EastEnders viewers were shocked as the soap served up a huge twist – Ben Mitchell has the heist loot.

Fans of the BBC soap had been speculating about the location of the money and jewellery stolen in the New Year’s Day heist.

And their questions were answered on Monday night when Ben was seen admiring his takings.

“What the hell?? #Ben little sneak had the loot all the time!!” said one stunned fan on Twitter.

“So Ben stole the money after all! Great twist!” said another.

One surprised fan tweeted: “I didn’t see that coming. #EastEnders Ben has the money!!! When Phil finds out. So who did Ben collab with then to get the money? Billie?! Surely not?!”

“Oh my god Ben has it all wicked twist,” praised another.

Actor Harry Reid, who plays Ben, is set to leave Albert Square this year.

Viewers are now wondering whether taking the heist stash will be part of his exit storyline.

“As if it was Ben that took the money and jewellery this is definitely his exit storyline he either goes on the run or get killed,” said one.

“Guessing this is the start of Ben’s exit storyline,” said another.

:: EastEnders continues on BBC One.
