Home and Away spoilers: Leah has a horrible time with bratty Ava!

Home and Away, Leah Patterson, Ava Gilbert

Despite Leah's best efforts, meeting Justin's daughter Ava is a disaster when she makes it clear she'd rather Leah wasn't around. Rude!

The last time Justin Morgan (played by James Stewart) invited his young daughter Ava Gilbert (now played by Alice Roberts) to stay and meet his then girlfriend Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) on Home and Away (opens in new tab), Ava got kidnapped by criminals with a grudge against Willow!

So Justin is hoping things will be more plain sailing when Ava comes to visit so he can introduce her to the current lady in his life, Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou).

However, things don't get off to a very good start when Ava wants to do anything BUT spend time with Leah!

Justin eventually manages to get the three of them together for lunch at the Morgan house. However, Leah catches Ava feeding her delicious plate of lunch to the family dog, Buddy. And when Leah challenges Ava about her bratty behaviour, the ten-year-old makes it clear that none of her dad's girlfriends last that long... and Leah's not going to be any different!

Elsewhere, Tori Morgan (Penny McNamee) is still reeling from Robbo (Jake Ryan) shutting down her idea for their unborn baby daughter to have his surname, Shaw.

Robbo opens up to Tori and admits the people who killed his wife, Lauren and children, Lucas and Sofia in a home invasion are still out there. So he doesn't want to endanger their baby by using his surname.

Understanding and supportive, Tori has a SURPRISE offer for Robbo and his fiancee Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost). Why don't the couple move into the now unused garden cottage on the Morgan family property, so Robbo can be close when the baby is born?

But will Jasmine agree to the move?

Meanwhile, Mason Morgan (Orpheus Pledger) is still feeling taken for granted down at the gym and drops the surprise news he has been offered a medical internship at a hospital... but it will mean leaving Summer Bay!

First it was brother Brody. Will Mason be the next member of the Morgan family to hit the road?

Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
