Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Home and Away's Ari Parata will be the victim of a hit-and-run on Australian screens next week.

The new Channel 7 trailer (above) centres on Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) and Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir), as Mackenzie prepares to tell her ex-partner that she's pregnant with his baby.

But just as she readies herself to tell the truth, a car appears to deliberately mow down Ari – leaving his fate uncertain.

Viewers in Australia have recently seen Ari breaking up with Mackenzie after he realised he still had feelings for his ex-partner Mia Anderson (Anna Samson).

Although Ari and Mia have reunited, Ari is unaware that Mackenzie is pregnant – and the promo shows Mackenzie opening up to her friend Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman).

"I'm carrying Ari's child. He doesn't even know he could be a father," she says. "I have to tell him."

It is unclear who's behind the hit-and-run and the reasons why, but Ari and the Parata family are currently in danger from Paul and Leon, who are seeking revenge.

Channel 7 in Australia aired scenes showing Nikau Parata, Bella Nixon, Ryder Jackson and Chloe Anderson all being kidnapped by Paul and Leon, although thankfully the teenagers were rescued when Ari and Tane Parata arrived.

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.
