Jacqueline Jossa has sent her Instagram fans into a frenzy. The EastEnders star shared a throwback photo from the day she got engaged to her fiancé Dan Osborne, simply captioning the photo "Eeeeeek!!!!" Jacqueline immediately received a flurry of messages from fans congratulating the happy couple, assuming that they had tied the knot, or were about to.
However, the soap star was quick to shut the rumours down. Jacqueline, who has a daughter Ella with her fiancé, replied to one tweet, denying that she was getting married on Thursday – the day after she shared her Instagram throwback. Fans won't be disappointed for too long though; it sounds like Jacqueline and Dan are preparing to say "I do" imminently. The actress shared another Instagram post last week, reflecting on how brilliant a father and partner Dan was. "I feel so lucky to have him in my life, he is just amazing, makes me smile constantly," she wrote. "He never seems to be in a rubbish mood even when he's been hurt or upset about certain things. He puts his children first all the time. I love the way he looks at me and the kids. How every dad should be with their children." The bride-to-be concluded: "To think I am lucky enough to find someone like this and get to marry him. Eeeek! It's all coming together."
Jacqueline and Dan got engaged in June 2015
Jacqueline and Dan got engaged in June 2015, four months after welcoming their daughter Ella. The doting parents were on a family holiday in Greece where they were celebrating Jacqueline's sister Katrina's wedding. Romantic Dan revealed that he arranged for the family to gather in the hotel lobby, while a boat approached the balcony with a sign reading 'Will you marry me?'

"I wanted to do it in front of Jacqui's friends and family because I know how much they mean to her," Dan told Now magazine."I told Katrina to ask for a group picture so that everyone had their backs to the water so they couldn't see the boat coming closer and closer, and then Katrina had to pass the ring behind her back to me. I said, 'Oh, look at that boat', and when Jacqueline turned around I was down on one knee with the ring." He added: "She covered her face with her hands, she couldn't believe it. She kept saying, 'Oh my God, is this really happening?'"
But Dan made sure he didn't steal anyone's thunder by getting permission from the bride Katrina – and Jacqueline's dad – before proposing. The former TOWIE star is also the father to a three-year-old son Teddy, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.
