David’s son Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant)  has been experiencing all sorts of mood swings thanks to his crush on teacher Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein). He confides in his mate Ellis Grant (Asan N’Jie) about the problems he is having with a ‘girl’ but Ellis is worried to learn the person Jacob has a big crush on is much older.

Ellis feels he should mention something to Jacob’s dad David (Matthew Wolfenden) but when Maya finds out what’s happened she panics and angrily confronts Jacob for confiding in Ellis.
