Jacqueline left the soap in 2018, and has been busy with family life and a winning stint on I'm a Celebrity since. The doting mum often shares photos of her children and keeps fans updated with her motherhood journey. Jacqueline, her husband Dan Osbourne and the two daughters they share - Ella and Mia - are a tight-knit family.

Earlier in February, Jacqueline revealed that she was feeling emotional ahead of daughter Ella's fifth birthday. Taking to Instagram with a photo of her sweet daughter, the 27-year-old wrote: "I’m obsessed with her. Little Ella. She’s going to be five this month and I cannot deal with it. Please slow down my baby love."

Fans were quick to relate. One replied: "Time really does fly by when you become a mummy," while another noted: "Mine are growing up far too fast. Enjoy them while they are young and listen to you."
