It might be a dream come true for Mary, but we know the wedding to Norris Cole is all a sham to win a competition. Well, that escalated quickly.

Norris starts to get cold feet about the whole charade, and tells Mary he thinks they should call the whole thing off before they get caught out.

But Mary pleads with him to go through with it because Jude and his family are already on their way over – and they don’t know this ain’t no fairytale romance.

Mary doesn’t have the heart to tell Jude she’s faking a marriage to win a competition and she doesn’t want to disappoint him.

Jude arrives on Monday with his wife, Angie, and their young baby. Angie is immediately suspicious of Mary, who is downplaying the big day a bit too much.

She bombards her future mother-in-law with questions about her relationship with Norris at a last minute hen spa day and is determined to find out what Mary’s hiding.

Sounds a right nosey mare, this one!

As the day of the wedding dawns, Mary confesses to her little buddy Bethany Platt, that she feels bad for lying to her son.

Will she have a change of heart and confess everything before Norris puts a ring on it?

It turns out that Jude finding out about the sham marriage is the least of her worries when he tells her he wants to track down his real dad – just as he’s about to walk her down the aisle.

Jude doesn’t know he was the product of rape, after Mary was attacked as a teenager.

His request leaves her shaken and, as she makes a tearful confession to Gemma and Angie, Jude overhears everything and Mary is forced to admit the painful truth.

Just how will Jude react to this bombshell? Will he stick around to support Mary? Or will he be angry she kept the truth from him?
