She was sacked and now she is swimming in coin

Former Hollyoaks actor Sarah Jayne Dunn has allegedly made more than £121,000 in only 48 hours as her OnlyFans subscribers seemingly doubled.

The actress became a household name across the UK last week after she was sacked from the Channel 4 classic soap for refusing to stop her work on OnlyFans.

However the widespread coverage meant the actor, who currently charges £11 a month, gained 11,000 new subscribers only two days after the news of her departure from the show broke.

After the 20 per cent cut OnlyFans takes, it’s believed she earned more than £96,000, reports the Sun.

“The pictures I’ve put on OnlyFans are no more explicit than the sort of things I’ve done in the past for magazines and even for Hollyoaks’ own official calendar,” she told the paper last week.

“I’m disappointed it has come to this, after so many years. I’ve loved being on Hollyoaks and I will miss the amazing cast and crew very much. But I feel like I had to take a stand.

“For me, this is about having the right as a woman of 40 years old to decide what is right for me.”

She continued: “I love photoshoots and I’ve worked hard for my figure. I don’t make a secret of the fact that I get a big boost out of it, and I’m not apologetic for that.”

Amidst the criticism of Channel 4, a Hollyoaks spokesperson 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.”

Considering Dunn claimed there is no money in TV, it looks like she made the best decision.
