She’s kept her fans entertained with her hilarious lip-syncing videos, and the fun doesn’t stop when Jacqueline Jossa is with her daughters.

The 27-year-old has loved spending precious time with her girls Ella, five, and two-year-old Mia, over the past few months, despite having the added pressure of home schooling.

“I do a lot of silly dancing and mucking around on social media and my followers love to see the real me online – and that’s usually at home having fun with the kids,” she says.

But don’t expect the former EastEnders actress to sign up to Strictly Come Dancing or Dancing On Ice any time soon.

“I can’t dance,” she revealed last week. “I would break so many bones!”

However, there are a couple of roles she wouldn’t mind landing, such as a part in Ackley Bridge. “I would love to,” she says, while appearing in Call The Midwife would be a “dream”.

She’s even sparked rumours of a return to Walford, saying, “Maybe one day. I loved my time on the show.”

For now, Jac has her hands full promoting her In The Style fashion range while raising her gorgeous daughters with her husband of three years, Dan Osborne, 29.

Here, Jac reveals the struggles she has faced in lockdown, and how she wants her daughters to follow their dreams…


Hi Jacqueline. What have you and the family been doing to entertain yourselves over the past few months?

Lots of sunny days in the garden. We’ve been so lucky with the weather, and we’ve been making dens and watching movies. We set up a big screen in the garden with bean bags and blankets. The kids have been so well behaved throughout. I really feel for all the little ones who have been stuck at home rather than out playing with their friends and going to school. We’ve gone on walks, we’ve baked and coloured. I’m all home-schooled out!

What have been your worst and best moments of lockdown?

The worst has been not being able to let the kids have their freedom. I really felt for them, but they were honestly so amazing and dealt with it brilliantly. I couldn’t be prouder. The best moment is probably having that time at home that I wouldn’t have had. I came out of the jungle and then felt like within a matter of weeks lockdown began, so I’ll cherish that time at home.

Did you take up any new hobbies during lockdown?

When you have two young children, there isn’t much time for hobbies. I worked a lot from home – it was a busy time. All parents can relate to juggling, even at the best of times. Lockdown has proved just how busy our lives are. I haven’t set myself many challenges, but I do love working hard. I would love to keep fit and I’ve got some exciting projects coming up which I’m currently helping bring to life. I think the rest of this year I’ll be grateful for everything that comes my way.

You were crowned Queen of the Jungle last December. Does it feel like a long time ago?

So much has happened in the world since then, it’s crazy to think that I came home and it was Christmas – little did we know what was in store for us all this year. So yes, it does feel like a long time ago. In there, I faced all my fears – remember my final spider challenge? It was horrendous but I feel like I’d pick up any insect quite easily now. I loved being outside and sleeping outside, it really is the best adventure and a trip of a lifetime. I miss it!

You took part in the Peperami #MeatTheBeat challenge on TikTok alongside Diversity stars Ashley Banjo and Perri Kiely, and football freestyler Liv Cooke. Why did you want to get involved?

I’ve never considered myself an influencer, but I do a lot of work through my Instagram, so it’s interesting now to move over to TikTok and take part in projects happening on there. Ashley Banjo issuch an amazing choreographer. He’s a legend, so I was really up for learning this dance challenge created by him. I didn’t think I did too badly.

Not at all! Do your girls like dancing?

They love a boogie around the living room!

Do you think theywill follow in your footsteps into acting?

They are a bit young still to decide what they want to do when they are big. I’ll support their dreams. Always.
