However, James is in the mood for more celebrating and embarks on a chain of recklessness.

He decides to spend the night taking risks and bumps into a mystery man called Rafael. 

Rafael immediately takes a shine to James.

However, it seems that Rafael could have ulterior motives in making a move on James.

Elsewhere, worried mum, Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe), asks her son Bobby Costello (Jayden Fox) who he has been so busy messaging. 

Bobby is very defensive which immediately makes Mercedes very suspicious. 

Bobby is forced to think quickly on his feet but will his excuses backfire and land him in even bigger trouble?

Plus, Leah Barnes (Ela May Demircan) talks to pregnant teen Ella Richardson (Erin Palmer).

Ella has been upset this week when her boyfriend Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan) hasn’t been as supportive as she’d wanted him to be. 

The two teenagers were at loggerheads over the date of Ella’s baby scan which led to an argument. 

Ella was later comforted by Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin) who provided a sympathetic ear to the teen.
