    Neighbours lines up exit for Leo Tanaka as Tim Kano bows out
    The character will be leaving after a three-year stint.

    Neighbours star Tim Kano has been revealed as the latest cast member who's bowing out from the show.

    The actor is now looking ahead to new projects after playing the role of Leo for the past three years.

    Viewers became suspicious over a possible exit for Leo two weeks ago, when pictures online showing a cast gathering were rumbled as a potential leaving party.

    A post on the website for Tim's management later confirmed: "This year sees Tim finish up at Ramsay Street and take on Hollywood."

    Leo joined the cast of Neighbours in 2016 alongside his on-screen brother David, played by Takaya Honda.

    The siblings' arrival was initially shrouded in mystery, but they were later revealed as long-lost sons of Paul Robinson.

    Leo's major storylines have included his relationships with Mishti Sharma (Scarlet Vas) and Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou).

    His dodgy past also regularly came back to haunt him, including at the beginning of the year when the dangerous Renshaw family came looking for revenge and sparked a shock siege in the Lassiters complex.

    When approached over Tim's departure, a Neighbours spokesperson told Digital Spy: "We do not comment on any cast exits."

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours revisits Robert Robinson storyline as Leo Tanaka gets a big shock
    What is David up to?

    Neighbours revisits the show's past next week by delving back into the dark story of Paul Robinson's son Robert.

    Robert, played by Adam Hunter, was last seen on the main show in 2007 and is best remembered for causing the plane crash that killed the Bishop family.

    Next week's episodes see David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) arouse suspicion when it's clear that he's working on a secret plan.

    Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson) is particularly interested in David's behaviour and makes a bet with Leo that she can find out what he's up to.

    As Roxy does some snooping, she overhears an excited David on the phone, talking about an imminent meeting with a mystery person.

    Roxy's first theory is that David and his husband Aaron Brennan are planning to foster a child, but Leo isn't so sure this is the real reason for his brother's strange behaviour.

    When Roxy later gets her hands on David's phone, she redials the last number in his call history.

    Roxy is baffled when she finds herself talking to a maximum security prison, but Leo realises exactly what's going on.

    Leo is horrified as it dawns on him that David is planning to meet their unstable half-brother Robert. What is he up to?

    Adam played the role of Robert between 2006 and 2007. He also played Robert's brother Cameron, who died in 2006.

    More recently, Adam appeared as Robert for online spinoff series Neighbours vs. Time Travel in 2017.

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Friday, July 12 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours' Leo Tanaka left devastated after cruel cash con
    Newcomer Carmen leaves him with nothing.

    Neighbours businessman Leo Tanaka will fall victim to a cruel con next week.

    Leo (Tim Kano) makes a terrible mistake when he's too trusting around newcomer Carmen, a woman he meets at the Back Lane Bar.

    When Leo spends time with fellow bachelor Pierce Greyson at the bar, both are attracted to Carmen (Veronica Thomas).

    Leo ends up being the lucky guy as Carmen is interested in him rather than Pierce (Tim Robards). Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that Carmen has a hidden agenda for befriending Leo when she texts a mystery contact to update them on her progress.

    After Leo spends the night with Carmen at his place, they get to know each other better and he agrees to let his new love interest check out the Back Lane Bar's account books for him.

    Carmen comes up with some clever ways to save Leo money, and he's so impressed that he grants her greater access to his accounts.

    Later that day, Leo is confused as Carmen does a sudden disappearing act. When he looks at his laptop, her true agenda is revealed as all of his money has been stolen.

    Leo rushes straight to report Carmen to the police, but Mark Brennan doesn't have much information to go on – meaning that it'll be difficult to track her down.

    Mark also advises that Leo will be unlikely to receive an insurance payout, as he handed over his account details to Carmen willingly.

    As Ned Willis crossed paths with Carmen during her brief stay and recognised her from somewhere, he's later able to provide some new clues. It turns out that Carmen is a member of the Abernethy family and Leo was a deliberate target.

    Feeling desperate, Leo turns to his father Paul Robinson for a loan to help save the business before it goes under.

    When Paul demands controlling interest of the bar in return for the favour, Leo turns him down and instead takes a smaller loan from his brother David to cover the immediate payments.

    Although this avoids an immediate crisis, Leo still doesn't have a permanent solution. As Leo will be leaving the show in the not-too-distant future, could this devastating setback play a role in his exit?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, August 19, Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours reveals Leo Tanaka's exit storyline as Tim Kano bows out
    He shocks everyone by leaving without saying goodbye.

    Neighbours has confirmed that Leo Tanaka's exit storyline will air next week.

    Leo bows out from Ramsay Street after he's caught out for playing a role in the reappearance of Paul Robinson's ex-wives.

    Next week's episodes reveal that Paul's daughter Elle Robinson (Pippa Black) was the mastermind behind Lyn, Gail, Rebecca and Christina all returning, wanting to test the strength of his relationship with Terese Willis before their wedding.

    As Paul's loved ones gossip about the situation, Amy Williams remembers that Leo found an old picture of Paul's first wife Terry and handed it over to him – one of many supposed "coincidences" designed to push Paul over the edge.

    Leo struggles to hide his guilty look when Amy mentions this, betraying the fact that he knows much more about the situation than he's letting on.

    Under pressure from Amy and David, guilty Leo admits that he helped Elle to sabotage Paul and Terese.

    When David accuses his brother of acting out of jealousy, Leo admits that he's right. Although he thought he was over Terese and their difficult break-up, it turned out that he wasn't and couldn't resist the opportunity to cause some trouble.

    Once things have calmed down, Leo tries to apologise to David but is left feeling down when his sibling shuts him down, not wanting to talk about it.

    Feeling lost and regretful, Leo makes a lonely late-night exit to go in search of himself and his future – failing to say goodbye to his loved ones before he goes.

    Tim Kano's exit from the role of Leo leaked out in June this year. He has played the role since 2016.

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, September 9 and Tuesday, September 10 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
