Fuss at a party (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ado

'fuss' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'at a party' is the wordplay.
'at' says to put letters next to each other.
'party' becomes 'do' (do is a kind of party).
'a' put next to 'do' is 'ADO'.

(Other definitions for ado that I've seen before include "flapping" , "Fuss, trouble" , "Goings-on" , "Song and dance" , "hoo-hah" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
