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.

    May's plan to give Stormont a backstop veto enrages EU envoys

    Stormont has not sat for 20 months due to the refusal of the DUP and Sinn Féin to work together. EU diplomats have accused Theresa May of trying to delay resolution of the Irish border problem until after Brexit day by insisting upon Stormont having a final veto before any “backstop” solution can come into force. Senior diplomats involved in the negotiations have reacted furiously to the details of a fresh UK proposal for avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland, briefed to the Irish PM, Leo Varadkar, at last week’s Salzburg summit.

    'It's a nightmare scenario': A radioactive object was found in San Francisco's new $8 billion neighborhood

    Health experts are questioning the safety of the San Francisco Shipyard after workers discovered a radioactive deck marker less than a foot below the area's $8 billion neighborhood. Contact with the deck marker could produce 30,000 millirems of radiation per year — more than six times the legal limit for nuclear power plant workers. In an email to a lawyer, San Francisco's health officer said an "independent health physicist" would investigate the issue.

    Mako Vunipola hails Saracens’ flair for flexibility

    Saracens’ England stars hot-footed it down to Bristol on Sunday night to join the national team's training camp after helping their side continue their perfect start. The club claimed their fourth straight bonus-point victory as they saw off Gloucester 38-15 at Allianz Park in what was by far their most commanding performance of the season so far. Of their England contingent — some of whom were playing in unfamiliar positions — Mako Vunipola’s 17 tackles won him the man-of-the-match award and Maro Itoje, playing at blindside, scored two tries and made 15 tackles.

    Syrian jihadists to state position on Idlib deal 'in coming days'

    The main jihadist group in northwest Syria will announce its position on a Turkish-Russian deal over Idlib in the next few days, it said on Monday, with its acceptance or rejection vital to the success of efforts to contain the war. Tahrir al-Sham's stance will be critical to last week's deal which has, for now, averted a full-scale Syrian government offensive in Idlib, which along with adjacent areas of the northwest is the rebels' last major foothold. The agreement requires "radical" insurgents including Tahrir al-Sham to withdraw from a demilitarized zone along the frontlines by October 15.

    Turkey orders 61 soldiers detained for suspected Gulen links - media

    Turkish authorities ordered the arrest of 61 soldiers from the navy and land forces, including senior officers, for suspected links to a U.S.-based cleric who Ankara says orchestrated a 2016 failed coup, state media said on Monday. Eighteen of those ordered detained were on active duty, Anadolu news agency said, adding the suspects included 13 majors and 12 captains from the land forces and 24 first lieutenants from the navy. Authorities have carried out regular sweeps against alleged members of cleric Fethullah Gulen's network since the coup attempt of July 2016, in which 250 people were killed.

Francis is visiting Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, three countries who are looking warily towards what they fear is a newly hostile Russia. "You know all too well the price of that freedom, which you have had to win over and over again," Francis said in a speech to President Raimonds Vejonis and the diplomatic corps shortly after his arrival in the Latvian capital.

A compensation scheme for Northern rail passengers affected by this summer’s timetable chaos has been extended to include regular travellers who do not hold season tickets. The initiative, agreed between Transport for the North and the train operator Northern, allows passengers who faced mass cancellations and delays in May and June to claim for additional payouts beyond the standard claims scheme for individual journeys.

    Cosby sentencing caps fall from 'America's Dad' to convicted felon

    Bill Cosby's downfall from "America's Dad" to convicted felon will reach its final chapter in a Pennsylvania courtroom on Monday, when a judge will begin deciding whether to sentence the 80-year-old comedian to prison for sexual assault. Cosby, who was found guilty in April, is the first celebrity to be convicted since the start of the #MeToo movement, the national reckoning with sexual misconduct that has brought down dozens of powerful men in entertainment, politics and other industries. The once beloved star of the 1980s television comedy "The Cosby Show" has seen his family-friendly reputation destroyed by allegations of sexual abuse from more than 50 women going back decades.
