Home and Away's Leah takes drastic action in Justin and Ava storyline

Home and Away spoilers for Australian-pace episodes.

In scenes set to air Down Under this week, there are more tensions between Justin and Leah, following the revelation that Ava is secretly Theo's stalker.

Theo opts to live with girlfriend Kirby, which causes Ava to lash out even further.

Ava actress Annabel Wolfe has revealed what to expect in a chat with Australia's TV Week magazine, stating: ''As soon as her dad found out [about her obsession with Theo], the stakes are raised dramatically.

''Ava struggles with issues of abandonment, trust and what it means to love or be loved. Her initial distance and defensiveness come from exactly this place – at the core of everything, she simply wants to be loved by her dad.''

And it seems she's going to get what she wants, as Justin tries some father-daughter bonding time.

The problem is that Leah thinks Ava is putting on an act, and is getting increasingly frustrated that Justin, who feels guilty about spending so much time apart from her, can't see it.

However, she finds a way to press her point when Roo gives her some "sultry" photos of Ava wearing Theo's shirts.

Leah issues Justin with an ultimatum – until he sorts Ava out, she won't be living with him.
