Hollyoaks’ Sarah Jayne Dunn has reportedly been sacked after refusing to delete her OnlyFans page.
The actress, who is one of the soap’s biggest stars, was issued a warning after bosses said that her raunchy content online was at odds with their younger audience.
Yet Sarah, who has appeared on Hollyoaks on-and-off as Mandy Richardson since 1996, refused to quit the site and is said to have since left after being unable to “reach a solution” with bosses.
It comes after the actress said that she was “taking back control” by joining the website and admitted that some fans would find it “shocking”.
Earlier on in her career, Sarah had posed for a number of lads mags.

She said: 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.”
However, bosses reportedly disagreed with the suggestion that she was empowering herself by being on the platform.
A source told The Sun : “Nobody at the show wishes to condemn people’s personal decisions about OnlyFans or online content – and of course women are totally free to make their own choices about the sort of photographs they wish to take of themselves – but this was about whether it is something that tallies with the show’s audience.”
A Hollyoaks spokesperson also told the publication: “Hollyoaks is a youth-facing drama with many young viewers, who follow our cast very closely, both in the soap and outside of it.
“We take our responsibility to our young audience very seriously and therefore the show does not allow any Hollyoaks cast members to be active on certain 18+ websites.
“We had hoped we could reach a resolution with Sarah that would allow her to remain in her role as Mandy, but we respect her choice to continue to produce content on OnlyFans.”
The Mirror has reached out to Lime Pictures and Sarah’s reps for comment.
