Jennifer Metcalfe feels sorry for Samia
The Hollyoaks star was heartbroken when her Dancing On Ice boyfriend told her on Christmas Day he’d developed feelings for his celeb dance partner Samia.
However, Jen, 29, says instead of feeling angry, she actually feels sorry for Samia, 30.
In an exclusive interview, Jen, who dated Sylvain, 32, for two years, tells Now:
‘I really hope it works out. She seems like a nice girl.
‘I have good friends who’ve done bad things and it doesn’t change the fact that they’re still nice people.
‘If it was me I wouldn’t want to start a relationship with someone who was still in love with his partner.
‘When Sylvain was with me, there was no one else.
‘Even after he and Samia had a conversation about having feelings for each other he came up to stay with me in Whitley Bay [where Jen’s been starring in panto] and he was just as loving as he always was.
‘He used to touch every part of my face and tell me how he loved my nose, eyes and eyebrows more than anything else in the world.
‘He told me he adored me. We went for walks on the beach, he sat through my first night of panto looking so proud and happy for me and we were still together completely as a couple.
‘I know I’m his type. He loves women with curves – he loved my body.
‘ I won’t make any comparisons between my body and Samia’s but I know exactly what he loves.’
