Shaun Williamson celebrated Father’s Day with his “secret son,” he said.
The 55-year-old former EastEnders star welcomed the “remarkable” get-together in a pub over the weekend.
Shaun had a relationship with Gary’s mother in the 1980s when he was working as a bluecoat at Pontins.
But after learning about his son in 2013 – and talking about it last year – the two now get along well and partied over the weekend.

“Finding Gary and getting on so well with him shows you the incredible things life can offer.
“I know I missed a lot in his life – now I can make it up to you.”
What did Gary say about his father?
After Shaun broke up with Gary’s mother in the 1980s, the circus performer told him she was pregnant.
However, Shaun went to pursue a career in America. Gary’s mother subsequently married another man, and her husband was listed as Gary’s father on the birth certificate.
But growing up in Belfast, Gary always loved seeing Barry in EastEnders when he was a boy.
Even though he enjoyed Shaun’s character in the soap, he always thought someone else was his father.
A paternity test confirmed Shaun as Gary’s father, and the 34-year-old now says “it is proof that miracles sometimes happen”.
