Home and Away: Leah and Justin's relationship is put to the test by intrusive houseguests

The couple turn on each other!

By Tamara Cullen
Young love can be exciting, scary… and intrusive – at least for couple Justin and Leah, who find their home overrun by lustful teenagers this week.
But in their fight to get back their space, Leah and Justin turn on each other!
In recent episodes of Home And Away, Theo (Matt Evans) and Chloe (Sam Barrett) decided to give their relationship a try. It's a win for Theo, whose life was recently upended when his abusive father returned to Summer Bay.
Now, he's finally happy.

"In his mind, Chloe is the most beautiful, intelligent girl, and he's had his eye on her from the very beginning," Matt, 25, tells TV WEEK.
But the young lovebirds never seem to leave the house, much to the annoyance of his aunt, Leah (Ada Nicodemou), and partner Justin (James Stewart).
Feeling like intruders in their own home, the couple take the opportunity to set boundaries over lunch – where Justin blames it all on Leah, implying that she doesn't want Chloe to come over anymore.

That night, Justin is given boundaries of his own when Leah bans him to the couch for throwing her under the bus at lunch. Justin rails at her "overreaction" and opts to stay at John's (Shane Withington) that night.
The following morning, Leah tries to mend fences, but Justin digs in his heels. Now, he wants her to apologise!
Meanwhile, at the Parata household, the shoe is on the other foot as Theo tries to impress Chloe's family.
But his nervous energy takes over and he stumbles headfirst into the pool! However, his tumble serves as the ultimate ice-breaker and he quickly settles in. Chloe smiles widely, a sign of her adoration.
"Since they reconnected, Chloe and Theo have formed a really nice connection," Sam, 21, says.
Now, they just need to find a way to help Justin and Leah…
The next day, Chloe and Theo hatch a plan to fix Leah and Justin's relationship, but neither go for it – in fact, they don't even want to be in the same room!
As one Summer Bay couple finds their feet, will another crumble?
