The big day finally arrives for Mandy and Paddy, and it seems nothing can spoil their wedding now. Mandy admits to Lisa that she is suffering from last-minute nerves. But they counted without Eric. He's reported Mandy for assault and the police arrive at the Dingles in search of the suspect. The police spot Mandy running off into the distance and give chase, but are in for a shock when it turns out to be Butch dressed as Mandy. With the police off the scent, the Dingles manage to persuade Ashley to go ahead with the ceremony earlier than planned and enlist Betty's help to inform all of the guests. But all of their hard work is undone when she inadvertently lets Eric in on the secret. Paddy and Mandy arrive at the church, get out the rings, but the final commitment is interrupted and their special day comes to a halt when P.C. Clare Waite arrives for Mandy's arrest. Laura and Alan's suspicions are confirmed when they discover an inventory on Home Farm's computer which does not match Stella's version and the suspicion is laid upon Eric, who is reported by Laura to Angie. Zoe receives a ransom demand from Chris's kidnapper. And Sean faces an uphill struggle to get back in Angie's good book.
