Jacqueline Jossa rules out soap appearance

Share article:

Jacqueline Jossa would never appear in another soap because she is loyal to "EastEnders".

The former Albert Square actress starred as Lauren Branning in the BBC One soap from 2010 until earlier this year, and while she is hoping to land some TV and theatre work in the new year, she has ruled out appearing on a similar serial drama.

She said: "I don't think I'd be able to do another soap as my loyalty lies with "EastEnders", but I'd love to do dramas and theatre."

Jacqueline - who has two kids, Ella, three, and four-month-old Mia, with husband Dan Osborne - has started auditioning for new roles, but is expecting to be busier come 2019.

She said: "I'm starting [to audition] now but it's not really the best time. Come January, I'll be smashing into them."

However, the 26-year-old star insists she will not be following in the footsteps of former "EastEnders" star Patsy Palmer, who quit the UK for Los Angeles following her latest stint in the soap.

When asked if she would ever do the same, Jacqueline told OK! magazine: "Oh God no. I'd never move to LA. I've got too much going on here.

"I'm a home bird. I live in my pyjamas. I'd never be able to swan around LA looking all glam."

While Jacqueline doesn't fancy a move to LA, her character has gone even further afield in the soap.

In July, it was revealed Lauren had swapped Walford for New Zealand.

During an episode of the soap, Lauren's dad Max Branning (Jake Wood) revealed she was halfway around the world.

He said: "Lauren's in New Zealand. [Baby] Abi's all I got left."

Lauren's gran Cora Cross (Ann Mitchell) also confirmed the recovering alcoholic was in New Zealand, admitting she is "doing fine" and that "New Zealand clearly agrees with her".
