Jorgie, who plays Theresa McQueen, will leave the soap towards the end of the year in order to try her chances in LA.

According to The Mirror, Jorgie has already been meeting important people in the US.

A source tells the newspaper: "Jorgie has been in LA wooing acting agents and managers and hopes to start landing film roles soon.

"She can sing and dance too so has as lot to offer."

It's the second time Jorgie has quit the soap.

She previously left the show in December 2013 so she could focus on the All-Star series of ITV's Dancing On Ice, but was unfortunately voted out in the first week.

Her return as Theresa was announced just four months later.

A Hollyoaks spokesperson did not confirm Jorgie was leaving, but told Digital Spy: "Theresa McQueen is currently embroiled in exciting storylines well into next year. Theresa and her aunt Myra do come and go from Hollyoaks village but we do not comment on individual artistes' contracts."

The news comes in the same week that Hollyoaks sacked Stephanie Davis.

A spokeswoman said: "Stephanie's contract was terminated following warnings for lateness, attendance and after a final incident in which she turned up to set unfit to work because of alcohol consumption."
