Jacqueline Jossa was crowned Queen of the Jungle on last year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and now the former Eastenders star has given her predictions for who will win the crown on this year’s show.

I’m A Celeb started on Sunday 15 November in this year’s newly created set at the historic Gwrych Castle in North Wales, as coronavirus restrictions prevented the show from being filmed in its usual spot in Australia.

Ant and Dec presented the show in its new location as stars including Mo Farah, Vernon Kay and Victoria Derbyshire headed into the chilly Welsh camp.

And now, 2019 Queen of the Jungle Jacqueline, 28, has weighed in on her predictions for this year’s series, telling fans that she thinks fellow Eastenders alumnus Jessica Plummer, 28, has the potential to win the series.

Jacqueline said: “So, my top five I would say is obviously the Eastenders guys! Jessica and Shane. Obviously I’ve met Shane, I haven’t met Jessica but she seems absolutely lovely and I feel like she could potentially win. She’s just got that something about her.

"Giovanna as well, I absolutely love her. And then you’ve got Vernon as well, who I think will do really well.”

Although stating she was going to give her “top five,” the star gave just four of her favourites.

Introducing her thoughts on the show, Jacqueline reassured fans that despite the new format, she believed it was still going to be “brilliant” and couldn’t wait to see what was in store for the new campmates.

Jacqueline said: “I’ve had a lot of people saying it’s not the same. It is going to be so good… It’s going to be a little bit different this year but it’s gonna be brilliant. It’s going to be so good.

"I felt like it still had that warm bubbly feeling that you get when you watch jungle and everyone is going to be watching it, probably more so than even last year because there’s nothing else to watch. We’re all stuck indoors so it’s come at a perfect time, saving grace. It’s going to be brilliant.”

The ex-Eastenders actress, who shares two children with husband Dan Osborne, said: “I love that they’ve just adapted and they’ve made it amazing. The set looked absolutely beautiful, it’s gonna be so good. Very excited.”
