Fans of Emmerdale will know that frantic Gennie Walker (Sian Reese-Williams) and her fiancé Nikhil Sharma (Rik Makarem) have tried everything they can think of to convince Gennie’s mum Brenda to undergo surgery to remove the brain tumour that could kill her if left untreated…

However, Brenda (Lesley Dunlop) has persistently refused to have the op, so in despair, in the episode that airs on April 1, Gennie furiously tells Brenda that as she’s evidently choosing to die rather than have the surgery, she can no longer have anything to do with baby Molly.

Gennie tells her devastated mum that it’s not fair on Molly to let her get close to and love her grandmother if she’s not going to be around much longer.

Gennie then storms off, but later, Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) tells her that she’s not going to win Brenda over with threats, and an already repentant Gennie apologises to her mum and they end the hostilities with a hug as Brenda tells Gennie she needs her family’s support now more than ever.

Then, in the episode that airs on April 3, desperate to cheer his fiancé up, Nikhil visits her mate Katie Macey (Sammy Winward) who plants the seed of an idea in Nikhil’s head when she suggests ways he could take Gennie’s mind off the drama with her mum…

Nikhil then races home and tells Gennie that he wants to bring the wedding forward, explaining that it’ll be something happy for everyone to look forward to. He’s delighted when Gennie agrees, adding that if the worst happens, at least Brenda will have seen her daughter wed.

On April 4, we’ll see Gennie and Nikhil call a family meeting to announce the wedding news, but they’re taken aback when Brenda reacts furiously, believing they’re only doing it to emotionally blackmail her into having the surgery.

Gennie tries to talk her mum round, but stubborn Brenda insists she won’t be at the wedding, while secretly, Nikhil begins to wonder if Gennie only agreed to marry him to ensure that her mother witnesses the event…

Will Brenda change her mind and go to the wedding? Or will there even be a wedding if Nikhil convinces himself Gennie’s marrying him for all the wrong reasons?
