Chris Eagles’ ex-fiancée Danielle Mitchinson has reportedly accused Jennifer Metcalfe ‘of breaking the girl code’ by dating him after their split, according to reports on Saturday.
The mother-of-two, 30, had been with the professional footballer, 35, for eight years before they parted ways during lockdown.
It was first reported Chris and Jennifer were dating in December as sources claimed the pair were part of each other’s support bubble, four months after she split from her long-term boyfriend Greg Lake.

A source close to Danielle spoke to The Sun, claiming she felt betrayed by her former friend, and said of Jennifer: ‘She hasn’t said sorry, never apologised, the exact opposite.
‘She has massively broken the girl code and she doesn’t even have any remorse about it.
‘Within a few months she went from being my new friend to being in my old house with my ex-fiance. It has definitely put me off trusting new people.’
MailOnline has contacted Jennifer and Chris’ representatives for comment.
