It’s been around 17 years since Mandy Dingle (played by Lisa Riley) was last seen in the village, when she attempted to win back hubby Paddy Kirk after cheating on him with her university lecturer.
But she’s certainly got terrible timing as Mandy decides to return to the village just as the wedding of Marlon Dingle and Jessie Grant is getting underway. She bursts through the church door and announces she is the surprise second witness for the ceremony alongside a very awkward Paddy!
However, Mandy doesn’t exactly get a warm welcome, especially not from her cousin Chas Dingle who is now all loved-up with Paddy.
The two women clash outside the church, when Chas snaps and all hell breaks loose. Catfight alert!
Meanwhile, Charity Dingle is pleased when her son Ryan Stocks returns, having decided to give his mum another chance on the advice of villager Dawn Taylor.
But when it becomes clear that Ryan is still romantically interested in prostitute Dawn, will Charity resort to more dirty tricks to keep the pair apart?
Elsewhere in the village, Matty Barton shares his big change-of-life decision with family friend Faith Dingle and reveals he’s decided to have a mastectomy. But will Matty listen when Faith warns him of the possible consequences?
And Belle Dingle is freaked out when a bunch of dead flowers are delivered to her. But who is the sender? Could her killer ex-boyfriend Lachlan White be behind the frightful flowers?
