Billy's secret brother Teddy subsequently showed up in Walford with sons Harry and Barney, leaving him staggered when he found out that Stevie had cheated on his mother Val.

However, Billy eventually decided to give his father a second chance and build a relationship with his long-lost brother and nephews.

This was all before Billy was rocked by a life-changing disclosure about his mother while he was trying to throw dad Stevie a birthday party.

Phil Mitchell had overheard Stevie and Teddy talking in secret about Val, so he enlisted his lawyer Ritchie Scott to dig up dirt on the family history.

As the surprise birthday party was getting under way at the Queen Vic, Stevie discovered that Phil now knew he'd been lying about Val all along.

Stevie had no choice but to admit that Val had passed away when Billy was only 9 years old and it was all his fault. Billy was left crushed that he'd never known the truth about his mother's death.

Will Billy forgive his father for this shocking family secret?
