Axed Hollyoaks star slams soap bosses for blocking co-stars from joining OnlyFans


Sarah Jayne Dunn, who played Mandy Richardson on Hollyoaks for 15 years, has criticized soap bosses for preventing her former co-stars from joining her on OnlyFans. The actress was forced to leave the show in 2021 after launching her profile on the adult-only platform. Dunn revealed that all soap actors had to sign a new contract stating they couldn't join OnlyFans, or else they would have been let go. She expressed that while people are curious, they are unable to take that step due to the restrictions imposed by soap bosses.

Famous supporters reach out to Sarah

After joining OnlyFans, Dunn received messages of support from other well-known women on the platform, including Kerry Katona and Megan Barton Hanson. They commended her for standing her ground and praised her determination. Dunn stated that she never doubted her decision and felt a surge of confidence after making it.

A bold move amidst success

Sarah Jayne Dunn joined Hollyoaks during its peak in the early 2000s when the show had a massive audience of over four million viewers per episode. Despite initial skepticism, Dunn's decision to leave her long-standing role has proven to be positive. OnlyFans, launched in 2016 by entrepreneur Tim Stokely, gained popularity during the COVID lockdowns and now boasts two million creators and 130 million users. Although the platform initially announced a ban on sexually explicit content, it later reversed its decision.

Finding happiness and freedom

Dunn admitted that she didn't expect her journey on OnlyFans to turn out the way it did, but she has received overwhelming support. She attributed her decision not only to her dissatisfaction with the show but also to the impact of COVID and lockdown. Since joining the platform, she has found happiness, freedom, quality time with her family, and the ability to work on her own terms. This experience has transformed her outlook on life.
