How old is Jay in EastEnders?

Jay was born in October 1994, making him 26-years-old.

The character - played by Jamie Borthwick - first appeared on The Square back in 2006.

After the death of his dad, Jase, Billy became like a father figure to Jay and adopted him.

Jay was also in a relationship with Billy’s granddaughter Lola until they split earlier this year.

How old is Honey in EastEnders?

Honey - played by Emma Barton - is 44-years-old, so there is an age gap of around 18 years.

She married Billy in 2006 but they split up after she discovered he had cheated on her with Tina Carter.

Honey and Jay are not biologically related, but they are both closely linked to the Mitchell family and have known each other since Jay was about 12-years old.

This comes after Honey was drugged by her date Paul earlier this year and passed out in an alley.

Jay found Honey and called for an ambulance, before staying by her side as she reported her attacker to the police.
