EastEnders fans spot surprising connection to Holby City in Ben Mitchell scenes

It’s been a few months since Holby City sadly disappeared from the screens, but the incredible setting created especially for the series has reappeared in EastEnders!

During this week’s episodes, Ben Mitchell (played by Max Bowden) and Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) visited the local sexual health hospital.

Ben was nervously awaiting the results of his HIV test following his brutal sexual assault.

During the scene, fans took to Twitter when they noticed the interior of the clinic looked very familiar.

RadioTimes.com can confirm that the set was in fact the same as used in Holby City.

One fan on Twitter wrote: “I’m 99% sure this is the old Holby City #EastEnders set.”

Another said: ‘Holby lives on as Walford General.

A third shared, “Omg I thought it was, but then I thought I was imagining it.”

Meanwhile, for Ben, things will only get worse for him as his mental health continues to deteriorate following his ordeal.

Over the coming week, Ben will turn to drugs to help him cope with what he’s been through and all his simmering emotions.

But it becomes too much and he collapses, pulseless. Is he dead?
