Jacqueline Jossa would consider I'm A Celebrity offer

Share article:

Jacqueline Jossa would consider an offer to star on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".

The former "EastEnders" actress admits she would "maybe" head Down Under for the Australian jungle-based reality show one day, and while she wouldn't be a big fan of chowing down on creepy crawlies in the Bushtucker Trials, she is "not opposed to reality TV" in general.

Asked if there are any reality shows she would like to take part in, she said: "Would you ever see me in "TOWIE"? Probably not. Maybe the jungle one day.

"Do I like spiders? No. Can I dance on "Strictly"? No.

"I'd want to do something fun, but I wouldn't find eating spiders fun.

"I'm not opposed to reality TV, but I'm not all for it, either."

Since departing "EastEnders" - on which she played Lauren Branning from 2010 to 2018 - the 26-year-old star has given birth to her second daughter, 11-month-old Mia Osborne, who she shares with husband Dan Osborne, and set up performing arts academy, The Jac Jossa Academy.

And the star - who also has four-year-old daughter Ella - is concentrating on establishing the school before she returns to acting.

She said: "For the next few months I'm going to focus on launching my new performing arts school, The Jac Jossa Academy, so I can't focus on anything else right now.

"But of course I will act again. That's my passion and that's my home."

Jacqueline has wanted to set up the academy "for years" and she now has time after departing Walford.

She added to new! magazine: "I'm really excited about it. It's something I've wanted to do for years and now I have the time to do it.

"I'm not at "EastEnders" anymore and I'm coming out of my maternity leave, so it just fell into place at the right time.

"It will offer drama, dance, singing and self-confidence classes as well."
