An unexpected visitor raises tensions with Rishi in Emmerdale as Laurel and Jai get married

Can Georgia convince Rishi to attend the wedding?

Prior to the wedding, Arthur makes efforts to repair the strained relationship between Rishi and Jai. But his attempts prove unsuccessful and Rishi is left in a state of depression. And Jai surprises Suni by asking him to be his best man.

When a taxi arrives at Mulberry, Jai is taken aback when his mother Georgia emerges from it. And his initial shock turns into anger, as he demands his mother returns home.

Striving to mend the rift within the family before her big day, Laurel tries to convince Jai to resolve the issues, but Jai's feelings and decisions remain unreadable. Later, in a drunken state, Rishi encounters Georgia while heading to confront Jai.

To Laurel's shock, Rishi soon makes a hurtful comment about her past abortion and Georgia becomes furious at the escalation caused by Rishi's intoxicated outburst.

The next day, Jai is astonished when a resplendent Laurel descends the stairs in her wedding dress. But their joy is dampened by the sudden arrival of Rishi and Georgia and Jai is left reeling when Rishi reveals the identity of his real father.

Pacing restlessly, Jai attempts to comprehend the shocking revelation, while Rishi becomes defensive. Tensions escalate between Georgia, Jai, and Rishi, resulting in a heated argument and Rishi storms out.

Frustrated, Jai assures Georgia he wants her to attend the wedding and she is grateful when he relents and allows Rishi to be present as well.

In the church, Georgia leaves a pleading message for Rishi, urging him to come to the wedding. But will he?

At Holdgate, despite feeling hurt and angry, Rishi listens to Georgia's message and as the ceremony begins, Georgia wonders where Rishi is.

As Jai and Laurel exchange vows and are pronounced married, prompting applause from the attendees, despite the joyous moment, Jai deeply regrets Rishi's absence on this important day.

Emmerdale continues Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV1
