Neighbours star Jane Hall has discussed her decision to leave the soap, explaining that it was the right time to "move on" from Ramsay Street.

The actress has already filmed her final scenes as Rebecca Robinson, which air in Australia next week and in the UK in April.

Speaking to TV Week about her three-year Neighbours stint, Hall said: "It was fabulous while it lasted, but it's finished for me now. I think my character has come a long way and has had some pretty crazy stuff happen to her, but it was time to move on."

Rebecca's departure ties in with the brief return of her son Oliver (David Hoflin) and his partner Carmella (Natalie Blair), who arrive to help the bar manager amid her ongoing struggles with husband Paul.

Hall explained: "Rebecca's relationship with Paul had deteriorated to such a point that she felt there was no hope for it. She'd exhausted every possibility with him time and time again.

"You'll see someone who's taking on a new path in her life and who's starting to move in a more positive direction and look for a different way to live."

Hall announced her Neighbours departure last October.
