Steven Roberts has announced his exit from Hollyoaks after viewers saw his character George Smith leave the village during tonight's E4 episode!

The character, who first appeared on the soap in 2011 as one of the new sixth formers was seen moving to London with his romantic interest Vincent Elegba (Jon Omole).

The reunion came after Phoebe (Mandip Gill) finally came clean to George about Vincent's reasons for returning to the village leading to the teen chasing the bus that Vincent was on and revealing that he wanted to go to London for a new life with Vincent.

Discussing his exit, Roberts commented: ''As I hang up my multi-coloured, furry, patterned ensemble for the last time I'd just like to thank the whole Hollyoaks team and viewers at home for all their support during my time on the show."

''I've been lucky enough to be part of some great storylines during my time here and, to coin George's favourite word, the past three years have been 'fabulous'. Thank you."

Roberts is the latest star to exit the soap with Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes) , Joe Tracini (Dennis) and Gemma Merna (Carmel) all set to leave the show in the coming months.
