Ziggy’s drinking spirals out of control in Home and Away

Since discovering Brody (Jackson Heywood) and Simone (Emily Eskell) together, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) has been on a downwards spiral, as her depression has turned into drowning her sorrows with alcohol and partying all night. Her behaviour is growing cause for concern for her friends and family, and Maggie (Kestie Morassi) and Ben (Rohan Nichol) are left wondering how to handle her wild behaviour in front of the surf club one morning.

However, they’re interrupted by Ziggy herself, strolling up from the beach after an early morning swim. It’s clear she wasn’t up early, though – she didn’t even make it home the night before, and decided to stay awake. It’s also clear she’s still drunk.

At work, Ziggy covers up her intoxication by pretending she’s happy and motivated to get started. However, it isn’t long before she hurts herself loosening a bolt, and Justin (James Stewart) quickly realises she’s drunk after smelling alcohol on her breath. He tells her she can’t be at work drunk, and sends her home for the day.

When Ziggy walks into the surf club with Justin, asking for Ben’s keys because she’s lost hers, her parents are confused until Justin says that Ziggy’s ‘under the weather’ and needs the rest of the day off.

Due to her erratic behaviour, Maggie is left wondering if Ziggy is responsible for the graffiti at the school, and she heads outside to try and subtly ask her daughter if she was responsible. However, Ziggy is furious that her mum thinks so little of her, and storms into Salt to have a go at Brody. She believes Simone accused her of the graffiti, and lets him have it. Will her behaviour calm down soon, or is it about to get even worse?
