Her shapely figure comes less than a year after she admitted undergoing a £2,000 vaser liposuction procedure to remove excess fat from her upper thigh and bottom area.
Following the procedure, Jennifer dropped from a dress size of 10 to 12 around her hips to a size six to eight.
And, speaking recently, the 27-year-old insisted she is proud of her decision to undergo the procedure, and is now happy with her curves.
She said: 'I think surgery is a really personal decision that only you can make.

'If there's something on your body you really don't like, it doesn't matter if your mother doesn't see it or your boyfriend doesn't see it - it's what you feel comfortable with.'
Meanwhile, joining Metcalfe in Ibiza was her Dancing On Ice partner boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon, 30, the couple lay side-by-side on the warm sand.
And despite the sunny weather when the photos were taken, Metcalfe complained the weather had been unusually bad for a majority of her stay on the island.
So when the weather was bad, she's been hitting the hotel gym to train for an upcoming 10k run.
She Tweeted: 'Grey skies and p**sing it down so just did 75mins on treadmill!!
'Sunshine...? Ya kiddin??? Its awful.'
But Metcalfe did manage a wild night out with her Hollyoaks co-stars, describing it as 'carnage'.
Despite the fun she was having, there was plenty of work too for the actress, who is having to wear a prosthetic belly for her role as pregnant Mercedes Fisher.
The feisty barmaid is having a baby with footballer fiancé Riley Costello (Rob Norbury) - despite her on/off affair with his father Carl (Paul Opacic).
Wearing a tiny yellow dress over her baby bump, Mercedes looked uncomfortable as she chatted on the beach with her on-screen mother Myra - played by Nicole Barber-Lane.
