There's heartbreak heading for one family in today's Neighbours when Leo Tanaka makes the shocking decision to leave Ramsay Street...

Neighbours fans are in for a surprise today because Leo Tanaka is set to leave Ramsay Street in a sudden storyline twist.

The drama starts today when it is revealed he has been involved in the plot to sabotage Paul and Terese's wedding.

Paul's daughter Elle has been working alongside his former wives to try and convince him that marrying Terese would be a huge mistake, but when it is revealed that Leo knew about the plot his brother David didn't see the funny side.

The tension between the siblings reaches fever pitch today as David struggles with the fact he doesn't know his brother like he thought he did... and Leo is consumed with guilt over ruining Terese and Paul's wedding day.

However, it seems no amount of meddling can ruin things for Paul and Terese because they overcome Elle's plot against them today and tie the knot in a hilarious, impromptu ceremony... complete with an Elvis impersonator as their celebrant!

But while the new Mr and Mrs Robinson are the picture of happiness after getting married in Queensland, the same can't be said for Leo, who is struggling back in Ramsay Street.

After losing the Backlane Bar thanks to his money being stolen after his one night stand turned out to be a con artist, Leo has no job, no romance in his life, and now he is hurting because David won't give him the time of day.

Despite trying to make things up with David before he goes, David doesn't want to know and puts their frank conversation off until a later date.

However, what he doesn't realise is that Leo is planning on leaving and their chat will never happen.

After everyone has gone to bed, Leo writes his brother a letter explaining everything and makes a sneaky exit under the cover of darkness.

But how will David feel when he wakes up in the morning and finds his brother has gone?

One thing is for sure, there will be a Leo-shaped hole in the family from now on.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5
