POPULAR actor Hugh Sheridan is taking a break from Packed to the Rafters, fuelling talk he will leave the show for good.

The Logie-winning star of the top rating Channel 7 show will film his last scenes for series five in February before heading to Los Angeles.

Seven is saying that while he is taking a break for now, the network is still in discussion with Sheridan to return for series six next year.

Sheridan has been with the show since it began in 2008 and is one of its most popular cast members.

During a break in filming last year, Sheridan headed to Los Angeles to sound out opportunities in the entertainment capital of the world. He has always made it clear that he wants to try his luck there.

With Sheridan and his on-screen sister Jessica Marais out of the show for now, only Angus McLaren, in the role of Nathan Rafter, will be left in the Rafter family.
