Emmerdale’s Billy ‘working for prison mate Lachlan’?

But who beat him up?

| Updated:

There was an immediate whiff of danger in the air as Jessie’s jailbird son Billy turned up unannounced at her sort-of-wedding on Christmas Day.

Aaron recognised him as one of his bullying agitators from his time in prison and saw red.

Robert had to hold him back at the party, and his rage was still clear in last night’s episode.

He told Robert: “Billy kept himself in the background most of the time. He didn’t want to get in trouble, I suppose.

“He was still part of it – he had this way of staying under the radar and he’d never let up.

“He was clever with it though – he only had to look at you to make you hate yourself. And now he’s here.”

But fans of the soap were still shocked as the newcomer was brutally beaten up at the end of the episode.

Who was the attacker? The obvious money would be on Aaron, or perhaps Robert, being protective towards his husband.

But some viewers also think Billy’s own brother, Ellis, could be the culprit.

Elsewhere, Lydia, Sam Dingle and Samson returned home from the wedding together to see their cottage had been ransacked, although nothing appeared to have been stolen.

Clearly something wasn’t stacking up.

Some fans have a theory that Billy may have been banged up with Lachlan and is the puppet in some scheme the serial killer is cooking up from behind bars to torment the Dingles!

Well, it’s an interesting theory! Leave us a comment on our Facebook page @EntertainmentDailyFix and let us know what you think!
