However, her jungle win was a major ”turning point” in her life.

She said: “I’ve grown in confidence and found who I am as a person.

“I have always been known as Lauren from EastEnders, or a doormat, or whatever you call it, and coming in here I have actually proved myself.”

Since being crowned Queen of the Jungle, Jacqueline has become quite the fashion icon and even started her clothing collection with In The Style.
