Danniella Westbrook's appearance in Hollyoaks has been axed.

The 41-year-old actress had been scheduled to reprise the role of Trudy Ryan this year, but according to today's The Sun, she will no longer be required on the Channel 4 soap.

But there seems to be a disagreement on what happened.

A rep from Channel 4 told the newspaper that "Danniella breached her contract and it was terminated last week" while a spokesperson for the actress said she chose to cancel the appearance.

The rep said: "Danniella left Hollyoaks due to the fact her ex was going to be staying in Liverpool at the same time. She feared for her safety."

Danniella - who is famous for her role in EastEnders - first appeared in Hollyoaks two years when her character Trudy was introduced as an old prison friend of Jacqui McQueen. Details about her proposed return storyline had not been revealed.

She has not spoken about the cancelled Hollyoaks role yet but did tweet last night: "Thank you all for your support guys, sending much love to you all."
