Jacqueline Jossa has said her stint in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle was worse than childbirth.

The mum-of-two, 27, was crowned Queen of the Jungle after winning over the public on this year’s series of the ITV reality show.

But the EastEnders star, who faced a series of gruelling trials during her time Down Under, has now admitted it was worse than labour.

She opened up on the Coming Out show, which shows the celebs leaving the camp and greeting their loved ones.

“It is worse than giving birth,” she told her husband Dan Osborne.

“Every trial is worse than giving birth, 100%.”

Jossa also confessed that she wasn’t as clean as she would have liked to have been because she only managed about 10 showers in three weeks.

She said: “I showered like 10 times, because I got to the point where I was like, I’m going to get covered in gunk, what’s the point?”

“The hardest part was missing you, missing the kids,” the actress said of her experience.

“It’s weird, I feel like, are they going to remember me?”

Jossa and Osborne welcomed daughter Ella in 2015 and had Mia in 2018.

Osborne was hit by various new cheating claims during Jossa’s time on the show.

It was rumoured that the actress had considered quitting the programme after fellow contestant Myles Stephenson reportedly told her in unaired scenes that Osborne had cheated on her with his ex Gabby Allen.

The Sun also claimed that he had a threesome with two other TV stars.

Osborne has strenuously denied all of the rumours.
