Stephanie Davis 'never been happier' following Hollyoaks exit

Stephanie Davis has "never been happier".

Fans of Channel 4 soap 'Hollyoaks' saw the 22-year-old actress bow out as feisty Sinead O'Connor on last night's (18.09.15) episode but in a series of tweets since her exit, the star has praised her time on the show, describing it as a "journey".

She wrote: "Not watched but hope u all enjoyed my last episode! Bye Sinead, it's been a journey! On to the futureeeeee. never been happier! #exciting

"Sat smiling with my baby @SamReece so happy, content and excited (sic)"

Meanwhile, Stephanie recently claimed it was her "choice" to leave the soap.

She shared: "It was ultimately my choice to leave! I just walked and then the producers told me if I didn't come back they'd have no option but to terminate my contract, but that it was my choice.

"I regret the way it ended - I probably should've gone about it in a better way, but I was desperate for a break."

However, a spokesperson for the actress clarified that it came about following warnings about her attendance.

They 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."
