The wedding invite of the year has arrived, and its a right royal affair in Hollyoaks.
Mercedes McQueen is set to get married for the sixth time, tying the not with fiance Russ this week. But it looks like its set to be absolute anarchy.
Paying tribute to the end sequence of The Crown season two, where chaos reigned over the royal family, the McQueens gather for a lovely family portrait only for it to descend into utter mayhem.
Dressed to the nines with a royal red carpet and an elegantly regal set up, the family are the picture of sophistication. Except this is the McQueens, and theres no such thing for them.
The disorder of their wedding photos gives an insight into just how things will go this week, when Mercedes is set to tie the knot for the sixth time.
With the family harbouring so many secrets, the day is guaranteed not to go off without a hitch. But just who will be in the firing line?
Will Mercedes manage to get all the way to the vows without her dirty little secret of her affair with cousin Sylver coming to light? Goldie knows, and shes not the type to keep quiet. And then theres the fact Goldie slept with Russ and blackmailed him over keeping quiet.
In the video, Mercedes can be seen losing her cool as the madness of her family escalates, a hint of things to come as we already know that she turns violent and throws a punch, but whos on the receiving end?
Everything and anything could stand in the way of a Russ Owen and Mercedes McQueen wedding, actor Stuart Manning, who plays Russ, teased. I think its so important that everything goes off without a hitch, because they are trying to prove to everyone that they are the perfect couple, but clearly, they are not!
Asked if the couple are meant to be, he added: I think they are, as Mercedes has always been Russ first true love. Mercedes cant help herself, and doesnt seem to be happy with anyone.
The one hour special will air at 6pm Friday 16 November on Channel 4, and 7pm Thursday 15 November.
