JACQUELINE Jossa had more than commission fees to think about after nipping into her local estate agents.
The former EastEnders star was slapped with a parking ticket after leaving her motor to nip inside.
Although the jaunt out cost her more than she was expecting, the mum-to-be still managed a smile.
Jacqueline had soap fans in tears when she said goodbye to her on-screen sister Abi last month.
But the 25-year-old, who is already mum to two-year-old Ella with boyfriend Dan Osborne, admitted BBC bosses have left the door open for her when she leaves in the coming weeks.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz about her departure, she confessed: “That's the hardest part to be honest with you – leaving the character and my friends.
“Yeah I can go back, that is an option.”
Jacqueline will bow out of EastEnders in a typically dramatic fashion over the next few weeks, though her exit storyline is being kept well under wraps.
But unlike Jacqueline's previous departures, which have been relatively short-lived, it seems this time she might be done with the show for good.
She explained: “I would like to go into some other things.
“I'd love to do definitely some more drama, I wouldn't say no to a film, maybe even some theatre.”
The star has been on the soap for seven years and previously admitted she was concerned when she first heard she was being written out.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, she revealed her fears for her future, saying: “I had my suspicions that something might be going on because of the way my storylines were going, so I asked for a meeting to discuss what was happening.
“When they told me the plans I was really scared.
“Getting a job on a soap is a very comforting thing for an actress because it’s regular work.
“So when I realised that was being taken away, it did worry me.”
She added: “My last scene is with Jake and thankfully I was supposed to be crying because I couldn’t stop the tears from coming.”
