CELEBRITIES with a side hustle on OnlyFans will not be welcome on ITV, according to reports.
Network bosses want to allegedly 'blacklist' any celebrities who sell racy snaps and videos on the adult content platform.
OnlyFans allowed both professional and amateur adult entertainers struggling financially during the Covid-19 pandemic to make some money.
The platform went from a niche site to a huge movement with millions of users.
Last year, Bella Thorne apologized to sex workers on OnlyFans after she claimed she earned a staggering $2million during her first week on the site – prompting them to crack down on the rules.
Closer to home stars such as Kerry Katona, Lauren Goodger, Stephen Bear, Kieran Hayler, Megan Barton Hanson and Danielle Lloyd have turned to the platform to help boost their bank accounts.
But ITV could soon prevent them from appearing on the network over a planned crackdown on casting talent with an OnlyFans account.
"ITV are now against talent with pay-per-view fans sites such as OnlyFans when looking at stars being involved in new shows," a source told Daily Star.
"The decision isn't aligned to any one show in particular but across the board.
"It's thought that such explicit work isn't compatible with their audience."
The sourced added: "To be fair to ITV it's not just them.
"Channels in general are cracking down – it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say it can be a deal-breaker for some producers."
ITV declined to comment when approached by The Sun.
Kerry Katona launched her saucy account on the subscription site last year to help pay her bills.
The former Atomic Kitten singer, 40, explained she launched her account during the UK's first lockdown last March because she was struggling to pay her rent.
"Money! In the first lockdown, we were struggling to pay the rent," she told the publication.
Commenting on the racy content, Kerry insisted she "doesn't do anything explicit" on the site.
