2013 Neighbours logoTaylor Glockner is to leave Ramsay Street next year.

The actor behind Mason Turner has told Digital Spy he will be leaving Neighbours in 2014 after a year on the show. Since his arrival, Mason has been at the centre of the biggest storylines this year which include his relationship with Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer) and conflict with bad boy Robbo Slade, which led him to being one of the suspects when Robbo died after a hit-and-run.

In a statement to Digital Spy, Glockner said: “It’s no secret that since his inception, Mason has been the catalyst for a remarkable amount of storyline. After a considerable discussion with the producers, we all agree Mason deserves a rest.”

He added: “I’ve been involved in so much high-intensity story in such a short space of time – coming up just shy of a thousand scenes in one year! I’m looking forward to some creative respite!”

Currently airing on Channel 5, Mason has rekindled his past relationship with Rhiannon Bates (Teressa Liane). His previous girlfriend Kate cheated on him with friend Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) which is exposed later this month.

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