Jorgie Porter has quit Hollyoaks to pursue a career in Hollywood.
The soap star is all set to leave the Channel 4 TV drama after seven years of playing the role of Theresa McQueen.
The blonde actress aged 27 will leave the show towards the end of the year. The news of her departure came as a shock after it was revealed that her co-star from the Hollyoaks Stephanie Davis has been sacked from the hit series. The 22-year-old party girl, who played the role of Sinead O’Conner on the show for six years, was axed from the show after she turned up drunk on the set for work.
Davis who had signed a new contract just four months before her termination was part of the show since she was 16. Her spokesperson has announced that her contract has been terminated with immediate effect following warnings for lateness, attendance and after a final incident of her turning up totally drunk.
Porter, who appeared on Dancing On Ice, decided to take the next step and plunge into the deep ocean of Hollywood, following the footsteps of several other British soap stars who have achieved success there.
A source told MailOnline: 'Jorgie is taking an extended break again. She often gets itchy feet and loves being in LA.'
Another source revealed: "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 is not the first time that the blonde beauty has decided to leave the show. She left Hollyoaks in October 2013 to participate in the ITV’s Reality TV show Dancing On Ice with an announcement that she would be returning someday to the show. After being eliminated on the first week of the contest, she made her comeback as a heavily pregnant prison inmate.
The setting of her exit from Hollyoaks is still unknown as she prepares to make it big in the US movie industry.
The 5.2 ft. tall actress recently took a trip to LA and is hoping to achieve the height of success in Hollywood.
But another on-set insider said that Jorgie's exit is being treated as just another break, with the door left open for her to return at a later date.
As the news of her leaving is creating buzz all over the media, hot pictures of her has recently surfaced on internet as the actress was seen surfing the waves in Malibu. The photographs of the blonde babe made it to the social media sites like Instagram and Twitter. She was seen flaunting her beach body in a high-waisted blue bikini. Her bikini clad body looked absolutely stunning as she hit the waves with her surfboard.
The Born To Shine fame who has been featured in cover of FHM’s August 2013, secured the 50th spot on the list of the FHM’s sexiest woman. She has also been featured as a calendar girl.
Porter dated her co-star and former boyfriend James Athertons but they spilt in 2014. Now, she is currently single and really enjoying her life right now.
We all hope that Porter garners the same success in Hollywood as she did in Hollyoaks.
