The 27-year-old actress was crowned Queen of the Jungle during the live final of the ITV reality show on Sunday (08.12.19), after she beat fellow finalists Roman Kemp and Andy Whyment to the title.
Speaking in front of all her camp mates after her win, Jacqueline said:
‘I have no words. I love everybody there so much, it’s making me feel… I don’t even have words.
‘Thank you so much for voting for me, you don’t know how much this means. I love my family so much, I love Daniel [Osborne, her husband], I love my kids, I love my mum, dad, my sister, my best friends, I love you so much’.
During her time in the jungle, the ‘EastEnders’ star was voted to take part in several Bush Tucker Trials, and “can’t believe” how many of her fears she faced.
But the star says that despite her journey being “harder” than she expected, she’s “grown in confidence” thanks to the experience.
‘I can’t believe I did all that stuff. It was not what I expected, it was a lot harder than I expected.
‘But also I just didn’t think it was going to be such a turning point in life. I went in and was one person and I feel like I’ve come out as a different person. I feel like I’ve grown in confidence and found who I am as a person a little bit more’.
Jacqueline battled with her self-confidence before joining the show, and has said being in the jungle has helped her learn how to be herself and not care if people say “nasty” things.
‘I think it’s so easy to care so much what other people think of you. People you don’t know, like trolls, people that just say nasty things for the sake of it.
‘And I’d try and change their opinion, and it just doesn’t make sense. But in here, you have no choice. You have to be you, there’s no other option. And I had amazing people just constantly bigging me up and saying amazing things. I learnt so much from every single person’.
