Sarah Jayne Dunn has hit back at the Hollyoaks bosses who sacked her from the show this week because she refused to leave the raunchy website OnlyFans

The former soap star condemned the Channel 4 bosses decision - after cutting ties with the programme by unfollowing the Hollyoaks Instagram account - as she was spotted in her first public outing since the firing at the Boodles House 100th Anniversary event on Thursday night. 

She told 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 continued: 'For me this is about having the right as a woman of 40 years old to decide what is right for me.

'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.'

Sarah expressed sadness that her relationship with the soap had deteriorated and emphasised she would miss the cast and crew but maintained she had to retaliate. 

MailOnline has contacted Hollyoaks representatives for comment.

In a statement a Hollyoaks representative told The Sun: '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.'

It comes as Sarah admitted to The Sun that Hollyoaks isn't as well paid as people expect. 

She said: 'There's a huge misconception that people on TV shows earn huge amounts of money, it just isn't the case.
