Skins star Megan Prescott turned to OnlyFans during the pandemic

Megan Prescott has told how she turned to OnlyFans and stripping after finding fame on cult Channel 4 hit Skins during her teenage years.

Before joining OnlyFans, Megan worked at strip clubs but admitted she feared being recognised and worried that it would affect her getting jobs in the acting world.

Megan, who played Katie Fitch in the British teen comedy-drama, was encouraged to start a page on the raunchy site due to her following of fans from Skins.

Megan told The Sun: ‘I thought I may as well try and it went very well. I only do what I’m comfortable with and log on when I want to because it takes a lot out of you.’

She explained that it isn’t as ’emotionally draining’ as working as a stripper because the hours are more regular and you don’t have to bargain over prices.

On the flip side, Megan said that people in real life are ‘much kinder’, while she has some incel (involuntary celibate) followers who right ‘horrendous things’.

Megan said she ignores them and uses the material to fuel her writing, while recognising she is ‘prividged’ in the sex industry because of her TV background.

The screen star was introduced to stripping aged 22, two years after appearing on Skins, by her friend Heaven, who co-hosts the podcast Strippers In The Attic.

Megan, who said that already stripping on screen ‘broke down barriers’ while auditioning for the club, said: ‘Before my first strip club audition, I sat in a pub and had two shots of tequila. I don’t really drink, but I felt it was necessary because I was a bit nervous.

‘But once you’ve danced naked your nerves go away very quickly and then it becomes quite fun – society makes it seem shameful, but it’s really not.’

Megan admitted she ‘easily’ made more money in the clubs – including Bianca Gascoigne’s Gaslight Of St James’s – than she did at her pub job and found it more empowering.  

However she did fear her new job being exposed, and said: ‘I was terrified of something coming out, but at the time I wasn’t getting a lot of acting work and had no agent.’

Megan – who has also competed as a bodybuilder – said she kept her job hidden for years due to the ‘stigma’ which surrounds the sex industry, which she said could have been ‘career-ruining’. 

She said that on occassion people did recognise her, including one ‘drunk’ girl who promised Megan she would remain tight-lipped about her identity. 

Megan revealed she now thinks the judgement is ‘ridiculous’ because times have changed and women shouldn’t be judged for being naked.

‘It’s ridiculous, it’s not the Middle Ages, surely we’re past the time of judging women for showing their cleavage and being naked is normal.’
