Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap.
It looks like we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed the comparative glamour of Hollywoodoaks’ stars (especially compared to Coronation Street – Blanche Hunt, anyone?). If you believe the reports doing the rounds, none other than hip hop star Kanye West has taken a liking to Jennifer Metcalfe and wants her to appear in his next music video. Here’s the story: Hollyoaks babe Jennifer Metcalfe is reportedly being lined up to star in Kanye West’s new music video. The hip-hop star is said to have developed a huge crush on the soap actress – who plays Mercedes McQueen – after meeting her on a recent trip to the UK, according to the Daily Star.
Jennifer reportedly said: "I’m very flattered. I would just love to be in his next music video!" But the 24-year-old soap star’s boyfriend, Liverpool footballer Jermaine Pennant, 25, is said to have doubts about her flying to the US to work with Kanye. A source apparently said: "What fella wouldn’t be slightly nervous about Kanye West taking an interest in their girlfriend? "He’s a global superstar, seriously sexy and has women throwing themselves at his feet. It’s enough to make any man feel jealous."
So the question is should she or shouldn’t she appear in Kanye’s new video? Well it certainly wouldn’t do her career any harm, would it? I mean, take fellow wag Cheryl Cole, for example. She recently appeared in Will-I-Am’s video (member of the Black-Eyed Peas) and look at where she is now… an X Factor judge.
And how about Striclty Come Dancing star, Alesha Dixon? She once appeared in hip hop superstar Pharell’s video. She’s flying now (alright winning Striclty has helped a bit). Seen the video? No? Well watch it here….
… I bet it caused a few arguments between her and MC Harvey. Will Jennifer Metcalfe think seriously about taking Kanye West up on his offer? As for Jermaine Pennant, he should be grateful that it ain’t EastEnders’ Patrick Trueman that’s asked her to appear in a music video cos he’s like a love magnet at the moment…one look from Patrick and women fall under his spell! It’s true…just speak to Pat Butcher and Roxy Mitchell if you don’t believe me….
