The countdown continues to Debbie Dingle and Joe Tate’s wedding day, after the couple officially got engaged last month.

But talk about a whirlwind engagement. While Debbie is making a hospital visit, fiance Joe arrives and asks to speak to her in the hospital chapel.

Puzzled by Joe’s strange behaviour, Debbie is taken by surprise when Joe announces he wants them to get married…today! Will Debbie agree?

Meanwhile, preparations are underway for the charity masquerade ball at Home Farm. But when Joe’s right hand man Graham Foster gets wind of the whirlwind wedding plans, he suspects Joe is up to something.

With Graham already aware Joe forged Debbie’s signature on the wedding prenup agreement, and with his own grudge to settle after Joe recently saved his own skin by leaving Graham at the mercy of vengeful drug dealer Connor, will Graham find a way to wreck the wedding?

Graham slips away from Home Farm to wait for a mystery someone outside some prison gates.

That someone is none other than Kim Tate, the original bad gal of the village! But how does Graham know Kim? And just what are the two of them planning?

Elsewhere, a vengeful Ross Barton is still on the prowl for Simon McManus, the thug who left him scarred after a shock acid attack.

Following a tip-off from prostitute Dawn about her fomer pimp Simon, Ross arms himself with a bag full of duct tape, rope and plastic ties and sets off on a mission of revenge…
