'Hollyoaks' actress Jennifer Metcalfe admits she loves how she looks now she has had liposuction on her thighs
Jennifer Metcalfe is insisting she loves how she looks despite having liposuction.
The 'Hollyoaks' star - who plays loud mouthed Mercedes McQueen in the British soap - revealed her new figure last week following the procedure which took her from a size 10 to a 6-8.
She said: "When I joined 'Hollyoaks' four years ago, I did worry about being in the 'Gorgeous and Groomed' category but as you settle into the industry and get older, you just don't care as much. I'm very confident with how I look now - whether I'm all dolled up or looking like s**t."
The 26-year-old soap star shelled out £2,000 for the liposuction which relies on ultrasound to break down fat around her thighs and bottom.
She described her bottom as being "quite a shelf," adding, "It's got meat, it wobbles and it sticks out. Me and my friends laugh about it all the time. It takes up nearly the whole dance floor!"
Jennifer was the centre of attention in 2008 when she lost a noticeable amount of weight - but now believes she has a healthy attitude to her figure.
She told Closer magazine: "Sometimes I look at pap shots and think: 'Oh, I've done alright there!' and other times I think: 'Jesus, what was I thinking?' Everyone has good and bad days. You just have to take it with a pinch of salt. I do watch what I eat, but I don't stress about it."
