Emmerdale spoilers: SHOCK as Billy's DODGY PAST comes back to haunt him

Billy Fletcher

Ex-con Billy Fletcher gets a shock when prison gangster Max turns up in the village

Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) has been trying to turn over a new leaf since he pitched up in Emmerdale following a stint in prison.

Keen to blend into his mum Jessie's (Sandra Marvin) new life with Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) and his young daughter April, Billy has made sure he towed the line, even though his half-brother Jay (Asan N'Jie) has been trying to shoot him down every step of the way.

So he gets the shock of his life when Max, the dodgy gangster he was involved with in prison, suddenly pitches up in the village!

Max was one of the thugs who put Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) through hell. Has he returned to inflict more pain on him? Or to rope Billy into something shady?
