Jacqueline Jossa is in talks for "Celebrity X Factor".

The former "EastEnders" actress - who played Lauren Branning on the ITV soap - is reportedly keen to show off her singing skills on Simon Cowell's new show.

A source told The Sun Online: "She couldn't keep it a secret and has been telling pals she's so excited and can't wait to show off her amazing voice.

"Jacqueline has met bosses for talks about joining the show and they are ongoing.

"The final line-up hasn't been confirmed yet and the decisions are still to be made.

"Jacqueline has joined a long list of really talented celebrities so it's a difficult decision whether to take her forward for the show or not."

Meanwhile, it was revealed in April that Jacqueline has set up a performing arts academy.

The academy has classes for pre-school age groups from three to six years, middle class from five to eight years old, and a top class group from nine to 12+ years.

Jacqueline, 26, departed her role as Lauren last year, and admitted afterwards she would be unlikely to join another soap due to her "loyalty" to "EastEnders".

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."

She has also praised the soap for the care she received while she was with the show, admitting she was always "so well looked after" on "EastEnders" and attended therapy when she "needed it" and even when she "didn't feel [she] needed it".

She wrote: "When I started EastEnders when I was 17years old. (I am now 26) I was lucky enough to be so well looked after and give the care that come with "fame" and what not. I went to therapy when I needed it and even when I didn't feel I needed it and turns out, it always comes in handy and doesn't mean you've lost the plot.

It means you are in control of your feelings and owning your stuff! Never be afraid to ask for help or even just go for a chat. You don't need to be going through a terrible time to need guidance and help. (sic)"
