CALLUM Highway’s behaviour will raise some eyebrows in EastEnders next week as it becomes clear the former military man is hiding something.
As the week in Walford gets underway, Callum – played by Tony Clay in the BBC soap – and girlfriend Whitney Dean are delighted to move into their new flat together and Whit is touched when Callum presents her with a thoughtful gift.
Mick and the rest of the Carters make a big fuss of Callum as he does his last shift at the Vic before starting work at the funeral parlour.
But things soon take a dark turn when Tiffany Butcher comes over to help them unpack.
Keen to help them get settled, Tiff – Maisie Smith – offers her services but Callum snaps harshly at her for messing around with his Army uniform, leaving both her and Whitney shocked.
Later, Callum is concerned when Ben Mitchell mentions that he saw him hurting himself weeks back. What’s going on with Callum?
EastEnders fans are convinced that Callum has been lying about being an Army hero.
Callum briefly left Walford in February to go to Iraq, but since he’s been back, his behaviour has been erratic, with it becoming clear he’s hiding something.
During an episode from earlier this month, Mick and Linda Carter threw him a party to welcome him home, and punters in the Vic asked him to share a story from his time in the army.
The lad recalled meeting a child who was playing with friends before a bomb went off, however there appeared to be holes in his story that Robbie was keen to question.
Callum – who is nicknamed Halfway – suddenly said he needed air and walked out to the Square, where Mick came and met him and had an odd exchange about him being a hero.

But things just aren’t adding up for viewers who are convinced Halfway isn’t telling the truth.
One tweeted: “I think Halfway shot himself and he’s gone AWOL when the Army found out.#Eastenders”
Another said: “I think his brother Stuart is key to this riddle. I’m getting mid-level criminal vibes going by the discussion of him #EastEnders”
A third theorised: “Halfway’s secret is probably that he didn’t return to the Army and that he was blackmailed into doing a robbery for Aidan/or his brother talked him into doing one. #Eastenders”
While a fourth wondered: “What’s Halfways secret? What is he lying about? I reckon he didn’t save anyone. I think someone died saving him instead. #EastEnders”
Someone else tweeted: “Half way is clearly AWOL #EastEnders”
And another fan joked: “Pretty impressive how Robbie almost cracked that Halfway was being dishonest. Maybe he could work out what happened to Flight MH370 and who the Zodiac Killer is #EastEnders”
So what IS Callum hiding?
