Jacqueline, who went to drama school in Bromley, is now up against Andrew Whyment and Roman Kemp to battle it out to be crowned king or queen of the jungle.

Having survived three weeks in the Australian camp, the mum-of-two has completed her fair share of bushtucker trials as well as some truly memorable on-screen moments.

Admitting she is not a fan of creepy crawlies, Jacqueline had already shown the true extent of her fear even before setting foot in the jungle - spotting a massive spider in the car, gasping in horror and leaping out to safety.

She has endured a helmet being filled with spiders, and viewers also witnessed the soap star grunt in terror as she was suspended in a box full of maggots and cockroaches.

The 'crevice of cruelty' may have been one of Jacqueline's toughest challenges.

Along with Ian Wright, the pair had to compete for stars by dodging water dragons and other creepy-crawlies while partially submerged in water, with Ian only able to free the stars by gradually shifting them through a wire mesh.

Both were squealing until the very end - quite understandably.

At first, Jacqueline was being picked for almost every trial, before her husband intervened and asked viewers to give her a break.

Although there have been plenty of tears for Jacqueline, she has always overcome her fear to get the best possible outcome for fellow camp mates.

Earlier this week, audiences were left in shock when Jacqueline belted out Girls Aloud's debut single 'Sound of the Underground', alongside Kate Garraway and also witnessed an emotional moment when she received a letter from her husband.

She is married to former TOWIE star Dan Osborne and they have two daughters - Ella, four, and Mia, one.

They live together in Essex.

Dan said how proud he was of his wife, how he misses her and that her "two little best friends" are awaiting her return.

But camp mate Myles Stephenson claimed Dan had cheated on Jacqueline with Love Island’s Gabby Allen sparking huge controversy in the camp and back at home.

Jacqueline was distraught and producers say they have decided to axe a surprise encounter with her husband last night, amid fears it would break her.

Starting out with 10 contestants, there are now just three left in the jungle, awaiting the final decision of the public vote to be announced by Ant and Dec later tonight.

According to the bookies, Jacqueline is second favourite to win.

The final episode will be aired on ITV1 at 9pm.
