What happened at the end of Ackley Bridge?

The final episode of Ackley Bridge started with Kayla (played by Robyn Cara) coming to terms with the fact her love interest was marrying someone else. 

Newcomer Johnny (Ryan Dean), who is part of the Romany Gypsy community, had chosen to propose to his childhood friend, Rose (Olivia Marie Fearn)

His big day had finally arrived and the school helped him celebrate his special day with a themed party. 

Fizza (Yasmin Al-Khudhairi) approached her best friend Kayla in an attempt to reconcile their relationship, following the love triangle with Johnny. 

They apologised to each other before sharing an embrace and fans were delighted to see the pair unite once more. 

Kayla’s next challenge was to clear the air with Johnny, and she was given the opportunity in a science class. 

She had been paired with her former lover for a task, and she used the time to try and reconnect with him. 

Whilst she clearly still had feelings for him, she insisted their romance was just water under the bridge. 

Johnny, having felt awful for how he had hurt her, apologised and thanked Kayla for understanding. 

Fans were left feeling emotional as it seemed as if the pair were going to part ways for good. 

That was until Johnny had a conversation with an old friend about his future, and what he really wanted. 

There were hints that he was starting to regret his decision to marry Rose, and he had only agreed to it to please his grandad. 

He had a vision of his grandad (Connor McIntyre) during his pre-wedding party and he was definitely holding on to old memories. 

But what really mattered was his future, and he did not want to spend the rest of his life with the wrong person just to please others. 

When the time finally arrived, guests from Ackley Bridge, including Fizza and Kayla, attended the church wedding. 

This is when things really took a turn, as one of Rose’s old flames, Liam, stood up to declare why she should not marry Johnny. 

He said it was because she loved him, and Johnny admitted he did not feel the same way about Rose. 

In a heartfelt speech, he finally admitted in front of his wedding party that he loved Kayla. 

Just when fans thought a fight would ensue, Kayla, Fizza and Johnny fled from the church. 

Fizza gave Kayla and Johnny her blessing before watching them escape on a bus. 


Fans were pleased to see there was a “happily ever after” moment for at least some of the characters. 

There was also an emotional moment between Kaneez Paracha (Sunetra Sarker) and her nephew Tahir (Shobhit Piasa). 

He had finally come to terms with what happened to his mother and he was able to say goodbye to her at last. 

At this moment in time, there is no news on where there will be a season five of the series. 

Ackley Bridge is available to watch on ALL4.
