Sarah Jayne receives a generous 80% commission from OnlyFans, where she’s carved out a lucrative sideline away from the acting industry.
It is now her only source of income after Hollyoaks, where she fond fame as Mandy Richardson, opted to terminate her contract – but the leak means her images can be viewed for free.
A source told The Sun: ‘This is just par for the course with any online platform.
‘Content gets leaked and it’s the same for all creators which isn’t right at all, but given how successful Sarah’s profile is on OnlyFans – in the top 0.5% of all creators worldwide – it’s really not an issue.
‘The team at OnlyFans are amazing at getting leaks taken down quickly. Sarah is just extremely grateful for the constant support and amazing feedback she gets to her content from her community on OnlyFans.’
