Aaron Dingle is set for more anxiety after jailbird Billy Fletcher arrived in the village.
The poor man was sent to jail when he beat up Kasim Sabit in a drunken stupor, which meant he was arrested and taken to prison for GBH after he and his partner Robert Sugden tried to exchange wedding vows.
He was in the slammer for a year, where he met Billy, the cellmate to the prison’s big cheese and a violent cirminal, Jason.
Jason abused and threatened Aaron, making his life absolute hell, with the help of Billy.

Aaron left prison and likely thought he’d never be reminded of that situation again, but then on his cousin’s wedding day, he saw Billy arrive to see his mum, who happened to be Marlon Dingle’s new bride, Jessie Grant.
Robert attacked Billy in cold blood, which saw Jessie call the police, but Billy told them to drop the charges as he felt he deserved the pain that was caused him, and he tried to beg his brother Ellis and family to give him another chance.
It’s not been going well for him and Ellis, and Aaron and Robert are furious that he is unwilling to leave the village and start his new life elsewhere.
So on Friday, Aaron is cagey as he leaves the Mill, and it’s clear he is scared of running into Billy.
