Eva and Aidan are loved up as their wedding day arrives. Will tells Michelle that Maria has finished with him. Michelle invites him to the wedding as her plus one but turns down a lunch date with him, saying she's busy. Maria tells Eva she can't make the wedding as Liam is still poorly. Toyah lets Peter in on Eva's plan to dump Aidan at the altar and the fact that there is no baby. Jenny refuses to go to her own wedding until she knows the results of Rita's MRI scan. Rita disappears from her hospital bed. Norris and Mary arrive at Radio Weatherfield for the live final of the Mr & Mrs Weatherfield competition and meet Colin Callen, marketing head from the competition's sponsor NewsCo. Colin makes it clear that they're his favourites. Eva presses on with her scheme and gives Adam the keys to the factory. Maria tries to warn Aidan that Eva is lying to him but he thinks she's being a sore loser. Michelle goes to Highfield Prison to see Robert, unaware that Will has followed her. Leanne thinks Eva is losing the plot and refuses to go to the wedding. Maria arrives at Coleridge Manor Hotel ahead of the wedding party. Michelle is shaken when she sees a single white rose on her windscreen outside the prison; Ruairi's flower. Adam hands the factory keys to a man in the Street. Wandering around the hospital, Rita finds a pianist playing for the patients and joins in as a singer. Jenny locates her and takes her back to her room. Rita becomes confused and thinks she's back in her club singing days; she doesn't recognise Jenny. Johnny switches the weddings around to give Jenny more time with Rita. Aidan is overwhelmed with guilt when Kate tells him that their mum would be proud of him. He immediately confesses to Eva that he cheated on her and begs her forgiveness.
