Jacquline Jossa has praised her husband Dan Osborne for being her biggest cheerleader when it comes to body confidence.

The soap actress has lost 8lbs since embarking on her health and fitness kick this year but admitted that 30 year old Dan "hates it when I go on a diet".

"He doesn't care whether I've got an eight-pack.' If I say, 'Right, I need to go to the gym. I need to do this," he says, if I want to, I should, and that's as far as it goes','" she explained to The Sun.

"He hates it when I've gone on strict diets. He's like, 'Babe, come on, don't kill yourself over it.'"

Jacqueline joyfully added that the former TOWIE star "makes me feel so confident all the time".

In February, Jacqueline, 28, revealed she'd lost "over half a stone" after being on a "healthy reboot plan".

The former EastEnders star explained to her 3.2 million Instagram followers at the time: "I'm on a weight-loss journey. Everybody is saying to me in the DMs, 'You look like you're losing weight.' I am losing weight.

"I'm really happy, I've got a long way to go, but I'm feeling good, more confident and positive. It's changing my mood most importantly."

The mum-of-two – who has daughters Ella, six, and Mia, three, with hubby Dan – also revealed she had been consuming just 1,200 calories a day after vowing to eat healthier and has frequently used meal prep company Lions Prep to stay on track.

Despite overhauling her lifestyle, Jacqueline recently shut down speculation that she was pregnant after missing out on the National Television Awards.

She said: "No my huns I am not pregnant. Totally understand you thinking it, what with getting a bigger car and not going to the NTAs etc."

She continued: "Alas, no I am not…just for everyone that keeps on lol. Also I am chubby," while adding a laughing face emoji.
