Former EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson reveals that he fathered a son by a circus juggler 32 years ago.

Former EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson has revealed that he fathered a son by a circus juggler 32 years ago.

The 54-year-old, who played loveable sap Barry Evans on the BBC soap for 10 years, only found out about his son Gary when he got in touch by email in 2013.

Williamson then underwent DNA testing to confirm that Gary was his before meeting up with him and getting drunk.

"It's the most frightening but amazing discovery I've ever made," he told The Sun. "When I found out I had another son, I was stunned. I was shaking when I went to meet him.

"We shook hands, drank together, had some food, played pool and then had a big hug at the end of the night.

"He's got the same droopy eye as me when he gets tired or drunk. He's part of my family now."

Williamson also has a 22-year-old daughter and a 20-year-old son with wife Melanie Sacre.
