Leanna tries to kiss Jacob in Emmerdale

A village Halloween party sets the scene for Emmerdale teenagers Jacob Gallagher and Leanna Cavanagh who end up sharing a kiss…

Emmerdale's Jacob Gallagher has a kiss with Leanna Cavanagh as they get ready for the village's Halloween party in Thursday's episode at 8pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

Teenager Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) has been scarred by his first taste of 'love'.

Groomed by his dad David's former live-in girlfriend, Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein), who was also his teacher, inexperienced Jacob confused the situation and felt it was a real-life romance.

Predator Maya was put behind bars for her crime, but whether Jacob is over her remains to be seen. After his parents Leyla and David probed and probed, he stopped communicating about Maya altogether.
