Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Home and Away bosses have announced a pregnancy storyline for Mackenzie Booth.

Mackenzie (Emily Weir) confides in her friend and housemate Ziggy Astoni on Australian screens next week, explaining that she's expecting Ari Parata's baby.

The baby bombshell comes at a difficult time for Mackenzie, whose world has been turned upside-down since Ari's ex-partner Mia Anderson arrived in Summer Bay.

Over the past few weeks, episodes airing in Australia have seen Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) start to leave Mackenzie out in the cold following Mia's return to his life.

Ari was in a serious relationship with Mia (Anna Samson) years ago and he was also a stepfather figure to Mia's daughter Chloe. Their time together only ended because Ari was sentenced to ten years in prison.

Although Ari has been happy with Mackenzie, he has unresolved feelings for Mia and wonders how life could have turned out differently if he hadn't been sent to jail.

Future episodes will see Ari act on his feelings for Mia, suggesting that he may be ready to move on from Mackenzie.
