Stephanie Davis has announced her Hollyoaks exit after 10 years in an Instagram post.
The 27-year-old has played the role of Sinead O'Connor on the Channel 4 soap in two separate stints, first from 2010 to 2015 before rejoining the show in 2018.
The actress confirmed the news in a cryptic post on Instagram which featured an image with the words "goals: be happy".
In the accompanying caption, she wrote: "Sometimes we make decisions based not on what we want but what we know is right! I have loved bringing Sinead into your homes for the past ten years but it's with a heavy heart I have decided to leave Hollyoaks and now looking forward to working on new and exciting projects."
Confirming the news, a Hollyoaks spokesman said: "In mutual agreement with Lime Pictures Stephanie Davis is leaving her role as Sinead O'Connor on Hollyoaks. We would like to thank Stephanie for her huge contribution to the show and the enjoyment her character Sinead has brought to fans."
Davis's exit comes days after co-star Rachel Adedeji announced her own departure from the soap.
