The pair have great chemistry

Letting the sequins go to her head, Jennifer Metcalfe has already been linked romantically to her French skating partner Sylvain Longchambon, 30.

Jen, 28, who plays fiery Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks, has tried to keep the romance secret but show mentors and Christopher Dean were reportedly left ‘open-mouthed’ by the pair’s sizzling chemistry in rehearsals.

Jen’s keen for the focus to be on her skating, not her love life but says of her hunky partner: ‘He’s very strong. I really trust him and I’ll do anything for him. Sylvain’s the best.’

And when he recently went home to France for Christmas, Jen Tweeted to a pal that she was ‘missing a certain someone’.

Gorgeous Jennifer might have her pick of men but when it comes to her body she has the same hang-ups as the rest of us.

‘One of the reasons I’m doing this is to get a fit body but it’s just not happening,’ she says.

‘Because I’ve been burning off so many calories, I’m eating everything in sight. I’ve put on half a stone!’

Never mind, Jen, we’re sure Sylvain is more than happy with your vital statistics.
