Kerry Katona slams Hollyoaks for 'axing' Sarah Jayne Dunn over OnlyFans account

Kerry Katona has voiced her support for Sarah Jayne Dunn, who parted ways with Hollyoaks following a dispute with show bosses over her OnlyFans account.

Sarah, 40, made the decision to set up an account on the subscription site last week, and subsequently met with soap bosses to discuss it further.

A decision, however, was unable to be reached, with Hollyoaks confirming last night that the actress would be leaving the show.

Fans of the Channel 4 soap were far from pleased with the decision, with many branding the serial drama ‘hypocritical’, recalling how several cast members posed for ‘babes’ and ‘hunks’ calendar shoots back in the day.

Kerry, 41, has now had her say on the matter, branding the whole thing ‘absolutely disgusting’.

‘I have never heard so much bulls**t in my life,’ the former Atomic Kitten star told The Sun.

‘I know most of the women in Hollyoaks, Corrie and all those – back in the day you were more than happy to push them all out to FHM, Nuts and Zoo and all the lads mags. Why shouldn’t they make money from their own bodies now? 

‘From what I am aware that is all Sarah has actually done. I do topless, she doesn’t even do what I do.

‘She does all very nice, sexy, fun, underwear. I think she has shown more flesh on Hollyoaks in a sex scene!’

Sarah told fans last month that her intention in signing up to OnlyFans was so that she could share her ‘racier’ images

She said that she had ‘thought long and hard’ about her decision, explaining that she wants to take back control of her image.

‘[it’s] about empowerment and confidence and having full power over my choices,’ she wrote on Instagram earlier this week.

The soap legend added: ‘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, to work hard on themselves, to eat well and healthily and to move their bodies in whatever way makes them feel most alive and energised, to wear whatever they like without judgement and to feel proud to be a woman.’

It was confirmed last night that Sarah and Hollyoaks had parted ways. 

A spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘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.’
