Callum Highway has been left a single man after his marriage to Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) recently broke down. The pair called time on their relationship after Callum (Tony Clay) thought his husband had cheated on him with Lewis Butler (Aiden O'Callaghan), not knowing Ben was actually a victim of rape.

During Tuesday's EastEnders episode (August 16), Callum and Ben arranged to meet at Kathy's for a coffee. However, as the policeman walked towards the cafe Felix Baker (Matthew Morrison), whose alter ego is drag queen Tara Misu, purposely bumped into him.

Speaking about how the newest members of the Baker family got Jay Brown drunk at Avery's wake, Callum went on to say he was sorry to hear about his late dad, Avery, with Felix taking the opportunity to share his humour.

"There's something brilliantly awkward about death. You can't help but make inappropriate jokes", Felix tells Callum as Ben then rudely interrupts. Standing between the two men, Ben tells Callum: "We having this coffee or what", as Callum gives an awkward glance at Felix and heads into the café.

Following the exchange between Callum and Felix, eagle-eyed viewers of the BBC One soap were left predicting a romance between the two. Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Callum and Felix could get together. A nice scene. #EastEnders".

A second stated: "Can't blame Felix for fancying Callum, the boy is hot. Ben didn't seem too impressed though. #EastEnders". A third chimed in: "I can see a potential relationship between Callum and Felix." "Oooo… Felix and Callum having their first conversation" said one curious viewer.
