Actress Sarah Jayne Dunn was recently sacked from British soap opera Hollyoaks for joining a controversial media sharing website. The Channel 4 star clashed with production bosses after she announced the launch of her account last month and refused to remove her page from the site.

As per The Sun, the decision to axe Sarah was undertaken after the creators were “unable to reach a resolution” with the actress. It was mentioned that showrunners found the questionable online content “at odds” with the young target audience of the show:

"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 websites.”

However, the production house also shared that they respect Sarah Jayne Dunn’s decision and are “sad” about her departure from the project:

"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... 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."

Meanwhile, the actress said she decided to maintain her stance to feel empowered and have complete control over own life choices:

“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.”

Sarah Jayne Dunn has been associated with Hollyoaks since 1996 and will be parting ways with the popular show after 25 years.
