Em­merdale What’s go­ing on?

Bray People - - CHRISTMAS -



In the­ory, Katie and Andy should be get­ting dou­ble the presents this year, as they’re due to walk down the aisle on Christ­mas Day. But it seems not ev­ery­one in the vil­lage will be turn­ing up with a gift voucher to wish them well. Ber­nice ad­mits to Kerry that she doesn’t think she can do the bride’s hair and make-up after all, as she’s still car­ry­ing a torch for the groom, and pre­sum­ably her pro­fes­sional pride wouldn’t al­low her to make Katie look aw­ful on pur­pose. She can’t duck out of the prepa­ra­tions all to­gether though, as she’s forced to work be­hind the bar dur­ing the fancy-dress stag night. A lovelorn bar­maid is the least of Andy’s prob­lems, as Robert puts in an un­ex­pected ap­pear­ance at the Wool­pack.

Andy re­luc­tantly agrees to let him stay, but this rare show of ci­vil­ity doesn’t last long and the brothers end the night by brawl­ing at their par­ents’ grave­side. It would be a disturbing spec­ta­cle even if Andy wasn’t dressed as Ginger Spice, but Vic­to­ria and Diane can’t help wor­ry­ing that Robert has some­thing even worse in mind. And he isn’t the only po­ten­tially wed­ding-wreck­ing lose can­non, as a hun­gover Kerry spends the morn­ing retch­ing in the gen­eral vicin­ity of Katie’s dress, and a drunken Ber­nice lurches to­wards the church. Will the cer­e­mony go ahead? What­ever hap­pens, it seems un­likely Robert will be on Katie and Andy’s 2015 Christ­mas card list, but he also risks get­ting the New Year off to a bad start with Chrissie, when he sneaks off to see Aaron, leav­ing Lach­lan home alone. The teen has been sup­ply­ing Belle with le­gal highs to ‘help’ her deal with her prob­lems, and when she finds Lach­lan has the place to him­self, she con­vinces him to take one with her. Sadly, he suf­fers an ad­verse re­ac­tion and be­gins fit­ting, leav­ing Belle wracked with guilt – and Chrissie won­der­ing why her fi­ancé wasn’t around to keep an eye on them. Else­where, Moira has fi­nally had enough of Char­ity and tries to kick her out of But­ler’s Farm, but the newly re­turned Cain is re­luc­tant to make his cousin home­less. Megan is feel­ing down about her first Christ­mas with­out her fam­ily, but Jai has a plan to cheer her up – by propos­ing. She’s wor­ried that he sees her as a po­ten­tial step­mother rather than a wife, and her doubts are only fu­elled when they spot the man who sold him Archie. Ross man­ages to put a smile on April’s face – and a scowl on Lau­rel’s – when he brings her a gift on Christ­mas Day, and preg­nant Ni­cola is rushed to hos­pi­tal.
