Jacqueline Jossa is unrecognisable as she transforms into the Grinch at her performing arts academy

Mean & green

JACQUELINE Jossa underwent a drastic transformation as she became green meanie the Grinch ahead of Christmas Day.

The I'm A Celeb winner, 27, relished being the anti-festive character at her performing arts academy in Bexleyheath.

Wearing green face paint and a furry suit, Jac mimicked Jim Carrey's turn as the yuletide favourite when she struck a series of poses.

She made peace signs with her long fake fingers and showed off her gnashers.

And last night she chilled out at home in Grinch pyjamas, telling fans: "After the busiest craziest few weeks of my life, this is where you will find me all of CHRISTMAS. (After I finish my Xmas shopping that I am super late with.. been busy in the jungle)

"GRINCH IS LIFE!! Merry Xmas my lovers!!!! ❤️❤️."

Yesterday The Sun exclusively revealed the jungle queen has landed a six-figure deal with clothing website InTheStyle and will launch her own collection in 2020.

A source close to the ex-EastEnders actress said: “Jacqueline has been massively in demand since winning I’m A Celeb and she’s been courted by some huge brands but she wanted to team up with InTheSyle because she’s a fan of their ranges.

“She’s signed a huge six figure deal with them to release her own collections, just like Charlotte Crosby and Billie Faiers."

Jac also has some lucrative TV offers on the table, with This Morning and Loose Women interested.

The source said: “Jacqueline has also been inundated with telly opportunities but she’s biding her time and wants to concentrate on landing some more serious roles in the New Year.

“She’s hoping to continue her career in serious drama and is attending castings.”

Jacqueline shed the pounds during her three week stint in the jungle where she lived off rice and beans, as well as the occasional treat.

Earlier this week she confirmed her one-stone weight loss as she gushed over the "jungle diet" but admitted she had hoped to lose more.

She revealed that because she and her co-stars tackled the critter-filled challenges so well, they actually ate hearty meals, with two portions of rice a day.
