Jacqueline Jossa is preparing to bid farewell to EastEnders as she gets ready to give birth to her first child. But it’s unclear whether the actress who plays Lauren Branning in the soap is leaving Albert Square for good or if she’ll return after a stint of maternity leave.
“Can’t believe I will be filming my last scenes for Enders soon!!” she tweeted. “So crazy. Nearly 5 years of my life, amazing.”
She’s certainly got us guessing, but only time will tell what’s in store for Lauren on the BBC soap.
And it’s not just the 22-year-old’s career that’s taken a dramatic turn – her relationship with her unborn baby’s father Dan Osborne has fallen under scrutiny this week. Ever since the couple announced their baby news in August, their relationship has been in the spotlight.
But since Dan tweeted ” Relationships just do not seem to work,” in November, speculation has been rife.
This week, the pregnant actress tweeted that she was “sick of reading” about her alleged relationship trouble. “I hate feeling pushed into a corner, that I have to now speak about my private life to shut you all up,” she tweeted. “I am so bored of people talking about things they know NOTHING about.”
Well, it seems the rumours that her relationship is on the rocks have clearly upset Jacqueline. But there’s one thing that always makes her look on the bright side… her baby to be!
“My baby is wriggling like crazy right now!!!! Can’t wait to meet you little one #excitingtimes,” she tweeted.
And once she’s finished work, she’s looking forward to ‘nesting’.
“So many films I want to see! I know what I will be doing whilst nesting, waiting for bubba!!”
