    Sarah Jayne Dunn's difficult week

    It has been a difficult week for the star, with The Sun revealing that she'd been fired from her role of Mandy Richardson after more than 25 years.

    But Sarah refused to quit the 18+ website, leading to her being axed from her six-figure role.

    Despite Sarah being one of their biggest stars, they feared her raunchy online content was at odds with the show's young viewers, but fans have since accused producers of being "hypocrites" – arguing that the soap's storylines are racier than Sarah's pics.

    Sarah Jayne Dunn's involvement with OnlyFans

    Earlier this week, The Sun revealed that Sarah Jayne's tenure on the popular show had come to an abrupt end after a row over her involvement with OnlyFans.

    The beauty had been stripping off online for several weeks after joining the 18+ website, which sees users pay a subscription fee for exclusive saucy snaps.

    However, Hollyoaks' bosses warned her over her conduct as the show has a young audience, with producers finally taking the decision to axe Sarah Janye from the job.

    Despite her being one of their biggest stars, they feared Sarah's raunchy online content was at odds with the show's young viewers.

    They have since been accused of being "hypocrites" by fans, who have claimed that the soap's storylines are racier than her pics.

    Sarah has enjoyed six separate stints on Hollyoaks over the years, most recently reprising her role in 2017.

    Sarah Jayne Dunn on GMB (continued…)

    Slamming Sarah Jayne’s decision, Dominique Samuels said: “It is generally known for online pornography and that is why OnlyFans considered removing the x-rated content from it’s website due to concerns from card processing companies.

    “In my opinion I think it promotes a commodification and glorification of quite frankly prostitution and I don’t think it’s healthy for young girls. The reality is most  young women go into sex work because of things like mental health, addiction , poverty.

    “What we are seeing is a lot of celebrities who are cushioned by their wealth and their fame, promoting this sort of online prostitution as if it’s something to aspire to, when it’s not. The average person does not make 1000s a week, the average person makes on average £130 a month from OnlyFans.”

    In response Sarah hit back saying: “This isn’t about saying everyone should do OnlyFans, this is about taking control of your own images, your own choices and what you want to do with your body.

    “That is not saying go out there and do porn, that is saying go out there and take control of what you do. It’s not promoting the site and saying everyone should do it. Again, it’s a choice, it’s a choice to do what you want to do on there and it’s about control and it’s not forcing anyone to get on it. “

    Where is Emmerdale filmed?

    When Emmerdale first catapulted onto our screens back in 1972, it was filmed in the village of Arncliffe in North Yorkshire. 

    In 1975, the fictional village moved to West Yorkshire in order to cut production costs and was filmed in another real-life village, Esholt in Shipley.

    The exterior scenes of the soap were filmed at Esholt for 22 years but by 1998 local residents had grown tired of the production crew’s presence and the tourists the soap was attracting.

    ITV then set up a replica of Esholt on the outskirts of Leeds for external filming.

    Interior scenes are shot at ITV’s studio in the city.
