Brett Tucker quits 'Neighbours'
Neighbours star Brett Tucker has announced that he plans to quit the soap when his contract expires in September.

The 37-year-old actor, who previously starred on rural Australian drama McLeod's Daughters before joining Neighbours in 2007 as teacher Daniel Fitzgerald, told the Herald Sun that he plans to move to the US after winning a green card.

"My contract was always two years and that was planned from day one," Tucker said. "I have loved the opportunity, it has been fantastic to be on the show.

"I won a green card in the US lottery and I was thinking about moving there anyway. I finish in September and my flight is booked for October 6."

Despite Tucker's imminent departure, it is yet to be confirmed whether his on-screen wife Kym Valentine will remain with the series, leaving fans to speculate over what will become of Ramsay Street's golden couple Libby and Dan. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
