Will it be a case of 'til DEATH do us part on their wedding day for Mia Anderson (played by Anna Samson) and Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) on Home and Away? (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings)

Mia was planning to marry fiance, Ari, in prison after he falsely confessed to the murder of Matthew Montgomery.

But the couple's world has been turned upside down, now that Ari has been diagnosed with a form of cancer that has already spread through his body.

Ari has decided against complex surgery, which might slightly prolong his life.

So now, Mia and Ari have decided to make the most of their remaining time together.

A vulnerable Ari has told Mia that his biggest regret is not marrying her a long time ago.

So, an EMERGENCY plan is put into action, as Mia prepares to marry Ari... at Northern District Hospital!

Ari is completely taken by surprise, as his beautiful bride walks down the hospital corridor accompanied by her daughter, Chloe (Sam Barrett).

The whole Parata family get dressed-up for the occasion, to watch Ari and Mia declare their love for each other.

But no sooner have their wedding vows been exchanged, Ari collapses in terrible pain...

As doctor Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) arrives on the scene, the family is horrified to realise it's time to prepare for the worst...
