We have it with Noah, Samson, Amelia and Cathy in Emmerdale and now it’s spread to Walford – teenage crushes in soapland right now must be an epidemic.
Zack Hudson (James Farrar) tells Jada Lennox (Kelsey Calladine-Smith) that a party for tomorrow has been canceled because Sharon is away with Albie.
Nevertheless, when Will Mitchell (Freddie Phillips) enters the salon, Jada realizes her friends are sending around a massive invitation despite her cancellation of the party.
In an attempt to clear the house tomorrow, Jada asks Zack and Martin Fowler (James Bye) to give her some space tomorrow, to her relief, they agree.
Zack is suspicious about Jada’s plans as they prepare for their night out; when they leave, Jada’s friends, including Will, arrive ready to party. However, the girls wonder why no one else has turned up.
When Sonia checks in, she takes Will home and Zack is disappointed in Jada for wanting to keep it a secret from Sharon. But before Sharon arrives, Zack gives Jada an ultimatum: Tell Sharon or he will. In the market, Will tries to convince Martin not to tell Sharon about Jada’s party.
Later, Martin teases Jada about her meeting with Will being a date, but she dismisses him. And in the park, Will has brought snacks and flowers for Jada, along with the message that he really likes her. An embarrassed Jada walks away from Will humiliated.
