Hollyoaks real-life couple Amanda Clapham and Alfie Brown-Sykes have split after six years together, the actress' rep has confirmed.

The actors, who played Holly Cunningham and Jason Roscoe on the popular Channel 4 soap, parted ways last October, and the actor has since moved out of their shared home.

Whilst together, the couple lived in Liverpool with their French bulldog Frankie, who they got back in 2016.

The couple have rarely spoken about their real-life romance. But when their characters separated in the soap because Holly's affair with Jason's brother was exposed at their wedding, Amanda revealed it wasn't awkward for them.

"Not at all – I think just because it's so far from reality. It's so far from our own lives that it's just a good laugh," she said at the time.
