The Hollyoaks star doesn't want to meet her ex

Jennifer Metcalfe has reportedly decided not to attend tonight’s National Television Awards in case she bumps into ex-boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon.

Hollyoaks actress Jennifer, 29, has instead flown to Dubai in a bid to get over her split from the Dancing On Ice professional.

Sylvain, 32 – who broke up with Jennifer on Christmas Day – will arrive on the red carpet with his ice skating partner Samia Ghadie.

The pair were rumoured to have developed a romantic relationship after Samia, 30, ended things with her long-term partner Will Thorp.

They’ve strongly denied the claims but Jennifer still isn’t keen to see either of them.

Jen‘s a feisty girl and wouldn’t normally shy away from them,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘But she’s emotionally exhausted and wanted a break before returning to Hollyoaks.’
