So what does Marlon do to wipe the happy smiles off the faces of newlyweds Rhona and Paddy?
…Forgotten his best man speech? No, it’s much more serious…
Marlon stopped being excited about Rhona and Paddy’s wedding when he heard they were moving to New Zealand with his son, Leo
He tells Paddy and Rhona he is so hurt that he can’t bring himself to be Paddy’s best man
And Marlon tells Laurel that he’s seen a solicitor, who has told him he has rights as Leo’s father…
Blissfully unaware of Marlon’s actions, Paddy and Rhona say ‘I do!’
Paddy and Rhona seal their union with a kiss and head off to celebrate at their reception, looking forward to their new life in New Zealand
At the reception, though, trouble is brewing – and not because Chas is jealous of Cameron and Debbie
Chas cheers herself up by flirting with Dan – so she’s definitely wearing her champagne goggles
Paddy, though, only has eyes for Rhona – and no wonder! She makes a beautiful bride!
Things are about to turn ugly, though. Marlon didn’t ruin their wedding ceremony, but he can’t bring himself to toast the happy couple
Marlon asks Rhona and Paddy for a quiet word – and that word isn’t ‘Congratulations’
Marlon quickly makes the happy couple very unhappy by telling them he has applied for a court order to keep his son Leo in Emmerdale
Marlon’s announcement has knocked the wind out of Paddy, but Rhona’s furious
‘You’ve done what?!’ Rhona tells Marlon he’s going to have a fight on his hands
Next day, newlyweds Paddy and Rhona have no time to enjoy marital bliss as they confront Marlon
Rhona points out in no uncertain terms that Marlon is not having her son
And Marlon points out that Paddy is not having his son!
Just in case anyone’s unclear, Marlon states it clearly: Paddy is not Leo’s father!
Ouch! Just how dirty will this fight get? Watch Emmerdale, ITV1, from Monday, August 6
