JACQUELINE Jossa told fans she’s “forgiving” and could live alone if she wanted to after husband Dan Osborne admitted to cheating on her.
The I’m A Celeb winner took part in a candid Q&A on Instagram today with her home life a popular topic.
It comes just a week after Dan exclusively told The Sun that he’d “been an idiot” and that Jacqueline had forgiven him for his past mistakes.
One of Jac’s followers wrote: “You are scared to be on your own.”
She replied: “That couldn’t be further from the truth, I am quite a capable human being. If I wanted to be on my own, I could, very much so, but I don’t.”
While another said to her: “You’re very forgiving.”
Jacqueline agreed, answering: “Yeah, I am forgiving, yeah. I am forgiving.”
A later question saw her say “family is everything” after a follower suggested she’d do anything for Dan and their kids Mia and Ella.
She responded: “Yeah, of course, I don’t really know many people in my life who wouldn’t because family is everything, isn’t it? There’s nothing more important than family.”
Former Towie star Dan’s relationship with Queen of the Jungle Jacqueline has been dogged by accusations of infidelity for years, but he has always stayed silent or furiously denied the claims.
But after a tumultuous lockdown – that even saw Jacqueline move back in with her parents at one point – Dan has decided to lay his cards on the table so the couple can have a fresh start.
While he claims many of the cheating rumours have been overblown, he said he has now confessed everything to Jacqueline and, “takes full responsibility for being crap”.
Dan held his hands up to the cheating and even admitted he would have left Jacqueline, 27, if it were the other way round.
But now he wants to put all the negativity and heartache behind them by renewing their wedding vows and having another baby.
Speaking from the family home in Essex, he said: “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.
“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**t in yourself.
“And then you get a bit of attention… then things are bad at home, so you go out and get p****d instead of working on fixing things.
“It’s a bunch of mistakes all built into one that made it bad. So, I take full responsibility for being crap.”
He added: “There have been times where if it were the other way round, I would have left.
“I would have gone, so I’ve said to her ‘I wouldn’t blame you if you left me’. I’ve said that to Jac.
“I’ve said if it was the other way around I’d be gone, it’s not like I’ve been brushing off any mistakes that I’ve made. I’m fully aware of them and I’m aware that it ain’t right.”
Dan and Jacqueline have been together for seven years after meeting at an awards ceremony in 2013, while Dan’s ex Megan was pregnant with his first child, Teddy.
Shortly after they met, Dan took Ferne McCann on a date during an episode of Towie and Jac defended him, tweeting: “Leave him alone, he’s single and can do what he wants.”
However a couple of months later, the pair confirmed they were together and Jacqueline fell pregnant with Dan’s second child, Ella.
After a two-year engagement they married in 2017, but almost immediately their relationship was blighted by cheating rumours.
In May 2018, The Sun revealed the couple had split after rows about Dan working away from home when Jacqueline was eight months pregnant with their daughter, Mia.
Dan starred in Celebrity Big Brother in 2018. He ended up coming in third place on the show and winning an army of new fans – afterwards he admitted that going on the show saved his marriage because it made him realise Jacqueline “was not as bad as I thought”.
But last year when Jacqueline went to Australia for her victorious stint in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, the rumours about Dan’s infidelities reached fever pitch.
