'Hollyoaks' star Jen Metcalfe wonders if she will ever poo alone again as her toddler son sits on her lap in the loo
Jennifer Metcalfe took to social media to share a candid picture of her along with her son Daye in the toilet!
Jennifer Metcalfe wondered aloud whether she will ever be able to take a poop alone and in peace after she took to social media to post a picture of her son Daye who had climbed onto her lap while she was in the toilet doing her business.
The 36-year-old shared a candid photo of her toddler sitting on her lap as she sat on the toilet. Her onesie was seen on her knees as she held her child. She posted the picture on her Instagram and wrote alongside, "Will I ever poo alone again." Metcalfe's son was seen in a pair of striped trousers as well as a camouflage top.

Many of her fans and followers commented on the picture and shared that it could be a while before she has any free time alone in the bathroom. In response to her question, one fan wrote, "Nope, nine years later and I’m still not allowed." Another fan commented, "I was literally just having a conversation with my child about this just this morning. She is five and still feels the need to want around while I’m in there."

Yet another fan added, "This is how I have to go to wee every morning, no joke." Earlier this year, Metcalfe had revealed that her 'miracle' baby had almost died in a very traumatic birth. During an interview, Metcalfe revealed that her son Daye had "fought the odds" after his umbilical cord was knotted around his neck.
At the time, she told Mirror, "They say it happens to 1 in 100 babies in the womb and that they usually die. I am lucky to be a mum. You don’t really realize how precarious the labor can be and what can go wrong, so I thank my blessing that he is here and has just turned one."
Earlier this year, Metcalfe sparked a lot of concern from her fans when she appeared on the British Soap Awards. Metcalfe had dropped from a size 10 to a size six and shared, "I am probably the smallest I have ever been but I don’t care what anyone else thinks and if they feel I’ve gone too far with my weight loss or that I look unusually skinny."
"I vary from a size zero to a size ten, which I haven’t been for years. I wouldn’t say I am a standard size but I never have been. I don’t know what I weigh right now. I don’t have time to keep getting on the scales because I’m too busy carrying a 2nd man around. He hangs off me and that’s what keeps me trim. Daye is a very active baby, who is always on the move, but he had very bad colic for the first few months so I was totally preoccupied with that rather than what my body looked like," she added.
Metcalfe also opened up about her struggles with breastfeeding and shared, "I did breastfeed Daye for about a month and my boobs are not quite the same. I found it really difficult and I managed it for a month because it gives your baby a good start but I can see how it’s not for everyone and mums shouldn’t be made to feel guilty if they can’t."
