"Following the recent shocking storyline where her 12-year-old daughter Lily is pregnant, Stacey’s aware she’ll have another mouth to feed so gets to work," the source told The Sun.

"In the cost of living crisis, Only Fans has seen a boom in a similar kind of creator - mums and dads just trying to care for their families."

OnlyFans has become a popular platform in recent years where some of the website's biggest stars earn millions each year.

The source added that the story will be "handled sensitively," and that "Lacey is a safe pair of hands on every kind of storyline."

It's not the first time OnlyFans has been mentioned in a storyline on the soap, as Freddie Slater also has an account on the platform.

Elsewhere, Hollyoaks star Sarah Jayne Dunn was axed from the show after refusing to remove racy photos from her real-life OnlyFans account.
