Dan Osborne is flying to Australia amid claims his wife Jacqueline Jossa has threatened to quit I’m A Celebrity after hearing inside information about his alleged affair with Love Island’s Gabby Allen.
The former TOWIE star took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday morning to confirm he’s visiting the ex-EastEnders star in the jungle – alongside their children Ella, four, Mia, 17 months, and his son Teddy, five – in the wake of the shock reports.
The 28-year-old reality star’s post comes as he slammed Jacqueline’s campmate Myles Stephenson in an online comment after the Rak-Su singer reportedly spilled the beans in unaired scenes about Dan’s ‘affair’ with Myles’ ex Gabby.

Brushing off the recent reports, Dan shared a selfie from the plane with the caption ‘We’re coming’, adding a love heart emoji.
The night before Dan had made no mention of the explosive claims, telling his fans in a video: ‘My Stories I won’t be doing for the next couple of nights because I’m making my way to Australia. We’re all going out there to be there for when Jac comes out of the jungle.
‘We’re all excited, it’s going to be lovely. We are looking forward to seeing her. I don’t think she’s going to be out anytime soon. I think she will get to the final – at least.
‘I think she should win it – that’s my opinion, I’m going to be a little bit biased. I know a lot of you think the same. She’s going to be at the final.’
Revealing he had completed his ‘list of jobs’ around the house left for him by Jacqueline before she flew out for the show, including putting up the family Christmas tree, Dan was in great spirits as he looked forward to his trip Down Under.

Claims: Dan and Gabby and were hit with romance rumours last year, which they both strenuously denied, and later appeared on Celebrity Big Brother together in August 2018
However, what Dan commented online was a different story, slamming Myles in a scathing message.
One fan wrote: ‘YOU gutted everyone is rooting for Myles n Jacqueline to get together???’
Dan replied: ‘I find it funny.. she would not be attracted to myles even if she was single, no kids, no nothing lol. He can try all he wants though, bless.’
This comes after Jacqueline reportedly threatened to quit over Myles’ explosive allegations about her husband’s alleged affair with Love Island beauty Gabby last year.
The Sun claims the actress was ‘hysterical’ following Myles’ admission and refused to carry on with the ITV show without speaking to Dan.
The publication reports that, in unaired footage, show bosses allowed her to temporarily leave the jungle so that she could contact her husband of two years.

It’s said that mum-of-two Jacqueline was allowed to leave a voicemail for the former TOWIE hunk and that he left one for her in return.
It’s said that producers believed that as that as long as the couple didn’t directly speak to each other, then it wouldn’t put her at an unfair advantage to her camp mates.
A source told The Sun: ‘Jacqueline was beside herself after Myles told her what he believed. She was nothing short of hysterical.
‘Jacqueline has been fantastic to watch so producers really wanted to avoid a situation where she walked out.
‘But equally they were very conscious about a duty of care towards her and had to consider her mental state.’
They added that after exchanging voicemails, the star was ‘offered the chance’ top remain on the show, which she ‘accepted’.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for all parties for comment.

There has long been rumours of infidelity as Dan was accused of cheating with Love Island star Gabby during a holiday in Marbella in April 2018, which both stars have strenuously denied.
At the time Jacqueline was pregnant with her second child, with Dan having temporarily moved out of their family home.
It was recently reported that Jacqueline had contacted Gabby around the time of the cheat rumours, asking if she had slept with her husband.
Speaking to The Sun about the claim, Dan said: ‘Jacqueline has sent a few messages to women I’ve been accused of cheating with — I think any partner would do that — asking what had happened between us.
‘I’ve told her I haven’t cheated on her, that I’ve just been out with those girls, they’re mates and that’s it.
‘I’m a friendly person so I’ll go out and speak to people I get on with, male or female. That’s just what I’m like.’
In March, Gabby revealed her friendship with fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Dan was over, following claims he had kissed Love Island’s Alexandra Cane during a night out – a rumour both parties have firmly denied.

Describing the situation as a ‘mess’, Gabby went on to say that she hoped for the sake of both Dan and his partner that the allegations were false.
Revealing they hadn’t spoken since appearing on the reality show, she said: ‘Jacq and her family are much more important than me and Dan being mates.’
Describing Dan as a ‘nice guy’, Gabby said she hoped for the sake of Dan and Jacqueline’s relationship that the allegations were false.
She told The Sun: ‘I just think – I really hope it didn’t happen because it’s so s**t to have that hanging over your head and people thinking that you’re a homewrecker when you didn’t do anything.
‘I hope for both their sake’s it didn’t happen. And for Jossa’s sake.’
Jacqueline and Dan married in 2017 and live in Jacqueline’s Kent house. The couple share two daughters, Mia and Ella, four.
Ahead of her stint in the jungle, Jacqueline told how she didn’t want to be perceived as a ‘pushover’ or a ‘doormat’ amid rumours surrounding her marriage.
The mother-of-two explained: ‘I think people think I am a pushover or a doormat. I also think some people pity me.
‘I want to show I am fine, I am up for a laugh and that I will go for it and try my best. It’s going to be so difficult going in as me and that’s definitely going to be the hardest part.’
