Jacqueline has been renovating her £1.2million Essex mansion with her husband Dan Osborne, after splashing out on the six-bedroom property last year.

It comes after Jacqueline revealed she was forced to sell her old house after ‘struggling with money’ following her exit from EastEnders in 2018.

Earlier this year, she confessed she wasn’t ’embarrassed or ashamed’ to share her money woes, because she landed some ‘amazing opportunities’ after her stint on I’m A Celebrity the following year.

Speaking to Sam and Billie Faiers on their podcast The Sam and Billie Show, Jacqueline explained it came as a huge shock when she lost her steady salary by leaving EastEnders.

The star had played Lauren Branning on the soap for eight years, before her final scenes aired in early 2018.

Jacqueline said: ‘You’re right about the hustle. I was on EastEnders for eight years where you got a set pay check every week.

‘It was a set pay check and I didn’t have to do anything else. It was my comfort blanket, it was what I knew. Then it just wasn’t.

‘There’s no such thing for me as maternity pay, so when I had kids I had to leave and I had to do magazine covers to make money to feed my kids.’

Jacqueline continued: ‘Once you’re gone, when you’re not on the show, you don’t have money. Done! You’re not paid anything else.

‘I’m going to have to do like a shoot.’ People go, ‘Why are you selling your soul?’ I’m feeding my kids. That’s the difference. I’m not embarrassed, I’m not ashamed.’

The star then revealed that before entering I’m A Celebrity in 2019, her money woes forced her to sell her house.

She told Sam and Billie: ‘There’s been times where I haven’t had money. Before I went in the jungle I was struggling with money. I had to sell my house.

‘And then I went into the jungle and had amazing opportunities, so I would never ever ever look at somebody and say, ”They’re not hustling enough”. You have to do it.’

Jacqueline, who shares daughters Ella, seven, and Mia, three with TOWIE star Dan, moved into their ‘forever home’ last year, and have since been documenting their renovations on social media.

The star described the move as a ‘fresh start,’ after she and Dan were plagued by rumors of marriage woes in 2020.

At one point, Dan moved out of the home he shared with Jacqueline, but since then their marriage has been stronger than ever.

Speaking to The Sun about their relationship woes, Jacqueline said: ‘I kept it in for a while, but then over lockdown it was a really good time and place for Daniel and I to go through everything — an opportunity for us to talk through it all. For me, this meant turning to therapy.

‘And because of that, I couldn’t be in the same house as Dan. There was no big argument or bust-up, and there were no other girls. Moving out was literally how I had to deal with it.

‘It was like when you wake up after a bad dream about someone — you need some space. That’s what it was like with therapy.’
