Emily quits soap for Matt.

SOAP star Emily Symons is to quit Home and Away to cement her relationship with soccer star Matt Le Tissier.

But her departure will leave millions of fans of the Aussie soap choking back the tears.

For the actress, who plays dizzy hairdresser Marilyn Fisher, will leave her fictional sugar- daddy husband, Donald, facing a bleak screen future as a harassed single dad.

Busty Marilyn will desert her headmaster hubby, who is in his fifties and twice her age, in a steamy come-to-bed storyline with a younger man.

And she'll leave Summer Bay besotted by the handsome Casanova from her own generation.

A soap source revealed: "Viewers will see Marilyn on screen for the last time in the New Year.

"She will walk out leaving ever-sensible Donald with their young child."

Pals are expecting Emily and Matt, an England and Southampton striker, to marry next Spring. Both have been married before.
