The 28-year-old former EastEnders star has spoken out about her marriage troubles and looked to put to bed some of the rumours surrounding her husband Dan, 29, cheating on her.
While Jacqueline was winning the hearts of the public, while on her way to winning I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! last December, Dan was facing a media storm as allegations of his infidelity came out.
He denied being unfaithful at the time and the allegations threatened to bring a dark cloud over Jacqueline’s big moment Down Under, where she was crowned Queen of the Jungle.
Nearly 12 months after the swirling rumours tried to bring doubt to her marriage to Dan, Jacqueline has now hit out at those she believes were trying to cash in by selling their stories.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Listen, you can’t stop the bitches selling stories — that is fact, I know that.
“They can say what they want, Daniel and I know the truth.”
The former soap star was in defiant mood and said it was “really hard” as situations were “taken out of context.”
Jacqueline added that the reason why she had “not said anything until now” was because a “lot of it was stuff from the past we had already dealt with.”
In the spring, Jacqueline took some time out and moved out their £1million Essex home and she said that she felt the eyes of the nation who “wanted to watch me fall apart.”
Jacqueline turned to therapy to work through the problems in her marriage to Dan and said that “over lockdown it was a really good time and place for Daniel and I to go through everything.”
She said that this was the reason why she had to move out so that they had their own space while they did this.
Jac asserted: “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.”
She added that “some of the stuff I was dealing with wasn’t even all about him” anf that it “really, really helped, especially in terms of communication, teaching us how to talk to one another better.”
