Emmerdale spoilers: Ben Tucker is homeless as soap reveals his secret

What’s going on? (Pictures: ITV)

There’s been a great deal of mystery surrounding Ben Tucker (Simon Lennon) as of late in Emmerdale.

Receiving mysterious phone calls, Ben also came face to face with a drunk man from his past during Pride week in the village.

Managing to cover his tracks, Ben lied to Aaron (Danny Miller), but he’s known something is up with his boyfriend, but hasn’t figured out what he’s hiding.

Tonight (July 22), the mystery continued as Aaron confided in Matty (Ash Palmisciano) and Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson), telling them he doesn’t actually know Ben as well as what he initially thought.

Under the impression he was living in Hotten, Aaron was taken aback when Amy revealed that Ben actually lives in a completely different location.

To prove her point, Amy also told Aaron they have updated HR forms at HOP, meaning Ben has been lying about where he really lives.

Spending the evening with Victoria (Isabel Hodgins), Aaron was oblivious to what Ben was up to and, in shocking scenes, viewers discovered Ben’s actually homeless.

Wandering through some woodland, Ben unlocked a small shed.

On the phone to Aaron at the same time, Ben told his boyfriend he’d be spending a quiet evening at his place.

With a can of beans for his dinner, inside the shed was camping equipment, confirming to viewers Ben had been staying in this hut for a long time.

He’s got a job at HOP, so why is Ben so short on money, he can’t afford a proper roof over his head?

Who is he giving his money to?

Ben was also seen on the phone to someone tonight, but who could it be?
