Is it me or are you now feeling sorry for Eastenders' Ben Mitchell? He's gone from annoying the hell out of me to making me want to hug him and feed him up. Not only is his big brother Ian as wet as the fish before it's battered in the chippy, he's got a father whose colour changes from grey to red depending on his mood and who uses exhaling as a form of communication. He's now got potential-step-mother-from-hell Stella. I'm even moved to say "poor kid"!
