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?
