    "I have to leave": Home And Away's Ben grapples with forgiveness as Maggie prepares to fly out
    Is this the end of Ben and Maggie’s marriage?


    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...eaves-ben-6433

    It certainly looks like it in Home And Away this week when Maggie packs her bags and prepares to leave for Italy.

    The international move isn't an easy decision for school principal Maggie (Kestie Morassi), who has repeatedly tried to keep her relationship alive.

    But Ben (Rohan Nichol) is too angry to think straight, and can't forgive Maggie for sleeping with his brother Marco (Tim Walter) many years before and keeping it a secret.

    Will his pride ruin everything?

    At the farmhouse, Maggie searches for her passport, while her daughter Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) implores her father to give the marriage another chance. He could lose her for good!

    ''Maggie can't take back what has happened or what has been said,'' Sophie, 26, tells TV WEEK. ''And for the first time, Ziggy has to imagine life without her family together.''

    And when Alf (Ray Meagher) hearing that Maggie is leaving, he too suggests it's time Ben forgive.

    Later that night, Ben asks Maggie to reconsider her decision – if not for him, but for Ziggy. Maggie, however, finds it too painful to live in the same town as her ex, who she believes has moved on with Gemma (Bree Peters).

    She then tells Ben that she will be on the first flight out in the morning.

    As dawn arrives, Ziggy wakes to the sound of her boyfriend Dean (Patrick O'Connor) packing the car. He's planned a romantic road trip to take her mind off all that's going on at home.

    Ziggy is delighted and the two take off on a bushwalking adventure. Yet in the bush, she can't seem to focus on anything but her family's troubles.

    And when Dean gives a gift to celebrate a year together, Ziggy realises she's forgotten their anniversary!

    Dean brushes it off, but the hurt is written all over his face. It's another blow to their suffering relationship…

    ''They're in this together, but Dean has had a stable family and finds it hard to relate,'' Sophie explains. "Then Ziggy can't focus, so they do feel a strain."

    Back in Summer Bay, Maggie hits the road for the airport. Ben remains silent as she drives away, which affirms her decision to leave.

    But as he mulls over his anger, the pain he's feeling is suddenly replaced by fear – he has to fight for his wife!

    But Maggie has already left.

    Can he reach her in time?

    Although it hasn't been officially confirmed, it is pretty certain they are leaving (& soon at Aust pace). Apparently in December they were filmed together driving past the 'You are leaving Summer Bay' sign, which was witnessed by some people on the H&A Tour, & they haven't been seen filming since (even before the Covid lockdown). And I think there were also pictures of filming what seemed like a farewell party for them...?

    Home and Away reveals Ben and Maggie Astoni's fate after marriage crisis
    Ziggy hears what the future holds.


    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...e-astoni-fate/

    Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian-pace episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.

    Home and Away has aired a surprise reunion for Ben and Maggie Astoni.

    The couple decided to give their marriage another try in Thursday's Australian episode (June 25), after a crisis which had pushed them to breaking point.

    Viewers have seen Ben (Rohan Nichol) struggle to forgive Maggie (Kestie Morassi) since discovering that she once had a one-night stand with his brother Marco.

    Although Maggie was 17 at the time and had briefly split from Ben, he was unable to move past the betrayal and the years of secrecy.

    However, in the latest visit to Summer Bay on Australia's Channel 7, Ben changed his mind just when it looked like he was going to lose Maggie for good.

    Having decided on a fresh start, Maggie was all set to leave the Bay without Ben and start a new life in Italy.

    As a result, Ben realised what he stood to lose and carefully considered whether his hardline stance against Maggie's betrayal was really worth it.

    After an all-night emotional chat, Ben and Maggie decided their marriage was worth fighting for and they made arrangements for him to move back in.

    The couple's daughter Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) spent hours avoiding them, fearful that the outcome of their make-or-break talks wouldn't be a good one.

    Returning from a romantic trip with her boyfriend Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor), Ziggy was delighted to realise that her parents were starting to get back on track.

    Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 next month.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).

    Home and Away's Ziggy Astoni to struggle with double exit decision
    Can she cope without her parents?


    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...exit-decision/

    Home and Away's Ziggy Astoni freaks out over her parents' decision to leave Summer Bay in upcoming scenes.

    Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) starts to doubt her own independence as it dawns on her that she'll no longer have the support of Ben and Maggie.

    Recent episodes on screen in Australia have seen Ben (Rohan Nichol) and Maggie (Kestie Morassi) defy the odds by solving their marriage crisis and reuniting.

    They have since decided to move to Italy for a fresh start, believing this is the best chance of making their relationship work in the long-run.

    Next week's Australian episodes see Ben and Maggie put final preparations in place for the move.

    The couple have decided to let Ziggy and her boyfriend Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) rent the family home after they leave.

    Ben also offers Dean the chance to take over his business, wanting it to be looked after well when he's gone.

    Just when things are looking positive for all concerned, Ziggy starts to get cold feet over her parents' planned departure. She previously told them that she didn't want to be part of the move, preferring to stay with Dean in Summer Bay.

    Ziggy wonders how she'll cope without Ben and Maggie and expresses fears that she'll be all alone without their support.

    This thoughtless comment upsets Dean, who feels overlooked by Ziggy in her moment of need.

    Can Ziggy make it right with Dean and become more confident over standing on her own two feet?

    Home and Away's Australian fans will see these scenes next week, while they air on Channel 5 in the UK in August.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).

    The end of an era? Home and Away's Ben and Maggie film heartbreaking farewell as they get ready to leave Summer Bay
    We're not ready for this...


    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...ie-leave-64562

    Tears will flow in Home and Away this week as Ben and Maggie leave Summer Bay for good.

    The married couple, who faced their biggest hurdle of late, are ready for a fresh start and intend to live out their days in sunny Italy.

    While the news of Ben (Rohan Nichol) and Maggie's (Kestie Morassi) departure hits their friends hard, daughter Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) spirals into depression.

    At the farmhouse, the Astoni's spend their final night drinking champagne and reflecting on their time in Summer Bay.

    Not all of it is heart-warming, of course, with many tears shed over Ben's depression, Ziggy's crumbled marriage to Brody (Jackson Heywood) and Kestie's cancer battle – and more recently, Ben and Maggie's relationship crisis after it was revealed Maggie slept with his brother years ago.

    As time ticks on and bags are packed, Ziggy worries what her life will be like without her parents.

    Then, Maggie finds Ziggy's old wedding album, which they both accept as closure.

    Later that night, however, her boyfriend Dean (Patrick O'Connor) finds her looking at the album and crying over what's been lost…

    "They've always been in it together and they've been through so much," Sophie tells TV WEEK.

    "She's lost. Where do you go from here?"

    The following day, Ben and Maggie are surprised with a farewell lunch hosted by Alf (Ray Meagher) and the Summer Bay community.

    In an afternoon on the beach, Justin (James Stewart), Leah (Ada Nicodemou), Marilyn (Emily Symons), Ziggy, Dean and Alf sit down for the celebration – and later, are joined by John (Shane Withington), much to Marilyn's dismay, who arrives in his wheelchair.

    As the sun goes down and the couple prepare to embark on a new chapter, Alf shares a toast a bright future and a long, happy life together.

    We'll miss you Ben and Maggie!
