William "Billy" Mallett was one of Gary and Judy Mallett's twins, born in 1998. He and his sister Becky lived at 9 Coronation Street until the Malletts moved to Blackpool in 2000, a year after the kids lost their mother to an embolism.

Biography

Judy found out she was pregnant in April 1998, and that it was twins two months later. She and Gary had been attempting to conceive for months, due to Judy's fertility problems as the result of an abortion when she was 16. Billy was born at 6:40am on Christmas Day 1998, with his twin sister Becky following an hour later.

The Mallett twins lost their mother before their first birthday, in September 1999. Judy had been involved in a minor car accident while out in Vera Duckworth’s car, sold to her by her ne’er-do-well son Terry who knew it was a dangerous cut-and-shut. Seemingly just a bang on the leg, a week later she suffered a fatal embolism in the backyard of the Mallett household, 9 Coronation Street. Devastated Gary was left a single dad, struggling to cope with two small babies.

The following year, Gary began a new relationship with Paula Shipley after rescuing her son Warren from the sea in Blackpool, where the Shipleys lived. Their relationship developed and that October, the Malletts left Weatherfield for a new life in Blackpool with Paula and Warren.
