EastEnders' beloved character Billy Mitchell is set to face more emotional turmoil next week.

Recently, he was introduced to his half-brother Teddy Mitchell and his sons Harry and Banrey Mitchell after discovering that his father Stevie Mitchell had a secret family.

Stevie ended up in hospital after Will Mitchell pushed the elderly man during an argument. Teddy visited his father at Walford General before returning to the Square to get to know the local area and his newfound family.

Teddy and his two sons have since settled into life in the Square, seemingly winning over family head Phil. In a recent scene, Stevie revealed to his two sons that Teddy was the result of a fling, but Teddy quickly questioned his father about his dishonesty.

In the upcoming episodes of EastEnders, the Mitchells gather for a celebration as Billy plans a surprise party for Stevie at The Vic, reports OK!.

He tells his son Will that Stevie and his long-lost mother, Val, share the same birthday. However, he soon admits that he has no idea where his mother is currently.

At the cafe, Teddy confronts Stevie and sternly warns him to stop lying. After overhearing them discussing keeping something from Billy, Phil becomes curious and asks his trusted lawyer Ritchie to investigate.

Meanwhile, at The Vic, Stevie is thrilled by the efforts Billy and Will have made, prompting Billy to give a speech about his father and send well wishes to his mother - wherever she may be.

However, Phil soon turns up and pulls Stevie aside to reveal the damning evidence that Ritchie has unearthed about him, which doesn't bode well.

Once they're back at No. 18, Stevie admits to Billy that his mum is no longer alive, with Teddy witnessing the confession.

Later on, Teddy encourages Billy not to let this shocking news ruin their bond. Could Stevie's deception spell the end of his relationship with Billy?
