That means you're in charge.

WOMAN GASPS

0:00:130:00:15

Mum and Dad have no idea what you're planning.

0:00:150:00:18

Oh, wow.

0:00:180:00:20

You've only got a few weeks to do it all.

0:00:200:00:23

Helicopter time.

0:00:230:00:25

Are you ready for it?!

0:00:270:00:28

Ha-ha-ha! Get 'em!

0:00:290:00:31

-Are your parents ready for it?

-ALL: Yeah!

0:00:310:00:34

Pretty scary.

0:00:340:00:35

Will the day be filled with chaos...

0:00:350:00:37

NAOMI GASPS

0:00:370:00:39

..or confetti?

0:00:390:00:40

ALL: Whoo!

0:00:400:00:43

On today's show, a dynamic duo want Mum and Dad

0:00:440:00:47

to have an absolute ball on their wedding day.

0:00:470:00:50

LAUGHTER

0:00:500:00:52

But with the pressure on...

0:00:520:00:54

-Have we got long enough to do this?

-I don't know.

0:00:540:00:57

..will our wedding planners hold their nerve?

0:00:570:01:00

-I don't want to it, I'm too nervous.

-You don't want to do it?

0:01:000:01:03

We're about to find out cos we're marrying Mum and Dad.

0:01:040:01:07

Welcome to Marrying Mum And Dad, the show where the kids take

0:01:320:01:36

charge of one of the most important days of their parents' lives.

0:01:360:01:39

Their wedding day.

0:01:390:01:40

Yeah, that's right, guys just like you are in control.

0:01:400:01:43

It's up to our wedding planners to make the day a success.

0:01:430:01:46

With just a little help from us.

0:01:460:01:48

We're in Merseyside where a team of cousins are ready to organise

0:01:500:01:54

a wedding like no other.

0:01:540:01:55

Meet our wedding planners - cousins Ewan and Charlotte.

0:01:570:02:01

Hi, I'm Ewan, I'm ten years old

0:02:010:02:02

and I like riding my bike and football.

0:02:020:02:04

Hi, my name's Charlotte, I'm 11 years old.

0:02:060:02:08

I love having fun and riding on my skates.

0:02:080:02:11

Ewan lives with his mum, Kyra, dad, Billy and little brother, Oli.

0:02:130:02:17

My dad is funny and caring.

0:02:170:02:21

My mum is fantastic, funny and amazing.

0:02:210:02:25

And to help him plan his parents' big day,

0:02:250:02:28

he's recruited cousin Charlotte.

0:02:280:02:30

Ewan's really funny but I'm the organised one

0:02:300:02:33

so he really needs my help.

0:02:330:02:36

Ewan's mum and dad have been together for 17 years

0:02:360:02:39

and engaged for six so what's taken them so long?

0:02:390:02:43

We've just never ever decided which way to do it

0:02:430:02:46

and this just seems the right way, for the children to plan it all.

0:02:460:02:50

But Dad's been putting off the big day for a different reason.

0:02:500:02:54

I'm shy and I hate surprise parties or parties for me so it was

0:02:540:02:57

one of the things that always put me off and then, look what happens.

0:02:570:03:02

Oh, yes, Dad, you're in for the biggest surprise of your life.

0:03:020:03:06

Ewan can't wait for Mum and Dad to finally say, "I do."

0:03:060:03:10

They love each other so much.

0:03:100:03:12

I feel very happy that my mum and dad are actually getting married.

0:03:120:03:17

And cousin Charlotte wants to do her bit.

0:03:170:03:19

Auntie Kyra and Uncle Billy are really lovely people

0:03:190:03:22

and they're kind to me so I just want to give them something back.

0:03:220:03:26

Mum and Dad are ready to walk down that aisle.

0:03:260:03:29

It's a huge next step forward in our little life together.

0:03:290:03:32

It just feels like it's the final piece of the jigsaw.

0:03:320:03:35

Mum and Dad have been together for ever so it's time they got married.

0:03:350:03:39

We don't want to wait another minute so we're taking over.

0:03:390:03:42

There's now less than two weeks before Mum and Dad

0:03:420:03:44

walk down the aisle and there's still everything to organise.

0:03:440:03:47

Yeah, there's the theme, the venue, the outfits.

0:03:470:03:50

Not to mention the transport, the cake and the entertainment.

0:03:500:03:53

-Come on then. Chop, chop.

-All right.

0:03:530:03:55

'Before we can get planning, Mum and Dad need to hand over control

0:04:000:04:04

'to Ewan and Charlotte with younger family members supervising.'

0:04:040:04:07

Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today to mix things up a bit.

0:04:090:04:13

Do you, Mum, allow the children to completely

0:04:130:04:16

and utterly organise a wedding day you will never forget?

0:04:160:04:19

I certainly do.

0:04:190:04:20

And do you, Dad, accept you'll have absolutely no say in what goes on?

0:04:200:04:24

I do.

0:04:240:04:25

Then with the joining of hands, I now pronounce you,

0:04:250:04:28

Ewan and Charlotte, officially 100% in charge.

0:04:280:04:31

CHEERING

0:04:310:04:35

'With Ewan and Charlotte firmly in charge,

0:04:350:04:37

'it's time for the first decision - the theme.'

0:04:370:04:40

-Right then, you two, what theme are you going for?

-Strictly Come Dancing.

0:04:420:04:47

-Yes! Why? Why that theme?

-Well, my mum and dad both love the show.

0:04:470:04:52

Strictly Come Dancing is all about the glitz

0:04:550:04:57

and glamour of ballroom dancing.

0:04:570:05:00

Celebrities partnered with professional dancers

0:05:000:05:03

strut their stuff and sparkle from head to toe.

0:05:030:05:06

And we're going to do it Marrying Mum And Dad style.

0:05:070:05:10

Question is, are Mum and Dad amazing dancers?

0:05:100:05:15

Well, my mum is but my dad just hates it.

0:05:150:05:18

How does your dad dance?

0:05:180:05:20

-Oh, dear. Proper dad dancing then.

-Oh, no, really?

0:05:200:05:23

-He can't dance at all, basically?

-No.

0:05:230:05:25

Are you hoping to get him dancing?

0:05:250:05:26

-Yeah.

-What, in front of everybody at the wedding?

0:05:260:05:29

ALARM RINGS

0:05:290:05:31

I think what puts me out of my comfort zone is being

0:05:310:05:33

the centre of attention and having to perform and dance.

0:05:330:05:39

-You've chosen a theme he's going to love(!)

-Yeah.

0:05:390:05:41

Just hope Dad doesn't get wind of this

0:05:410:05:43

and go waltzing off before his wedding day.

0:05:430:05:46

That's the theme sorted - a Strictly spectacular wedding.

0:05:460:05:51

There's only two weeks until Mum and Dad dance up the aisle

0:05:540:05:57

so we've come straight to Blackpool.

0:05:570:05:59

It's been the Mecca of ballroom dancing for over 100 years.

0:06:010:06:05

And Tower Ballroom has hosted two Strictly Come Dancing finals.

0:06:060:06:11

To inspire our wedding planners, we've lined up a Strictly surprise.

0:06:110:06:15

Aliona Vilani and Matthew Cutler are Strictly Come Dancing pros.

0:06:170:06:23

Wow.

0:06:240:06:25

MUSIC: "Diamonds" by Rihanna

0:06:260:06:29

Aliona won with McFly's Harry Judd...

0:06:330:06:37

and Matthew with Alesha Dixon

0:06:370:06:38

so they know all there is to know about Strictly success.

0:06:380:06:43

'After that stunning performance,

0:06:470:06:49

'we pick their brains about all things Strictly Come Dancing.'

0:06:490:06:53

If we're doing a Strictly Come Dancing wedding, what does it need?

0:06:530:06:57

Strictly is all about dancing, couples dancing.

0:06:570:06:59

Are you planning a bit of dancing?

0:06:590:07:01

-We thought that me and Ewan could dance together.

-Can you dance?

-No.

0:07:010:07:05

-Oh.

-LAUGHTER

0:07:050:07:07

Is there anything we can put together

0:07:070:07:09

that these two could do at the wedding?

0:07:090:07:11

Yeah, I think we can get a little routine going.

0:07:110:07:14

'Even though it's our wedding planners' idea,

0:07:140:07:17

'Ewan is nervous about dancing on the big day.'

0:07:170:07:19

Are you OK with that?

0:07:190:07:21

I'm dead nervous. I get dead nervous.

0:07:210:07:23

It's only our family, though.

0:07:230:07:25

-And we've got pros here.

-Mm-hmm.

0:07:250:07:26

Now, if they can't help us do this then nobody can.

0:07:260:07:29

Have you had a think about outfits? Because Aliona's dress is

0:07:290:07:32

absolutely beautiful and sparkly, what have you thought?

0:07:320:07:36

-We have got this dress but in that colour.

-You want it in bright pink?!

0:07:360:07:40

-Yeah.

-How are you going to get them to the wedding?

0:07:400:07:43

-Have you thought about transport?

-Yeah.

-Yeah, we want like a limo.

0:07:430:07:47

-Is that how you two travel?

-Always.

-Exactly the same.

0:07:470:07:50

Wow, you guys want a lot, we have got our work cut out here.

0:07:500:07:54

Help!

0:07:540:07:56

'We better get moving with our wedding planning.

0:07:560:07:58

'First up, it's the transport.'

0:07:580:08:01

The planners want limos so we've lined up some top-of-the-range ones

0:08:030:08:08

for Ewan and Charlotte to try out.

0:08:080:08:10

'There are hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of cars to

0:08:120:08:15

'choose from and Ewan and Charlotte head straight for the biggest one.'

0:08:150:08:18

-Oh, my God.

-Oh.

0:08:200:08:22

'And there's even more glitz and glamour inside.'

0:08:220:08:24

This is just well amazing.

0:08:240:08:27

Well, it's the first one and I already love it.

0:08:270:08:29

'Ewan and Charlotte are dazzled by this limo...

0:08:310:08:33

'..but then this catches their eye.'

0:08:350:08:37

-There's a whole lot of pink going on in here, isn't there?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:08:370:08:41

-It is a bit Strictly but it's...

-No.

-That's more Strictly.

0:08:410:08:45

'Decision made. The wedding car to beat all wedding cars.'

0:08:450:08:49

Sorry, pink limo, you're just too girly.

0:08:490:08:52

Transport done. Next up, it's the entertainment.

0:08:520:08:56

TRAM RINGS BELL

0:08:580:09:01

Cousins Ewan and Charlotte want to perform a dance to surprise

0:09:010:09:05

Ewan's mum and dad at the wedding, so we're back in Blackpool

0:09:050:09:08

to learn a routine from our Strictly Come Dancing experts.

0:09:080:09:12

THEY APPLAUD

0:09:160:09:18

We're going to teach you a foxtrot.

0:09:180:09:20

Are you excited? - A bit, yeah.

0:09:200:09:22

-I am.

-Yeah.

0:09:220:09:24

'But Ewan isn't so sure.'

0:09:240:09:26

-I feel how Ewan looks.

-Awww.

-Boys are a bit nervous about this.

0:09:260:09:30

'The girls are getting the hang of it but Ewan, just like his dad,

0:09:330:09:37

'isn't comfortable in the spotlight.'

0:09:370:09:39

You can do the walking bit.

0:09:390:09:41

'And now, he's not sure he even wants to learn the routine.'

0:09:410:09:44

-I don't want to do it, I'm too nervous.

-You don't want to do it?

0:09:440:09:47

-I'm too nervous.

-NAOMI GASPS

0:09:470:09:49

Will you be all right with practice?

0:09:490:09:51

-Hmmm.

-You probably will and then your mum

0:09:510:09:53

and dad will be proud of you as well.

0:09:530:09:56

'And with those encouraging words, Ewan gives it a go.'

0:09:560:09:59

..six, seven, eight.

0:09:590:10:00

'We need to learn the routine fast

0:10:000:10:02

'but whether Ewan can overcome his nerves is another matter.'

0:10:020:10:06

I'm feeling dead nervous that I can't do it, I just don't want to.

0:10:060:10:10

You can do it.

0:10:100:10:12

We're back in Merseyside where Ewan and his cousins Charlotte

0:10:180:10:22

and younger sister Erin have been working hard on a cake design

0:10:220:10:25

for this Strictly Come Dancing Marrying Mum And Dad wedding.

0:10:250:10:28

-I think that is the best one.

-Yeah.

0:10:280:10:31

They've decided to go all out on a Strictly glitter ball cake.

0:10:310:10:34

They've sent their design to the cake maker.

0:10:340:10:37

-Wow.

-Cupcakes.

0:10:370:10:40

'Now, we're off to see if Natasha can bring their idea to life.'

0:10:400:10:44

This is the glitter ball. We've got Kyra and Billy on the top.

0:10:440:10:46

-We want it to spin.

-Did you want it to spin kind of like this?

-Yeah.

0:10:460:10:52

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-That would be wicked.

0:10:520:10:54

-Does that look good?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:10:540:10:57

How do you eat it when it's made of polystyrene?

0:10:570:10:59

-It's not going to be edible, that bit?

-No.

0:10:590:11:01

It'll look like a real cake but between you and I, it won't be.

0:11:010:11:04

So then what? We'd have the cake underneath?

0:11:040:11:07

Of course but this will be the main focus of the cake.

0:11:070:11:09

How are we going to turn that into a glitter ball?

0:11:090:11:12

'To make the squares for our glitter ball, we're using sugar paste icing.'

0:11:140:11:18

Feels so nice!

0:11:180:11:19

If you want to take a bite out of it

0:11:190:11:21

if you're feeling a bit peckish, you can do because it is edible.

0:11:210:11:24

-Mmm, that is nice.

-NATASHA LAUGHS

0:11:240:11:26

-ED:

-'Looks tasty.'

0:11:260:11:27

-'And it was all going well...'

-I think we're doing fantastic.

0:11:300:11:33

I think we're doing fantastic as well, Ewan.

0:11:330:11:35

'..until...'

0:11:350:11:37

Don't look.

0:11:370:11:38

-ED:

-'Oh, Naomi.'

0:11:380:11:40

'With a lick of edible paint,

0:11:430:11:45

'it's starting to look a bit more Strictly.'

0:11:450:11:47

Wow, this is amazing.

0:11:470:11:49

'And it wouldn't be a glitter ball without...you guessed it.'

0:11:490:11:53

-Edible glitter!

-Do you want to have a little feel? See?

0:11:530:11:56

-Oh, look how sparkly your fingers have gone.

-And you can lick it?

0:11:560:11:59

-And you can eat it. What's it taste like?

-Plain.

0:11:590:12:02

This does look like a disco ball, doesn't it?

0:12:030:12:06

That's properly shiny, isn't it?

0:12:060:12:08

'There's still so much to do.

0:12:080:12:10

'We're going to leave the cake in the capable hands of Natasha.'

0:12:100:12:14

If you can finish this, you are going to be our hero.

0:12:140:12:18

That's the cake sorted, fit for our Strictly Come Dancing wedding.

0:12:180:12:22

Ewan and Charlotte are halfway through planning

0:12:250:12:28

Ewan's mum and dad's Strictly Come Dancing wedding.

0:12:280:12:31

Most weddings take months to plan but in just one week,

0:12:310:12:34

they've organised the theme, cake...

0:12:340:12:38

Wow, this is amazing.

0:12:380:12:40

..and entertainment.

0:12:400:12:42

They're doing really well but Ewan's worried about dancing on the big day.

0:12:420:12:46

I'm feeling dead nervous that I can't do it.

0:12:460:12:49

So we've been practising as much as possible to help build Ewan's

0:12:490:12:52

confidence. And cousin Charlotte is giving him lots of support.

0:12:520:12:57

Ewan, if you can do it in front of local people just walking past,

0:12:570:13:00

you can definitely do it in front of your family and friends.

0:13:000:13:03

'Never fear, Ewan. Next to me, you'll look like a Strictly pro.'

0:13:030:13:07

'But will he dance on the day? Who knows?'

0:13:070:13:11

With just a week to go,

0:13:130:13:14

Mum and Dad are starting to worry about what's in store.

0:13:140:13:18

I'm starting to really panic now.

0:13:180:13:19

I'll turn into this crazy bridezilla on the day

0:13:190:13:22

because I've been really calm and I'm genuinely looking forward to it.

0:13:220:13:26

'Mum does have one wish for the big day.'

0:13:260:13:28

The only thing I would want is my dad to walk me down the aisle.

0:13:280:13:31

It just means everything to me,

0:13:310:13:32

because my dad just means the world to me and you, Billy.

0:13:320:13:35

-We love him, don't we?

-Oh, you're going to set me off.

0:13:350:13:39

-Yeah.

-Aww, that's lovely.

0:13:390:13:41

Will Ewan make Mum's wish come true?

0:13:410:13:44

Grandad, Nan and Charlotte's mum can't wait for the big day.

0:13:440:13:47

What will it mean for you, finally walking Kyra down the aisle?

0:13:470:13:50

So proud.

0:13:500:13:52

It'll be fantastic. That's all I can say.

0:13:520:13:55

'There's not much time left.

0:13:550:13:57

'We still have to organise the venue but next up, it's the outfits.'

0:13:570:14:00

I thought maybe a bit of pink in it as well.

0:14:020:14:04

Ewan and Charlotte have designed a wedding dress for Mum

0:14:040:14:07

that's bright pink.

0:14:070:14:08

We've lined up top ballroom dress designers James and Fran

0:14:100:14:13

to give it that Strictly pizzazz.

0:14:130:14:16

-Whoo! How nice are these?

-Sparkly dresses!

0:14:160:14:21

-Some of these are from Strictly.

-Really?

-Yeah.

0:14:220:14:26

'And we've brought along Charlotte's sister, Erin,

0:14:260:14:29

'to see the results so far.'

0:14:290:14:30

-JAMES:

-All the sewing's done but it's only halfway finished.

0:14:300:14:34

-Oh, OK.

-There's no crystals on it. You ready?

0:14:340:14:36

-Wow.

-Wow.

-Wow.

0:14:390:14:41

What do you think Mum will look like, wearing that on her wedding day?

0:14:410:14:45

I think she'll look amazing.

0:14:450:14:46

-Do you think she'll mind it's not white?

-No.

0:14:460:14:49

-It's just as we pictured it.

-Yeah, is it exactly right?

-Yeah.

0:14:490:14:53

So now, the next step is putting all the crystals onto the dress.

0:14:530:14:56

Oh, it looks like a very delicate operation going on here.

0:14:580:15:01

'We've got to glue 6,000 crystals to Mum's dress.

0:15:010:15:05

'This is going to take ages.'

0:15:050:15:07

-Have we got long enough to do this?

-I don't know.

0:15:070:15:10

-Do you have to do each one by hand?

-Every single one.

0:15:100:15:13

-And we've got to cover the whole bodice?

-Yeah.

0:15:130:15:16

'Charlotte and Ewan are working hard

0:15:160:15:18

'to give Ewan's mum and dad the perfect day.'

0:15:180:15:20

Why do you want to do this for your mum and dad?

0:15:200:15:22

Because they've done lots for us

0:15:220:15:24

so I thought we could give something back to them.

0:15:240:15:26

Oh, that's so lovely.

0:15:260:15:28

'Mum's dress is going to look stunning but what about Dad?'

0:15:280:15:32

I don't think we want him in pink.

0:15:320:15:34

What he could do is wear just a normal white shirt

0:15:340:15:37

and we could make him a pink tie to match.

0:15:370:15:40

Can't wait to see them actually walking down the aisle,

0:15:420:15:44

it's going to be so amazing,

0:15:440:15:46

seeing them in what we've designed and what we've thought of.

0:15:460:15:51

Outfits done. Last on our list is the venue.

0:15:510:15:54

After seeing Blackpool Tower Ballroom,

0:15:570:15:59

cousins Charlotte and Ewan

0:15:590:16:00

have set their hearts on finding a similar venue closer to home.

0:16:000:16:04

I've brought them to Liverpool Town Hall,

0:16:050:16:08

one of the grandest, most impressive buildings in the city.

0:16:080:16:12

-What do you think of this?

-Whoa. Wow.

0:16:120:16:15

You said you wanted glitz and glamour.

0:16:150:16:17

I've been to Buckingham Palace, you know you can go around it?

0:16:170:16:21

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

-This is posher.

0:16:210:16:22

-This is the room...

-Whoa.

-..you could use for the ceremony.

-Wow.

0:16:230:16:28

When people arrive, they sometimes have a man who stands here

0:16:280:16:31

and shouts, "Will you please be upstanding for the bride

0:16:310:16:35

"and the father of the bride!?"

0:16:350:16:37

'All right, Ed, I think you've got the part.'

0:16:370:16:40

'This venue is perfect for the ceremony

0:16:400:16:42

'but the best is yet to come.'

0:16:420:16:44

-Whoo!

-Whoa.

-Wow.

0:16:460:16:49

'Looks like the venue is a winner.'

0:16:490:16:51

It's pretty awesome and glam, isn't it?

0:16:510:16:53

-How would you like to make it even more showbiz?

-We could have...

0:16:530:16:56

-A disco ball.

-..a disco ball hanging from up there.

0:16:560:16:59

Where else can you see there being some glitter balls here?

0:16:590:17:02

-Like as a table piece.

-Anything else?

0:17:020:17:04

I think we could have like a judges' panel.

0:17:040:17:06

We need a judging table that we can sit at.

0:17:060:17:08

Yeah, I can judge a dancing competition, I reckon.

0:17:080:17:10

You've seen my dancing, it's pretty good, I know what I'm talking about.

0:17:100:17:14

'We'll be the judge of that, Ed.'

0:17:140:17:16

That's the venue done. We're ready to strut our stuff on the big day.

0:17:180:17:22

Cousins Ewan and Charlotte have been working flat out

0:17:240:17:27

over the last couple of weeks to organise a wedding

0:17:270:17:30

that would normally take months to plan.

0:17:300:17:32

-Woo-hoo!

-Whoo!

0:17:320:17:34

-Glamourous outfits?

-Tick.

0:17:340:17:36

I think she'll look amazing.

0:17:360:17:38

-Luxurious limo?

-Tick.

0:17:380:17:40

And show-stopping entertainment? Tick, tick, tick.

0:17:400:17:43

Question is, will Mum and Dad like it?

0:17:430:17:46

It's the day before the wedding

0:17:510:17:53

and we've just enough time to squeeze in a bit more dance practice.

0:17:530:17:56

It's really coming together but Ewan still doesn't believe in himself.

0:17:560:18:02

Time for some moral support.

0:18:020:18:04

We're putting in a call to our Strictly pro, Aliona Vilani.

0:18:040:18:07

But even after the call,

0:18:200:18:21

Ewan is still worrying about tomorrow's performance.

0:18:210:18:24

I'm not sure I even want to do it. I'm just dead nervous.

0:18:240:18:29

Please don't say that.

0:18:290:18:31

-Why?

-Because!

0:18:310:18:34

It's tomorrow, the wedding, and we can't just say no now.

0:18:340:18:37

And now he's concerned about his dad's reaction to the theme.

0:18:370:18:41

He even said, "The worst wedding I would ever have

0:18:410:18:44

-"would probably be singing or dancing."

-I know.

0:18:440:18:49

That makes me a little bit nervous.

0:18:490:18:51

Dad's panicking too.

0:18:510:18:52

I'm just hoping it's not my nightmare theme and I haven't got to

0:18:520:18:55

sing and dance and learn a routine or anything silly like that.

0:18:550:18:59

This should be interesting.

0:18:590:19:00

Are we heading towards a dancing disaster of a wedding?

0:19:000:19:03

The big day is here.

0:19:070:19:09

Mum and Dad are getting married in Strictly spectacular style.

0:19:090:19:13

It's going to be glam, it's going to be sparkly,

0:19:130:19:16

it's going to be sequined and I...can't...wait!

0:19:160:19:19

At the house, the family are getting all glammed up

0:19:210:19:23

and the nerves are kicking in for Mum.

0:19:230:19:26

To not know anything is just bizarre.

0:19:260:19:28

I didn't think it would feel this strange.

0:19:280:19:30

To not know the venue, what I'm wearing,

0:19:300:19:32

to not even know how I'm going to get there

0:19:320:19:35

or what it's going to be in, it's just crazy.

0:19:350:19:37

Preparations at the venue are full steam ahead

0:19:370:19:40

to shower it in Strictly glamour.

0:19:400:19:42

There are the table centre glitter balls

0:19:420:19:45

and the judges' table our wedding planners wanted.

0:19:450:19:48

Ed's doing his best to help.

0:19:500:19:52

Oh. I've been doing that with all the chairs.

0:19:520:19:55

Quite glad that's the last one.

0:19:550:19:58

'And I've got the all-important outfits.'

0:19:580:20:00

Hello, you all right?

0:20:000:20:04

Oh, is this mine?

0:20:040:20:05

What have we got?

0:20:050:20:07

-Here's your outfit, I hope you like it.

-Ohhh.

0:20:070:20:10

'The wedding planners are all dressed up and ready to go.'

0:20:100:20:13

Look at us. All ready for a ball, I reckon.

0:20:130:20:16

What will Mum and Dad make of their outfits?

0:20:160:20:18

They're going to probably think it's amazing.

0:20:180:20:21

-Will they be pleased?

-Yeah.

0:20:210:20:22

'This is it.

0:20:240:20:25

'Once Ewan's mum and dad see their outfits, is the cat out of the bag?'

0:20:250:20:30

-OK, Mum and Dad, are you ready to see what you look like?

-Yeah!

-Yeah.

0:20:300:20:33

-What are you thinking?

-Oh, I just can't wait.

0:20:330:20:35

ALL: One, two, three!

0:20:350:20:38

KYRA LAUGHS

0:20:390:20:42

-CHARLOTTE:

-Don't you look amazing?

0:20:420:20:44

Look at you. Oh, look at you guys!

0:20:440:20:49

Oh, I love it! Definitely dancing, isn't it? Like ballroom dancing.

0:20:490:20:53

Is that what it is? Ballroom?

0:20:530:20:55

Do you want to tell them?

0:20:550:20:57

-ALL:

-One, two, three, Strictly Come Dancing!

0:20:570:21:02

'It's a hit with Mum but Dad's not looking so sure.'

0:21:020:21:05

I think what puts me out of my comfort zone is being

0:21:050:21:08

the centre of attention and having to perform and dance.

0:21:080:21:13

-How about having a dancing wedding? Is that OK?

-That's fine.

0:21:130:21:16

-Oh, he's fine with it.

-As long as I don't get a seven.

0:21:160:21:18

Don't give me a seven.

0:21:180:21:20

-ALL:

-Seven!

0:21:200:21:22

Phew.

0:21:220:21:23

'Mum and Dad's carriage has arrived to take them to the wedding.'

0:21:230:21:27

-No.

-Whoo!

0:21:270:21:29

-It's got lights in it and everything.

-Let's go.

0:21:330:21:35

'Let's go to the ball.'

0:21:350:21:37

Thank you very much, it's going to be a day that we're never,

0:21:370:21:41

ever going to forget, are we, eh?

0:21:410:21:42

-No.

-Well done.

0:21:420:21:44

As they arrive in the city centre, Mum spots the venue.

0:21:450:21:49

It's not the Town Hall, is it?

0:21:500:21:52

'Yes, Mum, you're getting married there.'

0:21:520:21:55

Oh.

0:21:550:21:58

And our glamourous guests are ready to receive the bride and groom.

0:21:580:22:01

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:22:030:22:07

'Seeing their friends and family, Mum is overwhelmed with emotion.'

0:22:100:22:14

'And so are the guests.'

0:22:150:22:17

-I've brought tissues.

-Thank you.

0:22:170:22:19

-Are you ready to get married?

-I'm dying to get married.

-Yeah?

0:22:210:22:25

'At long last, it's time for Mum and Dad to get married.'

0:22:250:22:28

Will you please be upstanding for the bride and father of the bride?

0:22:290:22:34

'Mum gets her wish - for her dad to walk her down the aisle.'

0:22:360:22:40

Kyra, I give you this ring on our wedding day

0:22:420:22:44

and I promise to give you my love and friendship.

0:22:440:22:46

MINISTER: To comfort you and to support you.

0:22:460:22:48

To comfort you and to support you.

0:22:480:22:50

These promises I make to you for the rest of my life.

0:22:500:22:52

MINISTER: And it now gives me the greatest of pleasure to tell you

0:22:520:22:55

that you are now husband and wife together.

0:22:550:22:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:22:570:23:01

'After 17 years together, Mum and Dad are finally married.'

0:23:020:23:07

'How does it feel?'

0:23:080:23:09

It's just exceeded everything I even thought.

0:23:090:23:13

This is just overwhelming, absolutely fabulous.

0:23:130:23:17

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, please welcome our newly

0:23:170:23:20

married couple, Kyra and Billy, and our amazing wedding planners!

0:23:200:23:24

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:23:240:23:27

'First up, we've got a Strictly surprise for Mum and Dad

0:23:280:23:31

'and our wedding planners.'

0:23:310:23:33

We have got a very special message for Mum and Dad.

0:23:340:23:38

Hi, Kyra and Billy.

0:23:380:23:39

No way.

0:23:390:23:41

Look who it is, it's the old judge, Len Goodman,

0:23:410:23:43

wishing you a sparkling wedding day.

0:23:430:23:46

Ewan and Charlotte, you did a great job.

0:23:460:23:49

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:23:490:23:52

'Let's get this party started.'

0:23:520:23:53

There's even more Strictly Come Dancing magic now.

0:23:540:23:58

Please welcome to the floor Strictly's very own

Matthew Cutler and his dance partner Nicole!

0:24:010:24:04

CHEERING

0:24:040:24:06

'The room is going wild for our ballroom dancers.'

0:24:120:24:15

'But Ewan is looking a little nervous

0:24:170:24:19

'about his dance coming up next.'

0:24:190:24:21

-We've got to get up there, haven't we? Yeah?

-I don't know.

-Yeah?

0:24:210:24:27

You can hide behind me. Yeah?

0:24:270:24:30

Whoo!

0:24:320:24:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:24:350:24:37

Ladies and gentlemen, we need to tell you that Ewan

0:24:410:24:43

and Charlotte didn't just want to arrange today's entertainment,

0:24:430:24:47

they wanted to be the entertainment so please give them

0:24:470:24:50

a great, big round of applause as they take to the dance floor.

0:24:500:24:53

CHEERING

0:24:530:24:55

'This is it, show time.'

0:24:550:24:57

Whoo!

0:24:580:25:00

Yeah!

0:25:030:25:06

'It's not long before Ewan forgets his nerves

0:25:060:25:08

'and starts enjoying himself.'

0:25:080:25:10

'And everyone's with him.'

0:25:130:25:16

MUSIC: "One Way Or Another" by One Direction

0:25:160:25:19

'Mum and Dad are blown away with our Strictly entertainment.

0:25:210:25:24

'Little do they know that they, too, will be hitting the dance floor.'

0:25:240:25:28

'Ewan and Charlotte have brought the house down with their performance.'

0:25:320:25:36

'It's time to reveal the glitter ball cake.'

0:25:370:25:40

KYRA SCREAMS

0:25:400:25:43

'And now, another surprise for Mum and Dad.'

0:25:460:25:49

Ewan's got a little announcement for Mum and Dad.

0:25:490:25:52

You thought you escaped dancing but you two will have to dance.

0:25:520:25:56

BILLY LAUGHS NERVOUSLY

0:25:560:25:59

'Remember, Dad's terrified of dancing.'

0:25:590:26:02

I can't believe the kids made me do this.

0:26:020:26:05

'Being a good sport, Dad goes for it.'

0:26:050:26:08

CHEERING

0:26:090:26:12

Steady on, Dad.

0:26:120:26:14

'I think we've found a new Strictly star in Mum.'

0:26:170:26:20

'And Dad sweeps Mum off her feet.'

0:26:290:26:32

I can't believe I actually danced with a proper Strictly Come Dancer.

0:26:320:26:35

You did very well, well done.

0:26:350:26:37

'It's 10s all round. But what about Strictly's head judge?'

0:26:390:26:43

It's not a seven!

0:26:430:26:45

It's a 10 from Len.

0:26:450:26:46

CHEERING

0:26:460:26:49

'With the day coming to a close,

0:26:490:26:51

'has the wedding been a perfect 10 for Mum and Dad?'

0:26:510:26:54

Best day, absolutely without a shadow of a doubt.

0:26:540:26:56

Apart from the kids being born, it's been the best day of my life.

0:26:560:26:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:590:27:01

Getting to dance with professional dancers was unbelievable.

0:27:010:27:04

It's been amazing. Sometimes you just have to do it but it was great.

0:27:040:27:07

-You faced your fear.

-I faced me fear.

-Well done.

0:27:070:27:10

'Do our wedding planners think the day has been a Strictly success?'

0:27:100:27:14

-The day's been amazing.

-It's been amazing, it's been a hit.

0:27:140:27:17

I'd say it's all been amazing.

0:27:190:27:21

It's all been funny and all good,

0:27:210:27:23

not one bit of today has been boring.

0:27:230:27:25

I just want to tell them how much I love them

0:27:250:27:27

and how very, very proud I am of them and they gave me and Billy

0:27:270:27:31

the best wedding day ever and it's just priceless,

0:27:310:27:34

isn't it, what they've done?

0:27:340:27:35

Very, very proud.

0:27:350:27:37

CHEERING

0:27:380:27:41

-Just time for one last dance move.

-Oh, yeah.

-Get on the floor.

0:27:410:27:44

-What?

-Don't worry, I've seen them do this on Strictly.

0:27:440:27:47

Great thing about this is it helps with the cleaning as well.

0:27:470:27:51

Are you sure about this?

0:27:510:27:52
