Hollyoaks star Jamelia has admitted that she is ‘not at all sad’ to have left the Channel 4 soap, amid a flurry of cast exits.

The Superstar hitmaker joined the show as Sharon Bailey back in 2021, but bowed out in scenes that saw her character move to Dubai last month.

During her time in the Hollyoaks village, consultant Sharon supported daughter Zoe Anderson (Garcia Brown) in getting an abortion, and dated Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas), much to the horror of Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood).

In the most recent episode of ITV reality series Drama Queens, which follows the day to day lives of some of our favourite soap stars, Jamelia explained that she wasn’t sad to have left the show.

When asked by her daughter how she felt about no longer going to work at the Liverpool-based soap, Jamelia said: ‘I know I should be like, “Oh, quite sad,” but I’m not at all.

‘I think working in that way has definitely made me appreciate how valuable my time is.’

She went on to reveal that, with a six and one-year-old at home, she feels grateful to be able to spend time with them.

‘Now that I’ve left Hollyoaks, it kind of feels like what people describe retirement as,’ she added. ‘And I’m kind of like, “Oh my gosh, I’m getting to do it at 43.”

‘I mean, it’s not going to last long, but I’m going to treat it like, “What do you want to do? Where do you want to go?”

‘I’ve just got all these decisions to make and I’m so excited!’
