Ken still can't anywhere to live. Emily starts to get overwrought and have wedding nerves. Ray takes Vicki Bright out on a boating lake. The residents wonder if the wedding will take place this time. A sulking Albert asks Ken how much rent he was willing to pay and is told £3 a week. Vicki tells Ray she has only recently broken off her own engagement as she realised she couldn't stand the thought of spending the rest of her life with her fiancé, much to her parents' disgust. Ray pushes her to attend the wedding. Emily insists that Ernie's moustache has to go. Len, Jerry and Stan organise a stag do for Ernie while Bet and Lucille do the same for Emily. Ray takes Vicki to her parents' house in Preston to pick up her dress for the wedding. He tells her that he's fallen for her. The men go to The Flying Horse while the women congregate in the Rovers back room. Emily confesses that she has no nerves but Ernie is the opposite and is sick in the pub. Vicki tells Elsie she feels tired. Emily slips out of the party for a quiet chat with Ena and tells her that this time it feels right. As the menfolk return home, Ernie is horrified when Stan refers to Emily previously jilting Leonard Swindley.
