Homer Ball was the father of Kelly Ball and her half-sister Tonya. He was seen in Episode 13 of Series 7. He may have been the step-father of Kevin Ball, given that Kev stated in an earlier episode that his father was deceased.
Homer had sexually abused both his daughters at different times, getting the youngest, Tonya, pregnant at fourteen. When Micky Maguire found out about Homer's past he warned Homer to leave Chatsworth, but his threats were dismissed. Micky, with Shane's help, would later kidnap Homer and kill him in a slaughter-house before dropping his remains into the Mersey River.
In Series 9, Kelly, during a drug-induced hallucination, recalled that her father once brutally assaulted her mother for buying their young daughter an expensive gift.
