Further details

Jonny goes round to plead with Janet's Dad, who's still refusing to have anything to do with the wedding. Mid-grovel, Jonny is shocked to find that Flo's in the house, alone with Mr Smith, and complaining that, "it's freezing in those stirrups."

Jonny returns home in triumph. He's blackmailed Mr Smith into pretending to approve of, and even paying for, the wedding. Janet bullies Jonny into an explanation for her Dad's sudden change of heart, but all that Jonny can think of in his state of panic is that her Dad is a cross-dresser.

Munch finds Gaz unconscious in the garage, finds a bottle of headache tablets, and assumes his brother has tried to commit suicide. Gaz is fine - he just drank too many lagers.

Donna tells Louise that Gaz has tried to kill himself because of all the stress of "the David situation". Her plan works, Louise forgives her, and they can both be bridesmaids again.
