Home and Away spoilers: Mackenize takes a fancy to Dean... watch out Ziggy?

Home and Away, Mackenzie

During a special happy hour event, Dean catches the eye of new Salt boss Mackenzie. Is Ziggy about to get a new love rival?

She's only been in Summer Bay for five minutes, but it's not long before Mackenzie, the new owner of Salt, finds herself on the wrong side of the law!

After local copper Colby Thorne notices her car is parked illegally, he gives Mackenzie a friendly warning to move it. However, since he's out of uniform, she just assumes he's a pretty-boy surfer sticking his nose in.

However, she's in for a surprise when Colby later turns up at Salt in his police uniform and issues Mackenzie with a parking ticket! Will she manage to sweet talk her way out of trouble? Could some flirty fun be on the cards for these two?

OR, does Mackenzie have her eye on someone else? During a happy hour event at the restaurant, Mackenzie meets Ziggy Astoni and her boyfriend, Dean Thompson and suddenly her mood changes. What is Mackenzie's interest in Dean?
