Billy, played by Daniel Brocklebank on the cobbles, is set to confess he killed Susan Barlow – Ken Barlow’s daughter and the mother of his grandson Adam.

It had previously been thought Susan had died in a tragic motorway accident in 2001, having seemingly lost control of her car.

But in shock scenes to air in the coming weeks, Billy finally admits his guilt and confesses to Todd Grimshaw he has lived with the secret for years – sparking fury and heartbreak which will build to become a major Christmas storyline.

A soap source revealed: “Billy is one of the nicest men on the Street, and fans see him as a mild-mannered voice of reason in amongst all the chaos.

“But in the coming weeks, fans will discover there is much more to Billy than previously thought – and he’s been harbouring a dark secret.

“For 16 years he’s been wracked by guilt knowing that he killed Susan, and finally things come to a head as he reveals to Todd he caused the accident when she died.

“It’s heartbreaking for him, and he tells how he now has to suffer the agony of living alongside the family he caused so much pain to all those years ago.

“It’s going to be a huge storyline this Christmas.”
