Sharon wasshaken by the news and viewers couldn't believe it either, with one writing on Twitter: "Dennis is the father what?!", while another said: "Dennis Rickman JR is the father. What a plot twist."

    Danielle Lloyd backs Sarah Jayne Dunn amid OnlyFans row

    DANIELLE Lloyd has backed Sarah Jayne Dunn saying joining OnlyFans was “the best decision I ever made”.

    Sarah, 40, was axed from Hollyoaks after they learned she had been selling raunchy snaps on the adult-only site.

    Danielle, 37, waded in on Instagram and said today: “I’ve just watched a debate on Good Morning Britain about OnlyFans. Obviously I’ve got an OnlyFans and I made the decision a year ago, I think it’s brilliant, probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. There’s no reason I wouldn’t be on there. I’ve done lads mags my whole life, that’s what my career was based on.

    “So I feel really sad for Sarah Jayne because I know she’s on a TV show and she’s got a lot of young fans, she’s not putting anything on there that is explicit, she’s not putting anything on there that nobody’s seen before.

    “She’s done all the magazines, she’s done all the lads mags herself. So it’s just crazy like I don’t understand.”

    She stopped following Hollyoaks’ official social media channels and vice versa after she was axed for selling saucy snaps to fans. The blonde beauty had been earning up to ‘£7,200 a week’ from posting raunchy images on the X-rated website OnlyFans.

    When soap bosses found out they they asked her to stop or lose her six-figure salary role as one of the Channel 4 soap’s biggest characters. They insisted her raunchy content, in which she strips for punters, was at odds with the show’s young audience.

      EastEnders’ Zaraah Abrahams fears for her character's life

      EASTENDERS star Zaraah Abrahams has voiced her fears for Chelsea Fox’s life as the character’s relationship with Gray Atkins takes a dark turn.

      Viewers of the BBC soap have been gripped watching the ups and downs of their relationship in recent weeks.

      Zaraah, 34, joined as yet another love interest for the serial killer and is now pregnant with his baby. Not only that, after an emotional reunion, Chelsea has agreed to married her future baby daddy – if she makes it that far.

      Zaraah, who only joined the cast last year, told Inside Soap: “I went straight to Di Parish [Diane], and said, ‘I haven’t paid my mortgage off yet!’ and she was like ‘Don’t worry too much – yet!’ But I was excited because I knew it would mean some really gritty stuff to come, and I love working with Toby-Alexander Smith [Gray].”

      She added: “He’s fantastic but what people don’t realise is how funny he is. He has such a dry sense of humour.”

      Denise Welch ‘removed from Hollyoaks set’

      DENISE Welch has revealed she was removed from the Hollyoaks set after testing positive for Covid.

      The 63-year-old, who plays Trish Minniver on the Channel 4 soap, slammed the “ridiculous” testing system after she received mixed results from her lateral flow and PCR.

      She tweeted:  “Just had covid. Nothing like the bronchitis I had recently which was most ill I’ve ever been. Lost taste & smell with both. At work 10 days ago. Was removed from set & they had me tested. LF & PCR taken at same time. LF was negative, PCR came back positive. Go figure.

      “By the way I’m not negating the danger of Covid in some people. I just lost my dad to pneumonia. All horrible virus’. But the testing is ridiculous. And to me all proves how pointless covid passports are.”

      The actress, who has been very vocal about being against Covid rules and vaccines for children, went on to claim: “The fact that these tests have not been stopped in nearly 2 yrs is unbelievable. In April 2020, my radiographer cousin told me that in her London hospital people were testing negative when their lungs clearly showed Covid. She was also told she couldn’t say that ‘publicly’.”

      Hollyoaks has confirmed that the set has remained open for filming to continue.

      Corrie's Anthony Cotton teases ‘big storyline’ in future

      Despite spending the last 18 years on the soap, Antony Cotton said he is still having the time of his life.

      He said: “Corrie is like a giant family. It feels nice to go to work with people that you know and love. I’ve known a lot of them for the past 18 years. I adore people there like they’re my own family. For the past 19 years, I’ve never wanted to say goodbye to that.”

      Corrie bosses have been forced to scrap a string of storylines due to coronavirus. But now restrictions for TV shows have eased, there are plans to finally get them done.

      Antony concluded: “There are stories that we tried to do, but in the end, we couldn’t because of the pandemic. So now they will happen over the next year.

      “I have a very big, dramatic storyline that I am hoping we can now pick up and do properly. We are getting back into the swing of things now, so I am looking forward to the next year.

      “I am hoping 12 months from now things will be completely back to normal.”

      'It can be more lucrative to leave the shows' (Continued…)

      A TV insider said: “Stars like former Corrie actor Helen Flanagan are inundated with opportunities to promote products on platforms including Instagram.

      “And earnings can often dwarf any salary actors get paid on the soaps, meaning it can be more lucrative to leave the shows to effectively sell goods.

      “This is simply a smart way to ensure they can still advertise products while remaining on the shows .

      “But they spell out in black and white what’s deemed unacceptable – as previously it’s been a grey area.”

      Corrie and Emmerdale stars banned from OnlyFans

      CORONATION Street and Emmerdale bosses have issued a ban on any of their stars appearing on adult website OnlyFans.

      Soap bosses issued the edict as part of a clamp down on actors flogging products on their social media platforms.

      ITV have banned anything that could bring the company into disrepute, including cosmetic surgery and diet products and “adult entertainment.”

      It comes in the wake of Hollyoaks receiving a major backlash for sacking actress Sarah Jayne Dunn after she launched her OnlyFans profile.

      Hollyoaks bosses claimed it was not in keeping with their "youth audience" and terminated her contract when she refused to delete it.

      Now ITV bosses have issued new rules that will allow their stars to cash in on their fame – just not on OnlyFans.

      The move allows cast members to post paid advertisements, with the producers’ blessing, in a bid to prevent cast members from quitting the shows because they make more money online.

      The banned list of goods banned by soaps

      SOAP bosses have clamped down on Coronation Street and Emmerdale stars flogging products on their social media platforms.

      ITV have banned anything that could bring the company into disrepute, including cosmetic surgery and diet products and “adult entertainment.”

      The list of goods which are banned also includes alcohol, gambling, tobacco, vaping, fireworks and financial products.

      All advertising deals can only happen if they’re deemed suitable by soap bosses.

      But if cast members work within the rules they could earn hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

      ITV have just introduced the rules and will review them in three months time as they are keen to ensure that any cast members’ deals don’t jeopardise their cash stream with existing advertisers.

      A spokeswoman for ITV declined to comment.

      Sarah's support

      The Sun revealed that the Mandy Richardson actress, 40, was dismissed from her £120k a year role after refusing to quit stripping on the X-rated OnlyFans website.

      Sarah has been stripping off online for several weeks and has received several warnings off bosses over her conduct because of the show’s young audience. The star refused to stop and has now now been asked to stand down from her role, that she first took on in 1996.

      But fans of the Channel 4 soap are fuming considering scenes on the show are just as racy as what can get posted on the controversial 18+ network.

      One wrote on Twitter: “Hollyoaks have hardly done youth friendly content outside watershed. Examples, the word b***h has been used in a derogatory term several times, there is literally a storyline with cameras in peris bedroom.”

      Another said: “@lgbthizzie @Hollyoaks they’re hypocritical! they’ve had multiple nude scenes with MEN, but as long as it’s a man it’s fine???? there’s some misogynistic behaviour happening with the bosses at lime .. someone needs their job role re-evaluate.”

      Dad is ‘a stranger’ 

      FORMER EastEnders star Melissa Suffield has revealed that her son thinks his dad is a “stranger” after spending five months apart.
