Ancient Hollyoaks Star Sarah Jayne Dunn called out the show for showing double standards on nudity.
Dunn, who played Mandy Richardson, was fired from the show after opening an OnlyFans account, but a recent episode of the Channel 4 soap showed Owen Warner’s character Romeo stark naked, even showing his bare bottom in front of the camera.
The scene raised questions among fans, calling out the show’s hypocrisy.

A fan tweeted“So Hollyoaks is firing Mandy for posing in fan-only lingerie last year. Tonight’s episode just had a completely naked Romeo back shot! A bit of a double standard, no? »
Dunn agreed. Addressing the subject, she posted on her Instagram: “Interesting how male nudity is deemed appropriate/suitable by the company for its ‘youth audience’, but a woman taking ownership of her own body is not. »
She later added, “Just a reality check. I’m not always super positive and happy. This week, I’m feeling pretty bad and I’m having a hard time finding the positives. »

Meanwhile, Warner is currently in Australia preparing to appear on I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here!
Speaking before entering the jungle, he said, “My character was written while I was on the show. He went to Spain for a bit.
“I’m excited for people to get to know me as a person and not as a character. People are so used to seeing me recite lines that were written for me, and most of them aren’t what I would say myself. »

Select omnibus episodes are available through Prime Video.
