After making their way to the land of the brave, the Simpsons quickly realise they’ve been tricked into attending Groundskeeper Willie’s wedding to Maisie.

In true fashion, the trip is not without it’s challenges with Homer and Marge enduring a series of arguments throughout their Edinburgh trip.

However, the long-time loves manage to rekindle their romance at ‘The St Andrews Golf Club’.

The episode is the eighth instalment of season 35 of The Simpsons and will be available for UK viewers next year.
