- Do you know Jennifer’s mystery companion? Email email@example.com
Jennifer Metcalfe looked stylish on Sunday as she went for a stroll with a mystery man in Cheshire.
The Hollyoaks actress, 40, split from her ex Greg Lake in 2020, after eight years together. The couple share six-year-old son, Daye.
But Jennifer appeared open to love again as she was spotted leaving a cafe with a tall and handsome companion.
The redhead was seen laughing and joking with the man and looked stunning in a long black winter coat with a tie waist, adding chunky black boots.
Jennifer has played the role of Mercedes McQueen on the Channel 4 soap since 2006 and is one of Hollyoaks’ most iconic figures.

Last year Jennifer said she is ‘totally single’ after breaking up with Oldham Athletic player Chris Eagles, 37.
Revealing that she’d love to have more children, Jennifer told The Sun: ‘As long as my parts are still working, I wouldn’t rule it out at 50.
‘I’ve actually always been very keen on adoption and I’d do that as a single parent.’
Daye lives with Jennifer near Manchester, but sees his dad, who is based in Newcastle, every other weekend and during school holidays.
Speaking of her romantic relationship with Greg ending, the soap star insisted she never wants them to feel ‘split up,’ because of their son.
She explained: ‘There was no bad energy [at the end] and I don’t even like using the phrase ‘split up’. We’ll never be split, we’re a family and always will be.
‘I never want us to feel split, for Daye, and I’ll do everything I can to make sure of that. It was a case of: ‘This is us now and how do we make this gear change and not have Daye feel it?’.’
Jennifer confirmed on Instagram back in 2020 that the couple had secretly broken up a couple of months earlier.

Could Jennifer be open to love again after her split from Greg in 2020?

She wrote: ‘Greg and I decided to part ways amicably a couple months ago.
‘We remain friends and we both will continue to happily co parent Daye and would appreciate privacy during these times.
‘Thank you to everyone who has supported us before, during and after this.’
The soap star then went on to have a brief romance with footballer Chris but they split in 2021.
In June, the paper reported that the soap star and her partner were enjoying a night out with friends in the Algarve when an argument broke out, leading Jennifer to jet home alone.
A source told The Sun at the time: ‘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.’
