Jacqueline captioned the picture: "It begins. I'm going to miss having my best friend with me, but she's on her new journey, BIG SCHOOL doesn't know what's hit them.

"It's been a rollercoaster of emotions and I didn't think I would feel this sad. I felt really fine with it until this morning.

"She went in okay, probably a bit nervous, meeting new people and a new school it's all overwhelming. I took it a lot worse than she did."

"I am counting down the hours baby, can't wait to see you, I am so proud of you, you take everything in your stride and nothing is too much!

"You are one strong four-year-old. I love you angel!

"Soppy post I know! Hope everyone who's starting school or something new enjoys it! Go get em baby!"

Friends rushed to comment on the post. Helen Flanagan, who plays Rosie Webster in Coronation Street wrote: "Lovely mummy xxxx."

Emmerdale star Charley Webb, who recently gave birth to her third child, wrote: "Beautiful. We take it way harder than they do."

Jacqueline is also mother to Mia who was born in June 2018.

Jacqueline is married to the former The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne, who is Ella and Mia's father.

I'm going to miss having my best friend with me.

Dan has a son named Teddy from a previous relationship.
