Steve stays out all night, struggling to come to terms with Jim's news. He tells Andy about Jim sleeping with Fiona but Andy refuses to believe him. Steve confronts Fiona and demands to know if she has had sex with Jim. She breaks down as he throws her wedding dress at her and tells her it's the end of everything as far as he's concerned. Alan has a huge hangover after his stag party and goes to the church with his parents. Vera, Jack, Audrey, Alf, Alec, Deirdre, Jon, Liz, Andy, Chris, Angie and Rita attend the wedding. As Fiona arrives with her father she is sickened to see Steve enter the church and fears he'll make a scene. Maud shows Joe Dillon around the Corner Shop and is affronted when he offers £55,000 for it and not the asking price of £70,000. Afterwards he tells his friend Fred he offered what he told him to. As Fiona and Alan are exchanging their vows drunken Jim stops the ceremony and pleads with her not to marry Alan as she doesn't love him. DS Dave O'Grady and Lee Middleton throw him out of the church and Father Bradley takes shaken Fiona and Alan into the vestry. Fred sympathises with Maud over Dillon's low offer and tells her he'd buy it himself for £60,000. Maud isn't sure what to do. Liz tries to find out why Jim's wrecked Fiona's wedding but all he'll say is that Fiona needs saving from the bully. Fiona admits to Alan that she had sex with Jim but assures him the baby is his. Alan is horrified and refuses to marry her, telling her she's the McDonald family whore. Alan talks to the congregation, telling them the wedding is off. Alone in the vestry Fiona breaks down.
