Emmerdale fans feared two birthdays had been completely forgotten in the madness of the Dingle wedding.
Jessie had planned a surprise wedding for her and Marlon Dingle, which he had no idea about until he turned up and was told to get on a suit and head over to the barn for a big event.
But in the midst of all the planning, dressing up and celebrating, two characters looked as though they may have been forgotten.
Belle Dingle and Gabby Blackstock.

Lisa Dingle, Belle’s mum, had no idea she was pregnant until she went into labour, so she was taken into a barn by the village vet, Paddy Kirk.
In the end, the birth was harmless to mum and daughter, and Lisa gave birth to her and Zak’s baby girl in the barn on Christmas Day.
And Gabby, the daughter of Bernice Blackstock and Ashley Thomas, was born on Christmas Day three days later, with her paternity in doubt as Bernice had been having it away with Carlos, a chef who was a possible father to Gabby.
But fans were pretty shocked when none of these birthdays were acknowledged, despite these storylines being big moments in Christmas Days past.

One fan asked: "Belle birthday wasn’t mentioned only gabby’s don’t remember them having same birthday"
Another said: "So did #emmerdale forget that today was Belle’s birthday or?
A third asked: "Wasn’t Gabby’s Birthday a few days ago when she had the big party? Also NOT really much of a Birthday for Belle either was it? #Emmerdale
Another viewer asked: "Happy Birthday Belle Dingle I think @emmerdale may have forgotten lol"
Belle was busy sorting out Jessie’s wedding
On the Christmas Eve episode, however, fans celebrated Belle’s return, but were not impressed that her parents had left her for Christmas rather than spending more time with her.
A fan joked: "Poor Belle getting binned off on her birthday by her parents #emmerdale"
Luckily, their birthdays were remembered in the end, when April Dingle gave Belle a present to celebrate, and Gabby’s birthday was acknolwedged by her mum after he was given a new phone to celebrate.
Emmerdale continues on Boxing Day at 7pm on ITV.
