Ajay and Priya were introduced to Neighbours as guest characters in 2011, before later being promoted to regulars and moving into Ramsay Street with their teenage daughter Rani.

In recent months, the couple's marriage has come under severe strain after Priya had an affair with bad boy Paul Robinson.

Neighbours is currently undergoing a period of change as show bosses have recently introduced the Turner family to the Street, while the Willises will also be joining in the middle of the year.
