Home and Away spoilers follow from Friday's 5STAR first look episode (UK-pace).

Home and Away's Ziggy Astoni has demanded to know whether her uncle Marco could actually be her biological father.

Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) did the maths and came to an alarming conclusion following the revelation that her mum Maggie once had a one-night stand with Marco.

Friday's 5STAR first look episode (May 22) saw Maggie thwart Marco's attempts to blackmail her by confessing everything to her husband Ben.

Maggie (Kestie Morassi) explained that she slept with Marco once when she was 19. At the time, she believed her relationship with Ben was over for good as they'd briefly broken up.

The confession lifted a big weight from Maggie's shoulders, as she'd been sickened by Marco's ruthless blackmail plan to secure an investment into his business.

Sadly, her revelation also came with a major cost, as Ben struggled to process the fact that she'd been lying to him for so many years and stormed off.

Ziggy discovered what was going on when she witnessed a near-fight between Ben and Marco on the beach.

With Ben still in shock, Ziggy had to go to Marco for answers. He admitted that he always loved Maggie, but was forced to give up on her after she immediately reunited with Ben and got pregnant.

Noticing something suspicious in the timeline, Ziggy went straight to Maggie with a big question.

Maggie asked if she had managed to track down her father, but Ziggy replied: "That depends – if he even is my dad. Is Marco my father?"
