Mad dash for Emmerdale bride Nicola

Nicola De Souza races against the clock to make it to the church in time for her wedding.
The Emmerdale vixen, played by Nicola Wheeler, plans to tie the knot with fiance Jimmy King (Nick Miles) but, by horrible coincidence, her court hearing for biting toddler Cathy Hope falls on the same day as her nuptials.
In Thursday night's hour-long episode, viewers see Nicola spared punishment at the last minute when Cathy's mother Viv (Deena Payne) has a change of heart and sticks up for her in court.
After hurriedly changing into her wedding dress in the toilets, Nicola faces a frantic dash back to the village before her guests are kicked out of the venue to make way for a funeral.
But with the wedding car clamped and time running out, the chances of the couple making it down the aisle look slim.
Actress Nicola said: "It's a mad dash to the church. Otherwise they'll be sharing the aisle with a coffin."
