The guests arrive at Les and Cilla's wedding reception to find that Status Quo have already eaten the buffet thinking it was for them. The Quo's hairdresser lets them down so Candice steps into the breach. Violet sets off for the wedding reception intent on getting back together with Jason. The DJ turns up in costume thinking he's playing a Halloween party. Sarah has a moan to Jason about Scooter. Jason tells her he's always fancied her. They go outside and start snogging. Best man Billy Brown hands over to Kirk to make the speech. Cilla's delighted with the wedding presents - toaster, kettle, flat screen TV etc. The Quo offer Candice the job of being their full-time hairdresser and travelling the world with them. She accepts. Violet looks for Jason but he's left the reception. She leaves and tries at No.11 but there's no reply. Jason and Sarah rush upstairs intent on going to bed together. Les and Cilla cut the cake only to find they stole a cardboard display model and not a real cake. Les finds the Quo in the present room. He thinks it's their dressing room. Les starts smashing up all the presents, living the life of a hedonistic rocker, not realising the items are his. Cilla goes ballistic. Watching who he's married to, the Quo feel sorry for Les and pull him up on stage insisting he perform with them. Les is in heaven.
