Billy Fletcher of Emmerdale appears to be on the verge of ditching Meena Jutla in favor of the lady who means considerably more to him.
Over the holidays, Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) is set to rekindle his romance with Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley).
The Emmerdale actor will have to get the bravery to tell serial killer Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) that he prefers Dawn to him. Will Dawn say yes after he ditches Meena and gets down on one knee to propose to her?
In upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, the on-again, off-again lovers Billy and Dawn look prepared to revive their romance.
In a desperate attempt to keep Billy away from Dawn, nasty Meena will go to new lows by informing him she’s pregnant with his child.
Dawn, on the other hand, appears understanding when Billy informs her of his unborn child with Meena, and she still wants to give their relationship a chance.
Will Billy ask Dawn for her hand in marriage over the holidays, now that he is more persuaded than ever that she is the appropriate woman for him?
Is a wedding in the cards for the Emmerdale couple in the New Year?
Billy actor Jay Kontzle spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk and other outlets about his budding affair with Dawn.
Speaking about sharing a kiss with Dawn while he’s still dating Meena, the actor said: “He’s quite taken aback because he’s still in a relationship with Meena and he’s not into the world of cheating so he needs to make a decision.
“He can’t just go with two of them; he’ll have to sever ties with one of them, and he’ll need time to consider his options.
“Obviously, he has massive feelings for Dawn and he can’t cut around corners.”
In the ensuing scenes, Billy decides that he wants to be with Dawn, but Meena isn’t the type to take being dumped lightly.
Jay added: “But it’s a strong decision and he feels he’s made the right decision and he feels like it will pay off. Whether it does or doesn’t we will soon find out.”
In a bid to keep Billy, Meena pretends she’s pregnant with his baby, which Jay described as a “foot in the grave for Billy”.
“He’s a family man and he needs to be there for his kid so that’s thrown a spanner in the works and he’s in a position where he might lose Dawn completely,” he added.
He does, however, tell Dawn the truth about the pregnancy, which he doesn’t realize is a lie, and she accepts it and continues to want to be with him.
Billy is planning to propose to Dawn on New Year’s Eve, but will she accept?
“[The proposal] was really spontaneous,” Jay recalled of getting down on one knee when the time was right.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time and it’s a lovely moment.
“It’s a New Year, a new start and a new beginning to Billy and Dawn, and it was just done on a whim.
“But he thought it could be a fresh start for the two of them. It was quite emotional, but it was nice.”
So, will Dawn say yes, and can Emmerdale viewers expect a wedding in the coming months if she does?
