Home and Away spoilers: Family fallout for Justin and Ava over Leah!

Home and Away, Ava Gilbert

After the disastrous first meeting between Leah and Justin's daughter Ava, can disappointed Justin convince Ava to give Leah a chance?

Justin  Morgan (played by James Stewart) hoped it was going to be plain sailing when he introduced his young daughter Ava Gilbert (Alice Roberts) to his ladyfriend Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) on Home and Away (opens in new tab).

Unfortunately, he couldn't have been more wrong!

After the disastrous garden lunch at the Morgan house, Justin remains unaware bratty Ava has just given Leah the brush-off, claiming there's no point getting to know any of her dad's girlfriends because none of them stick around that long!

While Justin spends some quality dad/daughter time with Ava down at the beach, Leah shares her frustrations with friends Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) and Maggie Astoni (Kestie Morassi). Can the ladies boost Leah's spirits and offer her some suggestions to get Ava on side?
