That's quite a career change!

EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa is considering a new career as a vlogger now her time in Walford is very nearly at an end.

The sisters fell off the roof of the Queen Vic in the now infamous Christmas episode of the show, but both their final scenes are yet to be screened after they survived the initial fall.

Fans of Jac don’t have to worry about her disappearing from screens for too long, though, because she’s been talking about entering the vlogging community on YouTube.

The mum-of-one has been tweeting excitedly about her plans, writing on New Year’s Eve: “Guys help me out, I’m trying to practice vlogging #trainwreck!! Gonna start with some questions that you’d like to know the answers to?”

Her new hobby obviously isn’t going quite to plan as yesterday she posted: “The vlog life is hard! I don’t get YouTube lol. someone needs to help me. @RyanOsborne93.”

But fear not, there is some good news as Jac hasn’t given up on the idea and is getting some help with her channel which she plans to launch asap.

She tweeted: “Guys Ryan should be helping me tomorrow. so I can let you know the name to subscribe to tomorrow and hopefully a video by Sat ..

“I feel like it’s going to be cute and you can all help me on my journey to learn how to use YouTube and become a vlogging Star.”

What do you think? Has Jac got what it takes to be the next Zoella?

Jacqueline’s army of fans were delighted by her news.

“It’s nice seeing someone you look up to from a soap doing this, you’re going to smash it,” tweeted one excited person.
