JAY Brown gets on the wrong side of former foster father Billy Mitchell next week.

The EastEnders market stall holder punches the character in a blind rage – but why would he attack him?

Jay Brown is accused of cheating on Honey Mitchell with Lola Pearce

This all stems from a night out he spends in his friend’s company

But nobody knows it’s actually all a misunderstanding

Much like any other Albert Square resident, Jay Brown (portrayed by Jamie Borthwick) heads to The Vic in upcoming scenes of the BBC One soap.

However, the owner of Maximum Motors is shocked and confused when Billy (Perry Fenwick) storms in and punches him as a mortified Lola Pearce (departing actress Danielle Harold) watches the scene.

Moments before, Jay was promising his partner Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton) a spa break.

Little did he know that Ash Panesar would turn to the Market Inspector and tell her Jay was cheating on her with Lola.

The doctor may mean well but she has no clue Jay has actually been faithful to his other half and the infidelity accusation (which was heard by Billy) is nothing but gossip.

The rumour began when a hungover Jay walked into the café making plans with Frankie and Lola for an evening out, much to Honey’s disappointment.

Later on, at Peggy’s, a drunk Jay pretends to be Lola’s boyfriend to get a guy off her back and the pair leave together – a scene witnessed by Ash Panesar.

Lola and Jay laugh off his antics, more specifically him pretending to be her boyfriend the night before.

Unbeknownst to them, Lola’s daughter Lexi overhears their conversation.

The 10-year-old then sees a disagreement between Jay and Honey, telling her son Will that Jay is cheating on the latter with Lola.

Will is fuming and tells Jada Lennox what he’s been told – but the gossip starts to spread around Walford.

After being punched by his former foster father – with whom he has had a strained relationship due to his romance with Honey, Billy’s ex-wife – Jay tries to explain himself with Lola.

But will Honey believe them?

How will Jay react to Billy’s attack, which is far from being the first time he’s physically assaulted by him?

EastEnders airs on BBC One from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm.
