Sadie plants doubt in Tom’s mind on the morning of the wedding

It’s the morning of Tom (Ken Farrington) and Charity’s (Emma Atkins) wedding and as the bride and groom excitedly prepare for their big day, Jimmy (Nick Miles) does his utmost to discourage Sadie (Patsy Kensit) from showing Tom the incriminating photos.

Despite Jimmy’s best efforts, Sadie is adamant that Tom has a right to know and presents him with the pictures. Tom is initially confused but as the realisation kicks in he is stunned that Charity has betrayed him.

Sadie shows Tom the pictures

There are murmurs among the villagers as Tom fails to arrive at the church and Matthew (Matt Healy) looks increasingly concerned. Much to Sadie’s disgust, Tom eventually waltzes in and apologises for his lateness as he takes his place at the alter.

Episode: 3940 - ITV1 Network Tuesday 4 January 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM

ITV Update

Church of the poison mind Tues, 7.00pm, 4th Jan

Sadie helps Charity get ready for her big day. Charity is touched when Sadie lets her have a diamond bracelet to wear for the wedding as ‘something borrowed’. Sadie heads over to Holdgate Farm and engineering time alone with Tom and Jimmy drops her bombshell. Tom carries on as if nothing has happened but snaps at Dean when he arrives to drive him to the church. Tom orders Dean to keep driving while he looks at the photos. Meanwhile, Zak and Charity head for the Church. Zak tells Charity how happy she looks.
When Charity arrives at the church Sadie enjoys telling her that Tom has been held up. When Tom still doesn’t appear Jimmy tells Sadie he will have to call it off. Just then Tom arrives and Sadie’s face drops. Tom is stony faced as Jimmy asks him whether he’s okay. Ashley gets the service underway and when he asks whether anyone knows of any legal impediment to the marriage Tom speaks up. He says that just as Charity’s been led down the aisle he’s been led down the garden path. He announces that Charity has been seeing Cain behind his back.
The congregation are stunned and Sadie smirks as Tom calls Charity a scheming, conniving, little tart. Charity pleads with Tom that she’s been set up. As Tom marches out of the church Zak attempts to stop him but Jimmy gets in his way and Zak thumps him. Charity catches up with Tom outside and he tells her that he never paid to sleep with a woman until he met her. Tom pushes Charity to the ground. All hell breaks lose around them as the Kings and the Dingles lay into each other. Sadie smirks at Charity as she sits on the ground crying.
Charity tries to explain to her family that she’s been set up and tells them that she has to go and see Tom. Tom returns to Holdgate Farm with his family and tells them to leave him alone. He sits with a bottle of whiskey and the photos and wonders where it all went wrong. On the walk up to Holdgate Farm Chas and Charity figure out that Cain wouldn’t have wrecked the wedding by himself and realise that Sadie must have been behind the photos.
Charity arrives home and bangs on the door only to be met by Sadie and Jimmy. Charity tells Sadie that she knows exactly what she's been up to and warns her that she’s not finished with her yet. After Charity leaves Matthew looks at Sadie with contempt and tells her that she must be over the moon. Charity returns to the Dingles in despair and tells Chas that no one is ever going to believe her because of her past involvement with Cain. When the family return she tries to explain what must have happened but no one looks convinced.
In search of more booze Tom goes to the wedding pavilion and discovers Shadrach making off with a crate of drinks. Tom lets him go and continues to drown his sorrows. Matthew comes in and Tom admits that he did an awful thing today. Matthew leaves Tom alone and Charity walks in on him. She begs him to believe that Sadie set her up. Tom refuses to listen and says ‘once a whore, always a whore’. He knocks Charity to the ground and storms off leaving her weeping on the dance floor.
