Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) is determined to walk down the aisle in Emmerdale as he marries love of his life Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry), and despite a rocky start to the big day, he gets his wish.

He’s made it his mission to walk towards his fiancee during the service, and next week, he pushes himself hard, as he tries to get to his feet during his impromptu stag do.

His legs, however, suddenly buckle underneath him, and he falls to the ground. Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt), who is present for the accident, tries to convince him to get checked out at the hospital.

Marlon agrees, but only on the conditions that there is no ambulance, and that Rhona is kept out of the loop.
