Are Honey and Jay going to have an affair behind Billy’s back in EastEnders?
Spoilers have revealed that Jay will apologise to Honey for all the hurtful things he said later this week.
And in a shock twist, Jay will then tell Honey that the kiss really did mean something and admit he has feelings for her.
It’s not yet clear whether Jay’s shock confession will lead to a romance between the pair, but that hasn’t stopped fans dreading an affair.
One fan said: “Now I love mismatched pairings, I mean I’m the guy who’s intrigued by Peter and Suki but I do not want Jay and Honey as a couple. I don’t want Jay and Billy against each other and Honey has been like a mother to Jay. #EastEnders.”
Another added: “#Eastenders. It does seem to be a bit unfair if Jay was to carry on his affair with Honey behind Billy’s back. I don’t blame him though I mean what have they got to loose anyway nothing. Billy and Honey would never get back together after what he did to her.”
Why is Jay lying to Billy in EastEnders?
Viewers know that Billy fostered Jay after the death of his dad, meaning that his ex-wife Honey is technically Jay’s former step-mother.
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.”
What’s the history between Honey and Jay in EastEnders?
Viewers know that Honey and Jay grew closer at the end of last year following her date rape ordeal.
The shop assistant was drugged by her date Paul and led to an alley in broad daylight in horrifying scenes.
But Jay arrived just in time to save Honey from her evil date Paul and has been by her side ever since, supporting her when she went to the police to report the rapist.
The pair then shared a kiss over the festive period – much to the horror of Billy who walked in on their smooch.

EastEnders fans will remember Honey first met Billy when Yolande set her up to lure Patrick into revealing his affair.
But Honey mistook Billy for Patrick and their relationship developed from there.
