I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winner Jacqueline Jossa has revealed she took part in the most recent series in order to “create a better life” for her family.

The 27-year-old - who beat out the likes of Coronation Street actor Andy Whyment and radio DJ Roman Kemp on the ITV show - took to Instagram to share some photographs of herself, and youngest daughter Mia, getting ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

In the passionate caption, she claimed that being a mother is tough and urged how important it is for parents to do more grown-up things that make them happy alongside all the “snuggles and Disney movies.”

Jossa then went on to explain why she chose to spend three weeks Down Under, away from Mia, four-year-old Ella and husband Dan Osborne.

"Leaving my babies to go into the jungle was the HARDEST thing I have ever had to do, and every single day I thought about them,” she added. “Some may criticise me for leaving them, that’s okay. You won’t understand my reasons, but I want to create a better life for them.

“I want to be able to be at home and work, have date nights and family nights,” she continued, before clarifying that, ultimately, she went into the jungle for herself and it’s “an experience [she] will never forget.”

"I learnt so much and have become and even better mummy for it,” she concluded.
