The new face at The Woolpack has caused quite a stir as the locals gossip about Val. Val leads Diane to believe she has been beaten up by an old boyfriend and is clearly in a bit of trouble. But Diane has seen it all before and is unsympathetic towards her sister. As the crowds gather downstairs for the engagement party, Jack goes to see what is keeping his bride-to-be. Sensing an atmosphere, Jack is curious as to why the two sisters don’t get on, but wants to concentrate on enjoying Diane's evening ahead. He puts the ring on Diane's finger and leads her towards the party. Later Diane reluctantly agrees that Val can stay for a while. Bemused by their relationship, Jack wonders whether Diane might be jealous of Val, Diane tells him not to be fooled by her charm. Robert agrees that he should be heavily involved in the arrangements for Andy’s stag week. Little does the grateful groom-to-be realize that his brother has been heavily involved with his fiancée too! The high jinks begin with a dare for Andy to chat up Viv Hope. Heavily laced, Andy makes a fool of himself as he falls over and ends up looking up Viv's skirt. Elsewhere in the village, unlucky in love Nicola is keen to make the right impression as she cooks dinner for Simon on their first official date. But her efforts in the kitchen end in disaster and her culinary skills leave a lot to be desired.
