Hollyoaks legend Jen Metcalfe has been known for setting pulses racing since she first found fame as a page three model in the early 2000s.
Now an established actress who plays the role of Mercedes McQueen in the Channel 4 soap, the Yorkshire lass has proved she has only got hotter with age as her 559,000 followers would know.
But the brunette beauty has been on quite a rollercoaster when it comes to her love life throughout her time as an actress as a model in the public eye.
As she approaches her 38th birthday, the Daily Star has taken a look back at some of her sexiest snaps from over the years to celebrate her birthday bash.
Page 3 bombshell
Jen’s entertainment career first started out as a Page 3 model for The Sun where the mum-of-one flaunted her sexy side as she dressed up in barely-there lingerie and sexy leather jumpsuits.
Soon after she started modelling, her popularity soared as more and more readers rushed to buy the latest edition of the weekly newspaper to find the model strutting her stuff in her latest racy ensemble.
And as her career started to take off, the Bradford-native soon sought to broaden her career prospects as she slowly entered the acting world as a regular character on the Cheshire-based soap.
One of Jen’s legendary photoshoots from her youth was her jaw-dropping biker chic as she posed on a sexy red motorcycle in a pair of killer platform heels.
Thigh-high split dress
Speaking at the time, the raven-haired minx admitted she’ll always have nostalgia for her time on the lads’ mags circuit.
She told the Daily Star: “When I first started Hollyoaks, I felt like I had two dream jobs. Doing those shoots alongside a job I loved amazing.
“I was never tall and skinny enough to be a fashion model and I didn’t really want to get my kit off completely, so it was a happy medium.”
And the star has shown she still has it as she flaunted her incredible physique in a figure-hugging split dress which she paired with some thigh-high boots.
The actress let her long locks flow in relaxed loose waves for the wild night on the town which she paired with a bright red lipstick and a thin band of eyeliner.
Tiny string bikini
Fans love how versatile the star is, whether she’s glammed up for another racy photoshoot or rocking a more natural look on a family day trip, Jen always managed to make it look effortlessly chic.
The actress regularly treats her loyal legion of fans to stunning shots of her enjoying time with her four-year-old son Daye Colmic Lake who she shares with former Geordie Shore star Greg Lake.
Outside of her mummy duties and her lead role on set, Jen likes to get fit in the gym with her rigorous workout routine, and clearly the hours she has been putting in has paid off as she looked incredible in her tiny string bikini.
Red latex dress
Jen is no stranger to award ceremonies, and it’s fair to say the brunette belle stole the show when she won the Sexiest Female award at the 2015 Inside Soap Awards.
And the sizzling actress made sure to dress to impress as she donned a skin tight red latex bodycon dress which left little to the imagination as she rocked the plunging ensemble.
She styled the look with a full face of glamorous makeup for the star-studded event including a bright red lip to match her jaw-dropping dress.
The actress also pulled her chocolate brown tresses back into a tidy updo to draw all the attention to her impressive physique.
Cheeky crop tops
Jen broke the internet again with her throwback photoshoot as she donned a cheeky blue and white hooded crop top which she read Brother Dutton across the front.
The legendary Hollyoaks actress paired the cut off hoodie with a pair of saucy red and leopard print knickers which highlighted her gorgeous golden tan.
She accessorised the sexy look with a delicate body chain which peaked out from underneath her top and a matching gold chain bracelet to complete the outfit.
And the model certainly knew what she was doing as she flashed her pearly whites to the camera while she flipped her hair to one side.
Jennifer sizzled in a skimpy red and white striped bikini for a LighterLife campaign, showing off her toned stomach and washboard abs in the stunning snap.
After welcoming son Daye with ex Greg Lake, Jennifer became an ambassador for the brand and credited it with helping her stay in shape.
She said at the time: "I'm just slowly getting back into it with no pressure, but it was so convenient and it gives your body all of the nutrients it needs.
"But the last thing you're thinking about with a new baby is bingo wings or a roll over your pants, I couldn't care less, as long as I'm not severely over or underweight and I'm taking the right steps with eating the right things, that is good enough for me."
