Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis has been dropped from the soap with "immediate effect".

The Merseyside-based actress, who played the character Sinead O'Connor, got her big break appearing on BBC talent contest Over The Rainbow in 2010 where she was spotted by the Channel 4 soap and offered a role on the show.

She recently signed a new deal keeping her on the soap for another year, but a spokeswoman for the show said: " Stephanie Davis will no longer be filming Hollyoaks. Her contract has been terminated with immediate effect." She offered no further information.

Davis was nominated in the best actress category in the 2014 Soap Awards.

Her character's recent storylines include her giving birth to a baby fathered by her gay best friend and being held hostage in a siege.
