She’s been a part of the show for 6 years but, it was recently announced that Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis has been dropped from the show.
Since she was 16-years old the actress has taken on the role of Sinead O’Connor but now the 22-year old has been told her contract is being terminated, effective immediately.
Speaking to the Mail Online a spokesperson for Stephanie has confirmed the news saying:
“Stephanie Davis will no longer be filming Hollyoaks. Her contract has been terminated with immediate effect.”
There hasn’t been any mention of the news on the star’s social media accounts aside from an Instagram post where spoke about “learning something new” and “rebuilding”. Her account is set to private however.
No one has identified the reason for her sudden departure from the show.
Her post also read: “Self-destruction is not an option. And let every choice you make be a brick in the foundation of rebuilding yourself.”
Stephanie’s character has been at the centre of some of the show’s major plot lines over the years and it was only in April of this year that she gushed online about her one year contract.
She spoke of her excitement with the Daily Star saying: “I'm really happy. I've been in the show since I was 16 and I'm 22 now. I've kind of grown up here, which has been mental.”
She first became noticed by TV bosses after appearing on the reality competition Over The Rainbow in 2010. After that she joined the Hollyoaks soap and has been involved in some of their biggest storylines; including a prostitution plot.
Just last year the fan favourite was nominated for a Best Actress Award and Best Dramatic Performance at the British Soap Awards.
