Three characters of the first Asian family to feature of Channel 4’s daily show ‘Hollyoaks’ are set to leave.

Actors Junade Khan (Ash), Anthony Bunsee (Gov) and Nila Aalia (Bel) who form half of the Roy family will depart from the soap in September when the family’s storyline reaches a dramatic conclusion.

In recent weeks, Ash has been encouraging his brother Ravi (Stephen Uppal) to take part in illegal street fights, while completely unaware that his sibling has a brain aneurism.

However, in a shock turn of events, Ash punches his brother at the beginning of September, causing his aneurism to rupture and leaving him in a coma.

While the Roys struggle to come to terms with Ravi’s situation, Ash unveils a family secret, before being disowned by his relatives and forced out of the area.

Soon after, Bel and Gov also make the decision to vacate the village, leaving Ravi, Leila (Lena Kaur) and Anita (Saira Choudhry) behind to fend for themselves.
