Channel 4's Bride and Prejudice returned for its third episode tonight (June 19), following the same three couples from last week as they struggled to get their parents to come to terms with their situations.

The pressure really started to get to Jamie and Shaaba this week, as he tried to get his other half's mother Fai to accept him being transgender. While she couldn't get past that fact, she tried to be involved with their engagement party by offering to make them a cake.

Jamie initially refused this, telling Shaaba that he didn't want to say yes just to make it seem like he was okay with the whole situation, which drove a wedge between the couple.

Viewers were similarly divided on whether he made the right call:















After a chat with his mum, Jamie decides that the engagement party should be a celebration of the relationship, and they can focus on getting Fai to accept him being transgender down the line.

Meanwhile, Chloe is still trying to get her mum Debra to accept her relationship with Jack, although both mother and groom-to-be aren't keen on each other.

Although last week viewers though Debra was the one who needed to let go, this week the consensus was that Jack isn't acting much better:













Tonight's episode also featured the wedding of Robert and Simon, which Rob's notoriously disapproving parents did attend – and the mums of both grooms even walked their sons down the aisle.

That didn't mean Rob's parents were completely happy, though. They did say that they were proud of their son, but added that they were glad the two newlyweds didn't snog because it would have been "gruesome":













Next week on Bride and Prejudice: Jack confronts Debra, the engagement party goes ahead, and we meet a brand new couple. That's on next Tuesday at 9pm (June 26) on Channel 4.
