Sarah Jayne Dunn has been axed from 'Hollyoaks' amid a dispute over her OnlyFans account.

The 40-year-old actress - who plays Mandy Richardson on the Channel 4 soap - recently announced she would be joining the platform in order to regain control over her own image, having previously posed for lads' mags, but the move has now prompted the broadcaster to cut its ties with Sarah.

A Channel 4 spokesperson explained: "'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."

The actress previously explained that she was joining OnlyFans to "take back control".

She said: "The older I get the more cathartic it is to take back control, to put healthy boundaries in place and to know my worth and my value.

"That's what this is about, being in control, choosing empowerment. I feel sexy and strong and confident when I shoot images like this, I hope I give other women the confidence to own it."
