Jacqueline Jossa has said being reunited with her family is even “better” than winning I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The former EastEnders star was crowned Queen of the Jungle on the ITV reality show, while her husband Dan Osborne was hit by new cheating claims during her time away in the camp.

Jossa, 27, has now told The Mirror: “It’s absolutely amazing to be Queen of the Jungle, but to be back with my family is even better.”

She and former The Only Way Is Essex star Osborne, 28, are parents to daughters Ella, four, and Mia, one.

Osborne last year denied claims he had cheated with his Celebrity Big Brother co-star Gabby Allen. Jossa was in the jungle with Rak-Su boyband star Myles Stephenson who dated Allen before they split earlier this year over cheating allegations.

Osborne was also hit by claims in The Sun that he had had a threesome with Big Brother’s Chloe Ayling and US reality star Natalie Nunn.

He has strenuously denied all of the rumours, but Jossa would not have been aware of the extent of the allegations until she left the jungle after her win.

Osborne and former Love Island star Allen – who both took part in CBB in September 2018 – were pictured together on a yacht in Spain last year. Her ex-boyfriend Marcel Sommerville accused her of having a fling with Osborne during the holiday.

Jossa, who was pregnant at the time, is said to have temporarily split from Osborne over the claims but they reconciled when she gave birth to daughter Mia.

Their relationship was rocked again in March this year over claims Osborne kissed another Love Island star, Alexandra Cane, 28.

The couple met in 2013 and announced their engagement in 2015, after welcoming their first child together. They married in June 2017.

On Tuesday, Jossa took to Instagram to tell fans she was "absolutely fine".

In a video to Instagram Stories, she said: "Hello everybody. Thank you so much for voting for me. If you voted, it means the absolute world. I cannot quite believe it's happening to me.

"I just want you all to know that I am absolutely fine. It has been the best experience of my whole entire life. And my babies are here."

When Jossa was told she’d won on Sunday night’s show, she appeared to be very shaky as she said: "I've always been known as Lauren from EastEnders, or a doormat, or whatever you want to call it, and coming here I have actually proved myself."
