Inside Jennifer Metfcalfe’s heartbreak after Dancing on Ice ‘curse’ | The Sun

HOLLYOAKS actress Jennifer Metcalf was seemingly one of the biggest victims of the suspected curse from Dancing On Ice.

But Jennifer's world fell apart when she revealed the Frenchman left her on Christmas Day in 2013.

He then went on to date his series eight Dancing On Ice partner Samia Ghadie, although the Coronation Street actress denied having anything to do with their break-up.

At the time, Jen told The Sun how breaking up with Sylvain  felt “like a death”.

However, proving she is the bigger person, whilst Samia and Sylvain are happily together with a kid Yvesshe, Jennifer still sent her support to him despite their bitter breakup.
