Hollyoaks SACK Sarah Jayne Dunn for refusing to quit x-rated OnlyFans website

HOLLYOAKS chiefs have axed one of their biggest stars after she joined adult website OnlyFans – saying her raunchy online content is at odds with the show’s young audience.

Glamorous Sarah Jayne Dunn has been stripping off online for several weeks, prompting a warning from bosses over her conduct because of the show’s young audience.

But after refusing to quit the site despite the threat of losing her six figure salaried job on the Channel 4 soap, she has left the show in a dispute with executives after first appearing on screens in 1996.

Bosses said they had been unable to “reach a resolution”.

Sarah, 40, has enjoyed six separate stints on the teen-focussed soap as Mandy Richardson – one of the show’s biggest characters – most recently reprising her role in 2017.

But she clashed with bosses over her decision to join the controversial 18+ network, where she claimed she was “taking back control” after previously posing for lads mags earlier in her career.

Admitting some fans would “find it shocking,” she explained: “I’m simply moving my sexier, racier images to another platform.

“This is a decision I’ve thought long and hard about, not one I’ve taken lightly or on a whim, it’s about taking back control, about empowerment and confidence and having full power over my choices.

“I love doing photo shoots, always have always will, it’s how I got into the acting industry, at the tender age of 12 I decided I wanted to be a model and enrolled on a modelling course, joined an agency and had my first professional shoot and I was hooked. I got my first TV audition and the rest is history.”
