There is plenty occurrin' in the finale, what with the least traditional wedding you've likely ever seen on television. A bride and groom dressed, respectively, as Cleopatra and Antony?

Big Alan and Celia nail their fancy dress theme as they tie the knot in front of their nearest and dearest. The only problem is how they're going to pay for their big day...

Congratulations are in order for Stella as well after she aces her nursing exams, not to mention Michael, who lands the job in London - will Stella give the lawyer a reason to stay, though?

A familiar face returns, too, when Rob stops by to help son Luke not only settle his debts but confront his spiralling gambling addiction.

Avoiding spoilers, a knock at the door at the episode's end sets up the next trip to the valleys (scheduled for 2016)...
