Daniel's mum wasn't happy about what happened to Billy Mayhew at Christmas

Coronation Street star Daniel Brocklebank has revealed that his mum Tracy didn’t like the dramatic scenes at Christmas, when his character Billy Mayhew, fell off a cliff after being held hostage by Peter Barlow.

The 38-year-old actor said: “My Twitter feed went mad on Christmas Day when people thought Billy had died, but not as mad as my mum,” he told TV Times.

“I hadn’t told her what was going to happen and when Billy fell off the cliff, she screamed, ‘Nooooooo!’ at the television.

“She said, ‘No mother should ever have to watch that.’ She takes it all very seriously.”

Billy didn’t have a good Christmas

We’re not sure that Daniel’s mum will be too pleased with what’s coming up for Billy in Coronation Street this spring either!

In the spring Billy’s friends and family become concerned when he goes missing, and have no idea that the troubled vicar is on drugs. Can his loved ones track him down before it’s too late?

Meanwhile, Daniel seems to be having a very nice time on holiday in Bangkok judging by this tweet.

Coronation Street continues tonight at 8.30pm on ITV and there’s more drama in store for Billy Mayhew in this evening’s episode…
