Jacqueline Jossa has turned a corner and is celebrating her body, when she used to hide it, calling herself ‘Captain Thunder Thighs’.

The former EastEnders star shared a quiet moment with her daughter Mia enjoying a sleepy cuddle on the sofa over the Christmas period, and admitted that posting the photo was a turning point for herself as she’d usually shy away from it because she didn’t like her appearance.

But, it would seem that with a renewed confidence after her I’m A Celeb win, has helped Jac celebrate her body instead of looking for the ‘imperfections’.

‘She gets her chunky legs from her mumma #captainthunderthighs.

‘There once was a time I wouldn’t have posted this because my legs look slightly bigger, but I actually quite like my thick legs now so YOLO BITCHES!! Love all of your wobbly bits people. (As soon as you look at the positives in your imperfections the easier it is to love them, and you look at pictures and yourself in general differently)

‘Thanks so much for everyone who has been so amazing and messaged such kind words! You guys are the best honestly.. Also still not used to being called QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE on the streets but dang I’ll take it!! I’m going to be over the moon about this title for a long time #shesaqueen’.



It has been a roller coaster ride for Jac after emerging from the jungle to stressful cheating rumours surrounding her husband Dan Osborne, but there’s also been plenty of ups – as it’s been claimed that the actress has landed herself an impressive six-figure fashion deal.

The 27-year-old Queen of the Jungle was snapped up by InTheStyle soon after she left the jungle and she is set to rake in the cash as the new face of the fashion brand.

A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: ‘Jacqueline has been massively in demand since winning I’m A Celeb and she’s been courted by some huge brands but she wanted to team up with InTheSyle because she’s a fan of their ranges.

‘She’s signed a huge six figure deal with them to release her own collections, just like Charlotte Crosby and Billie Faiers.’

Jacqueline is also weighing up some impressive TV offers, with both This Morning and Loose Women interested in having her join their shows.


However, Jacqueline is hoping to return to acting and is considering all offers for now.

The source added: ‘Jacqueline has also been inundated with telly opportunities but she’s biding her time and wants to concentrate on landing some more serious roles in the New Year.

‘She’s hoping to continue her career in serious drama and is attending castings.’

Jacqueline recently admitted she might return to EastEnders “one day” – but is hoping to land a musical theatre role next.

The star departed the BBC One soap in February 2018 after her character Lauren Branning – who she had played from 2010 – fell off the roof of the Queen Vic pub, but somehow survived.

Asked if she would return to ‘EastEnders’, she said: ‘Maybe one day, I would never, ever say never.

‘I got thrown off a building, and I hobbled off with a walking stick. She’s somewhere, I think she might be in New Zealand. I loved it there [on EastEnders], it was amazing.’
