Heart-broken Hollyoaks babe, Jennifer Metcalfe, has issued the woman who wrecked her relationship, Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie, a warning about getting into a relationship with her ex, Dancing On Ice professional skater, Sylvain Longchambon, saying that he is still in love with her!
Jennifer’s world was torn apart over Christmas last year when Sylvain, who she had been with for two years after they had been paired together on the hit ITV skating talent show, Dancing On Ice, phoned her from France to end their relationship because he had developed feelings for his new celebrity DOI partner, Samia.
Since then Jennifer has ordered Sylvain to move his stuff out of the Liverpool home they shared together, which he did moving into a shared house with some of the other professional skaters on the show, which happened to be just up the road from the hotel that Samia is staying in.
Sources close to Samia, who plays crimper Maria Connor in Coronation Street and who ended her relationship with her former co-star, Will Thorpe earlier in December, and French international skater, Sylvain have insisted that the two are not a couple yet, but that they can definitely see one developing soon.
Many reports circulated about bitter revenge plans brewing by the Hollyoaks actress but Jennifer, who plays feisty Mercedes McQueen in the award-winning Channel 4 soap, has instead revealed to Now magazine how she feels about what has happened.
“I really hope it works out. She seems like a nice girl.
“If it was me I wouldn’t want to start a relationship with someone who was still in love with his partner.”
The actress went on to say how Sylvain, who had spent the two week Christmas break from the show with his family in France, had asked Jennifer not to tell anyone about the split, before revealing his feelings for Samia, despite him paying Jen a visit whilst she was starring in Panto in Whitley Bay telling he “adored her”!
She also revealed how Sylvain was actually disappointed to have been paired with Samia in the first place, as he has wanted to skate with Beth Tweddle!
“He was disappointed. He wanted Beth Tweddle. It was me who told him Samia seemed lovely and I remember telling him not to worry about the lifts because she is tiny and light.
“But he wasn’t in any way excited – he was downbeat about Samia.”
On the subject of Samia, Jen, who it was revealed earlier this week was contemplating swapping Hollyoaks for Hollywood in a bid to escape the doom and gloom of recent headlines, continued: “I don’t judge her. People are capable of doing anything.”
