For years, Marrying Mum And Dad
has been helping you guys get your parents hitched.
And one thing we've learnt is our wedding planners are really good
-at getting their own back.
And it's not just the kids,
their guests and us that have enjoyed watching parents suffering.
It's everyone watching the show, too.
-Groovy, baby, yeah!
-With the help of some of our biggest fans...
..that you may recognise...
..we're raiding the Marrying Mum And Dad vaults to bring you...
All fun and chaos and daft costumes.
That's right! It's Marrying Mum And Dad's...
BOTH: ..Most Outrageous Moments.
Absolutely anything can happen at a Marrying Mum And Dad wedding
and in this look at the most outrageous moments...
We made a right pig's ear of this one!
We start off with one mum, Julie,
whose marriage day make-up left her trying to guess exactly who she was.
So, let me set the scene - it's your wedding day,
you've been with your partner for years,
you cannot wait for the best day of your life.
Your kids have got the choice
of what to dress you as - and what do they put you in?
A big, green, scaly alien costume. Brilliant!
This intergalactic transformation took hours in the make-up chair
and tonnes of prosthetics.
While all the time,
Julie was completely in the dark about her alien alteration.
She's got green stuff on her face there.
There was green stuff there...
What are you hoping Julie might be looking like today?
I hope I'll recognise her.
That would be good.
And then round the lips, there was green stuff stuck on -
and then, right round the eyes, there were some green bits on.
She was covered in green stuff!
I can't believe... I've never seen anything like it!
What have the kids done?
They've turned you into a slimy, scaly, green alieny thingy, Mum.
Everyone's perfect wedding day look.
But when it came to the reveal,
nobody had any idea how Julie would react when faced with...
Well, her brand-new face.
Three, two, one!
-Oh, my God.
They were aghast!
Happy wedding day, Mum and Mum.
What do you think of that for a theme?
There's just a moment,
there's a moment where you can see in Amanda's eyes,
she's like, "I cannot marry this thing."
"Whatever it is, it needs to be quarantined
"and possibly studied by the government,
"but I'm not marrying it."
Why on earth have we let
our kids plan our wedding?
Why have they chosen this?
What have we done to deserve this?
My wife's a lizard now,
but we're on TV, so we've got to just keep going.
Those were definitely tears of joy from Julie.
But it just goes to show that human-sized lizards
-have feelings, too.
-I wonder if it's Doctor Who.
Here's my immediate issue with this, right?
Mum Julie is dressed as this Madame Vastra,
this Doctor Who, scaly, lizardy alien-themed...
And then, Mum Amanda has just got a waistcoat on, all right?
There is a disparity there in the costumes which, if I was Julie,
I'd felt like I'd been sent up the river.
-Are you happy to kiss me?
-And let's face it, guys,
who wouldn't want to get hitched to that kind of gorgeous green machine?
-Give us a kiss!
-I thought it was quite funny
to see that the kids were almost repulsed
by the look of their mum when she tried to give them a kiss,
when she had all the prosthetics on.
If that was my mum, she's still my mum,
I still love her, so...she can give me a kiss.
Did you see the state of Ed Petrie dressed as a Cyberman?
He looked like the Tin Man on a budget, didn't he?
And Naomi Wilkinson as a Weeping Angel.
Oh, she's an angel to me, cocker, that one.
It would've been good to see if one of them was a Dalek,
but obviously, probably, if there were any steps, sort of...
No, Daleks can hover now, so it's fine, actually.
-That would've been fine.
Do you know, I'm really scared of Daleks?
-Like, I've always been really scared.
-No, hey, stop it!
-Did that get you?
Everyone knows that the kiss on the wedding day is a big deal.
On this wedding day, it was a big deal for the wrong reasons.
I declare you are partners for life.
If I was Amanda, though, I'd be a bit like,
"Do you want to kiss the bride?" Mm, maybe later.
-Maybe another day.
-Maybe a high five.
-Maybe another day, yeah.
-Let's have a high five, how about that?
-Just with the priest.
-You may high-five the bride.
NAOMI: Well, if you think getting married as a lizard green alien
..our next wedding will absolutely take your breath away.
As a theme, Robin Hood reminds me of, you know,
the woods, and gold,
and so the kids sort of decided to initially fire
their parents out of a catapult.
Neither woods, or gold. Just pure... Just pain.
MUSIC WARPS AND STOPS
But for this modern-day slingshot,
they planned something that would have any bride and groom
reaching for the sick bags rather than feeling all loved up.
I don't know why Mum and Dad were getting so scared about all of that.
That looked so fun. I'd love to do it.
Yep, nothing says fun to me
quite like being shot into the air like human cannonballs.
I think letting your kids plan your wedding
may have well and truly backfired, Mum.
I think the boys will be doing it.
I don't... Surely it isn't... Surely it's not.
-"That'll be for the kids."
-"That'll be for the kids," yeah.
I was thinking, "Have you ever watched Marrying Mum And Dad?"
I think the bungee launch is for us.
Yes, the bungee looks horrifying.
But not as horrifying as Ed's facial hair.
What's going on there?
Ed Petrie was the Sheriff of Nottingham.
It was perfect for him because he's always trying to penny-pinch,
isn't he, old Ed?
He's a disgrace, that man.
He'd never make a proper sheriff. He hasn't got the legs for it.
-Look, Ed, they don't need to walk the walk.
They just need to take the plungee with the bungee.
Yep, there was no going back for this bride and groom.
-Good luck, guys.
-Thank you very much.
I would say good luck, but frankly, I couldn't care less.
Parents' philosophy is that the kid should always face their fears
but they definitely regretted it
when they were launched into the air at ridiculous speeds.
I think they immediately regretted
ever introducing the motto "face your fears" into the family.
There should be a new motto - get rid of "face your fears"
and just have, "Run, run away,
"run away from the things that scare you."
The timing of the reverse bungee jump was absolutely perfect.
You couldn't write that.
How do we know when...?
Like, during mid-sentence, which I think is absolutely brilliant.
It's the way you'd want to get them but probably couldn't plan for.
How do we know when...?
So when Mum and Dad said, "Let us know before it..."
And they got twanged off!
He vomited all over the place.
-What was that?
No, he didn't. There was no vomit involved at all.
I think the intention was to scare them and get their own back,
but then they ended up having a good time.
-What do you think of that, then?
-Well, that was brilliant.
I don't know how to describe it - it was scary, but fun.
What a lovely wedding day. And all your evil plans,
Sheriff of Nottingham, they were all scuppered.
Well, there's one thing that's gone exactly according to plan,
-Oh, yes? And what's that?
Trapping you inside my catapult devise.
HE LAUGHS EVILLY
Yeah, but you're in it, too.
Oh! Haven't thought this through.
That wedding day transport
definitely flung up some surprises for Mum and Dad.
But for our next outrageous wedding,
the plan was to take their parents literally out of this world.
This one is a great one
because Mum and Mum were expecting a farm-themed wedding.
Simple little farm theme, they thought.
That would have been nice and quaint, wouldn't it, cocker?
No - it was a UFO-themed wedding.
So there's Ed trying to make like
it's all going to be a farmer's wedding.
He's dressed as a cow.
So, can you guess the theme?
Weird udders - what's that all about?
And he starts making cow jokes.
Stop MILKING it, Ed!
Shall we get moo-ving?
At the start, Tor and Jackie
were beaming happiness over their fake theme.
But little did they know
the plan was to beam them onto an alien spaceship.
I think they liked the farm wedding.
I think they were really happy with what they got, do you not?
-I think they seemed almost surprised that it was so tame.
I think they seemed like, "Oh, it's just a farm wedding.
"I wasn't expecting that."
So I almost did sense a bit of disappointment.
Like, the mums almost wanted a bit of jeopardy,
like they wanted it to be a little bit more wacky.
Unbeknown to them,
their lovely tractor ride was about to be interrupted by
a close encounter with an actual extra-terrestrial tractor beam.
What do they see? A crashed UFO.
That's not the scariest thing, though.
Have you seen all the steam?
Someone's left the kettle to boil.
Is there anything in there?
Naomi in the UFO!
I'm still trying to figure out how her face was there in the window
and then her tentacle was just the complete other side of the UFO!
Naomi's found the role of a lifetime,
playing an alien that doesn't speak English.
She absolutely lives and breathes it.
I think she played it beautifully.
You know, she spoke in it,
she learned the language,
a complete alien language, she learnt off by heart.
She called the spaceship Mummy.
Slightly strange, but very believable!
I think Naomi's impression of an alien,
even though I've never met one myself,
I think it was pretty accurate.
And these daft tentacle arm things,
covered in suckers all the way down them.
All suckers and no trousers, that one.
I've always said it!
The special effects in this episode were low, low quality.
What's that in the sky?!
Who doesn't want to, like, hang out in a space ship? That's well fun.
And the second reveal of their costumes, it went to town.
So when they finally do the real reveal, it's just brilliant.
They're all dressed in their shiny, alieny space suits.
Look, I give that a nine out of TEN-tacle!
Mum and Mum's outfits were completely out of this world.
Yeah! Quite literally.
But if you think that outrageous moment had the parents in a spin,
you won't believe what's next - it's spook-tacular.
Welcome to one of the most haunted houses in Britain, Mum and Dad!
The kids prepared a haunted house theme wedding,
which contained a haunted house, obviously.
No lights. Complete darkness.
Absolutely horrible. And spiders.
The three things that make a real magical wedding.
If you can stomach it!
Just think about the emotions you want to feel at a wedding.
You want to feel love and friendship and family.
You don't want to feel scared.
These wedding planners had a ghastly task for dad Kerry,
before they could become "newly webs".
Involving eight legs and two fangs.
There's a little something you have to do.
You'll have to retrieve the rings...
..from the creepy cellar.
Just, like, worst nightmare, plus worst nightmare, put together,
which doesn't equal something very good.
Dad, how are you with spiders?
Not very good.
What is there to like about spiders?
Especially the big ones, and they're furry, and...
No, I don't even want to think about it!
I'm sorry you have to go down there alone, Dad,
but there's just no way around it.
It's what your children want.
I think they were slightly cruel for this one.
But personally just because I don't like spiders.
There was a spider in my room the other day and I haven't been...
I've moved house now. So...it was very cruel.
It's pretty dark down here.
I haven't got to put my hands in there, have I?
The real stars of the show were the spiders.
Troopers. They just carried on and there were hands...
There was a wedding ring in their house. They weren't even invited.
You're cruel, you guys, really, really cruel.
Do you know what, that I've heard
that you eat about eight spiders a year when you're sleeping.
They just come up to your mouth and start drinking from your spittle and
fall in, so you accidentally eat them, cocker.
Go on, Dad!
For such a scary challenge, Dad got away quite lightly.
-Because none of the spiders came... It was quite an easy one.
He just popped his hand in and got it out, which makes me think
perhaps even the spiders were scared of the dark.
Oh, yes, he's got it, he's got it, he's got it!
You know when you're scared of spiders and your parents say to you,
"They're more scared of you than you are of them," and you're like,
"What a load of rubbish, because I'm well scared."
I think those spiders were actually more scared of him because he was
-dressed as Dracula.
-Yeah, which he did look quite frightening.
I'm shaking here. The things you do for love.
"The things you do for love."
Like, that just sums up Marrying Mum And Dad.
-That's it. Yeah, that is it.
I don't know if it's worth it, though.
Don't know if love's quite worth spiders on your hand.
Can't believe I've just done that.
I was actually shaking there now as well.
No-one likes a haunted house, do they?
ALL GROAN AND GROWL
I mean, let's be honest, though,
the scariest thing about the whole wedding was Ed's acting, wasn't it?
-It was terrifying.
-You may regret that!
You know, it's Marrying Mum And Dad,
wedding themes aren't your normal wedding themes.
But if you think retrieving rings
from spider-infested tanks was outrageous,
then you're going to love this next one.
So what are we waiting for?
Come on! Make it snappy!
So, one of my favourite ones is where the kids decided to do an
Egyptian-themed wedding, which was brilliant,
because when you go to a wedding,
who doesn't want to have a PHARAOHED time?
If this newly crowned Pharaoh and his Queen of Sheba thought their
wedding day was going to be plain sailing,
they should SPHINX again!
You both have to retrieve your rings from the pool.
I think it was good that they used the actual wedding rings.
Like, you had to do it if you wanted to get married.
Dad, you'll be getting the one from up there and, Mum,
you'll be getting the one in the bottom.
So PHARAOH, so good!
But our sneaky wedding planners weren't done yet, as Mum, Emma,
and Dad, Vernon, weren't going to be in there alone.
Traditional wedding entertainment, like a magician, maybe a band, a DJ.
No, just crocodiles.
I admire the children for this, because ancient Egypt as a theme
doesn't necessarily immediately lend itself to you thinking,
"Oh, yeah, crocodile-infested pool."
It definitely was for our young wedding planners.
Before we can walk you down the aisle,
we've arranged for you a true test of bravery.
True test of bravery. Uh-oh!
Cue two Egyptian Gods to overplay their parts.
The Gods declare that this water is too pure.
Yes, the Gods say something is missing.
We demand a sacrifice!
Watch out, Mum and Dad!
The parents seemed fairly chilled at the beginning, like, "No, it's fine,
"there's nothing, nothing bad in this, just a pool of water."
There's something missing from this Nile!
And then the crocodiles came in.
So it started at this big.
"It's OK, it's only little."
And then it got bigger...
and then bigger.
Until there's, like, a huge one with about a million teeth.
Yeah. Wouldn't have been great.
When the little crocodile came in, everyone went,
"Oh, it's only a little baby crocodile.
"That's rubbish." Then some big 'uns went in and they were laughing.
Ha! It was dead funny, that!
The crocodiles were very underdressed.
I think, you know, it was good to see crocodiles finally at a wedding,
it's been a dream of mine, but just a little tie would be nice.
Nobody helped them, cocker, no!
No-one helped them. They just stood there and laughed.
Petrie was laughing.
Insert clip of Petrie laughing now.
See! Told ya!
Let the challenge begin!
-Find the ring.
-That game was definitely not fair.
Dad only had to reach up and grab it.
-He's done it!
-And Mum had to find the ring with her feet
and then pick it up with her hands, which was definitely scarier.
Got it. I've got it, I've got it, I've got it.
Mum, actually, you can see the fear,
she's like, "It's under me, I don't want to go down."
Watch out behind you, Mum.
Never tell anyone there's a massive crocodile behind them.
I think it's always just going to be a bad omen if you remind someone.
-I've held a crocodile like that.
A little one, like that - on a CBBC show, on Wild.
It was all going well, then it just started thrashing its body round
and they are so strong.
-Strong, aren't they?
You pathetic humans.
Somehow I didn't drop it. I don't know how.
I was like, "Take it off me."
They can hurt you with their tail as well.
That could have easily happened in the water.
Come on, Emma!
Come on, Mum! Yay!
It's the thought that would make you a bit more scared.
I'd have walked away from the wedding!
Luckily, no matter what the kids throw at them...
Lean back and hold on tight, OK?
..our parents never walk away...
..opting instead to walk...
..down the aisle...
..to finally say, "I do."
What's brilliant about Marrying Mum And Dad
is that in amongst all the silliness and the outrageousness
and the fact that the kids are basically
trying to embarrass their parents -
and good on them for that, by the way -
is that there's actually a real wedding in there
and it can actually get quite emotional, you know?
I've got to admit, I've shed a tear or two.
To be there for you when you need me most.
I always get a little bit emotional watching Marrying Mum And Dad
because I cry at weddings, like, I always cry at weddings.
You know what I'm like, I cry all the time at things.
I offer all of me to all of you.
-Dylan, you may kiss the bride.
Mum and Dad, Mum and Mum, Dad and Dad,
all actually do get married.
And that's the worst bit of the show.
All right, Hacker, that bit might be too sensible for you.
But don't worry, we still have loads
of jaw-dropping Marrying Mum And Dad moments, like these.
Cue our next wedding that had tongues and tails wagging.
And not necessarily for the right reasons.
I love this one because it's everything
that you'd want from a wedding.
It's dog agility.
I didn't know I wanted that for my wedding, but once I saw it,
I realised every wedding should have it from now on.
After Jane and Adam sniffed out their wedding guests,
they must have thought their kids were barking
with the plans for the entertainment.
I'm afraid I do not agree with agility courses for dogs.
I don't do them myself.
I don't do any exercise, cocker.
I think Naomi must have got the wrong invitation
or something, because I don't know why she would have come as
the dog's arch enemy
and dress up as a cat.
Welcome to Woofs.
Maybe next time just double-check.
"Dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs -
"I'm dressed as a cat!"
I cannot believe Naomi Wilkinson
dressed as a cat at a dog wedding.
Typical Naomi, that. Always wanting to be different.
HOWLING Stop it!
"Oh, look at me, I can dress as a cat
"and make a right show of myself
"with me dry old hair."
I'm sickened by her!
Well, I think I look pretty PURR-FECT,
unlike Mum and Dad,
whose attempts at the dog agility course were absolutely PAWFUL!
-Three, two, one, go!
I thought it was quite funny that even though the kids have been
raised by their adults their whole life, they're the ones who are
dominant and leading their parents around the obstacle course,
I thought that was quite funny.
I think the parents did really well doing the agility course, although,
yeah, Dad's costume was a bit big and he got a bit stuck.
I can't get through that one.
You need to cut down on the dog food, I think.
Got trapped in the tunnel.
Yes, there's more than one obstacle.
There's the tunnel and Dad's bottom.
I think he's still wearing that tube now.
-I think Mum and Dad definitely should have put a bit more
energy and vigour into some of their attempts.
The one where they had to dive through the rings,
I think they could have just dove straight, head through first.
The kids weren't done yet, though, as they had an ace up their sleeve
to show their parents how it should be done.
Three, two, one, go.
I think it was a good twist that they had to take on a real-life dog,
because it sort of, you know, gets you questioning, you know,
"Am I as good as a dog? Is a dog better than me?"
I think those are the type of questions
you should be asking yourself on your wedding day.
Yeah! I don't like humans telling dogs what to do, cocker.
No, dogs should tell humans what to do.
I tell humans what to do all the time.
Get me a milky brew, cocker, and don't mess about!
-I wanted to see that dog fail, personally.
I wanted to see the dog win because how funny would it to be for
a dog to beat two humans?
Like, usually, humans are better at most things than dogs,
but that's the dog's skill.
It's the dog's skill. It should have got round there.
ALL BARK AND HOWL
I thought that the dog would beat the parents,
but I think, on the day, he probably got a bit camera-shy,
got a bit scared.
I'm surprised Mum and Dad didn't, actually.
Ultimately, there was only one king of the canines.
Yes, the dad dog was the winner.
The mum dog came second
and the actual dog is a massive loser.
I'm surprised the dog didn't win,
considering they're supposed to be faster and more nimble.
But I think it would've been a bit of an insult if the parents hadn't
been able to beat him as well, to be honest.
I mean, Darwin was right, wasn't he?
It's all about natural selection - humans better than animals.
The Mum and Dad beat the dog, there you have it.
Ergo, we're the best.
Take that, evolution.
Dad might have won on points this time,
but in our next clip, our wedding planners were going for a knockout.
So, the prehistoric wedding,
the kids really wanted Dad to wrestle.
Even though that's not really necessarily a prehistoric thing.
They did that back in the day, though, didn't they?
But these wedding planners weren't going to let a little thing like
history stand in the way of their wedding day wickedness.
I thought it was a bit strange, because humans and dinosaurs
never actually coexisted, but then again,
when did cavemen ever do wrestling matches anyway
and get commentated on?
So, you know, whatever.
Forget all the historical inaccuracies, Nick -
you should be more concerned about this guy.
Come on! Who dares enter my cave?
He seemed really actually quite annoyed
when the wrestler guy came out.
Because he didn't look too happy, the wrestler guy.
He was ready to battle. I would've run a mile.
You're going to have to wrestle me first.
And if a wedding-crashing wrestler wasn't embarrassing enough,
the girls had one more outrageous surprise
for this cave-dwelling groom.
The girls got these for you.
The dad's reaction to the wrestling pants,
the daughter says, "I love you. I'm sorry."
I think at that moment, she realises that,
"For the next few years, I'm going to have to do all the washing up.
-"Maybe forever now."
-Wrestling pants, Ellie!
-I love it, but I'm so sorry.
It's embarrassing. That's the epitome of embarrassment,
-isn't it, really?
-Yeah, poor Dad.
Let's get it on!
They made Dad wrestle a caveman,
wearing a pair of wrestling pants and everyone thought
it was really embarrassing.
I'd give anything for a pair of pants right now.
That's cool, because this guy's a professional and the dad has been
wrestling for zero years and if you do the maths,
zero years of wrestling meets 20 years of wrestling,
equals not a very happy day for anyone.
I thought Aaron really got into the whole spirit of it.
Gave it a go and really...
I think he probably picked up some tips
from the TV when he'd been watching it.
Really went for him.
Halfway through, he's not doing so well.
Oh, no! It looks like Aaron's CAVED in.
And then his wig falls off!
I mean, how many problems can a man have?
He's even knocked his wig off!
Come on! Get up!
Essentially, we've got two baldies fighting it out
at a dinosaur-themed wedding! Brilliant!
I was screaming. I couldn't believe it.
I was shouting at my TV.
Now, that's outrageous.
Aaron's really turned things around here!
One, two, three...
I was very surprised that Dad won.
Unbelievable comeback from Aaron, there!
I can only think that the guy was, like, "Oh, it is his wedding.
"It is his wedding. I'm going to let him have it!"
Or he's a terrible, terrible wrestler.
Doing wrestling on your wedding day,
it can only be Marrying Mum And Dad, really.
Dad Aaron did brilliantly not to CAVE in
when faced with that wrestling.
Yeah, that was some blockbusting entertainment.
But now it's time for our final outrageous wedding moment,
and for this...
..one dad, Pete, had a right earful - literally!
Do you know what? Of all the Marrying Mum And Dad weddings,
I looked at the Georgian one and was like,
"I would quite like to dress like that in a wedding."
The actual dressing up with the dresses
and the Georgian era, that's really cool.
It's just the dinner aspect, really, isn't it?
It kind of goes downhill.
But what could possibly be on the menu
that would make Dad's Georgian guts grumble?
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present your dinner?
We have pheasant casserole.
And poached hake.
If this gruesome grub wasn't bad enough, Dad, the greedy pig,
also had something from the specials' board.
We made a right pig's ear of this one,
because it's literally a pig's ear!
Come on, Dad, you swine!
I hear this porky tastes terrific!
You have to try everything!
I mean, he's given pig's ear on a plate.
And what's worse than that?
I'll tell you what's worse -
when the side garnish is a bit of tinfoil.
Just take a look.
Tuck in there. Enjoy yourself.
Yeah, I think Dad was quite a good sport, really.
"OK, I'm going to do it."
Hang on, this one's still wearing an earring.
YOLO, don't hold back. Just try a bit.
He didn't seem that impressed, though, when he got it in his mouth.
There we go, girls. Here's the pig's ear. Mm!
Dad gave it a really good effort at eating all the food, the challenge.
But the manners, sort of... Very different to a typical wedding.
I've only been to one wedding,
but no-one ever, sort of, spat a little bit of pig ear out.
Would you have given that a go?
-I would have definitely given that a go!
I don't think I'd even want to taste it.
Oh, I think it would be like all chewy and bony and just... No.
The one thing I cannot eat is mashed potato,
so I would rather pig ear than mashed potato.
I would cancel the happiest day of my life for a pig's ear -
not for a pig's ear, because of a pig's ear.
But it looked lovely, me old cocker!
-Is it nice?
It was nice and gelatinous and thick.
And it would dribble down your gullet
and right into your little old belly.
And the beauty of a pig's ear is you can use it as a spoon
and then nibble on it at the end.
I wonder if Dad, like, got home and just ordered a takeaway?
Yeah, probably ordered pig's ear and rice!
I actually learnt quite a lot watching this,
that when they showed all the sort of delicious Georgian food
that they had to eat, I learnt that I'm very glad that
I wasn't born in that period of time.
There's lots of weird and wonderful things eaten at weddings.
I've seen a lot of people eat their own words,
but this has surely got to take the biscuit for the most outrageous
thing ever eaten on a wedding day.
So, that brings us to the end of our look back at some of the most
outrageous clips ever seen on Marrying Mum And Dad.
From jaw-dropping outfits...
..to body-slamming entertainment...
..you guys haven't failed to make it a wedding day you'll never forget.
So, see you again soon
for some more Marrying Mum And Dad Outrageous Moments.
