Hollyoaks’ Jennifer Metcalfe beams as she carries son to launch of co-star’s music career

Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe beamed as she carried her four-year-old son Daye down the street on the way to the launch of Bethannie Hare's singing career at Foodwell, Manchester.

The 38-year-old TV star was glowing as she held her son, who she shares with Geordie Shore ex Greg Lake, in her arms.

Daye looked just as happy as his mum, grinning in a shearling jacket and jeans.

And Jennifer, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the soap, looked stylish in a khaki coat, baggy black jeans, Converse, and natural-look makeup.

Jennifer and Greg split in 2020 after eight years together.

The star made headlines for her love life again recently, following her split with former professional footballer Chris Eagles.

A source told The Sun following the break-up: "Jen and Chris haven't had the easiest of romances and now it's all off again.

"They've had a few rows recently and Jen has had enough."

The source added: "She's putting herself first for once, rather than bending over backwards for Chris."

The pair's relationship was consistently rocky, with Jennifer having reportedly flown home alone from a holiday in Portugal with Chris – who she was first linked to in December – in June after an argument.

However the new snaps prove she is thriving in her new single life as she went to support her co-star Bethannie, who joined the cast of Hollyoaks in 2020 as Cher McQueen.

Fellow co-star Chelsee Healey also showed her support.

Bethannie, 22, launched her acting career with the major role, which has seen her explore a number of important themes including mental illness, and is now hoping to capture hearts with her music career.

She is also the founder of charity Bethany's Smile, which she started at the age of just 12, initially with the aim of raising money for Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa, Yorkshire.

Having raised £10,000 with its first major event, Bethannie decided to set up her own charity, which is described on its website as a ‘Hospice with no walls’.
