Jacqueline Jossa says she’s ‘struggled being a full time working mum’ in candid post with daughters Mia and Ella

JACQUELINE Jossa has admitted she's "struggled" being a full time working mum to daughters Mia and Ella in a candid post on Instagram.

The 27-year-old actress, who rose to fame on EastEnders, said taking care of Mia, two, and Ella, five, during the coronavirus pandemic had been "tough".

Dan Osborne's wife left EastEnders in 2018 but runs her own performing arts school in South London and has a fashion line with In The Style.

Jacqueline commended social networking app Peanut in her post, saying it has helped her connect with like-minded women.

She said: "2020 continues to be a mega challenge for us mums out there. 

"'I've struggled being a full time working mum and although I wouldn’t have it any other way, homeschooling Ella, keeping Mia engaged and trying to keep up my own working routine has been tough.

"I've been SO thankful for everyone's support this year but especially the amazing community of women I've found on the @peanut app.

"@peanut gives mums like myself an opportunity to talk, ask questions, and get support which is key during a time where we're all having to adapt a lot more than usual.

"I've really found the advice, encouragement and positivity essential in the constant battle of juggling work commitments with being a mummy to Ella and Mia.

"Sometimes you just need some kind words of encouragement from someone that's in your boat to make you feel like you've got this! Whether you're trying to conceive, pregnant, or a mama like me, I encourage you to join the app, it's the support system we all need!"

Her post comes after the I'm A Celebrity winner and her ex-TOWIE star husband, 29, headed to Thorpe Park without the kids today.

Jac and Dan were all smiles as they wrapped up for the cold in The Sun's exclusive pictures.

Dan shared a photo of the two of them in front of the gates, captioning the pic: "A rare day for us without the kids to be big kids ourselves 😄❤️"

Jac commented underneath: "I love you 💙🤭"

The loved up couple are back on track after Dan's admission to The Sun that he cheated on Jac.
