Jennifer Metcalfe has said she doesn’t believe that ‘happy endings exist’ seven months on from her split from ex Greg Lake.
The Hollyoaks actress, 37, said on a podcast that ‘no one settles’ and that people always end up thinking ‘what next’ in cryptic comments.
Jennifer announced her relationship with Geordie Shore star Greg was over last August and has been dating her new footballer beau Chris Eagles since December.

According to The Sun, speaking on the Soap From The Box podcast, Jennifer said: ‘Does a happy ending exist? It doesn’t, and this is me talking.
‘You get everything you ever wanted, you get your car, your house, your job, the dream and then it’s like, ‘OK, what now?’.
‘No one settles. Everyone has always got a little, ‘what next?’, that’s the zest of life in my opinion. Everyone has the same emotions.
‘You want to be happy, you want to experience love, whatever that looks like.’

Since the split, Jennifer has been linked to Oldham Athletic player Chris Eagles, 35, with the pair starting dating last December.

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 contacted Jennifer and Chris’ representatives for comment at the time.
Chris and Jennifer were first seen together in January with sources claiming that the actress was ‘smitten’ with him.
Chris is said to be in Jennifer’s support bubble during the coronavirus pandemic with the sports star reportedly spotted visiting her Manchester home.

According to the publication, Jennifer has reportedly known Chris since she became friends with Danielle last year.
The source added: ‘She was mates with Jen, but it has put a strain on their friendship. Danielle was with Chris for so long but just wants things to move forward. They still share custody of their kids.’
Chris and Danielle are said to have split in October after lockdown ‘highlighted that the relationship wasn’t working’. They share two children.
