Despite all the hitches in the build-up to the pair's big moment, love will come through in the end as they exchange their vows at the Argee Bhajee as planned - with a tearful Christian (John Partridge) particularly moved by how far they've come as a couple.
Once the pair's official union is confirmed, Masood (Nitin Ganatra) is the first to make a speech - declaring how proud he is of Syed and how he's gained another son now that Christian is part of the family.
Syed (Marc Elliott) is delighted that things have gone so well, but he's not smiling for long as a group of bailiffs suddenly burst into the restaurant.
Masood tries to get rid of the unexpected visitors, but they make it clear that they're not going anywhere as the mortgage is four months in arrears. To make matters worse, they literally pull the plug on the happy day by cutting off the electricity!
Zainab (Nina Wadia) and Masood are appalled to hear that the family business has a £12,000 debt, and immediately turn to Tamwar for an explanation.
Knowing that he's the one who is really to blame, Syed slips out of the restaurant - just as a furious Zainab is ready to launch herself at Tamwar (Himesh Patel). Will Syed really let his brother take the heat for this?
