Jacqueline Jossa has paid a touching tribute to her two older brothers, John and David, who tragically died as babies.

The actress, perhaps best known for her role as Lauren Branning on long-running BBC soap opera EastEnders, hardly ever talks about the heart-breaking losses.

But this week the 28-year-old was happy to reveal she was lighting a candle for the late little ones in honour of Baby Loss Awareness Week,

Posting a Story for her 3.2million Instagram followers, she shared a moving snap of a lit candle on top of a marble table.

Accompanying the pic, a caption read: "Thinking of all the heavenly babies that are so missed and too special for this earth.

"My brothers John and David, I am thinking of you tonight, wondering what life would have been like with two older brothers backing my corner every step of the way.

"I hope I make you proud. My brave mum and dad for continuing to power through life even when it's so cruel.

"Thinking of my closest loved ones after several miscarriages, you know you are and I am thinking and praying extra hard tonight.

"Heaven has gained so many angels. Lighting a candle for you all."

The Bexley-born star scattered a handful of heart-warming emojis throughout the post, including hearts and angels.

This comes after Jacqueline previously disclosed that John and David’s deaths as tots made her seriously worried about having her own kids, but she’s now a happy mum to Mia, three, and Ella, six.

Opening up to the Sun, the actress said: "There’s no reason to think that would ever happen to me as there’s no hereditary link, but it’s such an awful thing to go through, and I’ve seen how it has affected my mum.

"It’s hard not to worry when you have a baby. It’s a nerve-racking time," she added.

Jacqueline mostly keeps details of the tragedies to herself, but in the past it was revealed that her mum and dad’s courage gave her strength to make it through the toughest moments of her stint onI’m A Celebin 2019.
