Soap star Jennifer Metcalfe has been showing off her new svelte figure on the dance floor this week, after dropping a dress size thanks to liposuction. The 26-year-old actress recently attended a launch event at London's trendy Movida nightclub, where she was more than happy to give photographers and onlookers a view of her new curves, following cosmetic surgery.Jennifer, who plays Mercedes McQueen Fisher in Channel 4's hit soap Hollyoaks, told the Mail Online she was "completely amazed at the results" of her fat removal treatment. "I feel like I've dropped a dress size - and I have!" said Jennifer, who used to have a 26-inch waist and 32-inch hips, but dropped from a size 10 to 12 down to a size 6 to 8. The actress previously revealed her desire to lose some of the stubborn fat from her waist, particularly her rear. "My bum is certainly a big one," Jennifer said in an earlier interview. "Me and my bum have a love-hate relationship. There's nothing I can do about it! "It's quite a shelf, 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 dancefloor!" Jennifer is the latest Hollyoaks actress to improve her self-esteem with help from plastic surgery, after her co-star Carley Stenson boosted her confidence with a nose job.
