Further details

Munch is slowly driving Gaz mad through his total failure to ever, ever go away. By looking sad and pathetic, Munch gets Donna and Jonny's sympathy. At the end of his tether, Gaz tells Jonny that if he likes Munch so much, he can have him as his best man.

The preparations for the wedding go from bad to worse when the two bridesmaids decide they can't stand the sight of each other. Louise finds out that, a year ago, Donna had a one-night stand with David. Accusations - and punches - fly.

With Gaz, Donna, and Janet's parents all saying they won't come to the wedding, and with the prospect of Munch and Louise as the dysfunctional best man and bridesmaid from hell, things are looking pretty bleak for poor Janet. Especially when the registrar rings to tell her that there's been a cancellation. Her wedding takes place tomorrow.

Gaz is thrilled at Donna's new attitude and tells her so, walking home. He wonders aloud whether she might wear shorter skirts and if he could get off with other women. The new, relaxed Donna refrains from another angry outburst, and instead pushes him calmly into the canal.
