EASTENDERS’ Honey Mitchell is going to make a move on ex-husband Billy this New Year’s Eve.
The newly single shop assistant – who is played by actress Emma Barton in the ITV soap – will still be down in the dumps about life after cheating Adam as a single mum of two.
But as Billy’s new dalliance Karen throws a New Year’s Eve party, Honey goes along and Billy tries to cheer her up.
However, as Billy asks if she’s OK, Honey takes a chance and leans in to kiss the man she has repeatedly rejected since they split up more than a year ago.
Billy had a drunken one night stand with lesbian Tina Carter almost two years ago and it split the fan-favourite couple up.
But now Billy’s moved on with Karen, is there a chance that Honey and Billy could reunite properly?
Last week Honey looked heartbroken as she caught the pair of them romping went to ask Billy if she could move in temporarily.
As she turned up at the door a flustered and breathless Billy said: “I just weren’t expecting you, that’s all. Been a bit busy. Everything alright?”
Honey said: “You haven’t heard have you? I finished with Adam Billy, in front of half the Square.
“Then I may have assaulted him a little bit. Well more than a little bit, quite a lot actually.
“Iqra said I’m harder than I look apparently so obviously that means we obviously don’t have anywhere to stay if you could tide us over.”
Regaining his footing Billy told her: “Stay here. Stay as longas you want and I know it doesn’t mean we’re getting back together so there are no expectations.”
The pair hugged before Karen came down stairs in her dressing gown exhausted from romping with Billy and it became what Billy had been up to.
Honey looked heartbroken as she realised Billy had moved on with Karen and fans were horrified.
