Former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa would consider an offer to star on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Although she isn't a fan of spiders

Jacqueline Jossa would consider an offer to star on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

The former EastEnders actress admits she would "maybe" head Down Under for the Australian jungle-based reality show one day.

She also revealed she wouldn't be a big fan of chowing down on creepy crawlies in the Bushtucker Trials, but she is "not opposed to reality TV" in general.

Asked if there are any reality shows she would like to take part in, she said she wouldn't appear in TOWIE, but she might be persuaded to head to the jungle.

"Do I like spiders? No. Can I dance on Strictly? No.

"I'd want to do something fun, but I wouldn't find eating spiders fun.

"I'm not opposed to reality TV, but I'm not all for it, either."

Since departing EastEnders - on which she played Lauren Branning from 2010 to 2018 - the 26-year-old star has given birth to her second daughter, 11-month-old Mia Osborne, who she shares with husband Dan Osborne, and set up performing arts academy, The Jac Jossa Academy.

And the star - who also has four-year-old daughter Ella - is concentrating on establishing the school before she returns to acting.

Would you ever see me in TOWIE? Probably not. Maybe the jungle one day.

She said: "For the next few months I'm going to focus on launching my new performing arts school, The Jac Jossa Academy, so I can't focus on anything else right now.

"But of course I will act again. That's my passion and that's my home."

Jacqueline has wanted to set up the academy "for years" and she now has time after departing Walford.

She added to new! magazine: "I'm really excited about it. It's something I've wanted to do for years and now I have the time to do it.

"I'm not at EastEnders anymore and I'm coming out of my maternity leave, so it just fell into place at the right time.

"It will offer drama, dance, singing and self-confidence classes as well."
