Why We Love Jennifer Metcalfe
Let’s be honest now: the best thing about Hollyoaks isn’t the nuanced, multi-layered moral conundrums that the characters often find themselves embroiled in; it’s all the fit women. Looking at the concentration of comely ladies on display, the writers would clearly have us believe that this particular fictional corner of Chester is some kind of spiritual mecca for pneumatic, sociopathic hotties with a passion for tight-fitting T-shirts.
And the undisputed queen of Hollyoaks stable of super-fitties is Jennifer Metcalfe, whose character Mercedes McQueen is a “feisty” (read: “absolutely terrifying but undeniably hot”) girl who’s had her fair share of marriages, infidelities, catfights and mesmerising bikini car-wash scenes.
For her contributions to the Hollyoaks mythos, Jen has been honoured with Sexiest Female gongs at the British Soap Awards and the Inside Soap Awards, and has developed an extremely keen and loyal following (just check out how many Facebook groups she has). But despite her good looks, Jen isn’t too fussy when it comes to boyfriends – she likes them “big, hairy, raw and smelly”. If you’re an overweight tramp with anger issues, you may just have hit the jackpot.
