WILL they or won't they?

As the drama on soapie Home and Away ramps up ahead of its final week for 2012, viewers are wondering if Roo and Harvey will actually go through with their wedding.

Home and Away - Seven - Monday through Wednesday at 7pm

The lovebirds are set to tie the knot, but with clashing personalities among friends and family and Harvey's wild bucks' night, there are plenty of opportunities for second thoughts.

Sea Patrol and Underbelly: Razor star John Batchelor has provided some comic relief, for viewers anyway, as Harvey's close mate and best man Winston Markman.

"There's one scene where he's in a big fat sumo suit and attacks me," laughed Marcus Graham, who plays Harvey.

Harvey and Roo's romance has certainly been a rocky one.

"For about 10 weeks in run-up to the storyline to it, it has been so bizarre at every turn," he said.

"To finally get to the wedding....it's really fun."

He said Georgie Parker looks stunning in her cream wedding gown and jokes about how the on-screen wedding might eventually serve as his "dry run".

"I'm not married so when we were doing the vows I was getting quite emotional," he said.

"Georgie goes 'I knew you were going to get emotional today'.

"You want to sort of fool yourself into thinking that you're really getting married on the day so that when you do it part of you is really doing it. That's what acting is really."

Harvey and Roo's big day will take place on Tuesday night's show.

The wedding also sees the return of Summer Bay royalty: original Home and Away cast member Fiona Spence, Lyn Collingwood and Cornelia Frances, who play Alf's sisters Celia, Colleen and Morag.

Last time viewers saw Celia, she had a frosty relationship with her niece Roo.

Then on Wednesday's extended series final, Casey has to choose between Sasha and Tamara and someone will be left for dead.
