JACQUELINE Jossa was torn down by fans online who accused her of ‘faking’ family Christmas photos.
The EastEnders star got dressed up in matching pyjamas for a wholesome photoshoot in a huge manor house ahead of the festive season.
But some fans accused her of pretending that the mansion, which is actually Hutton Hall in Essex, was her house.
Jac was joined by her husband Dan Osborne and their children Ella and Mia.
The clip saw the family decorating a Christmas tree and opening the front door together as if they were welcoming guests.
The video was to celebrate the launch of her festive PJs for all the family – including four-legged friends.
“The fact that every year you shoot your Xmas pjs at my wedding venue has me,” one wrote.
“If only we all lived in Hutton Hall,” another added.
“She films so many of her clothing videos here,” a third wrote.
“it did make me laugh…the ‘perfect’ family Christmas image,” echoed a fourth.
Jacqueline lives in a stunning £1.2million home that she bought in 2020 after winning I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Before going into the jungle she opened up about money struggles, after quitting EastEnders to raise her kids.
She said: “There’s been times where I haven’t had money. Before I went in the jungle I was struggling with money. I had to sell my house.
“And then I went in the jungle and had amazing opportunities, so I would never ever ever look at somebody and say, ‘They’re not hustling enough’. You have to do it.”
She further explained: I was on EastEnders for eight years where you got a set pay cheque every week. It was a set pay cheque and I didn’t have to do anything else. It was my comfort blanket, it was what I knew. Then it just wasn’t.
“There’s no such thing for me as maternity pay, so when I had kids I had to leave and I had to do magazine covers to make money to feed my kids.”
The BBC recently revealed that she was returning to the soap in an “explosive” comeback.
Beside a photo of her standing next to the iconic Albert Square sign, the caption read: “Lauren Branning is making an explosive comeback to Walford as @jacjossa is set to reprise her role in the coming months!
“Jacqueline was last seen on screen this June when her character travelled to France to spend some time with Peter and their son Louie, but things soon took a turn for the worse when Lauren discovered Peter was keeping a huge secret from her – his mum, Cindy, was alive.
“The Beales have since returned to Walford, but just what brings Lauren back to the Square is yet to be revealed…”
To celebrate her return and her birthday, she posed with a cake that looked like the figurehead of the Queen Vic pub.
“It’s my birthday and I’m heading back to the square so Dan got me an unreal cake!! Queen vic,” she wrote on Instagram.
“As I wind down on my amazing family holiday, I spent my birthday with my most loved people.
Jacqueline played Lauren until 2018, and then took a break until a brief return last year.
