EastEnders shock as Billy Mitchell reveals secret homeless torment

EASTENDERS fans are in shock after Billy Mitchell was revealed to be secretly homeless.

The market trader – who is played by actor Perry Fenwick in the BBC soap – was seen bedding down in the car office despite bragging about his swish new flat.

After winning a selling competition with Rocky, Billy spent his £20 winnings on fish and chips for himself and his kids – and his ex-wife Honey and her boyfriend Jay Brown.

They thanked him and he bragged about going back to his brand new flash apartment.

However at the end of the episode it became clear that Billy had been lying about his swish new pad.

In a scene at the end of tonight’s episode, he could be seen letting himself into the car office.

Pulling out a sleeping bag, he made up his makeshift bed on the sofa and pulled out the leftover chips and eagerly ate them up.

But he was shaking and it became clear he was living in the freezing cabin – and was in fact homeless.

The soap has hinted at Billy’s predicament over recent weeks.

Last week he featured in a scene with Phil Mitchell who noticed something was off about Billy.

But Phil being Phil didn’t ask – instead he simply told Billy to take a shower because he stank.

And now viewers know the reason why and are heartbroken for him.

One wrote: "I feel for Billy and the kids. The kids think their dad doesn’t want them to stay, and Billy is trying to keep up appearances."

A second said: "It’s heart-breaking watching Billy with Honey, Jay, and the kids."

Another added: "Awww poor Billy! Doesn't have much luck!"
