The Last Shout - The Last Shout - Part 2
Edina has arrived home from her skiing holiday with Patsy, convinced after her meeting with God that she is the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Meanwhile, Gran is living with noisy American grey nomads Mack and Millie in their motor homes outside Edina's house. Bo is also in residence, hiding from the Scientologists and awaiting word from Marshall, who is still with them.
Saffy is soon at breaking point trying to plan her wedding amid the chaos, and Edina offers to help realise her daughter's simple vision. However, with Paolo's parents about to visit, Edina realises that the potential in-laws are an astoundingly wealthy industrialist couple.
Paolo's pretentious mother Kalishia is unimpressed with Saffron and her family and refuses to let Paolo marry her. Patsy, however, recognises Kalishia as a colleague from the her days making seedy sex movies in the 1960s and blackmails her into allowing the wedding.
Eddy sets about turning the occasion into a major media event with top magazines vying for photos and a wedding gown designed by Christian Lacroix. Marshall arrives incognito, and the rest of Edina's extended family, as well as her and Patsy's kooky colleagues and celebrity clients, all arrive for the wedding.
Paparazzi line the steps of the church and Edina replaces the bridesmaid, Saffron's friend Sarah, with the Gucci model that she has hired. The ceremony is all going to plan, but Eddy begins to feel uneasy about whether her daughter will be happy with the arrogant, chauvanistic Paolo.
When the Vicar asks if there is anyone who objects to the marriage, God appears and gives Edina the nod. She lunges from her pew and halts the ceremony, ordering the Gospel Chorus she has hired to sing something - and they break into Oh Happy Day. As the guests begin to leave, the family are all screaming at Edina for what she has done; Kalishia introduces Paolo to Georgina, the slim, blonde Gucci model.
A few days later normality has been restored in the Monsoon household and Saffron agrees that Paolo was wrong for her. Patsy lets slip that they're about to go away on holiday - after all, Saffy doesn't want her honeymoon now, does she?
