I’m A Celeb’s Jacqueline Jossa confesses her kids don’t know she’s on show

Jacqueline Jossa has revealed her two children are in for quite a shock when they turn on their TV and see their mum on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

The 27-year-old, most well known for playing Lauren Branning in EastEnders, is currently in Australia ahead of the launch of the ITV show.

But despite being on the other side of the world, Jacqueline confessed her two children Ella, four, and Mia, one, have no idea that she is appearing on the show.

For the next three weeks, the tots will see their mum take part in gruelling challenges which could include eating the privates of animals.

Her husband Dan Osborne, whom she wed in 2017, will likely be tuning in with the tots to cheer their mum on.

Speaking out in her introduction video, the-mum-two said she didn't "have the heart" to tell them she would be away for so long.

She said: "I didn’t know how to face even telling them. In the end, I thought the best idea was to say ‘mummy is going away for work’ and I would see them soon.

"My family is so close-knit and I will miss them all terribly."

She also revealed this is the longest she has ever been away from them and will very likely struggle.

The beauty continued: "This is definitely the longest I have ever been away from them and that is going to be really hard."

Despite their recent ups and downs, the babe revealed Dan has been "very supportive" of her going on the show and will be looking after the kids while she is gone.

She said: "He thinks I am going to be good. He is excited and he’s coming over to meet me when I come out."

Jacqueline also explained why she wanted to do the show, to prove she isn't a "doormat" following her ups and downs with Dan.

The pair's marriage hit headlines after he was spotted on a number of occasions partying with women.

Explaining her reasoning for going on the show, she said: "I think people think I am a pushover or a doormat.

"I also think some people pity me. I want to show I am fine, I am up for a laugh and that I will go for it and try my best."
