Axed CBeebies star Sarah Jane Honeywell, 47, shows off her toned figure in TINY hot pants and a racy bikini top… 10 years after her BBC sacking for THAT topless photoshoot
Former kids’ TV presenter Sarah Jane Honeywell looked amazing in her latest Instagram post, where she posed in just a bikini top and hot pants.
The star, 47, who was infamously sacked from CBeebies for taking part in a topless photoshoot for PETA back in 2011, posed on the top of a roof in front of Lincoln Cathedral for her most recent sexy snap.
The bikini showcased her eye-popping assets while the tiny shorts enabled her to flaunt her flat stomach and slender legs.
Wow: Sarah Jane Honeywell, 47, looked amazing in a latest post to her Instagram, where she posed in just a bikini top and hot pants.
In the black and white snap, she put her best 90s foot forward by sporting black Buffalo trainers.
She was wearing the attire to celebrate the 90s festival which is happening in Lincoln for BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
Sarah Jane lives in the city with her husband, Hollyoaks star Ayden Callaghan, with whom she has son Phoenix, five, and Indiana, three.
Captioning the post, she penned: ‘To celebrate #lincoln 90’s festival this weekend @bbcradiolincs I found a 1990’s ghost up on my roof….. she’s a bit of a geezer bird #ghosts of our past.’
‘It’s more a Blur than Oasis’: She was wearing the attire to celebrate the 90s festival which is happening in Lincoln for BBC Radio Lincolnshire
Continuing on: ‘What do you remember most about the 90’s Brit pop? Girl power? Ab Fab? (That’s who I’ve become! Crying gazza? The Diet Coke man? Super models? Gaming? Friends? Wonderbras? Tomb raider?’
Hinting to her past life she added: ‘Or did you party your way through the 90’s like me? So it’s more a Blur than an Oasis.’ With a cheeky faced emoji at the end.
Sarah-Jane shot to fame in 2002 on shows such as Higgledy House and Mighty Mites, alongside her sidekick Justin Fletcher, 50, however her career went down in flames when she posed for raunchy photos in 2011.
Axed: Sarah-Jayne was famously sacked from CBeebies in 2011 after taking part in a topless photoshoot for PETA to oppose eating meat (pictured)
After posing topless on a huge plate of food in London’s Trafalgar Square in a PETA campaign to oppose eating meat, she was met with rage from bosses and was dropped from the channel.
Sarah-Jane admitted she only agreed to do the shoot for a ‘bit of fun’ and wasn’t paid for her involvement, but still faced backlash from BBC bosses.
She told The Sun: ‘The BBC was asked to comment, and they simply said I no longer worked for them. That was how I found out. There was never a phone call or a single conversation with my bosses – despite me having worked there for 10 years’.
Hurtful: Sarah-Jayne claimed that she has heard nothing from ‘her best mate’ Mr Tumble – real name Justin Fletcher, 50 – after she was axed by the BBC in 2011
She admitted that after her sacking she was bombarded with online abuse criticising her behaviour, and she faced yet more criticism after speaking about taking cocaine in her youth.
In a 2013 interview she told The Sun ‘When I did my first line of cocaine, it felt like nothing. It was less mind-altering than alcohol. I started to think, ”I don’t get what the big deal is”. But what I didn’t realise is that cocaine is a slow burner.
‘That’s what is dangerous and what we forget to tell people. Over the first year of me doing it, it got worse and worse.
‘Cocaine psychosis had started to come into my life. I became paranoid because I thought people were following me. I was very thin. My friend and I realised one of us was going to die or go crazy.’
Sweet: After reflecting on ending her life, she was pulled back from the brink by her Hollyoaks star husband Ayden Callaghan, with whom she has son Phoenix, five, and Indiana, three (pictured in 2015)
