We've all become hooked on a TV show or one of its characters at some point in our lives - but one particular fan has gone the extra mile to show his devotion to his favourite soap character.
Superfan Shaun Smith, who lives in Basildon, has spent a whopping £5000 to transform his house into a tribute to Ben Mitchell from EastEnders.
He even owns a onesie with the character's face on it.
"A lot of people rebelled against him being homosexual," Shaun told Paul Ross. "I can relate to that.
"When I first saw Harry Reid [the actor who portrays him] in the show in 2015, I started following the storyline and it made me the person I am now.
"The way he is as a gay person, he's come out and doesn't care who judges him, it's helped me and I've been inspired by him.
"He's done so much for me and I'm so grateful."
