Benjamin "Ben" Hope is an antagonist on Solitaire and Heartstopper. He used to hook up in between classes with Charlie, who thought that they were going to have a serious relationship. This ended when Charlie realised he was having a girlfriend on the side. Later, he starts a relationship with Becky, which eventually ends her friendship with Tori after Ben is seen beating Charlie up.
Ben is very cunning and has no desire to be a good person. He is very afraid to be outed, which results in a lot of aggression towards Charlie.
- The details of Ben and Charlie's relationship were originally meant to be revealed in Solitaire, but the scene got removed from editing. Instead, this is revealed in Heartstopper.
