    Probably feels down and out, goes to Salt, Tane serves her a drink or cleans the drinks up, they talk and she enjoys the non-complicated company and she ends it with Dean.

    A heartbreaking split and a shocking confession! Home And Away's Ziggy and Dean call it quits
    ''It's over!''

    Their relationship is hanging on by a thread. But in one fell swoop, Dean will lose the love of his life and put his entire future at risk.

    In this week's episodes of Home and Away, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) is grappling with big life changes.

    Justin (James Stewart) is preparing to hand over the garage to her as he recovers from surgery. It's a huge commitment and the mechanic wants to show she's deserving of the opportunity.

    Yet, her personal life continues to get in the way.

    Ziggy's boyfriend Dean (Patrick O'Connor) has only recently learnt he's the father of a young boy named Jai (River Jarvis). His ex-girlfriend Amber (Maddy Jevic) now expects them to come together as a family ? and by doing so, she secretly hopes it will reignite their flame.

    Ziggy has tried to find her place in the new family dynamic, but she's never felt more alone. The future she envisioned with Dean has been replaced overnight by his ex!

    "Being a good mum is everything to Amber and nothing will come between her relationship with Jai," Maddy tells TV WEEK. "But she wants a deep connection with someone. She wants to find someone who loves her for who she truly is- the bad-girl, single mum with a heart of gold!"

    Dean is also buckling under the pressure of keeping a dangerous secret. He and Colby (Tim Franklin) are guilty of murdering Ross (Justin Wozniak) and one slip of the tongue could place them behind bars. The dire situation is causing him to lash out at those around him.

    As his rogue attitude continues to cause problems in their relationship, Ziggy realises they simply won't survive. That night, she packs her bags and leaves.

    "The fear of losing absolutely everything is getting the better of Dean and he battles with whether or not he should be honest with Ziggy, because he knows there are consequences on both sides," Patrick says.

    The following day, Amber visits with Jai and learns of Dean's breakup. Using the moment to seize everything she's ever wanted, the healthcare worker presses for them to be together as a couple. But Dean wants Ziggy back.

    In an all-or-nothing moment, he confesses everything to Ziggy about his involvement in the murder and pleads for a second chance.

    Ziggy is momentarily lost for words as she contemplates what this means? her boyfriend was an accomplice to murder.

    Dean hopes his rousing speech has done enough, but unfortunately, it only cements Ziggy's decision to leave. He's not the guy she fell in love with? it's over.

    In a world of pain, Dean begins to spiral and in his hour of need, he turns to the one person who will listen: Amber.

    Will he make a huge mistake?

    Ziggy and Tane set Summer Bay tongues wagging as Home And Away?s hottest new couple
    ''There?s chemistry between them.''

    Despite several attempts to start afresh, Tane's life is one dodgy deal after another. But this time, he's caught red-handed.

    In Home And Away, Tane (Ethan Browne) decides to resign his position at Salt. He simply can't bear to be around Mac (Emily Weir), the pair refusing to acknowledge their feelings. Only now, he's out of a job and out of pocket.

    Mac is furious and shares her anguish with friend Ziggy (Sophie Dillman).

    The mechanic lets her friend vent, but is quietly confident she's found someone to help at the garage. Ziggy offers the position to Tane, who accepts.

    "Ziggy feels bad for Tane. She's aware of the situation with him and Mac, so offers to help him," Ethan Brown tells TV WEEK.

    "She's the kind of person who would give someone a fair shot without judgement of their past. She's also in a pickle with the garage and Justin being out of action, so she could do with some help."

    The pair grab a drink at Salt to celebrate, crossing paths with Amber (Maddy Jevic) and Dean (Patrick O'Connor) on the way in.

    Ziggy tries to make small-talk with her ex-boyfriend, but Dean blows her off. Amber chases after him, but not before suggesting that Ziggy refrain from flaunting her date with Tane in his face!

    Ziggy is both embarrassed and stunned by her assumption.

    The next day, she heads off early to the garage in preparation for Tane's first day. Along the way, she passes Willow (Sarah Roberts), who saw them at Salt together and cheekily suggests they're dating.

    Ziggy scoffs at the idea? why do people keep saying that?

    "Of course, there's chemistry between them," Ethan says. "Tane sees Ziggy as super-fun and non-judgemental. He feels at ease with her."

    Ziggy puts Tane straight to work. He isn't a qualified mechanic, but happily helps with oil changes, administration and general cleaning? until his brother Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) arrives with pizza.

    It's meant to be a kind gesture to mend fences, but Tane assumes he's being checked up on and asks him to leave. Soon after, Tane flies into a rage. He doesn't remember the fun person he used to be?

    A sympathetic Ziggy extends his duties and hands him the keys to lock up.

    That night, however, Tane returns to the garage with a van full of stolen goods.

    "To make himself feel in control of his life again, he reverts back to his criminal ways," Ethan says of Tane's behaviour.

    Tane intends to move the van in the early hours ? but is left in the lurch when his buyer pulls out. He scrambles to make other plans, not realising Ziggy is standing there?

    The horror is written all over her face as she discovers what he's done. What will Ziggy do next?

    Home And Away love triangle! Things are heating up between Ziggy and Tane but will Dean win her back before sparks fly?
    Tane and Ziggy share a sizzling moment ? as Dean vows to win her back.

    There's an evident spark between Tane and Ziggy ? and we're not just talking about their work at the garage!

    But will she take a chance on a new love or fall back into Dean's arms?

    After another close run-in with Leon (Will McNeill) and his gang of thugs, Tane can feel the walls closing in.

    His criminal activity has not only forced his brother Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), nephew Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and Mac (Emily Weir) into his mess, but his boss and co-worker Ziggy (Sophie Dillman)!

    "At this point, Tane is feeling quite emasculated and not himself.

    "After all his run ins with Ari and trying to please him, doing his best to lead a cleaner life, and not being able to express his feelings for Mackenzie due to obvious reasons, he is not feeling too good about himself and where his life has ended up," Ethan tells TV WEEK.

    "Ziggy feels bad for Tane as she is aware of his feelings for Mac and offered to help him. She's the kind of person who would give someone a fair shot without judgement of their past."

    After agreeing to do a final job to pay off the $25K drug debt, Leon backed off ? but Mac isn't convinced.

    She arranges to meet Leon and pay off the debt by handing over the keys to her Porsche.

    Ari is livid at his girlfriend, while Tane's guilt eats him up inside?

    Knowing how overworked Ziggy is at the garage, Tane decides to do a good deed and arrives on her doorstep with pizza and beer.

    The mechanic is delighted and they spend the night chatting.

    As the hours wear on, Ziggy offers the couch as a spot to crash ? the offer met with an intense gaze from Tane.

    They both quickly pull away from the moment before anything happens?

    "Of course there's chemistry," Ethan teases.

    "Tane and Ziggy seem to banter very well and have a laugh."

    The following day, Ziggy's mind races with thoughts about Tane.

    Is there more than friendship on the cards?

    Before she can find out, Dean, drunk and upset, appears on her doorstep.

    He just watched his best mate go to jail and doesn't want to lose Ziggy as well.

    Ziggy tells him to sleep it off ? the rejection hitting Dean like a ton of bricks. He stumbles to his car and drives off before Ziggy can stop him.

    Ziggy reprimands herself for how she handled the situation and rushes to Salt, but he's not there.

    With Tane's help, she scours the sands of Summer Bay to find him.

    Eventually they locate his car on the side of the road.

    Dean is unconscious and slumped over the wheel!

    Will he be okay?

    Home and Away gets steamy as Ziggy and Tane finally give into their feelings
    ''Ziggy has always been a sucker for the underdog.''

    Lust, lies and loyalty are at the core of Home And Away's epic season finale this week.

    But the question is: who finds happiness, and who's left to pick up the pieces of a broken heart?

    Strap yourselves to your surfboard, because another wave of emotion is barrelling into Summer Bay.

    The action begins at the local garage, where mechanic Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) is struggling to keep the business afloat.

    She has stepped up in her boss Justin's (James Stewart) absence as he recovers from surgery.

    Unfortunately, her new employee, Tane (Ethan Browne), decided to use the garage as a place to hide stolen goods ? and this week, it becomes the focus of a police operation.

    "Ziggy has always been a sucker for the underdog and she wants to see the best in people. I admire that about her," Sophie, 27, tells TV WEEK.

    "Unfortunately, it gets her into trouble when it comes to the law."

    Ziggy tries to conceal the truth from Justin, who the police call to assist in the case, but Tane ? who is now being blackmailed into committing a robbery with his brother Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) ? confesses it was all his fault.

    While his actions might be noble, his confession has inadvertently put Ziggy's job in jeopardy!

    An angry Justin fumes at her for being so reckless and implies that the only reason Ziggy helped Tane is because she has feelings for him? not unlike how she and ex-boyfriend Dean (Patrick O'Connor) started dating.

    Ziggy resents the suggestion and denies it? but is she lying to herself?

    "She likes Tane as a person, and can see he's been struggling, so she wants to help. But in that friendship, she begins to develop feelings for him," Sophie says.

    Ziggy heads to Salt to blow off steam and finds Tane drinking alone.

    The pair quickly patch up their differences, their chemistry sizzling below the surface.

    By the end of the night, Ziggy and Tane are tangled in the sheets, their desire getting the better of them.

    "Ziggy tends to act first, think second in this situation, and she's drunk too much," Sophie says. "Whether she has feelings for him is yet to be determined."

    The next day, her thoughts about the night before are interrupted by none other than Dean, who apologises for his inebriated behaviour earlier and begs for a second chance.

    "I love you," he tells her on the beach. "Please think about it."

    Ziggy is torn ? she has always loved Dean, but Tane offers a fresh start, despite his criminal tendencies.

    Who will she choose?

    Home and Away's Ziggy Astoni to face a new struggle as Dean's son Jai returns
    Jai isn't too pleased to see Ziggy when he visits his dad.

    Home and Away spoilers follow for Australian and UK viewers.

    Home and Away's Ziggy Astoni will soon have another battle to face as her reunion with Dean Thompson comes up against a hurdle once again.

    Following their split in September 2020, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Dean (Patrick O'Connor) were drawn back together over the summer and, following Dean's brush with death in the recent dramatic car crash, the couple decided to give their relationship another go.

    However, things haven't been easy for the pair as Dean recovers from his serious injuries, having initially tried to distance himself from Ziggy as he worried about the amount of physiotherapy he has ahead of him.

    Ziggy has remained by Dean's side, determined to help him, but in scenes to air this week in Australia, she is confronted with another struggle.

    TV Week reports that Dean's young son Jai (River Jarvis), who Dean shares with his ex Amber Simmons (Maddy Jevic), will return to Summer Bay after leaving with his mother in May.

    Dean will be reluctant to let Jai visit him, adamant that he doesn't want his son to see him injured, but Ziggy encourages him to invite Jai to stay and spend some time with his dad.

    Sadly, Ziggy's kind intentions aren't appreciated by Jai. When the boy arrives to see Dean, Ziggy hears him asking why she needs to be there as well ? suggesting that Jai won't easily accept her being a part of his dad's life again.

    "I think they want to push through this," actor O'Connor said of his character Dean's rocky relationship with Ziggy. "They belong together."

    But will the couple be able to get over this latest setback?

    O'Connor told Digital Spy earlier this year that he has enjoyed playing Dean as a father, saying: "It was a situation where Dean really had to be a responsible adult and think more about others.

    "Dean had to not take things too seriously and have a bit of fun, which is what you do around kids. It's been a blast to film."

    Jai's return scenes will air this week in Australia and in November in the UK.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.

    Home and Away's Ziggy and Justin go head-to-head while Roo grapples with losing her mother
    ''It's frustrating for Ziggy.''

    How do you separate your personal and professional lives when they're working under the same roof?

    In Home And Away this week, for Justin (James Stewart), the cost of giving Theo (Matt Evans) a job at the garage could be his working relationship with Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) when she decides enough is enough.

    Justin continues his parental guidance of Theo in the wake of his dangerous graveyard stunt with Ryder (Lukas Radovich) and theft of the surf club's Polaris.

    But the wayward teen continues to cause issues on the job. Lazy, reckless and full of attitude, Theo has been more of a chore than a help.

    Now, it's about to get worse.

    At The Diner, Justin receives a phone call from Leah (Ada Nicodemou), who has been overseas visiting family ? or so she says.

    In truth, she's staying in the city with Theo's parents, hoping to mend the rift between father and son.But Theo overhears the conversation, and his anger boils over. How could she betray him?

    The teen, who recently confessed his father's abusive past to John (Shane Withington), fears the worst and begs Leah to come home. Yet, he fails to say why.

    The next day, Theo's frustration brings chaos to the garage when he abandons work and snaps at an unsuspecting Ziggy.

    Justin intervenes, but instead of reprimanding his bad behaviour, he gives him an apprenticeship instead. Ziggy is livid.

    "It's frustrating for Ziggy because he gets the opportunity very easily," Matt tells TV WEEK. "He did muck Justin and Ziggy around a lot and wasn't 100 per cent deserving of it."

    Despite her objection, Justin stands firm on his decision. "It's my business," he states plainly.

    Never one to back down, Ziggy produces a stack of r?sum?s from women applicants ? Theo isn't nearly as qualified. In a fiery exchange, they put everything on the line for their beliefs, including their friendship.

    After someone who was on a H&A Tour recently posted a photo of filming (at Palm Beach) of Ziggy with what seemed to be a baby-bump, TV WEEK have now included this story:

    "Baby on Board

    A new resident is set to arrive in Summer Bay soon: Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Dean (Patrick O'Connor) are expecting a baby! The exciting news is an unexpected surprise for the couple, who have endured more obstacles than most. We can't wait to see how this plays out onscreen!"
