with Callum Highway (Tony Clay).
Callum was clearly struggling to see his lover in such pain. He offered his support and tried to calm him down.
Ben was furious, believing that this is a payback for the murder of Jags Panesar (Amar Adatia) which viewers will see was committed to death in prison on the same day Ben ended his protection.
Ben refused to follow Callum's rules and instead made it clear that his goal was revenge.
Callum offered a solution and said he would use his position as a police officer to find out all he could about the killer.
