The exit of actress Eve Morey was seemingly leaked through social media when her friends and co-stars were spotted at a birthday leaving party, and now it's been confirmed by Aussie TV magazine Soap World.

The publication has revealed that Sonya will be rushed to hospital after she collapses, where she will receive some devastating news about her health – although the soap is keeping the exact details of the news under wraps for now.

Sonya has been at the centre of an attempted murder plot recently, as evil nanny Alice Wells tried to kill her off after poisoning her food and later leaving her by the side of a road.

Eve joined the show as Sonya in 2009 and appeared as a guest character for about a year before being promoted to a series regular.

Over the years, some of Sonya' biggest stories have included the revelation that she is Callum's mother, the dramatic explosion on her wedding day, and being betrayed by husband Toadie when he slept with the fake Dee Bliss, Andrea Somers.

Eve's on-screen son Morgan Baker (Callum) and on-screen sister Gemma Pranita (Jade Mitchell) have also both been spotted back on set recently, fuelling speculation that they're back for Sonya's exit plot.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 12.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5.
