Sarah Jayne Dunn says OnlyFans account that got her binned from Hollyoaks was initially rejected by site TWICE

HOLLYOAKS actress Sarah Jayne Dunn has revealed she was initially rejected by OnlyFans TWICE when trying to set up an account to flog raunchy snaps.

The soap star has been axed from the show after bosses discovered she had been selling lingerie and bikini pictures on the saucy subscription website, and refused to delete the account.

A row broke out after Hollyoaks higher-ups warned the mum, 40, over the racy pics – telling her to be mindful of her conduct because of the show's young audience.

And now, Sarah Jayne has revealed she was initially rejected when she tried to set up an account.

She told BBC R4's Woman's Hour: "I found the platform really difficult to set up my own account.

"You’ve got to provide ID, there’s facial recognition – and even then I was rejected the first couple of times."

Sarah Jayne explained she had difficulty setting up her account when quizzed about concerns over underage kids bypassing security measures to set up graphic accounts.

But the actress said she wasn't aware of the investigations.

And she insisted the snaps she put up on OnlyFans were “exactly the same type of content” that she had previously been sharing to her Instagram and Twitter accounts.

She said: “All I’ve done is move the lingerie and bikini shoots that I have done all my career, I’ve just moved those images onto a subscription platform now.”

The 40-year-old mum-of-one said she “wasn’t aware” the account could cause issues with Hollyoaks, adding: “All I’ve done is move my content from one platform to another.”

Sarah Jayne explained she had moved over onto the subscription site and now hoped her Instagram could be more “family friendly” and “wholesome”.

Although she admitted that previously, when she had uploaded some of the more provocative snaps onto social media, she had gotten lots of support – particularly from women.

Female followers make up more than 75 per cent of her 214K-strong Instagram fanbase, according to the star.

She said: “Actually, I get tonnes of support from women when I do put images up in bikinis because people are motivated, people are inspired.

“I train hard, I’m really into my fitness and healthy eating and women supporting women.”

And insiders revealed Sarah Jayne is already raking in the cash after setting up the account a few weeks ago – after the initial rejections – making £7,200 in just a matter of days.

The actress, who has starred in the soap since 1996, gained hundreds of subscribers.

She has since slammed the soap for "judging" her after cutting ties by deleting all trace of the Channel 4 stalwart from her social media.

She said: "I do feel judged, definitely.

"And I feel disappointed. I feel like I've been reprimanded for something I've been contractually bound to do, by the show, for most of my career.

"I'm actually not doing anything different to what I've been doing for as long as Instagram has been a thing."
