The day has finally arrived: 80 year-old Grandma is getting married to the horrible 85 year-old, Mr Morris. Mum is in pieces but tries to stay calm. The boys are fed up, as Mr Morris has insisted they wear matching brown suits with big white bow ties: "We look like pimps!" says Jonny. On top of this, Grandma is really nervous "You do think I'm doing the right thing, marrying Lou?", she asks mum.

The boys are to take Mr Morris to the synagogue, but Mr Morris - seeing that the back of Adam's trousers are all wet (Jonny soaked them earlier) - forces Adam to sit in a bin bag ("I won't have you soiling your grubby bottom in my vehicle!").

Finally the wedding ceremony begins. Grandma - in her big white, wedding dress, walks down the isle towards Mr Morris, as mum tries hard not to cry.

But when it comes to Grandma's time to say 'I do', what will she say? Will she, or won't she?
