Jennifer Metcalfe struggling with nausea during first pregnancy

Jennifer Metcalfe and partner Greg Lake are both excited and nervous about the impending arrival of their first child.

Jennifer Metcalfe is finding it hard to film Hollyoaks as her pregnancy is causing her to feel very nauseous.

Jennifer and boyfriend Greg Lake announced their happy news last month (Feb17), with the Bradford-born actress showing off her bump for an exclusive spread in OK! Magazine.

The star, famous for playing feisty Mercedes McQueen in the soap, only has three months left to go before she becomes a mum, and admits work can be tough at times.

"I can't actually eat enough to get that big, as I just feel nauseous," she told WENN Cover Media at Ellie Goulding's recent shoe launch with Deichmann in London. "I've had no cravings, the opposite - food aversion.

"I'm not being sick, I just feel nauseous all day. It is hard to film but I'm not one for moaning or dwelling and it will be over in a few months."

Jennifer will start her maternity leave in two months, during which time she's also planning to move in with Greg. The 34-year-old is currently based in Liverpool, while original Geordie Shore star Greg lives in his native Newcastle.

While the pair can't wait to meet their new arrival, the actress also admits they're starting to get nervous too.

"It's both (exciting and nerve-racking) - and the rest!" she laughed. "We're really excited more than anything. Nerve-racking but... we're bringing a life into the world. Of course it's going to be nerve-racking!"
