Sarah earned a whopping £7,200 in just a week after joining the X-rated subscription service but will now no longer appear on the soap after discussions with producers – a decision which fellow OnlyFans user Kerry Katona has since branded ‘bulls**t’.

‘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?
‘I think the bosses are very, very silly and stupid and they need to move with the times and I think she is so empowering. And more respect to her.’
‘I have made well, well, well over a million now. I think she can do the same, I think it’s bloody brilliant. It’s her body. I hope she gets her t*ts out. And shows that women can empower themselves.’
In a statement about the decision a Hollyoaks representative 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.
‘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.’
A TV source had previously told The Sun: ‘Nobody at the show wishes to condemn people’s personal decisions about OnlyFans or online content – and of course women are totally free to make their own choices about the sort of photographs they wish to take of themselves – but this was about whether it is something that tallies with the show’s audience.

The actress also shared a link to the website with her 184K followers saying: ‘Welcome to the new home for all my racier content, I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you’d like to see most.’
Sarah went on to explain her reasoning behind joining the platform, saying: ‘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.
‘I love doing photo shoots, always have always will, it’s how I got into the acting industry, at the tender age of 12 I decided I wanted to be a model and enrolled on a modelling course, joined an agency and had my first professional shoot and I was hooked. I got my first tv audition and the rest is history.’

She went on to explain she is taking back control after years of doing lads mags and she wants to put ‘healthy boundaries in place.’
‘I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some pretty amazing places for photoshoots since being 17, that being said I’ve never felt in control of the content or of the finances,’ 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.’
The actor added that she understood the images weren’t for everyone, which is why she is now putting them on OnlyFans.
She admitted: ‘I’ll undoubtedly be judged, some might find it shocking, but I’m simply moving my sexier, racier images to another platform, I’m not sure what’s shocking about it.
Sarah concluded by saying she plans to rise above the haters if she gets trolled over the move.
Many stars have decided to join the platform to share their sizzling snaps including Kate Moss’ younger sister Lottie Moss.
The model has earned herself a lucrative fanbase after signing up to the service which enables paying viewers the opportunity to access exclusive content.

Speaking to close friend Jaime Laing’s Private Parts podcast about her OnlyFans platform earlier this year, she said: ‘You can make upwards of like $100,000 a month if you’re doing it regularly and have followers.’
The model stressed: ‘It’s so good.’
Former Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona also joined OnlyFans and has revealed that she managed to turn her financial difficulties around.
The singer said she has managed to earn £1million since being declared bankrupt in 2008 thanks to the site.
Speaking to the Mirror, the star said she is now earning as much as ‘tens of thousands a month’ by sharing sultry snaps and images of her feet.
She told the publication: ‘People are quick to say, ‘she’s desperate’ if I get out a bit of nipple, but I’ve made my first million since bankruptcy and I’m so, so proud.
‘If it wasn’t for OnlyFans I wouldn’t have had money to invest in myself and in making more companies.’
Since starting her account, Kerry has been able to open her very own online clothing company, KerryBoutique, as well as a dating app with her fiancé Ryan Mahoney.
She has also been able to send her son Dylan-Jorge to a private school thanks to her financial stability.
