THEY have had a bumpy ride, but it seems former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa and husband Dan Osborne are making plans well into the future.
I’m told that Jungle Queen Jacqueline and former Towie cast member Dan have splashed out £1.2million on a sprawling new house.
The home, in Essex, has three floors and a cinema room — and the couple might have to have a few more kids to fill the six bedrooms.
A source said: “It’s a hugely impressive house and testament to Jacqueline’s hard work that they’ve been able to afford it.
“They sold their previous house some time ago and have been waiting for their ‘forever home’ and they think this is it.”
The couple have even set up an Instagram account to show the pad’s “journey” into being their home — despite it being an immaculate new-build.
Joined by Dan, his son Teddy and their daughters Ella and Mia, Jacqueline has also made a few videos of the house.
For one, the family are in a large, empty lounge, and Jacqueline says: “We have the keys and cannot wait to bring you on the journey with us.”
A second clip shows Dan wandering around with a tape measure, telling fans he is “measuring up the Lego room”.
The new house will be a fresh start for the pair, who have been working hard on their relationship after a series of ups and downs.
Last May, I told how Jacqueline briefly moved out of their then-marital home as she turned to therapy to work through marriage issues.
The actress, who won I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here! in 2019, revealed the family enjoyed a Domino’s takeaway in the new pad to celebrate getting the keys — even though they are not moving in until renovations have been done.
A filthy pizza the day you get the keys is an unwritten rite of passage.
ITV is trying to block celebrities who offer explicit material on subscription sites such as OnlyFans from appearing on shows.
The channel is said to be “cracking down” on hiring reality personalities, such as Kerry Katona, Stephen Bear and Megan Barton Hanson, who post X-rated content online.
Grace's bright future
JOHN Simm says there is a second helping of Grace that is even better than Sunday night’s opening special.
The actor, who plays the title role in ITV’s new detective thriller, read all ten of the Brighton-based book series written by Peter James for research into the role.
The pandemic stopped him shadowing real cops instead.
John said: “We filmed two and I think the second one is even more of a rollercoaster.
“They are brilliant books, every one is a cracking story, so we’ve got loads of material.”
He added: “I couldn’t put them down. I’ve never read them before but I’ve got hooked. He’s very clever, Peter James.
“Like Morse is in Oxford, Grace is in Brighton. Brighton looks great and it’s got that seedy underbelly.
“I find it really tough to watch myself. I can’t tell if I’m good any more.
"Hopefully people will like it.”
GAVIN & Stacey actor Larry Lamb says his 17-year-old daughter is being stalked – and the family have installed CCTV.
It is alleged the teenager and her friends have been targeted by a 26-year-old man and the police have failed to act, despite being given personal information and photographs of him.
Grimmy a bake off beginner
LET’S hope Nick Grimshaw's lack of baking experience is not a recipe for disaster during tonight’s Celebrity Bake Off.
The Radio 1 DJ, appearing on the special edition for Stand Up To Cancer on C4, said: “I’ve never, ever baked. I can make dinner – I cook – but I don’t bake anything.
“When I was asked to do this I was like, ‘Oh, I’ll bake the week before.’
“I realised I didn’t have scales, a whisk, a rolling pin.
"I had to go out and get everything.
"Then I practised twice in the week. I tried to make biscuits and I made a cake. I was using a bottle of wine as my rolling pin.
“It’s quite the baptism of fire to go from no baking to doing Bake Off.”
