Jennifer Metcalfe has announced her split from former Geordie Shore star Greg Lake.

The 36 year old took to Twitter to reveal the sad news three years after the pair welcomed their son Daye.

Hollyoaks star Jennifer took wrote to her 363,000 followers: "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."

Jennifer and Greg had been together for almost eight years after meeting in 2012 after Greg, 35, quit the MTV reality show after just one series.

The pair welcomed their son in 2017, with Mercedes McQueen actress Jennifer describing him as their "miracle baby" at the time.

Speaking on Lorraine, she said: "As far as labour was concerned I quiet enjoyed it. It was a bit of a challenge. These midwives came in that were absolutely incredible came in as his heart rate dropped. I think the contractions came a little bit too son and were quite long.

"His heart rate dropped and these midwives came in and were holding my hands and made me feel like superwoman.

"They said 'come on you're the best pusher in the north east'. Even if there was something wrong I wouldn’t have known about it.

"When he came out our little gorgeous boy his cord was in a knot, and in quite a tight knot as well.

"They say it happens in one in 100 babies. It doesn't end very nice, it can end in a still birth.

"It was quite a tight knot and it stops oxygen and food getting to him. But our little man defied the odds and here he is."

Jennifer's experience with motherhood helped her assist her co-star Nadine Mulkerrin after she welcomed her son, Reggie, last October.

Nadine revealed she had turned to Jennifer in a social media post, sharing a screen grab of their WhatsApp conversation.

She wrote in the message: "Day 1 – smug m****rf****r this is world most chilled well behaved silent sleepy content baby.

"Day 2 Will this ever end. Why won't you go back in your f*****g bed. I've tried tricking him like 18 times just wants to lie on my nipple in his throat sleeping. Cheers bud."
