EastEnders star says she is too “evil” to go on reality TV

We'd watch her!

It’s no secret that EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, who plays Lauren Branning, is leaving the show at Christmas.

We’ve all been wondering what she’ll do next – with speculation rife that she could be heading into the Celebrity Big Brother house in January.

But Jac has put that rumour firmly to rest. She says she’d never be able to do reality TV because she’s just too horrible!

Her words, not ours!

“I’m not going in Big Brother,” she told The Sun Online.

“I wouldn’t do anything like that because I am terrible around people. I’m aggy if I haven’t eaten and I just get argumentative.

“I’m evil! I have such a dark side to me that I couldn’t be on TV 24/7 with alcohol involved. It’s not safe for me.”

Jacqueline, who’s married to former TOWIE star Dan Osborne, says she’ll keep an eye out for any interesting jobs in the future.

But for now she’s happy spending time with her daughter, Ella, two.

Lauren’s exit from EastEnders – alongside on-screen sister Abi – is said to be “explosive”.

With Jac leaving the show, and bosses having confirmed that one character will die over the festive period, could Lauren – and Jacqueline – be saying goodbye to Albert Square forever?

We’ll have to wait and see!
