Hollyoaks beauty Jennifer Metcalfe, who welcomed her first child with Greg Lake in June last year, let her hair down at the British Soap Awards on Saturday – and was spotted looking a little worse for wear in the taxi home.
The 35-year-old actress looked the epitome of elegance as she attended the awards ceremony, flaunting her sensational post-baby body in a delightful spotted peach dress.
But following the lavish ceremony, the gorgeous starlet looked a little bleary eyed as she headed home – barely able to keep her eyes open following the glitzy event.
The actress took maternity leave from the Channel 4 soap more than 10 months ago, before giving birth to son Daye.
While she’s cherished every second spent with partner Greg and their first tot Jen, who plays fiery Mercedes McQueen, is itching to get back on-set.
Talking of her long-awaited soap comeback she told The Daily Star: “I am loving it and have loved these moments with Daye but I am looking forward to getting back to work in June.

“It’s very social when I am working and I have missed the cast and team at Hollyoaks while I’ve been off.”
Jennifer added: “I’ve been catching up on all the storylines and, as always, Hollyoaks has delivered some great ones.”
Meanwhile the 35 year old said she had re-gained her stunning figure with the help of diet regime, Lighter Life Fast.
She dropped three dress sizes and Jennifer and previously told The Sun Online: “I’m proud of my body and what I’ve achieved.
“I don’t weigh myself, but I’m back in the clothes I used to wear before I was pregnant. I went from a size 10 to around a size 6.”
Yet with a few weeks to go before a life of scripts and cameras kick in, she revealed a sun-soaked break is on the cards.
Jen added: “We will definitely get a holiday booked before I go back to Hollyoaks in June.”
