Stephanie Davis hints that she’s changing her look following her sudden Hollyoaks exit

Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis has spoken for the first time since she was dramatically fired from the show last week.

It was announced on Friday that the 22-year-old actress – who played Sinead O’Connor in the soap – had had her contract terminated with immediate effect, sparking a flurry of speculation about why it had happened on Twitter.

Now Stephanie has broken her silence via social media to thank her followers for sticking by her.

It comes after the actress’s agent confirmed that she’d been sacked for showing up drunk for work, having already previously had warnings regarding her attendance and punctuality.

‘Stephanie’s contract was terminated following warnings for lateness, attendance and after a final incident in which she turned up to set unfit to work because of alcohol consumption,’ a spokesman tells the Mirror.

Despite the revelation Stephanie has insisted that she is fine.

‘I have no problems don’t believe everything you read. I’m staying quiet and rising above it,’ the Liverpudlian star Tweeted.

‘I know what’s.. true and what’s not. I’m all good xx’

Stephanie has also hinted that she might be about to overhaul her look following her shock departure from Hollyoaks.

The actress has been spending time with loved ones following the news, having shared a photo with a friend last night as they got ready for a cosy night in.

‘Night time chats with my bestie round the fire. #knowwhorealfriendsare #bestmatessincelittle @jayroberts94,’ Stephanie captioned the Instagram snap.

She also posted a sweet picture with model boyfriend Sam Reece and sent him an emotional message as she awaits his return from a trip overseas.

‘Not long my baby @samreece7 so excited to see u ahhhh ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ together again then I’m not leaving your side! God how I’ve missed u ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ my rock xxxx,’ Stephanie wrote.

Hollyoaks viewers are still surprised by Stephanie’s sudden departure and it sounds like Sinead – who the actress has played since she joined the show back in 2010 – will be missed by many.

‘ahh, I’ll miss your character #bestwishes Xx,’ one fan wrote on Twitter.

Another Tweeted: ‘gonna miss you onscreen so much sinead was one of my favourites you’re an amazing actressgood luck with whatever you do next’
