William "Billy" Mallett was born on 25th December 1998 to Gary and Judy Mallett, along with twin sister Becky.

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 No.9, leaving devastated Gary a single dad.

The following year, Gary began a new relationship with Paula Shipley after rescuing her son Warren from the sea in Blackpool. That October, the new family-of-five left Weatherfield to live in Blackpool.
