Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe will no longer be taking part in Tom Daley’s diving show Splash! it’s been confirmed.
The move comes a week after it was announced she’d split from her Dancing on Ice boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon. Sylvain (who met Jen on the show) is this series dancing with Samia Ghadie, who (oddly enough) recently split up with her boyfriend (and fellow Corrie star) Will Thorp.
Hmmmm… We’re saying nothing.
Unsurprisingly, this caused all kinds of rumours and now Jen’s decided to opt out of show.
ITV representatives haven’t confirmed why Jen left the show, but a source told The Sun Jen didn’t want to seem like a ‘copycat’ by appearing on a similar TV show in a skimpy outfit.
“She feared it looked like she was going head-to-head with Samia,” they claimed.
While Samia makes her first appearance on the ice on Sunday, Jen was due to take to the diving board tomorrow night alongside stars like Joey Essex, Caprice and Jade Ewen.
Speaking at the launch of DOI yesterday, Samia made us all scratch our heads by claiming she’s “single and just having fun skating.”
This one will run and run. The only silver lining is not having to see the lovely Jen in a bikini on Saturday night as we tuck into our dinner…
