However Billy has struggled to balance fame, social media and assumptions people have made about him.

When Louise discovered her fiancé Keanu had cheated on her with her stepmum Sharon, and got her pregnant, she helped her brother Ben and dad Phil plan Keanu's murder.

She led Keanu to a van where he was soon kidnapped by Martin.

Although Keanu was actually let go by Martin, Louise believed she assisted in his murder and began to struggle with guilt. She later believed that her daughter Peggy's constant cries were because she hated her.

Eventually Louise left Walford with her mum Lisa and daughter Peggy in order to move to Portugal. But will she ever return?
