KAREN Taylor’s year got even worse tonight when she caught her boyfriend Billy Mitchell snogging his ex Honey at her party.
She bowled over with a drink only to find the boozed-up former couple kissing in the corner.
It comes days after she discovered her son Keanu was missing and perhaps murdered at the hands of Albert Square madman Phil Mitchell.
However, things had been going better for Billy, with his haphazard seduction technique finally finding a grateful audience.
He told Honey: “You’re going to be OK, I know it. You’re the best mum. You’re the sweetest, kindest person I’ve ever met.
“And you are without a doubt the sexiest woman in the whole world.”
She replied: Too much Billy, way too much. If you’re going to give a girl a compliment, you’ve got to make it believable.”
But he persisted: “I mean it. You take my breath away, you always have.”
Honey then leaned in and kissed him, with the pair snogging at the exact moment Karen came over, gasping in horror and turning on her heel.
As his ex also made a speedy exit, he was left mumbling: “Karen… Honey…”
It’s a reverse of the situation when Honey found Billy with Karen.
However, with Keanu missing, Karen couldn’t find the energy to care.
She told Billy: “I don’t care about that – her, you. It’s Keanu, he ain’t called. I’ve rung him about 100 times.
“I think Phil has lied to me and you. I think he’s killed my boy. I can feel it. I’m a mum, I can feel it. I think my baby’s dead.”
