Jason is the toyboy lover of Elaine Peacock. The character was confirmed on 3 September 2015 when executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins teased an upcoming storyline, saying "We've got some rare fun for the Carters as Maria Friedman returns for a three-month stint with Scott Neal in tow as her toy boy lover. All of which will add a little bit of fun for Mick Carter and Linda Carter in the pub." A show insider said "The Carters are shocked when Elaine returns home from holiday with Jase. He's certainly put a smile on her face, but is he all that he seems?"
Jason arrives with Elaine at The Queen Victoria pub, surprising her daughter Linda and her family, when Elaine announces that she and Jason are engaged. Mick's great-aunt, Babe Smith, and Linda initially are cautious about trusting Jason. Linda's distrust of him grows when she catches Babe having a passionate encounter with Jason in the kitchen. Linda asks Babe to get Jason to leave or she will tell Elaine. When Elaine jokes about Jason having a crush on Babe, Babe snaps and tells her the truth, but Elaine does not believe this and accuses her of being jealous. When Babe tells Jason that Linda wants him to leave, he says he really likes her. Realising Babe has money, he says he wants to move away with her, but when she says it will take time to get the money, he suggests that they steal from the pub. Babe secretly records this and plays the recording in front of him, Elaine and everyone in the pub. Elaine then slaps Babe and Mick orders Jason to leave. After Babe explains herself to Elaine and Linda, Jason arrives for his belongings, leaving the three women shocked as to how remorseless he is for hurting the family, so Linda throws him out and sends his belongings to charity.
