Sarah Jayne Dunn says she’d consider Hollyoaks return but only on one condition

Sarah Jayne Dunn has revealed that she might return to Hollyoaks as Mandy Richardson one day.

Soap fans won't need to be reminded that Dunn was axed from the Channel 4 soap in 2021 after launching her hugely successful OnlyFans account. The actress, 42, was hastily written out of Hollyoaks when she refused to leave the subscription site, where she's made an estimated £1.2m.

But Sarah has now hinted that fans could see her come back as Mandy after her dramatic exit. But she's told Daily Star that "a lot would have to change" if she were to reprise her role, and there's only "one reason" she would do it.

Sarah told Daily Star: "A lot would have to change at that company for me to ever return. The only reason I'd like to go back to that role, and like I say, a lot would have to change at that company, would be to honour the character and honour the viewers.

"Give her a proper send off, because she never got that. It was done so abruptly. That would be the only reason for me to ever return. But like I say, a lot would have to change."

On the soap, Many left the village for a new job in Los Angeles. Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) discovers a note from Sarah explaining she'd left the village in secret so that nobody could change her mind.

But we might see Sarah leave Mandy behind for good and take on a whole different character. The OnlyFans titan clearly fancies a challenge as she says she'd love to play a "Boss bitch" or even a drug addict.

"If I do go back to a soap I think it would be good to do something completely different to the character that I played," she said. "One extreme could be like a boss bitch villain or go the other way and play a heroin addict.

"I feel like people switch from soap to soap nowadays and no-one really bats an eyelid, but I don't know whether the character I played was so established for so long, that I would have to break that mold so it was very removed from her [Mandy]. But I'd love the challenge, that would be great. It would be nice to do that."

If it were up to her, she'd choose Coronation Street, and she previously told Daily Star about what that might look like. "Corrie would be the one", she said. "The likes of Steph Davies are on there now, so you go 'Okay, it can happen.'"

Sarah's OnlyFans success has made her so financially stable that she's now got the freedom to pick and choose when it comes to acting roles, and don't forget she also runs her own sex podcast, Hot and Bothered.

"Going back to a soap… I know what the hours are like," she said. "It would have to be a really good role and something that I really wanted to do for me to do that."
