After yet another angry bust-up with husband Ben on Home and Away, Maggie Astoni warns her husband to seek help because she is done...
Maggie Astoni (played by Kestie Morassi) wants nothing more than for her husband Ben to return to the family farmhouse on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).
And things are certainly looking up now that an arrest has been made over the drug smuggling allegations that led to the closure of Ben’s surf board business.
However, Ben is still worried as the police charges against him haven’t officially been dropped. And with no surf lessons booked with the beach business he is now running with Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor), things are looking bleak on that front too.
Determined to help Ben out of his depression, his friends and family secretly come-up with a way to boost his spirits.
However, their plan backfires when Ben finds out and angrily storms off!
But fed up with Ben continually pushing everyone away, Maggie angrily gives him an ultimatum to seek help and speak to a counsellor because she has had enough! Will Maggie’s words sink in and encourage Ben to tackle his depression?
Elsewhere, Dean is stunned when his sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) reveals she is starting to have doubts about her relationship with policeman Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin).
Colby has been working a lot of overtime lately and Mackenzie is constantly worried something terrible is going to happen to him in the line of duty.
Will Dean convince Mackenzie to stick with Colby? Or could this couple be doomed?
Meanwhile, Leah Patterson’s (Ada Nicodemou) hopes of a romantic getaway with boyfriend Justin Morgan (James Stewart) are dashed when Justin drops some surprise news.
His ex, Nina is currently struggling with her divorce proceedings and has asked Justin to look after their daughter Ava until further notice!
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
