Leyla's been dreaming of her big day for weeks. She initially proposed to Pete herself but after he turned her down he later popped the question himself. Roxy Shahidi, who plays Leyla, says it has been a great storyline to film even though the wedding dress was far from comfortable:

The wedding would be much simpler if it wasn't for the fact that in recent weeks Pete has been having a secret fling with bridesmaid Priya Kotecha (Fiona Wade). Both are feeling more and more guilty as the big day approaches. Fiona Wade admits her character knows she's been doing wrong but is struggling to resist her attraction to Pete:

Pete himself has considered coming clean to Leyla about his fling with Priya. Anthony Quinlan, who plays Pete, says he fears the wedding is heading for disaster:

Emmerdale screens the wedding in its episodes at 7pm and 8pm tonight (Thursday 17 August) when you can find out whether or not the ceremony goes to plan.
