Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe clearly had a great birthday if this new picture is anything to go by!

Jennifer, who plays Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks, jetted to the south of France for a spot of sunshine and wine to mark her 31st birthday last week.

But now back in the UK, Jennifer has got a touch of the holiday blues!

Confirming the news on Twitter, she told her fans that she was sad to wave goodbye but that new members of the McQueens would be arriving in Hollyoaks Village soon!

"Mercedes is leaving the village, she needs to give her high heels a rest - my feet are knackered," she said. "Lookin' forward to welcoming the new McQeens (they're ace) lots of love and keep watching."

Jennifer's shock announcement came two days after co-star Gemma Merna - Carmel McQueen - also confirmed her departure from Hollyoaks.
