Panicked Dan Osborne complained he was feeling stressed about Christmas.

The dad-of-three admitted he was racing around the shopping centres like a "headless chicken" trying to get last minute Christmas gifts.

In a piece to camera on Friday night, the former TOWIE star confessed he found Xmas shopping "hard work".

Dan and Jacqueline divided up the shopping list as they headed to different shopping centres to ensure they had everything for their two daughters Mia and Ella on Christmas morning.

Even with the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here winner's help, Dan said he was feeling the pressure.

But Christmas slipped Dan's mind as he took it upon himself to look after his two girls in Jacqueline's absence.

Dan said: "All of a sudden, Xmas is here, I'm rushing around like a headless chicken.

"Jac is at one shopping centre. I'm at another... Three other shops to go in. Already been in three.

He added: "Intense shopping trip tonight."

It's been a tough few weeks for the couple after Dan was swept up in bold claims he had a threesome with Chloe Ayling and Natalie Nunn last year.

The family man maintained these claims were false.

But it's not all bad news; in the wake of her win, Jacqueline has reportedly signed a six-figure deal with In The Style clothing range in 2020.
