Neighbours has revealed Sharon Johal will be returning as Dipi Rebecchi in a guest capacity after her exit.

Executive producer Jason Herbison confirmed (via TV Tonight) that both characters are leaving Ramsay Street – the first official confirmation of Nicholas Coghlan's departure – while adding Dipi will be seen again sooner than expected.

"From their opening scenes four years ago, Sharon and Nick were completely committed to their characters and performance," he said.

"They embraced some really challenging storylines as well as capturing loads of fun moments which have endeared them to the Neighbours audience here and in the UK.

"While Shane and Dipi are moving on for now, like all families on Ramsay Street, the door is always open and in fact Sharon will be returning for [a] guest appearance very soon."

This week on 10 Peach, Dipi has been looking for a manager to run Harold's in her absence.

Nicolette Stone, who already works at the cafe, expressed interest and interviewed for the role, with Chloe Brennan offering to mentor her to make up for her lack of management experience.

Dipi and Shane's departure will affect Yashvi in particular. Future spoilers reveal she will consider her future in Erinsborough, with her boyfriend Ned Willis discovering she has been applying for jobs in Sydney.

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