JOS HOW I FEEL
Jacqueline Jossa shares snap of ex Dan Osborne as daughter Mia, 1, snuggles up to family quilt during splitby Mary Gallagher
JACQUELINE Jossa hinted she misses ex Dan Osborne as she posted a picture of him with their daughter Mia on Instaggram.
In the cute photo Mia, one, snuggled up to their family dog as she slept on a quilt that featured a huge clue Jac, 27, is thinking of Dan, 29.
The quilt featured a large photo of Mia's dad and her half-brother Teddy, six, from Dan's relationship with Megan Tomlin.
Jacqueline has remained silent today on her marriage woes but continued to plug her clothing line with InTheStyle
However, she posted the potentially revealing photo on Instagram just hours after Dan shared pictures of his kids in the middle of the night.
Dan had been up late on the social media site when he shared images of his three children, after Jac moved out of their home.
The I'm A Celeb champ moved out as the couple struggled to get along during lockdown, and the star reached out with photos of their daughter Ella, five, and baby Mia.
The ex-Towie star drew hearts over his photos and wrote "sisters, best friends".
His posts came after the I'm A Celeb champ broke her silence on her marriage problems, admitting: "I need some time".
It's believed she is now living at another property having signed a six-month lease, although Dan had thought she was staying with her parents.
Jacqueline wrote on Instagram: "I need some time.
"There is no split. No divorce. We are working together not against each other. Change your headlines please. Thanks."
Sources revealed the pair are hoping to "reassess" their love post-pandemic.
Tensions had become "unworkable" for the couple, previously plagued with cheating allegations, due to coronavirus imposed social distancing regulations and the confinement of their house.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: "They plan to reassess everything once the coronavirus madness is over.
“There was no third party involved.
"Jacqueline simply needed to prioritise her mental health. By splitting short-term, she hopes to save their relationship long-term.”
They added: "Jac and Dan have had their fair share of problems for the past couple of years but obviously lockdown magnifies everything.
“There’s still a lot of love there but quite simply, Jacqueline needs some breathing space."
The pair married in June 2017 at a Cheshire manor house with guests including fellow Albert Square stars Adam Woodyatt, Dean Gaffney and Jake Wood plus Towie’s James Argent.
But the marriage has been turbulent — and six months ago Dan was forced to make a public apology following infidelity allegations.
Claims that he had been unfaithful even emerged as Jacqueline triumphed on I’m A Celebrity in December — beating the likes of Caitlyn Jenner, Ian Wright, Nadine Coyle and Kate Garraway.
Model Chloe Ayling alleged she had a threesome with Dan and their Celebrity Big Brother co-star Natalie Nunn at the show’s 2018 wrap party.
He vigorously denied it despite photos emerging of the trio entering a hotel.
Dan wrote on Instagram: “So after weeks, months, years of constant articles & rumours, some true, some very untrue I want to publicly say, I know I have made mistakes, we all do as humans, but I’ve made some that have almost cost me my family."
Jac, who shares daughters Mia and Ella with the reality TV star, has always stuck by Dan and, since his apology, flooded her Instagram page with sweet family images.
Yet she may have given a hint to underlying tension in their relationship in their Kent home when she called out his photography skills for her at home fashion shoot.
She told her Instagram followers how her other half "wasn't great" at capturing her fashion poses for her In The Style clothing range.
It is not the first time they have split in a public way.
On May 1, 2018, The Sun Online exclusively revealed that the couple had called time on their love after a series of rows about Dan working away from home.
The couple decided to "take a break" from the relationship after the bust-ups caused by Dan spending time away in Marbella working at a fitness bootcamp.
