Jake Windass (formerly Joe McIntyre) is the son of Gary Windass and Izzy Armstrong. He was carried by surrogate mother Tina McIntyre, who delivered him eight weeks early after going into labour prematurely. Soon afterwards, Jake developed an infection in his intestine but recovered after surgery. Tina became attached to the child and wanted to keep him, renaming him Joe McIntyre after her late father, but eventually agreed to hand him over to Gary and Izzy who changed his name back to Jake.
- Jake was born onscreen in May 2013 but was not played by an actor until a few weeks later due to his premature birth. He was played by Harley & Layton Phoenix from June 2013 to October 2015, with the role being taken over by Seth & Theo Wild in February 2016.
