Newly single Jennifer Metcalfe steps out in a stylish ensemble as she enjoys lunch date with pals… after confirming split from Greg Lake

She confirmed back in August that her eight-year relationship with Greg Lake, with whom she shares a son, had quietly come to an end months earlier.

And Jennifer Metcalfe was seen continuing to enjoy the company and support of her friends on Sunday, as she stepped out for lunch in Manchester city centre.

The former Hollyoaks actress, 37, looked typically stylish as she stepped out for the meal in an oatmeal crop sweater, which she teamed with tight black trousers.

Standing tall in a pair of knee-high black suede boots, the screen star, best known for her role Mercedes McQueen in the long-running soap, carried a jacket and bag. 

Wearing her chestnut brown locks in a straight sleek blowout, the actress highlighted her good looks with a rich palette of makeup.

The actress, who arrived solo by taxi, was seen laughing and chatting with her trio of friends as they boarded a car and headed off for drinks at a nearby bar.

Jennifer’s outing comes six weeks after she revealed her relationship with former Geordie Shore star Greg, with whom she raises son Daye, three, quietly ended during lockdown. 

She wrote on Instagram: ‘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.’

Jennifer has been regularly sharing pictures of herself with Greg and Daye on her Instagram, with the last family picture appearing on July 12.

It seems that the couple had already split at this point, but they remain close.

In 2018, Jennifer said she thought Greg had proposed to her following their long romance, but she wasn’t having any of it anyway.

She told ITV’s Loose Women at the time: ‘I thought Greg had proposed to me on my birthday. He got a ring out, I’d just got back from work.

‘I was too tired for it. I said “can we please do this another time, I’m tired”. It was just a ring ‘for us’ though, not an engagement one.’

But the year before, Jennifer told Fabulous magazine thar marriage was very much in their plans.

She said: ‘We’ll probably do it like a party and be like: “Let’s get married next month and we’ll text our friends”. There will be no ring or anything.’
