It's the day of Carl and Chas's wedding, and while there's a happy atmosphere at Brook Cottage with Carl, Chas is dreading the day ahead at Mill Cottage. Finally in her wedding dress and looking beautiful, Chas contemplates how she feels about being a bride. She's surprised when Paddy shows up with a gift, apologising for not being able to make it and claiming that she and Carl are meant to be together. At the church, Charity is dumbfounded when Chas starts to walk down the aisle with Zak. As the vows are read out, just as Chas is expected to say 'I will', she says, much to the surprise of the congregation, 'no'. She reveals that Carl had been having an affair with Eve, who she confronts. Chas floors Carl, and leaves the church in disgust. Carl follows after her and tries to explain his actions, before she deals him one final blow - she's not pregnant. Back at Mill Cottage, Carl pleads with Chas to take him back, but she packs her bags and leaves. Meanwhile, Aaron and Hazel are both excited as they finally take Jackson home. In Dale Head, Jackson is both sobered and impressed to see his new living arrangements. Later, Aaron hopes he's had a good day and Jackson tells him that he genuinely couldn't think of anywhere he'd rather be. Elsewhere, Katie's thrown when Henshall comes all the way to the village on Christmas Day to give her a present; Eric is on edge as he awaits the arrival of dinner guest Elizabeth; and Rhona looks to the future with Paddy and Marlon.
