THERE goes the day job - Love/Hate star Susan Loughnane has been given the bullet from her retail job.
Despite starring in RTE's most successful drama, the flame-haired actress continued to work behind the tills at US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch in London.
But this week her hectic acting schedule resulted in her getting fired from the shop.
"Finally got fired from Abercrombie & Fitch for not doing a shift in way too long," she revealed on Twitter.
"Bye bye back up plan!"
Susan, who plays drug addict and prostitute Debbie in the gangland series, had been working at the store for several months and admitted she frequently had to give away shifts to take acting gigs.
"I keep giving away the shifts. Every two months or so I take a shift and go in there. Occasionally people recognise me," she said earlier this year.
"But it's awful, you have to wear such tiny clothes. I just keep the job in case."
But the 27-year-old actress shouldn't stress about her dismissal. She's one in-demand ingénue.
She's currently filming for popular UK soap Hollyoaks. Susan plays the part of young, fun-loving Irish mum Chloe in the series and will be filming up until the end of November.
"She's a really fun character, it's something different for me," explained the Malahide native.
"It's definitely a challenge, but I love a challenge."
Award-winning series Love/Hate will return to TV screens on October 6. Robert Sheehan may be out of the frame but there is plenty of new talent and eye candy to replace him.
Theatre maker and Renaissance man Aaron Heffernan will play a central role.
And Brian F O'Byrne, who has already picked up a prestigious Tony award, has been drafted in to play Detective Inspector Mick Moynihan.
He heads up the investigative team attempting to smash the gang led by kingpin Nidge.
"Think of it like Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty, Detective Moynihan really is Nidge's arch nemesis," writer Stuart Carolan revealed.
