Charlie Jones is no longer the sensitive teen he portrayed in Walford
It’s hard to believe, but the current Ben Mitchell in EastEnders is actually the fifth actor to portray the character.
Whilst we’re a huge fan of Harry Reid, our favourite Ben will always be Charlie Jones, who played Phil Mitchell’s son when he was going through his tap dancing phase from 2006 to 2010.
According to his Twitter, these days Charlie Jones is an ‘actor currently training at ALRA.’
Surely playing a sensitive teen with in the tough world that is Walford is more than enough training, but what do we know?

Charlie portrayed Ben when he was Peggy’s stage star and also when he was tormented at the hands of Phil’s evil girlfriend Stella and thus began abusing Louise as a result.
Two more Ben Mitchell’s have appeared since Charlie, but no-one quite has moves like one.
We’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane and show you what the best Ben looks like now
