Wedding day confession?
Will Pete tell bride Leyla about his affair with Priya?
Pete doesn’t know what to do – he’s torn between these two beauties!
Pete Barton is a nervous groom as he prepares to wed Leyla Harding
– and it’s not just because a helicopter crashed into the village the last time he got married. He’s had an affair with Leyla’s best mate and maid of honour, Priya, and is worried that he’s making a big mistake.
And things don’t get any easier when Adam spies Sarah getting money out of Pete. As Adam demands answers, Pete’s forced to admit that he and Priya had a fling, and he has been paying the schoolgirl to keep quiet.
‘Pete’s in turmoil and doesn’t know what to do with himself,’ says Anthony Quinlan, who plays him. ‘He feels like he should do the right thing by being with Leyla, because she’s amazing and she loves him to bits. But he’s torn between these two beauties!’
Pete isn’t the only one having a wobble, though. Leyla’s worried that her wedding will be a washout, and is also suspicious after clocking a look between Pete and his Auntie Moira. She still has no idea that the pair slept together last year.
As the big day arrives, Pete resolves to come clean, but Adam urges him to live with his lie. Meanwhile, Leyla panics that it’s too much, too soon. Roxy Shahidi, who plays her, says: ‘Her desire to lock down the man she loves was so big, and now that she’s coming close to getting that, she’s thinking “Is this 100 per cent right?”’ On edge, Leyla delays her entrance down the aisle by adjusting her hair and make-up. Unsettled by her late arrival, Pete pops to the loo and, while he’s in there, he makes a big decision. Will he come clean about his big betrayal?
