SHE was sacked for refusing to quit her OnlyFans side job – and now Sarah Jayne Dunn’s fans have vowed to NEVER watch Hollyoaks again.
The 40-year-old has lost her six figure salary on the Channel 4 soap in a row with bosses about her stripping off on the X-rated adult site.
Furious fans who have watched Sarah since she first appeared on screens in 1996 claim they’ll switch off in protest.
The glamorous actress has received huge support online from viewers, with one begging followers: “PLEASE DONT WATCH HOLLYOAKS TONIGHT!
“Firing Sarah when they constantly show naked cast members on their show is just disgusting!”
Today we revealed her racy OnlyFans pictures have been leaked online.
She has been charging fans £11 per month for access to sexy snaps – but was warned by bosses over her conduct because of the show’s young audience.
Now pictures have emerged after OnlyFans subscribers shared them online for free, but HOAR has chosen not to reveal where to find them.
We told last night now how the 40-year-old has left the show in a dispute with executives.
Bosses said they had been unable to “reach a resolution” after crisis talks.
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.
“I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some pretty amazing places for photoshoots since being 17, that being said I’ve never felt in control, of the content or of the finances.”
In a statement last night, a Hollyoaks spokeswoman said: “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.
“In the past four years since her return to the show her legacy character has been an integral part of some our most important storylines and we will be very sad to see her go.”
