She said: ‘I was at EastEnders for eight years, where you got a fixed paycheck every week. It was a fixed paycheck and I didn’t have to do anything else. It was my comfort blanket, was what I knew. So it just wasn’t.

‘For me there is no maternity pay, so when I had children I had to leave and I had to do magazine covers to earn money to feed my children.

There have been times when I haven’t had any money. Before going to the jungle I was struggling with money. I had to sell my house.

Jacqueline won I’m A Celebrity in 2019 and has since built a successful career through her acting school and fashion range.
