She told the Daily Star following her new contract: “I'm really happy. I've been in the show since I was 16 and I'm 22 now. I've kind of grown up here, which has been mental.”

Stephanie’s character was introduced in 2010 along with Sinead’s step mum Diane, dad Rob and brother Finn.

It is not known why her contract has been terminated so abruptly, but producers are now left with the task of writing Sinead out of the show.
