Jacqueline Jossa turned to therapy during lockdown to work through marriage issues with Dan Osborne

Jacqueline Jossa has revealed she went to a therapist during the lockdown earlier this year, amid her marital woes with husband Dan Osborne.

The actress and reigning I’m A Celeb winner, 28, shed light on when she moved out of the home she shares with Dan, 29, and their two children Ella, five, and Mia, two, six months ago.

‘It felt like everybody wanted to watch me fall apart,’ she told The Sun. ‘I kept it in for a while, but then over lockdown it was a really good time and place for Daniel and I to go through everything — an opportunity for us to talk through it all.

‘For me, this meant turning to therapy. And because of that, I couldn’t be in the same house as Dan. There was no big argument or bust-up, and there were no other girls. Moving out was literally how I had to deal with it.’

Claiming she needed ‘space’ from her husband, ex-EastEnders star Jacqueline went on: ‘It really, really helped, especially in terms of communication, teaching us how to talk to one another better. Therapy is a really good thing, whether for yourself or for a couple. I don’t understand why it’s still frowned upon.’

Jacqueline also addressed the women who have sold stories about her husband’s alleged infidelities.

‘Listen, you can’t stop the bitches selling stories — that is fact, I know that. They can say what they want, Daniel and I know the truth,’ she hit back.

Earlier in the year, Dan blamed the pressures of lockdown on the situation, adding that entertaining their children plus not being allowed their usual freedoms became too much and that they just needed ‘time apart’.

However, he insisted they had worked through their problems and were looking forward to having a ‘clean, fresh start together’.

He also said he’d like for them to renew their wedding vows as Dan admits that looking back on his wedding day amid the sea of negativity has ‘tarnished it’.

He revealed he plans to buy his wife a new ring for their vow renewal after hers ‘broke’ and said while he wears his ring, he doesn’t find it comfortable.

The tattoo lover told how Jacqueline suggested getting her name tattooed on his finger instead, but he’s unsure about the gesture, adding ‘I don’t know’.

On growing their family, Dan, who is also father to son Teddy, six, revealed they are ‘not getting to trying yet’ but says it would be ‘nice’ to add another little one to the mix.

Jacqueline and Dan have had their share of ups and downs with allegations of cheating on Dan’s part since they married in 2017.

Dan later admitted he had been unfaithful to Jacqueline and that she had forgiven him for his past indiscretions.

The reality star previously hit out at trolls who criticised his marriage in a foul-mouthed rant after a fan questioned why Jacqueline stays with him.

He wrote: ‘Because we love each other, have a beautiful family, I’m a good husband, good dad to our kids, we get on well, laugh together, super attracted to each other…

‘Any more reasons you need? You didn’t know none of that, eh? That’s because you do not f***ing know me, or my wife, or us as a couple lol.

‘So concentrate on your own life and you (sic) clearly never been taught to not be rude, especially to people you don’t even know. Hope you’ve learnt something from this.’

In July, Dan told The Sun how the couple are putting the past behind them and focusing on the future, which includes renewing their wedding vows and trying for another baby. 

Confession: Dan Osborne has admitted that he did cheat on wife Jacqueline Jossa and she’s since forgiven him 

He told the publication: ‘I’ve made mistakes, yeah. I’ve done things I shouldn’t have done. Me and Jac have spoken about that and she has forgiven me.

‘I know in the past I’ve denied things when they’re not true, then when something has been true, I probably just kept my mouth shut. I was a different person.’

He added: ‘It seems a cliché to say, but I was a young lad and on TV and stuff. I’m not saying you get big headed, but you get dug out for things anyway and then you’re feeling s*** in yourself.’ 

The star went on to admit to going out and getting ‘p****d’ instead of working on his relationship when things were ‘bad at home’.

In the candid chat with the publication, Dan failed to clarify which cheating rumours are true, with the couple having been rocked by many over the years.

Most notably Dan was accused of cheating on Jacqueline with Love Island star Gabby Allen in 2018, something they’ve both insisted wasn’t true.

The couple faced cheating claims once again after it was alleged Dan engaged in a threesome with his Celebrity Big Brother co-stars Natalie Nunn and Chloe Ayling last year, which he denied.   

Following Jacqueline’s victory in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, Dan apologised for doing things he wasn’t proud of in the relationship.

The reality star lamented his past behaviour, which he did not specify, in a candid post reflecting on the last decade and seemingly referenced his cheating scandal.

He went on to admit that if things were the other way around, he would have left Jacqueline.
