Alec is startled to find Des and Les coming round on the floor of the Rovers as he tidies up in the morning. Natalie, unaware of a tear in her wedding dress (mended by Hayley) or the marquee (supplied by Charlie West) collapsing on Martin's fence (and later decorated in style by Hayley), gets married to Des at Weatherfield Register Office. The married couple return to a reception where Dobber tries to steal a present and Les reminds everyone that they never knew which door either Des or Natalie would walk out of in the morning. Liz goes home to change and ends up letting Michael Wall in - the inevitable happens. She returns to Jim who announces to all that he'd be the happiest man alive if Liz would marry him again.
