Inside Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe's incredible home after it's revealed she's dating Chris Eagles

HOLLYOAKS star Jennifer Metcalfe has taken to social media to show off her incredible family home.

The 37-year-old actress, who plays Mercedes McQueen on the popular Channel 4 soap, shares her stunning Greater Manchester pad with son Daye, three – yet the pair may have a new visitor after The Sun exclusively confirmed she is dating footballer Chris Eagles.

The soap star, who announced her split from boyfriend Greg Lake earlier this year, has shared numerous pictures of her amazing home on Instagram.

And she's given her Altrincham pad a Christmassy make-over to ensure a cheery festive season no matter her relationship status.

Jen took to her account to share a snap of her winter "smooch" with her only son in front of the glistening, bauble-studded tree.

The stunning fir was adorned with decorations of different sized and colours, with a host of wrapped presents gathered underneath.

The big bauble decorations were replicated on the mantlepiece of her living room, with the glittering decorations adding a pop of colour to her black fireplace.

The actress wrote in the caption: "Having a good ol smooch with my one and only enjoying the Christmassy setting @lmalison2011 and her amazin team created… ❤️ Thank u for making our home feel this gorgeous xxx"

Although Jen and Chris haven't gone Instagram official, her lounge is the perfect space for hosting once Altrincham is out of its tier three classification.

Meanwhile, Jen recently used her driveway as a posing spot for a selfie.

Standing under a brolly shielding her from the northern rain, her red-brick home with white windowsills can be seen behind her.

Back inside, her kitchen is the perfect space for Jen to relax after a busy day of filming.

The room boasts a number of chic features, including a royal blue velvet sofa, pink bar stools and a giant wall clock.

There's also an exposed brick wall, which gives the space an urban vibe.

Jen's bedroom is just as chic, with grey fitted wardrobes and an old-fashioned fireplace.

Other decorative touches include a flowery rug, black door knobs and a intricate glass chandelier.

Meanwhile, the actress has opted for a dinosaur theme in Daye's room.

The fun space is home to a canopy bed and a printed star carpet.

Showing off the neutral toned room on Instagram, Jen gushed: "We finally found a bed that suits Daye perfectly.

"This is the lovely Wig Wam Xbed from @bensonsforbed and he loves it! Let the fun n games commence."

Over the weekend, the star also treated fans to a series of shots of her Christmas decorations – complete with a huge tree and a green garland perfectly positioned upon the fireplace.

Meanwhile, the garden boasts astro turf and an array of planted, with two black sun loungers.

Jen previously revealed she split with former Geordie Shore star Greg – who she shares son Daye with – secretly during lockdown after eight years together.

Announcing the split, 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."
