Home and Away, Maggie Astoni, Ben Astoni

The clock is ticking as Ben Astoni has just 12 hours to convince estranged wife Maggie to stick around in the Bay on Home and Away!

Just as Maggie Astoni (played by Kestie Morassi) was leaving Summer Bay behind for a new life in Italy, her estranged husband, Ben (Rohan Nichol) has made a desperate plea for her to stay on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings)...

The couple's daughter, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) is surprised to see them back in town together.

So does this mean the Astoni marriage may not be doomed after all?

Maggie is NOT convinced, and reckons Ben's big declaration of love is too little, too late.

In fact, Maggie decides Ben has 12 hours to convince her why she should stick around.

Is Ben prepared to step-up to the challenge, and FINALLY forgive Maggie over her past fling with his brother, Marco?
