Jennifer Metcalfe has said that seven months after her divorce from ex Greg Lake, she doesn’t believe there are ‘happy endings’.

The Hollyoaks actress, 37, admitted that during a new candid interview ‘no one settles down’ and that people in the end always think ‘what now’.

Mother-of-one Jennifer announced in August that she was secretly separated from former Geordie Shore star Greg after an eight-year romance.

In February, the actress looked smitten when she got off with her new footballer Chris Eagles after they first connected in December.

According to The sun, speaking on the Soap From The Box podcast, Jennifer said, ‘Is there a happy ending? It doesn’t, and this is what I’m talking about.

‘You get everything you ever wanted, your car, your house, your job, the dream and then it’s like,’ OK, now what? ‘

‘Nobody is satisfied. Everyone always has a little “what now?”, Which is the zest for life in my opinion. Everyone has the same emotions.

“You want to be happy, you want to experience love, whatever it looks like.”

Jennifer took to Instagram in August to reveal that she and Greg – with whom she shares three-year-old son Daye – had sadly split up after eight years together.

Seemingly another lockdown victim, Jennifer revealed that the couple had secretly split up a few months earlier.

She wrote: ‘Greg and I decided a few months ago to part ways amicably. We remain friends and we will both remain happy as co-parent Daye and would appreciate privacy during these times.

Since the split, Jennifer has been spotted with Oldham Athletic player Chris Eagles, 35, with the pair first linked in December.

But Chris’ ex-fiancé Danielle has since allegedly accused Jennifer of “ breaking the girl’s code. ”

The mother of two, 30, was with the professional footballer for eight years before breaking up during lockdown.

A source close to Danielle spoke to The sun, claiming that she felt betrayed by her former boyfriend, saying of Jennifer: “ She didn’t say sorry, never apologized, quite the opposite.

‘She broke the girls’ code en masse and she doesn’t even regret it.

Within a few months, she moved from my new girlfriend to my old house with my ex-fiancé. It has definitely kept me from trusting new people. ‘

MailOnline contacted representatives for Jennifer and Chris at the time for comment.

Chris and Jennifer were first seen together in January with sources claiming the actress was ‘smitten’ with him.

Chris is said to be in Jennifer’s support bubble during the coronavirus pandemic with the sports star who was reportedly spotted visiting her Manchester home.

The source added: ‘She was a buddy with Jen, but it strained their friendship. Danielle was with Chris for so long, but just wants things to move forward. They still share custody of their children. ‘

Chris and Danielle are said to have split up in October after “stressing that the relationship was not working.” They share two children.
