Jay Kontzle announces new film project away from Emmerdale's Billy

Emmerdale star Jay Kontzle was ‘proud’ to share his new film project with his fans.

The actor, who portrays Billy Fletcher on the ITV soap, took to social media to tell all about the short movie, which is ‘doing the festival run’.

‘Proud to announce my second short film is currently doing the festival run and already picked up a few laurels!,’ he wrote on Instagram.

Huge thanks to all involved as everyone brought something special to make this film!’.

Jay also revealed a first look at the film’s poster, which gives fans a glimpse at some of the cast involved, including EastEnders’ Timothy West.

Emmerdale co-star Amy Walsh, who plays Tracy Metcalfe, responded with clapping emojis, while commenting on the excellent cast that the project has to offer.


Last month, Jay revealed that his wife Mimi is pregnant with their third child. The soap star is already dad to daughter KaiBo, 6 and son Zian, 4.

Discussing his reaction when he first found out that Mimi was expecting, he revealed that he was a bit ‘shocked’. 

‘Mimi called me during my lunch break on set and told me,’ he told OK! Magazine. 

‘I was sitting eating lunch in the sun and all of a sudden I went hot and started dripping with sweat. I was a bit shocked!

‘Before that, Mimi had said she wanted to get a pregnancy test and I said: “A pregnancy test? That’s a lot of money that, especially with the cost of living going up.”

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV.
