Jennifer Metcalfe reunites with ex-boyfriend Chris Eagles as they enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping

Jennifer Metcalfe reunited with ex-boyfriend Chris Eagles on Sunday as they were spotted enjoying a spot of Christmas shopping together in Manchester, despite their recent split she was said to have ‘had enough’ following a string of rows.  

The Hollyoaks actress, 38, appeared in good spirits as she roamed around the shops with the former Oldham Athletic player, 36, further fueling speculation that they’ve rekindled their romance. 

During their outing, Chris was seen in the passenger seat following on from his fine and driving ban after being found drunk, shoeless and slumped over the wheel of his £70k car in March, before he was sentenced in September. 

A police breath test found he was almost three times the legal alcohol limit when he was found by officers before he was banned from driving for three months, fined £1250 and ordered to pay £275 in costs and surcharges.

During their apparent reunion on Sunday, Jennifer was seen wrapped up against the winter chill, with the star, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the Channel 4 soap, donning a cosy black coat and a bright pink beanie hat.

Footballer Chris meanwhile donned a tan coat and carried shopping bags.

The duo appeared very relaxed in each other’s company as they strolled around the shops before later heading off in the actress’ vehicle. 

MailOnline have contacted a representative of Jennifer comment.

Jennifer’s placement in the driving seat comes three months after Chris faced his legal woes following the police discovery at her house.  

Their cosy outing comes amid reports that they’ve given their relationship another go after they were spotted spending time together at Athelis spa in Warrington last week.

A source told The Sun: ‘I was stood right next to them at Athelis in Warrington this week and they were all over each other.

‘They were discussing Christmas plans and it was clear they are back together – they looked so happy!’

It comes after the duo called time on their relationship in September after a series of rows. 

A source told The Sun on Monday: ‘Jen and Chris haven’t had the easiest of romances and now it’s all off again. They’ve had a few rows recently and Jen has had enough.’

They added: ‘She’s putting herself first for once, rather than bending over backwards for Chris.

‘She doesn’t need Chris in her life and some of her friends are hoping it stays this way.’

MailOnline reached out to Jennifer’s representatives for comment at the time.

In June, the paper reported that the soap star and her partner were enjoying a night out with friends in the Algarve when an argument broke out, leading Jennifer to jet home alone.

Mother-of-one Jennifer announced in August last year that she had secretly split from her ex Greg Lake following an eight year romance.

Then the following February, the actress looked smitten as she stepped out with her new footballer beau Chris.

Jennifer took to Instagram last August to reveal that she and Greg – who she shares four-year-old son Daye with – had ended their relationship.

Seemingly another casualty of lockdown, Jennifer revealed the couple secretly broke up a couple of months earlier.

She wrote: ‘Greg and I decided to part ways amicably a couple months ago. We remain friends and we both will continue to happily co-parent Daye and would appreciate privacy during these times.

‘Thank you to everyone who has supported us before, during and after this.’

Chris – who shares two children with his ex-fiancée Danielle Mitchinson – was said to be in Jennifer’s support bubble during the coronavirus pandemic with the sports star reportedly spotted visiting her Manchester home.
