Former Hollyoaks babe Stephanie Davis has revealed SHE left Hollyoaks, denying claims she was fired by producers.
The star has stripped off for a sizzling lingerie shoot with Zoo magazine , putting to bed rumours surrounding her sudden exit from the Channel 4 soap.
Stephanie, who played Sinead O’Connor in the TV series, showed off her incredible figure in a series of racy snaps for the mag, wearing lacy black underwear and suspenders as she posed up a storm in front of the camera.
Speaking out for the first time about her Hollyoaks exit, she told the mag: “It was ultimately my choice to leave! I just walked and then the producers told me if I didn’t come back they’d have no option but to terminate my contract, but that it was my choice.
“I regret the way it ended – I probably should’ve gone about it in a better way, but I was desperate for a break.”
It comes amid rumours the star’s contract was terminated due to heavy partying – but Stephanie has gone on to defend herself.
She added: “I’ve always had fun and when I started the show I did like to party, but I’m just like any normal 22-year-old and I’m sure everyone is the same as they’re growing up – everybody has to be 18 and a little crazy at some point. The drunken thing was there for people to believe if they wanted to but I know people in the industry know me for what I really am.”
Speaking about her photo shoot, she added: “I’ve always wanted to do a few sexy lingerie shoots but being in a soap was busy work so I didn’t have the time. I’m really happy at the moment and I’d love to strip off for you all again!”
Could this be the start of her modelling career?
