We love a good white wedding in soap world, but in the case of Emmerdale's Charity (Emma Atkins) and Mack (Lawrence Robb), walking down the aisle is the last thing on their minds.


To put it plainly, anything that could go wrong does go wrong, and whether the unlikely couple will get married is truly anyone's guess.

If that wasn't enough drama, Mack's in for a shock when he discovers Chloe (Jessie Elland) has gone into labour with his baby – that Charity still doesn't know about.

Will the big secret come out? Will Charity and Mack make it down the aisle? And what on earth has Bernice (Samantha Giles) done now?

Read on for all your Emmerdale spoilers for Monday 17th April to Friday 21st April.

Mack begs Cain over the phone to stall Charles, explaining they're on their way. Much to their surprise, a knight in shining armour arrives - it's Swirling behind the wheel of the A-Team van! Finally, the A-Team van pulls up at the church just in time and Charles agrees to marry them - even though they are in their fancy dress!
