Stuart Halfway might have taken one step forward in EastEnders fans' books, but he just took 20 steps back.
That's because Stuart's homophobic nature reared its ugly head when he decided to attack Ben Mitchell on behalf of his brother.
Discovering that Ben had been taunting his brother, Stuart rounded on him in the toilets and demanded that he stayed away from him.
He then branded Ben a "nonce" and said that they were "all the same".
And fans were left incredibly frustrated following the effort that had been made to turn around Stuart's character.
One tweeted: "There aren’t many characters I truly hate but Stewart Highway is one of them. Get his homophobic character off the square x #EastEnders."
While another commented: " So is Stuart homophobic or just doesn't like Ben and was saying those things to upset him? #EastEnders."
A third remarked: "Stuart being homophobic is not the one. #EastEnders."
