Things get heated at the Astoni house on Home and Away when Maggie and Ziggy confront layabout Ben about his behaviour...
Since his surf board business Ben’s Boards shutdown over drug smuggling allegations, Ben Astoni (played by Rohan Nichol) has been struggling to motivate himself on Home and Away.
Ben’s wife Maggie (Kestie Morassi) and his daughter Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) think he just needs a gentle push to get back in the land of the living.
But faced with legal fees for his upcoming court case, Ben slips further into his funk and remains convinced he could be going to prison unless the real drug smuggling crooks are caught.
With stressed-out Maggie running out of ideas to motivate Ben, Ziggy tries to help by suggesting they both confront Ben and tell him to get off the sofa and get his act together.
But both women are in for a SHOCK when Ben has an angry outburst and storms off…
Elsewhere in Summer Bay, Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) realises he has messed-up for meddling in the relationship between his best buddy Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) and Dean’s sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir).
Mackenzie remains furious with Dean after discovering he dropped an ultimatum on Colby which caused him to end things with Mackenzie.
Will Colby and Mackenzie make a stand and stop letting Dean interfere in their personal business and get their romance back on track?
Meanwhile, it’s exam fever at Summer Bay High School. But Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) is concerned when his ex-girlfriend Raffy Morrison (Olivia Deeble) fails to show for their next exam.
Despite their messy break-up, will Ryder try and find out what’s wrong with Raffy and offer his support?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
