Monday 2nd: Hazel and Aaron are pleased when Jackson agrees to go on holiday to Whitby with them.
Tuesday 3rd: Aaron and Hazel work hard to ensure Jackson enjoys his holiday in Whitby, but are dismayed by Jackson’s lack of enthusiasm when they arrive at the holiday apartment.
Aaron makes Jackson laugh by pretending to propose to him.
Thursday 5th (7pm): Determined to ensure Jackson has the best time possible, Hazel convinces a fisherman to take her, Aaron and Jackson out to sea on a fishing trip.
Thursday 5th (8pm): After the fishing trip, Hazel insists that Aaron tell her what he’s been secretly organising. Aaron is reluctant but finally admits that he’s booked a tandem jump out of a plane for Jackson, something he has wanted to do all his life. However, Hazel doesn’t share Aaron’s excitement and replies that there is no way on God’s earth she is letting him fall from a plane.
Friday 6th: Arriving at the air field, Aaron finally admits to Jackson that he has planned a skydive and Jackson is thrilled. Questioning if he’ll be doing it with him, Aaron hides his anxiety and assures him that he’ll be with him all the way. As the instructors explain everything to the boys, Jackson becomes aware that Aaron is petrified and Hazel is relieved to hear him say he can’t put him through it anymore.
However, Hazel’s relief is short-lived when Jackson claims he’s still up for it. Up in the plane, Jackson is suddenly struck with nerves but when the instructor tells him they can go back down, he refuses. On the ground, Hazel and Aaron watch on as the parachute opens and Jackson is clearly loving it. Aaron and Hazel are made up to hear how much Jackson enjoyed himself and the banter starts as he takes every opportunity to remind Aaron that he chickened out.
These scenes air during the week beginning Monday 2nd May 2011.
