Don't Tell the Bride, Series 5 Episode 5 of 12

Duration: 1 hour

24-year-old Harry and his 28-year-old fiancée Mel live in a beautiful seaside village called Manorbier on the Pembrokeshire coast in south Wales. Harry is a hardworking fisherman, loves everything about the sea and is drawn to it at any opportunity. Mel is a mobile hairdresser and her world is very different to Harry's. She is self-conscious and always likes to look good for her man. To keep Harry interested she spends six nights a week at the gym, but although Mel loves her man, she doesn't love his job. She hates the sea, is terrified of boats and prefers a classy night out instead of fishing in the early morning.

So does Harry put his love of the sea before the love of his life? With a bride that finds it hard to trust him, will he get led astray?
Can this fisherman really give this land loving girl the wedding of her dreams?
