After almost a year back in character as Mandy Richardson, she recently left the show after cruelly dumping her former hubby by letter and leaving in a puff of cold-hearted smoke.
Dunn told OK Extra of her decision to leave: “Hollyoaks is a huge part of my life. But I felt I’d taken the character as far as possible and now I want to try my hand at different things.
“I’ve just been for an exciting audition, but I don’t want to tempt fate by talking about it. If it comes off, it’ll be amazing!”
Speaking further about leaving Hollyoaks, she continued: “When I was asked to come back on the show, I felt Mandy had a much darker side to her. The writers gave me some fantastic storylines with Warren Fox and I really had something to get my teeth into.
“But it’s time to move on. This is my third time returning to the show. I’ll always come back if the storylines are strong enough.”
