Jacqueline is looking forward to tonight's big reveal just as much as the rest of us

Jacqueline Jossa isn’t going to let a small thing like having a four-day-old baby stop her from watching EastEnders tonight.

In fact, Jac – who plays Lauren Branning in the soap – can’t blimmin’ wait to discover the identity of Lucy Beale‘s killer in the show’s 30th anniversary episode.

‘So we finally find out who killed lucy tonight?? Oo I am too excited!!’ Tweeted Jacqueline, 22, this morning.

We don’t blame her. Jac‘s been pretty involved in the storyline, what with Lauren having already worked out what happened to Lucy, played by Hetti Bywater.

How frustrating must that be?! Having your on-screen alter ego know more than you do.

As Jacqueline only gave birth to her and boyfriend Dan Osborne‘s daughter Ella on Sunday, she understandably won’t be taking part in the live parts of tonight’s programme.

But she has sent her best wishes to her co-stars, who are currently getting ready for this evening’s two-part special. Eek!

‘#EELive goodluck everyone at @bbceastenders ❤️,’ wrote Jacqueline.

Jacqueline has kept a fairly low profile on Twitter over the past few days, clearly very busy adjusting to being a new mum to little Ella.

She and TOWIE hunk Dan, 23, are already TOTALLY smitten with their bubba.

After her arrival, Jac Tweeted: ‘Baby ella osborne was born yesterday 💞thankyou @DannyO and @Sarabro2 for everything. Amazing. She’s perfect x.’

Dan said: ‘So so so so happy to tell you all!! Our baby girl Ella arrived yesterday evening 😊 @jacquelineMjos done SO well, proud of you. I love you ❤️.’

It was obvious just how much love Jacqueline has for her newborn when she posted a simple message of three heart emojis to her page yesterday.


We have a question… will Ella be watching EastEnders with her mummy tonight?! Well, it’d definitely be a gripping one to start on.
