Hollyoaks has revealed a first look at their new Billy Parker as Leah’s biological dad returns to the village and turns Ste Hay’s world upside down.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that the soap is lining up a new crisis for Ste and Harry Thompson when Leah’s biological father Billy returns next week, with actor Daniel Jillings taking over the role.
And, going by these pictures, it’s not long before Ste and Billy are exchanging heated words.
Billy returns to the village after reading a story of Leah’s in a magazine and he returns to Chester with the announcement that he wants to see his daughter again.
Although Leah has already been reprimanded by Ste for selling her story, Leah offers to give her dad a loan with the money she made to help with his wedding to Harry.
But when Billy gets wind of the article, it’s not long before he’s confronting Ste and making it clear that if they don’t give him what he wants it could cause problems for Ste and Harry’s custody of Leah.
The role of Billy was last played by Emmerdale star Michael Parr, who appeared as the character in just one episode back in 2012, but with Parr being a bit busy playing Ross Barton at the moment, it’s down to Jillings to inhabit the role of Billy this time around.
And, just because we do love a good soap coincidence, that’s not the only Emmerdale link with the casting either, as Daniel also happens to be best mates with Aaron Dingle actor Danny Miller too, and the pair co-founded charity Once Upon A Time too.
Hollyoaks airs these scenes on Monday, May 28 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
