It's Christmas Eve, but Max and Tanya are forced to call off their wedding as Lauren's alcohol-fuelled meltdown has destroyed everything - including Tanya's dress. Lauren is full of regret over her wild behaviour, but Max makes her feel better by letting her in on a secret - he is planning a surprise Christmas Day wedding for Tanya tomorrow!
Later, Max pays a visit to Derek, still livid after hearing about his recent attempts to blackmail Tanya. Confronting his older brother, Max makes it clear to Derek that after tomorrow, he wants nothing more to do with him. However, Derek is left furious by Max's attitude and decides that he wants revenge. Putting a plan into action, Derek makes a phone call that could see Max's world turned upside down…
Meanwhile, Alfie is completely devastated following recent events, although he tries to soldier on for Tommy's sake. Later, when Tommy is away spending time with Kat, Roxy suggests that Alfie should join her as she takes Amy to the local Santa's grotto. However, Kat has had the same idea and the Moons end up coming face-to-face at the grotto. Alfie blanks Kat, but tries his best to make a big effort with Tommy.
Later, Alfie attempts to put on a smile as he is the centre of attention at The Vic, where festive celebrations have turned into a lock-in. However, it's clear that Alfie is still struggling to hold things together.
Elsewhere, Lola is delighted when she pays a visit to Phil's and discovers that Lexi is home in time for Christmas, while Poppy returns and tells Fatboy that she wants to spend the festive season with him.
