Emmerdale viewers were delighted to see Belle Dingle make an unexpected but low-key return to the village on Christmas Eve.
She is back to spend the festive season with family after taking a break away to come to terms with her ordeal at the hands of murdering lover Lachlan.
On arriving home, she dropped a bombshell on Jessie – that Lisa and Zack were staying away for a little while longer.
Jessie then shared her own revelation with Belle… she is planning a surprise Christmas Day wedding to Marlon.
She’s suffering cold feet, however, as more guests appear to have declined than accepted the invitation.
And her planning has been hit by a string of disasters, not least the dog destroying the wedding cake.
But Jessie doesn’t know the half of it… Marlon, who doesn’t know he is set to tie the knot, got rip-roaring drunk with Sam.
They apparently ended up in a van which was headed for Bristol… a good six-hour drive away from Leeds!
Will either the bride or groom want to go through with the ceremony when he gets home?
It remains to be seen in tonight’s Christmas episode whether the wedding will actually go ahead.
Whatever, fans of the soap were glad to have a Dingle favourite back…
