The Daily Star Sunday reports today that while Billy Mitchell is searching for his son, he’ll visit a care home in his attempt to get information, and while there, he has to intervene when teenaged girls start brawling…
But he gets more than he bargained for when he discovers that one of the girls is his granddaughter!
The paper states, “Billy grabs troublesome Lola by the waist and tries to pull her off the girl she is fighting.
“Thinking his grand- daughter is the one on the floor he is gob-smacked when he finds out she is actually the most violent of the two.”
However, despite the fact Lola evidently has “issues” Billy’s determined that he won’t turn his back on her.
But the same can’t be said for Billy’s girlfriend Julie Perkins, who wasn’t as keen as Billy was to track down their grand-daughter. She’s left feeling awkward and uncomfortable about the whole thing.
And she quickly realises the enormity of taking Lola on.
An EastEnders insider said, “When Billy finds out they have a grand-daughter he is determined to find her.
“Julie isn’t as keen so Billy tricks her into coming to the children’s home.
“When the fight breaks out Billy thinks the one being picked on is their grand- daughter and immediately intervenes.
“So you can imagine his surprise when he finds out Lola is actually the feisty instigator. He’s totally shocked.
“Billy spent most of his childhood in a children’s home and was bullied as well as being abused.
“He just assumes that his grand-daughter is the one who’s getting picked on as he found himself in the same situation on so many occasions.
“When they finally meet Lola she is not at all what either of them expected.”
We’ll get to see Billy and Julie track down troublesome Lola a week on Tuesday.
