what do you think of Ben Mitchell?

I think they could have picked a better actor to play a Mitchell, they are trying to make him be this little rebel child but it just doesn't suit him at all, i thought Cortney made a great Mitchell, who else thinks they should bring Grant and Cortney bak?

Awh I actually think he's a real cutie although he's undergone a huge personality change since he first arrived.

I agree. I am not sure who Ben is really meant to be - like you said he is supposed to be a rebel but it doesnt suit him. I think this is becasue he is too quiet to be a rebel. He is a bit weak. Courtney was much better - she had a bit of spark about her. They should definately bring her and Grant back as it makes Eastenders much more interesting when Phil and Grant are together.

I thought that actually. He started off being nice and a bit geeky and now they're trying to make him all Mitchell-ified but it doesn't work. Maybe if he had come in straight away like that then we might not have noticed but he was this shy and quiet little thing when he first turned up. I definitely think Courtney made a better Mitchell.

Cortney was a cool character. They should use a chavvy kid, like Berts grandson, to play Ben as it would suit him better.

i agree with you i think they could have chosen a better child to portray this little monster. the young lad they have picked is to innocent looking he cant play the bad boy like his dad and sruggles with the nasty bits. the mitchells are losing their image and we all loved them for being so horrible to everyone but even phil is losing his touch i think bringing grant back would be fab as he always was the naughty one and thought nothing of beating someone to a pulp if they looked at him the wrong way lol.

I like Ben as far as a character goes but dont think he is a suitable Mitchell as they are like the Corleone's in the Godfather and Ben looks like he belongs in the Waltons. I totally agree that they should bring bk Grant and Courtney even if to annoy Mr Beale!
