Jacqueline Jossa confirmed she has been staying at another house, after struggling during lockdown.
The EastEnders star has faced intense speculation over her marriage to Dan Osborne – who she shares daughters Mia and Ella with – but she insisted rumours of a divorce are ‘not her real life’.
Taking to Instagram, the 27-year-old shared a statement which read: ‘Morning all. This is a message for all of the amazing supporters who always show me so much love.
‘I’ve been honest about my situation at the moment, and yes I’ve been staying at another house – a house my parents will eventually be moving into.
‘I had really been struggling (haven’t we all?) lately and as I said yesterday, I’ve just needed some time and some breathing space.’
‘Yesterday I had five paparazzi outside my house all day, who then chased us in the car with the kids,’ Jacqueline continued.

‘It’s scary and it’s stressful – guys – last week was mental health awareness week. The stories about splits, divorce, third parties – it’s just not my real life. Don’t believe it.
‘I’m going to enjoy the sunshine with my kids. Thanks to everyone who always stands by us and to all the hard working parents trying to get through this crazy time – and for those who don’t get it, just be kind.’
The mum-of-two concluded her message by simply adding: ‘I will not be commenting any further.’
Dan has yet to comment on the reports himself, but shared her message on his own story.
The couple have been dating since 2013, tying the knot in a lavish wedding four years later.
The pair have been faced with ups and downs during this time, including rumours of the Towie star’s cheating – something he has always strongly denied.
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner was forced to rubbish reports that they had called time on their relationship over the weekend, after a insider claimed they were ‘taking a break’.
‘They’ve taken the very difficult decision to take a break from one another,’ they claimed.

‘They also didn’t want the kids to see them bickering. They plan to reassess everything once the coronavirus madness is over.
‘There was no third party involved,’ they added to the Sun on Sunday. ‘Jacqueline simply needed to prioritise her mental health. By splitting short-term, she hopes to save their relationship long-term.’
However, Jacqueline explained this was not true – and she was ‘working together’ with her husband of three years.
‘I need some time. There is no split. No divorce,’ she shared on Instagram.
‘We are working together not against each other. Change your head lines please. Thanks (sic).’
