As Lucy continues to secretly cancel all of Ian's wedding arrangements, Mandy begins to question why they are rushing into the ceremony. However, Ian can't be convinced to slow things down and launches a desperate bid to find bridesmaids and a best man. Ian makes a spectacle of himself by offering to pay Lauren and Whitney to be bridesmaids, before asking a surprised Fatboy to be his best man. When all three refuse to be involved and Derek and Jack start winding him up, Ian loses his temper and throws everyone out of the café.
Later, Max starts to feel sorry for Ian and offers to be his best man. At the same time, Mandy confides in Tanya by admitting that she still has reservations about marrying Ian - mainly because of the strained relationship she has with her mum Lorraine. Tanya advises Mandy to talk to her mum before starting her new life with Ian. As the day continues, Ian is shocked to learn that his wedding has been cancelled by 'Mandy Salter'. When Mandy returns home from the hospital, Ian confronts her over the cancellation. However, Mandy has other things on her mind - telling Ian that her mother has just died…
Meanwhile, Michael remains uneasy over the possibility of Jean working for Janine. Putting a plan into action, Michael causes Jean to miss her interview with Billy by bombarding her with details about her investment at the boxing club and how much it's helping the local community. Michael is pleased that his plan has worked, but he's taken aback when Jean confides in him - admitting that she still talks to Sean's photo. As Michael reveals his own pain over his mother's death, Jean hugs him. Will Michael start to feel guilty?
Elsewhere, Kim is compelled to tell Ray the truth about Sasha's 'talent', but the tense conversation ends up with the couple revealing their true feelings for each other.
