All about: Jacqueline Jossa
Former EastEnders actress Jacqueline is looking forward to a phone detox in the Jungle and admits the toughest part will be entering as herself rather than as a fictional character.
“I’ve never done a show where I’ve been myself,” says Jacqueline. “I’m also scared of everything – especially spiders! They’re the worst, there will be tears!”
“My old colleagues on EastEnders are going to be shocked. I don’t think they can imagine me in there. I don’t like creatures. It is not my thing.”
Jacqueline admits she’s going to find it very tough being separated from her two young children. “This is definitely the longest I’ve ever been away from them and that’s going to be really hard,” she says.
What does her husband, ex TOWIE star Dan Osborne, think about her decision to take part? “He thinks I’m going to be good,” she replies. “He’s excited and he’s coming over to meet me when I come out.”
Asked how she would feel if she won this year’s I’m a Celebrity, Jacqueline replies: “Obviously I would love to win but you don’t go into it wanting to. This is one of those shows where you come out feeling proud of what you’ve done.”
