SARAH Jayne Dunn has been spotted for the first time since she was sensationally axed from Hollyoaks.
The 40-year-old star appeared to be in good spirits as she walked her pet dog with husband Jonathan Smith.

The pair braved the November chill as they stepped out for coffee, with Sarah Jayne wrapping up warm in a chic black biker jacket with a fur trim.
She dressed down in a pair of baggy jeans and black shoes, her blonde hair tied into a casual ponytail.
The star showed off her natural beauty in minimal make-up, and smiled widely as she linked arms with her husband and they took turns holding the pooch’s lead.
While Sarah appeared to be happy as she took in some fresh air, she briefly looked stony-faced while checking her mobile phone.
It has been a difficult week for the star, with The Sun revealing that she’d been fired from her role of Mandy Richardson after more than 25 years.
The mum-of-one had been stripping off on subscription-only site OnlyFans for several weeks after signing up, but Hollyoaks bosses warned her over her conduct because the soap has a young audience.

But Sarah refused to quit the 18+ website, leading to her being axed from her six-figure role.
Despite Sarah being one of their biggest stars, they feared her raunchy online content was at odds with the show’s young viewers, but fans have since accused producers of being “hypocrites” – arguing that the soap’s storylines are racier than Sarah’s pics.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the actress said that she is proud to showcase her figure online because she has “worked hard” on it as she addressed the furore for the first time.
She told us: “For me, this is about having the right as a woman of 40 years to decide what is right for me.
“I love photoshoots and I’ve worked hard for my figure. I don’t make a secret of the fact that I get a big boost out of it, and I’m not apologetic for that.”
Sarah has enjoyed six separate stints on Hollyoaks over the years, most recently reprising her role in 2017.
In a statement earlier this week, a Hollyoaks spokeswoman said: “Hollyoaks is a youth-facing drama with many young viewers, who follow our cast very closely, both in the soap and outside of it.
“We take our responsibility to our young audience very seriously and therefore the show does not allow any Hollyoaks cast members to be active on certain 18+ websites.
“We had hoped we could reach a resolution with Sarah that would allow her to remain in her role as Mandy, but we respect her choice to continue to produce content on OnlyFans.
“In the past four years since her return to the show her legacy character has been an integral part of some our most important storylines and we will be very sad to see her go.”
