character_name=Aubrey Valentine
actor_name=Joseph Marcell
years=2006
first=17 October 2006
last=30 October 2006
status=Single

Aubrey Valentine was once a member of a band called The Five Hectors, along with Patrick Trueman, Cedric Lucas and two other men named Dwight and Earl. Aubrey first appeared in Walford on 17 October 2006, for Cedric's funeral. Patrick revealed to Aubrey that local resident Denise Fox knew that her father was in The Five Hectors, but she did not know his name. On realising that he could possibly be Denise's father, Aubrey left the funeral reception.

He later returned and attended a dinner party at Patrick and Yolande's house, with Denise, her boyfriend Kevin, and children Chelsea and Libby. He agreed to take a paternity test for Denise, and stayed with her at Pat Evans' house. He later moved in with Patrick and Yolande when he found out that Patrick and Pat had had an affair. He then got Yolande drunk and they shared a passionate kiss.

When Yolande woke up, she couldn't remember anything beyond the kiss.

Yolande decided to throw Aubrey out of her house, and whilst packing his bag for him, found that he hadn't sent off the paternity test. She confronted Aubrey, who told her that he knew he wasn't Denise's father, but didn't send off the test because he didn't want Patrick to have a daughter when he didn't. He also revealed that he wasn't rich as he had previously stated, and the car he drove was not his, but hired. Aubrey also confessed that he lied about having sex with Yolande, as he was jealous of Patrick having a wife.

Aubrey carried on pretending that he was awaiting the test results, until he made a speech during another dinner party at Pat's house, where he referred to Denise and her daughters as "family", and Yolande exposed him as a fraud. He subsequently told Patrick that he and Yolande had kissed. As he drove away he told Patrick that things hadn't changed, and he always got Patrick's girls.
