Jennifer Metcalfe has found love again following her split, reports say.
The Hollyoaks actress, 38, separated from Geordie Shore star Greg Lake over the summer.
Now it’s claimed she’s been dating former Manchester United star Chris Eagles.
A source told The Sun that the pair are “smitten” with each other, and have only recently started dating after knowing each other for a long time.
They added that they’re in the “early stages” of their romance.
Chris is said to have been through a split himself this year, after he and ex-fiancée Danielle Mitchinson reportedly went their separate ways after eight years together.
The footie ace made 17 appearances for Man United and has also played at Bolton, Burnley, and had done at Oldham Athletic until January.
The Mirror has reached out to reps for Jennifer, and a rep declined comment to The Sun.
In August Jennifer took to Instagram to announce her split from Greg.
She penned: “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.”
Jennifer, who plays Mercedes McQueen on Hollyoaks, and reality star Greg started dating in 2012, and they welcomed “miracle baby” Daye in 2017.
And opening up about the dramatic birth on Lorraine, she shared: “As far as labour was concerned I quite enjoyed it. It was a bit of a challenge. These midwives came in that were absolutely incredible, they came in as his heart rate dropped. I think the contractions came a little bit too soon and were quite long.
“His heart rate dropped and these midwives came in and were holding my hands and made me feel like superwoman. They said, ‘come on, you’re the best pusher in the North East’. Even if there was something wrong I wouldn’t have known about it.
“When he came out, our little gorgeous boy, his cord was in a knot, and in quite a tight knot as well. They say it happens to in one in 100 babies.
“It doesn’t end very nice, it can end in a stillbirth. It was quite a tight knot and it stops oxygen and food getting to him. But our little man defied the odds and here he is.”
