Instagram removes Hollyoaks screenshots for sexual content as star is axed

We can see Gemma Merna covering her breasts with melons, Parry Glasspool barely managing to hide his genitals after being caught naked and David Tag also playing out a scene where Sylver has to hastily cover his modesty.

Instagram removed the images from Martin’s Stories, flagging them as violating their rules over sexual content.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘Not these @hollyoaks episode screenshots being removed from my story for violating sexual activity rules. Tells you everything you need to know about them and why they aren’t acceptable for 6.30pm viewing

‘Not these @hollyoaks episode screenshots being removed from my story for violating sexual activity rules. Tells you everything you need to know about them and why they aren’t acceptable for 6.30pm viewing.’

For the same reason as Instagram’s flags, Metro.co.uk has never used any of these scenes as an image for social media, knowing that Facebook and Instagram would pull us up on them.

Releasing a statement over Sarah’s exit after years on the show, a Hollyoaks spokesperson told us: ‘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.

Sarah recently shared her thanks to social media users for their support.

Her former co-star Jeremy Edwards appeared on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show to slam the decision while Loose Women’s Linda Robson defended the actress on the ITV panel show.
