Jacqueline Jossa is surrounded by a mountain of clothes as she unpacks after moving into £1.2 million Essex mansion
Jacqueline Jossa has a lot of work on her hands after moving into her £1.2 million Essex home with her husband Dan Osborne and children.
The former EastEnders star, 28, shared a glimpse of how her unpacking was going on Monday as she took to her Instagram surrounded in a mountain of clothes and boxes.
The actress gave a view of the workload ahead of her as she showed empty cardboard boxes stacked up at the door and rooms covered in their stuff.
She sat in a black hoodie with a yellow smiley face, from Justin Bieber’s drew house collection, and later shared a video of her lying on her bed surrounded in piles of clothes.
In the clip shared to her home Instagram account, a frustrated Jacqueline put her head in her hands and said: ‘I’m not going to bed like this’.
The I’m A Celebrity winner also snapped a mirror selfie as she sat on her bedroom floor in front of a wardrobe sorting through handbags and clothes.
She also uploaded a snap of all her children’s books and toys in boxes and black plastic bags as they waited to be unpacked.
Earlier in the day, Jacqueline and her TOWIE star husband, 29, shared the exciting news that they were now permanently living in the property.
The couple share daughters Ella, six, and Mia, two, and Dan also has son Teddy, seven, from a previous relationship.
The move follows weeks of vast renovations to their six-bedroom home, including a brand new kitchen, transforming the interiors and re-paving the garden.
Jacqueline shared a snap of a beautiful bouquet of flowers gifted to herself and Dan to celebrate moving into their new home.
She penned the caption: ‘SO …. WE MOVED IN!
Last week, Jacqueline also gave fans a glimpse of her home’s eye-catching new kitchen in a video tour on Instagram.
She was sure to showcase the bold patterned tiles, a secret cupboard and a high-tech charging point.
Sharing before and after pictures of the kitchen, Jacqueline gushed over her new Howdens fittings as she opted for a white and navy Shaker style kitchen after ripping out the grey gloss fittings.
She captioned the shots: ‘ITS HAPPENING GUYS. Our new kitchen!! Swipe for the journey!t
‘The kitchen is a @howdensjoinery and the amazing @fsp_construction_limited_ fitted the WHOLE THING!
‘From start to finish you have been amazing guys, we love you all loads!! Friendly faces that get the job done! Why do I feel nervous… what do you think?
‘(I know you are going to ask about the tiles, I am going to do a whole separate post, some close ups and tell you all where we got it from and colours etc !!! Xxx [sic]’.
The TV star then gave fans a video tour of the fittings, squealing, ‘I love it so much!’
She was quick to show off some of the features in the room, including a touch charging point fitted into the island countertop that rises out when used.
The Queen Of The Jungle also gave a peek inside her secret cupboards, where she plans to keep her toaster, coffee machine and other appliances hidden away.
The most eye-catching feature, however, was certainly her Freelands Tiles in a bold blue pattern that she used as a splashback and also on the floor around the island.
Explaining her decision behind the unusual floor arrangement, Jacqueline revealed that the previous homeowners hadn’t tiled beneath the original kitchen island, so they had been left with an ugly concrete floor when they ripped it out.
Jacqueline has been treating fans to several glimpses of the house’s impressive interiors on Instagram.
Filming inside the open-plan living and kitchen space, she recently revealed there was an enormous TV installed on the wall, alongside a luxury tiled fireplace.
Moving through the home, Jacqueline showed off the chic all-white kitchen and stylish concrete floors. However, the brunette beauty revealed there was still plenty of work to do on the property’s outside space.
Carrying her camera outside, Jacqueline revealed that the huge garden was still mostly comprised of concrete and tarpaulin.
The doting mother also revealed that she and husband Dan were having a bar added to the garden.
Panning the camera towards the back of her new garden, builders – one of whom was Jacqueline’s father-in-law – could be seen insulating the wooden outhouse.
The soap star also gave fans a glimpse of her and Dan’s gym – which was being built at the other end of the garden.
The couple have been openly documenting their changes to their new property on social media.
MailOnline revealed in March the six-bedroom house boasts a large kitchen and living room, as well as an additional study, fireplace and garden, while Jacqueline and Dan’s room has its own desirable dressing area.
Yet last month, the mother-of-two admitted that the toll of the house move is causing her stress as she told how things ‘keep going wrong’.
In a post shared to her Instagram stories, she said: ‘I’ve been really stressed. I can’t actually explain to you how stressed I have been.
‘It’s been really getting to me and it’s been really difficult for me. Things keep going wrong. Five things could get done, and then the next minute, ten more things would have to be done.’
The TV personality went on to explain that she had to take a few days away from the home to re-cooperate amid juggling the stress of moving home and caring for her daughters.
