Yashvi (played by Olivia Junkeer) first arrived on Neighbours as the eldest daughter of Dipi Rebecchi (Sharon Johal) and Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coghlan) and has been involved in a number of high-profile storylines. With the youngster’s parents having already moved away earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before the police officer was going to make an exit from the Channel 5 soap. Scenes already aired on-screen in Australia has seen the loveable character embroiled in a terrifying car crash and this could be the way she makes her departure from the show as she loses her life.
The drama kicks off next week on UK screens when the youngster tries to help her colleague, Levi Canning (Richie Morris), with a personal matter.
Recently, the latter has been delving into his past and wanting justice for the attack he suffered as a child which led him to develop epilepsy.
Levi has confronted Mitch (Kevin Hofbauer) and Nelson (Rhys Mitchell) already but the former will try to strike a deal with the heartthrob to ensure both parties walk away with what they want.
Not wanting to go back to prison, Mitch explains he will sell out Nelson but wants total immunity in return.
Though being a police officer, Levi doesn’t believe the plan is solid and drafts in Yashvi to help him face the criminals.
The duo followed Mitch to a warehouse and just as they think things couldn’t get more shifty, they do tenfold.
It appears they were duped by the villain and wanting to get away from them, he jumps in a car and makes a getaway.
Not wanting his attacker to live a life of freedom, the heartthrob pursues him with haste but a devastating chain of events follow.
He fails to pay attention to what’s going on around him and doesn’t see a car speeding towards him and Yashvi.
Unfortunately, he loses control of the car and within seconds, the biggest stunt to air on the soap in quite a few years unravels.
Nothing but a wild dream
It turns out Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) is the driver of the other vehicle and she is horrified when she sees Levi’s car flying through the air.
Although her grandson emerges from the wreckage unscathed, Yashvi isn’t in the best way and it’s up to Sheila to keep her breathing until the emergency services arrive.
As soon as the paramedics are on the scene, the youngster is escorted to the hospital and the medics tell her loved ones to prepare for the worst.
With this in mind, Dipi makes her return to Ramsay Street as she waits to see if her daughter will make it through the night.
It’s not been revealed whether or not the police officer will succumb to her injuries but with the actress who plays her, Olivia, departing the role, it’s very likely she will be killed off.
As the exit has already played out on-screen in Australia, soap star Olivia has recently taken to Instagram to share her thoughts on leaving the show.
Having been in the role of Yashvi for four years, the actress wrote: “From little chicken Olivia to big chicken Olivia – thank you @neighbours for bringing me into the world of acting with open arms.
“The last four years of playing Yashvi Rebecchi has been nothing but a wild dream.
“I wouldn’t be anywhere close to who I am without the beautiful cast and crew who loved, accepted and supported me on my best and worst days (an understatement).
“Thank you for helping me grow into the diva I am today, and sorry that I still can’t kick a footy,” she concluded.
Fans of the show responded to the post, with one writing: “[Won’t] be the same without you, all the best for whatever the future brings.”
Another posted: “You were one of the best characters on the show. Disappointed to see you leave but good luck with the future!”
Whilst a third remarked on the social media platform: “We’ll all miss you from our screens best of luck with future projects.”
A fourth shared: “Good luck Olivia but I am still your follower on Instagram. Will miss you as Yashvi in Neighbours. Poor Ned [Willis], he will miss Yashvi so much!”
