"Just as the service is about to start, Marlon and Laurel realise they have a lot of talking to do and head home in an attempt to work things out; and Debbie prepares to make Declan believe she was the one who had the termination." (TV Times synopsis)


Megan is shocked when Declan tells her that she was right - Charity lied about the abortion. Just as the wedding service should be starting, Marlon and Laurel realise they have a lot of talking to do and head home to work things out. Both are devastated and unsure how to fix things. As they open up about how they've been feeling, Laurel blurts out that she kissed Ashley. Jai arrives back in the village and tries to smooth talk Leyla, but she throws it back in his face by chucking the bouquet in the bin. Marlon tells Laurel that he understands, confessing that he did the same with Donna. Megan arrives, surprised to find Jai in her office. He gives her the same flowers and Megan passionately pulls him onto the desk. Dan is surprised when Kerry is willing to move past him having sex with Ali and resume their relationship. She promises she won't say anything to Ruby. Chas tries to talk Debbie round, explaining that Charity loves Declan and is vulnerable. Marlon and Laurel convince each other that they do want to get married with the truth now out in the open and the service finally gets underway. Leyla has a change of heart after receiving a text from Jai and decides to resume her affair. Marlon and Laurel read their vows to each other. Debbie arrives at Home Farm and lies to Declan that it was her that had the abortion. The wedding reception gets underway at The Woolpack. Lisa's ecstatic when she finds out Sam has dumped Tracy and welcomes Laurel to the family when she refers to Tracy as being a tart. Debbie puts on a convincing performance to quash Declan's doubts, when she explains how hard it was to go through with the termination after the difficulty she had with Sarah. Doug warns Marlon that he'd better not hurt Laurel. Charity is surprised when Declan arrives at The Woolpack and apologises for doubting her.
