'EastEnders' wedding drama, Corrie fury, E'dale slap, 'Oaks arrests

By
EastEnders businessman Ian Beale faces an impossible decision as his wedding day arrives later this month.

Ian (Adam Woodyatt) becomes determined to make a fresh start in the coming days, wanting to marry Mandy Salter (Nicola Stapleton) as soon as possible before moving his family away from Walford.

Albert Square's long-standing resident is so fixated on his plans that he refuses to cancel the wedding even after Mandy's mother Lorraine passes away, promising his fiancée that they'll have a magical day regardless of her sad news.

Lucy (Hetti Bywater) is furious that nothing seems to be stopping the wedding, so when the big day arrives, she causes more trouble by throwing away Mandy's wedding ring.

When a manic Ian discovers what Lucy has done, he demands that she gives him Cindy's ring instead. Ian then puts the ring on Mandy's finger, leaving his daughter appalled.

At the end of her tether, Lucy tries one last time to stop the wedding by giving her dad an ultimatum - choose her or Mandy. What will Ian decide?

Over on Coronation Street, Eva Price takes drastic action when she suspects that Nick Tilsley is cheating on her with Kylie Platt.

Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) is determined to get revenge as she fears that Nick (Ben Price) has been making a fool of her, vowing that she'll settle the score by humiliating him in return.

Later at the Bistro, Nick asks Kylie to waitress for the civic dinner, which further fuels his paranoid girlfriend's theory. Sean Tully is also involved in the preparations, making hotpots in the Bistro's kitchen following a dispute with Rovers boss Stella.

Nick enjoys feeling important as he tends to the mayor, but as the VIP tucks into his hotpot, he nearly chokes as it's too spicy.

As Nick apologises profusely, Eva calls the room to attention and reveals that she added the extra kick to the hotpot - as her boyfriend has been trying to spice up his life by having an affair with his brother's wife.

With gossip spreading through the Bistro, Nick and Kylie are stunned and all hell breaks loose as a furious David (Jack P Shepherd) launches himself at his wrongly-accused sibling...

Meanwhile, Hollyoaks sixth former Bart McQueen is in for a shock when his family are arrested.

With exam time arriving for the teens, things seem to be looking up for Bart (Jonny Clarke) as Jen suggests that art college could be ideal for him - which even impresses Diane.

However, when an upbeat Bart arrives home, he's stunned to witness the rest of the McQueens being hauled away by the police, who have discovered his cannabis farm in the loft.

As the McQueens face tough questioning, they all stay loyal by keeping Bart's name out of the matter. Despite this, his troubles are only just beginning when a threatening Brendan makes it clear that he expects repayment for the weed.

With the pressure piling up, Bart decides to go on the run and Sinead (Stephanie Davis) is keen to go with him. However, Bart wrestles with his conscience as he doesn't want to destroy his girlfriend's bright future. Will he do the right thing for Sinead and his family?

Over on Doctors, change is afoot at The Mill as the staff struggle without practice manager Julia Parsons following the long-serving character's exit.

Daniel and Heston are hopeful that they can soldier on without Julia, but problems soon arise when Heston inadvertently delays the payment of most staff members by implementing a flawed new payroll system.

As Zara (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) arrives back at work, everyone breathes a sigh of relief as they believe that she'll rectify all of the mistakes. However, Zara is overwhelmed when she realises that the others expect her to take on Julia's old duties.

Taking back control, Zara calls a partners' meeting and insists that a permanent replacement for Julia is needed. In the meantime, she interviews both Karen (Jan Pearson) and Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw) as she wants one of them to provide temporary cover.

In the end, Mrs Tembe lands the temporary position - just as she and Karen have both realised that they don't actually want the job due to the stress involved. Knowing that it's too late to back out now, Mrs Tembe feels an overwhelming sense of dread…
