Jacqueline Jossa has spoken out for the first time since newspaper headlines this weekend suggested she had separated from her husband, TOWIE star Dan Osborne. The I'm a Celebrity winner took to Instagram on Sunday afternoon, where she posted a heartfelt message to her Stories. Former EastEnders star Jacqueline wrote: "I need some time. There is no split. No divorce. We are working together not against each other. Change your headlines, please. Thanks."

On Saturday, Mirror Online reported that the 27-year-old had moved out of the family home she shares with Dan and their children: Ella, five, and one-year-old Mia. The family live in Bexleyheath, Kent, but the actress is understood to have moved in with her parents. However, her post on Sunday suggests that this might not signal a permanent separation. Dan and Jacqueline have been together for seven years and married in 2017.

After she won I'm a Celebrity in 2019, the mum-of-two took the unusual step of cancelling all live media appearances back in the UK amid rumours that her husband had been unfaithful. Speaking later to Lorraine Kelly, Jacqueline said: " He knows he's done wrong, he knows he's done a lot wrong. There's some stuff that's absolutely not true." Earlier in the week, the star revealed that she had sent a message of support to fellow jungle resident Kate Garraway, whose husband Derek Draper remains in hospital with Covid-19.
