When Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) spots Myra McQueen (Nicole Barber Lane) and Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) drunk in the village he gives a sly smile.

MERCEDES AND MYRA MCQUEEN

Myra with Mercedes on her not so long ago wedding day to Russ Owen!

With their double wedding day looming, it’s clear he’s out to whip up trouble now that his partying partner Mercedes has kicked him into touch and has declared her love for Sylver, her childhood sweetheart and the man she’s about to marry.

Sylver was recently shot during a scuffle with Liam

Liam has already had a fiery run in with Sylver (David Tag) and the two have not only come to blows but Sylver was also in the firing line when Liam’s gun went off. What is Liam going to do next to make his bitter rival pay?

Elsewhere Mitchell Deveraux (Imran Adams)  is embarrassed with his grandfather’s rude treatment of Cleo McQueen (Nadine Rose Mulkerrin). He and Cleo were just about to kiss when Walter (Trevor A Toussaint) barged in and made his feelings about Cleo and his disapproval crystal clear.

Mitchell is keen to make things up to Cleo and apologise for Walters’s shoddy behaviour. He tells her that if she still needs a date for Mercedes and Myra’s wedding he would love to be her plus-one. Goldie (Chelsee Healey) intervenes and tells him the answer is definitely yes! He’s coming to the wedding!

Meanwhile bridezilla Myra (Nicole Barber Lane) agrees to have a scaled down wedding so that she and her head-teacher partner, Sally St Claire,  can still have a double wedding with Mercedes and Sylver.

Mercedes and Myra enjoyed a wild hen night

Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) had been concerned about the whole thing being lavish and OTT but Myra agrees to cut back and have a more paired down day just to keep Mercedes on board.
