It's the morning after the night before and a very hung over Marlon can't remember much. He certainly doesn't know that Paddy and Emily witnessed his steamy encounter with Steph. But as his memory comes flooding back, Marlon turns to Paddy who confirms his worst fears.
Meanwhile Tricia's hen night is proving to be a raging success as the ladies pile out of their limo into the bars of Leeds. As the drinks flow, Steph is having difficulty controlling her jealousy as the women congratulate Tricia on how wonderful Marlon is. Worse for wear, Emily can't hold her tongue any longer as she reveals to Steph that she saw the kiss and knows about her sordid past. Convinced she'll blab, Steph offers to take drunken Emily home, threatening her to keep silent.
Drink also gets the better of Viv, who is in her element when the limo driver tells her how attractive she is. While all the other girls dance the night away, she is unable to resist his flirtatious charms and takes him up on his offer in the back of the limo.
Back at the village, Marlon nervously approaches Steph to find out what she's playing at. But he isn't prepared for Steph's honesty as she declares he's the man for her and begging him not to go down the aisle with her daughter.
True to their word, the Dingles have all rallied round to gather the now unaffordable essentials for Tricia and Marlons wedding. But they cunningly haven't spent a penny. Gatecrashing another wedding proves to be very profitable indeed, as they swipe all the decorations they can - while the reception is in full swing.
Much to the Dingles' amusement, there is still no sign of Ashley - last seen disappearing into the night with a nun in suspenders in the back of a van. Abandoned in the countryside, the vicar and the "nun" wait to be rescued, but will Ashley make it back to conduct the big wedding?
Date: Thursday 17 October Time: 8:00pm to 9:00pm

It's the day of the wedding and over the course of the morning the village buzzes with excitement as the residents busy themselves with the final preparations. Steph and Marlon both appear pre-occupied - but nobody suspects their secret and put it down to last minute nerves. But the trouble doesn't end there as Paddy encourages a despondent Marlon to open up. He reveals that Steph declared her love for him and fears that Steph may tell Tricia.
Bubbling with excitement, the girls gather to get the bride to the church on time - but they hadn't planned for Latisha to accidentally get chewing gum stuck in Tricia's hair. Seizing an opportunity to throw a spanner in the works, Steph blows the situation out of all proportion. Things go from bad to worse, though, when Tricia spins round to see the damage - only to crick her neck!
Members of the congregation arrive and begin to anticipate the wedding with excitement. But with Tricia in a neck brace and Steph insisting they go to hospital - things certainly aren't going to plan. Meanwhile Marlon takes Steph aside and launches into an impassioned attack on her pursuit of him. He deplores her selfishness and her hypocritical gestures of support to Tricia. Steph's devastated by the final rejection - but how far will she go to spoil the big day?
With the odds now stacked against Tricia and Marlon, can the happy couple make it down the aisle or are there still more surprises to come?
The Happy Couple!
