Further details

The Sugartown wedding of the year is back on, which is good news for the whole community who haven't had much to celebrate of late, in the final part of the comedy-drama series revolving around a small seaside hamlet in the north of England.

But is Emily's heart in the right place? As she grapples with some unsettling nightmares, the best solution is to throw herself, and everybody else, into fevered preparations for the big day. She'll be far too busy to worry about whether she's marrying the right brother...

Meanwhile, Margery and the gang are harbouring a shocking secret about Max and the entire Burr family legacy. It could change the future of the town - but who will have the courage to tell Max or Jason?

The stress is taking its toll on everybody. It looks like it'll fall to Emily to deliver the bombshell that could send Max packing. But Emily's forced to question her motives for hurting Max. Is it to save the town or to pay him back for breaking her heart all those years ago? And besides, is getting the factory back worth any cost to the honourable Jason? Family is family after all...
