Storing his essentials in a trendy navy man bag, he sported a black baseball cap as he unlocked his grey people carrier.

Kneeling into the vehicle’s boot, he maneuvered through a series of plastic bags and a blue cool box before finding a home for his new purchase.

Billy, 79, who played gangster Johnny Allen between 2005 and 2006, believes that his past colleague deserves a honour for being in the BBC One soap for so long.

He told The Mirror: ‘Steve McFadden should be knighted. He works so hard. He should be Sir Steve.

‘He has been in EastEnders forever and it is tough working in a soap… Robert De Niro wouldn’t do it, the big actors wouldn’t.

‘You get a script, learn the lines and then it all changes. It takes a lot of your energy.’

Phil Mitchell is arguably one of EastEnders’ most iconic characters, and has been involved in many high-profile storylines over the years.

One of his most famous plots saw him shot by an unknown character in 2001, who was later revealed to be his ex-girlfriend Lisa Shaw (Lucy Benjamin).

Phil quickly became rivals with Billy’s on-screen character Johnny Allen, with things escalating during the soap’s Get Johnny Week in early 2006, which also saw the return of Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp).

Johnny was later killed off in October 2006, in which he died of a heart attack while serving time in prison.

In recent scenes broadcast in the series, Phil’s ex-wife Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) revealed that she wants to become involved in his money laundering scheme.
