Dan Osborne will no doubt be getting the daddy daycare practice in as fiancée, Jacqueline Jossa, heads back to the square for a EastEnders trail run

There’s no denying that Jacqueline Jossa is loving every moment of being a mummy to the adorable Ella. Who wouldn’t? She is such a cutie!

But the EastEnders star – and fiancee to TOWIE’s Dan Osborne – has cut her maternity leave short to head back to Albert Square.

According to The Sun, Jacqueline left the nappy bin for Dan to empty and she filmed her EXPOLSIVE return to the soap. Sorry, we probably shouldn’t have put ‘nappy’ and ‘explosive’ in the same sentence but we couldn’t help it!

Jac gave birth to daughter Ella in February but her character, Lauren Branning, hasn’t been seen on screen since she and Peter Beale moved to New Zealand that same month.

Now, for anyone one who has been to New Zealand, it is a BEAUTIFUL place, but there isn’t much going on, certainly not when you compare it to the drama of Walford, so we’re not surprised she is back!

The Sun reports that Jac’s character Lauren will be back on screen as dad Max stands trial for the murder of Lauren’s BFF Lucy Beale. ‘Lauren’s return will be explosive becasue she knows Max didn’t kill Lucy,’ a source said. ‘She agreed not to unmask Bobby as the killer but surely that won’t be at the expense of her own father…’ *cue dramatic final credits of EastEnders*

Wow – this trail is going to have us hanging on the edge of our sofa, that’s for sure!

But don’t worry, while Jac got her teeth stuck into all the court drama,  little Ella wasn’t left without her doting mum for long. Jacqueline has only filmed a handful of episodes and will return full-time around the New Year. The trail scenes are now wrapped so Jac is now back at home with Dan and Ella – lucky her!

We can’t wait to see you back on screen, Jac!
