NEWLYWEDS Andy Carroll and Billi Mucklow put on a united front yesterday on their return from honeymoon following his three-in-a-bed stag do shame.
The ex-England footballer, 33 — who has been inching his way back into his new wife’s good books — had lunch with Billi and pals in the sunshine at a Turkish restaurant.
The speciality dish, a skewered lamb shish kebab, may have caught Andy’s eye at the trendy Piya Bar and Kitchen in Epping, Essex.
But he probably kept away from their £10 cocktails after his boozy antics in Dubai ended up with him in a bed with two women.
The Sun’s revelations last month led to former Towie star Billi, 34, removing her engagement ring before finally agreeing to marry Andy.
The couple, who got engaged in 2014, were then seen staring glumly into their phones on their honeymoon in Mexico.

A source told The Sun yesterday: “Andy has been in the dog house since the stag do and that didn’t change after they exchanged vows and went on honeymoon.
“He has been doing his best to make up for his behaviour and, after time away, Billi is finally starting to relax and put the past behind her.
"Having their first break as man and wife was exactly what they needed and hopefully Andy’s learned his lesson once and for all.”
We told how the former Newcastle and Liverpool striker invited bar manager Taylor Jane Wilkey, 27, and fitness instructor Phoebe Robb, 26, to his Dubai suite after an all-day drinking session on his stag do.

He was then photographed passed out on his bed next to them.
Taylor later apologised to Billi — insisting that nothing had happened between her and Andy.
She said: “He was a gentleman. He just had so much to drink and passed out on the bed. He didn’t try anything and, even if he had wanted to, he was too drunk.”
But Billi was left devastated, removing her ring and her fiancé’s picture from her WhatsApp profile.
She told pals at the time she was “in no mood” to get married.
But, after emotional crisis talks with her parents, she later agreed to go ahead with the lavish ceremony at the Four Seasons in Hampshire earlier this month.
