Home and Away, Dean Thompson, Ziggy Astoni

Ziggy Astoni's fallout with her mum Maggie starts to cause conflict between her and boyfriend Dean on Home and Away. WHAT will she do?

Ziggy Astoni (played by Sophie Dillman) is still avoiding her mum, Maggie (Kestie Morassi) on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).

Ziggy was left reeling when she discovered Maggie had a one-night stand with Ziggy's uncle, Marco years earlier. This led to the SHOCK possibility that Marco might be Ziggy's biological dad!

However, paternity test results have now confirmed that Ben (Rohan Nichol) has been Ziggy's dad all along.

So Ziggy's boyfriend, Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) can't understand why she is still ignoring Maggie's phonecalls and refusing to have anything to do with her.

But when Dean tries to push Ziggy into talking to her mum, she SNAPS and warns him to stay out of family business!
