Storyline

Milly is furious that O'Donnell has lied to her and ends their relationship. She makes up with Anna, who confides in her about Miles. Jo invites Kira to the wedding and she accepts. The wedding day arrives and as Anna refuses to reveal to Miles that she does indeed love him, it goes ahead. Egg asks Milly to marry him and she happily accepts. At the reception Rachel enquires to Milly about the now-spare room. Milly tells her that she has never liked her and that she will not be moving in. Rachel subsequently tells Egg about Milly and O'Donnell's affair. Egg is devastated and in fury breaks up with Milly. Ferdy has invited Lenny to the wedding and he tells him that he loves him. Milly realises that Rachel has spilled the beans and walks up to her and whacks her across the face in front of everyone. Unknown to everyone, the whole scene is being witnessed by a late arrival: Warren. Written by GusF

Quotes

Milly Nassim: [the final moments SPOILER; Egg has found out about Milly's affair and tearfully dumped her at Miles' wedding, just hours after proposing himself] It was Rachel who told him, wasn't it?
Anna: I don't know.
Rachel: [Rachel is dancing when Milly storms over] It wasn't me!
[Milly punches Rachel as hard as can be imagined in the face, and all hell is let loose]
Warren: [Arriving belatedly for the wedding and observing the pandemonium on the dance floor] Outstanding!
