If there’s anyone in Walford who deserves to ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after, it’s Heather Trott. But as her surprisingly subdued hen night gets under way, she’s having second thoughts about her impending nuptials. She’s discovered that her knight in shining armour not only has a temper but also has a “past”.

However, that isn’t what worries her. Her fear is that once she’s married to Andrew, there won’t be room for “Hev and Shirl” in her life any more. She’s right to be concerned. Heather’s time on the Square is limited but her departure is not the heart-warming one she — or we — would like.

About this programme

Heather feels uneasy as she goes on her hen night, and Shirley urges her not to marry Andrew. Things get more awkward at R&R when Rose accuses the bride-to-be of stealing her son, before Dot toasts the happy couple - but only leaves Heather more unsure about whether she can go through with the wedding. Meanwhile, Ian wrestles with his conscience as he considers revealing what Ben told him, and turns to Patrick for advice.
