Hayley's relatives - Aunty Monica and Great Uncle Bert arrive for the wedding. Hayley has to convince Bert that she is a woman and isn't just going through a phase. Les locks Toyah in her room to stop her going to the wedding. Spider helps her escape out of the window. When Leanne insists they have nothing more to say to each other, Nick buys a one-way ticket to Canada. She is stunned he is leaving immediately. Roy is despondent on his wedding day, believing he isn't good enough for Hayley. Martin panics that he's going to jilt her but Roy is just doubting himself. Les calls in the local press and tells them about the wedding - hoping for money - but they trick him into revealing a woman is marrying them and guess it's at St. Paul's Church. Leanne doesn't stop Nick leaving but tells him that she'll never forget him. He tells her that he's not going to waste time remembering her. She breaks down as he leaves. Emily and Spider wait at the church and are horrified when the press turns up. Emily worries that the publicity will ruin Jessica Lundy. Ashley drives grief-stricken Nick to the airport. Whilst Jessica keeps the press occupied, Emily stops the wedding party and tells them they've been hunted down. Roy tells Hayley they'll have to call the whole thing off.
