And it looks like his nightmare is only going to get worse as next week viewers will see Honey and Jay about to get closer as Lola and Billy stumble upon the scene.
Later in the week, Honey and Jay decide it’s time to come clean to Billy.
But when Honey asks Billy if she can hae a word, Billy assumes romance is in the air and thinks she wants to get back together.

Will Honey break his heart?
EastEnders viewers know that Honey and Jay grew closer at the end of last year following her date rape ordeal, leading to the pair sharing a kiss over the Christmas period.
But when Billy quizzed Jay about the kiss in recent scenes, Jay panicked and insisted it meant nothing.
The mechanic was mortified, however, to realise that Honey had heart all the hurtful things he said and, in a shock twist, insisted the kiss did mean something – and that he does have feelings for her.

Speaking about how a romance between Honey and Jay would upset her ex Billy, actress Emma Barton recently told Metro.co.uk: “If anything did happen, it would be very complicated and cause quite a bit of drama because she, Jay and Billy have such a history together and poor Billy, he still loves Honey very much.”
She added: “It might cause a lot of conflict.”
And speaking about her character’s love life ahead of her return to the soap last September following a nine month break, actress Emma Barton revealed that she wants her character to get back together with Billy – and not date Jay.
Talking to Radio Times, Emma revealed: “I’m not going to lie, speaking as Emma I do think Honey and Billy belong together.
“They write so brilliantly and truthfully for them so it’s not like they will just simply pick up, there is always a journey with those characters and I love that.
“Let’s see where her and Billy’s relationship goes…”
