Could a last-minute blunder by Zak put paid to their nuptials?


Zak Dingle is to put his wedding to Joanie Wright at risk in next week’s Emmerdale when he makes an embarrassing faux pas on the eve of their nuptials.


Scenes to be broadcast on Monday 8 August see a drunk Zak staggering home from his stag do – but when Joanie comes to his rescue by pulling him out of a bush, she’s left shocked when he accidentally calls her Lisa!


The morning after the night before sees a hungover Zak worrying that he’s made a fool of himself. Joanie, meanwhile, is left feeling torn when Zak tells her he loves her.

In other news, bridesmaid Belle is being tormented by Ellie, the manifestation of her psychosis. And when Joanie admits to Belle that she’s feeling nervous, Belle starts shaking and fixes her gaze on the startled bride to be. Just what is Belle planning?


Later, Kerry’s disturbed to learn from Belle that Joanie’s disappeared and Lisa’s shocked to find Joanie waiting for her in her wedding dress. Expect Lisa to be left floored by what Joanie has to say.

All of which will leave Emmerdale fans asking: will Zak and Joanie end up getting married or not? Well, what we can say is that, by Wednesday, Chas will be seen suggesting to Zak that Lisa isn’t coping as well as she’s making out. Zak then reassures Lisa that he’s still there for her if she needs him.


As for Joanie – she’s also in a bad way and – after running into Lisa – it seems that a big decision is set to be made…
