Trouble for Dawn 

After shooting Malone in self defence, Dawn has be struggling with the guilt of what she has done, and dumped Billy to protect him from the truth.

Fans watched in horror earlier this week when it was revealed she'd slept with Billy's brother, Ellis in a bid to really push Billy away.

Unable to work with Billy and Ellis after the trouble she has caused, Dawn quit her job at HOP and fans were shocked to see her leaving the village.
