ROY’S RATTLED BY HIS LACK OF DISTRACTIONS Cathy wakes to find Roy cancelling the church. Disappointed, she hints at a change of heart but Roy doesn’t take the bait. Cathy’s aghast to realise that Roy’s rash has vanished and assumes he’s relieved. Roy cancels the flowers and the reception, and calls on Ken and Anna to explain that the wedding is off. Anna’s secretly relieved she won’t have to leave the flat. Alex is annoyed at Nessa for causing chaos. Unrepentant Nessa blames Roy for going back on his promise to Cathy. Roy listens, his conscience pricked. Sensing Cathy’s regret, Roy points out it was she who called off the wedding. Exasperated Cathy explains she was merely seeking comfort from him. The misunderstanding aired, will Roy decide the wedding must go ahead after all?
NICK WARNS PETER TO KEEP HIS DISTANCE Seeing Nick’s paranoia, Robert urges him to confront Peter to warn him off Leanne. Leanne and Peter arrange to throw an early Christmas Day celebration so that Peter can see Simon open his presents. Nick visits No.1 and tells Peter to stay away from Leanne.

In despair, Brian and Tyrone hit Roy with some home truths but is it too little too late?

How ridiculous is Eileen? She's known Phelan all of 10 minutes but is willing to back him in the face of obvious fraud (regardless of his level of complicity)? When did Den Mother turn into Complete Moron?

I cannot fathom why anyone in the year 2016 would interpret an engagement as the type of promise worth trapping yourself in a loveless marriage for. Isn't the engagement period when you are supposed to decide if you really want to spend the rest of your life with this person? People change, better to go your separate ways before it becomes legally binding! And who is Nessa to Roy that he feels she can shame him into keeping this "promise"?? Another person whose been in his life all of the blink of an eye.

Nessa is one to talk about keeping promises.

Poor Roy. I find this storyline a bit difficult to watch. They should have never rushed to get married. Cathy has become blind to everything except the wedding

Every episode I see with Cathy makes me dislike her more and more.

Todd & Billy - yes, that's the answer to everything, go out on the lash! Doh!

And why not? They've not had a lot of opportunity previously because of Billy's vocation. Let them enjoy themselves for a change

I hope Roy and Cathy do not get married. It's not necessary and I, for one find Cathy's character grating and condescending. Just IMO.

In all of this business about the wedding, what's happening to Cathy's house? Perhaps I've missed it, but it seems to have been conveniently forgotten.

I'm not totally annoyed with Cathy at the moment although her previous obsession of a fairy tale princess wedding using Roy's hard-earned, hard-saved money is unbelievably silly story-wise -- her character we were led to believe isn't supposed to be like that, and it was borne out by the contrasting personalities coming out when sister from the Black Lagoon Nessa popped up unexpectedly. Maybe they should or shouldn't get married, I find it hard to care as I'm not invested in this plotline due to poor writing.

I would definitely like to see more of the Steph character developed -- the actress has got potential but she's not had much of a main storyline. Pity. All the storylines going to the younger cast are concentrated in that awful Plat/Tilsely family.

Lynne from Ottawa -- I hate seeing Roy being badgered by Cathy; he's definitely suffering and she can't see it because she's planning the fairy tale wedding -- at her age. I hope that Roy doesn't tie the knot; they don't even have anything in common. The relationship started with Roy trying to be kind... and look where that landed him.
