After a night spent talking, Christian forgives Syed for losing the family’s money and wants to sort it out together. Syed can’t, and bolts. Masood tells AJ the partnership isn’t a real marriage. Syed arrives, Christian hot on his heels. Masood thinks their relationship isn’t worth ruining over a kiss. Although devastated, Christian won’t let it ruin everything. Syed’s distressed that the kiss with Danny meant something - he was desperate to feel like he was someone. Christian insists he’s scared too, and can’t bear losing Syed but won’t marry him if he’s just trying to please everyone, leaving him with an ultimatum – marry for love or not at all. At the Argee Bhajee, the Masoods try to delay the Registrar. Roxy apologises for her outburst at the stag party and agrees to lend Christian money. Lucy’s sorry she can’t make the ceremony. Christian arrives at the Argee Bhajee with Roxy and Amy as a bridesmaid. The wedding guests wait anxiously while, at the Masoods’, Syed sits staring at his wedding suit. The Registrar’s about to leave when Syed rushes in. Christian and Syed make their vows and are declared joined in legal partnership. A black van pulls up on the Square, unbeknownst to the celebrating wedding guests. Masood’s making a speech when bailiffs enter the Argee Bhajee with a court order for possession due to four months mortgage arrears. Zainab rounds on Tamwar. Syed’s guilt-stricken.

Denise hurries Fat Boy out of the B&B, insisting their night together was a mistake. Kim drags her to the wedding. Later, AJ invites her to the pub; seeing Fat Boy watching, she feigns sickness and leaves. Fat Boy offers to fetch Tamwar’s forgotten best man speech.

Jean forgets something from her wedding flowers and races to the Argee Bhajee in time to shower everyone in flower petals.
