It all kicked off at Marlon Dingle and Jessie Grant’s wedding at Christmas, when Jessie’s son Billy Fletcher was released early from prison and made an unexpected appearance at the wedding reception.
But while Marlon, Jessie and her younger son Ellis were all happy to see Billy again, it was a nasty surprise for Aaron Dingle who revealed to husband Robert Sugden that Billy was part of a gang who made his life a misery when he was in prison a few years back.
After getting into a scuffle with Billy at the wedding, it’s clear there’s plenty of unfinished business between Aaron and Billy.
But when Robert hears how Aaron is now worried about leaving home and bumping into Billy in the village, he begins to worry for his husband’s safety. However, with Billy now living in the village, it doesn’t look like Aaron’s nightmare will be ending anytime soon.
Elsewhere in the village, having previously played match-maker between their dad Rishi Sharma and his lady Manpreet Jutla, Priya and Jai Sharma try to encourage Rishi to take the next step and ask village doctor Manpreet to move into Holdgate with him.
Between all of Manpreet’s subtle hints and pressure from Priya and Jai, will Rishi finally ask the BIG question?
