Jacqueline Jossa is not wearing her wedding ring on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here amid the offscreen drama surrounding her marriage.
The EastEnders actress wore her wedding band from husband Dan Osborne during the first episode of the ITV show, even when she was completing the high-rise plank challenge, but over the past week Jacqueline has removed the band.
Meanwhile Jacqueline’s husband Dan touched down in Australia on Wednesday and broke his silence on the claims he cheated with Gabby Allen, the ex girlfriend of Jacqueline’s I’m A Celeb campmate Myles Stephenson.

Speaking out: Meanwhile Jacqueline’s husband Dan and their two daughters touched down in Australia on Wednesday. The star wrote a supportive message for his wife on Instagram
Dan shared photos on Instagram of his flight to Australia with the couple’s daughters Mia, 17 months, and Ella, four, and wrote a supportive message for his wife of two years once they landed in Brisbane.
‘Just landed in Oz! I seriously can’t wait to see their little faces when they see mummy obviously Mia hasn’t got a clue bless her!’
‘I’ll try to video the moment keep smashing it @jacjossa we are here waiting for you when you get out,’ wrote the ex TOWIE star.
He had posted an Instagram story hours earlier from the second leg of his flight, with the message: ‘Don’t believe everything you read.’

On Tuesday it was revealed that Jacqueline’s campmate Myles had confided in the actress off camera that he believed his ex Gabby Allen had an affair with Dan last year.
Jacqueline’s fellow married campmates have been pictured wearing their wedding rings, with James Haskell using a ring guard to protect his band during the Bushtucker Trials, but Jacqueline has removed her diamond band, possibly sending a signal to Dan amid the cheating claims.
A show insider has told MailOnline that Jacqueline has taken her wedding ring off because she doesn’t want it to get lost or damaged.
Jacqueline reportedly threatened to quit I’m A Celeb after Rak-Su singer Myles took her aside in the jungle to claim that Dan had a fling with Love Island star Gabby in April 2018 – something both parties have always strenuously denied.

An insider has now told MailOnline that Myles isn’t just partaking in ‘idle gossip’ and strongly believes the allegations to be true, deciding to share what he knows with Jacqueline as a friend after she persistently grilled him.
A source close to Myles told MailOnline: ‘He wouldn’t have said anything unless he believed it to be true. He’s not someone to idly gossip.
‘Jacqueline kept grilling him on the claims and outright asked him several times. He tried to palm her off but she eventually pulled him to one side and insisted he told her what he knows. He didn’t want to be pulled into it.’
Off: Jacqueline may have removed her ring to avoid damaging it during the trials
Jacqueline, 27, was said to be ‘hysterical’ after the off-camera confession and refused to carry on with the ITV show without speaking to Dan.
Dan was accused of cheating with Love Island star Gabby during a holiday in Marbella in April 2018, which both stars have strenuously denied.
Cheating doesn’t necessarily have to mean sleeping with one another, but could relate to some level of extra-marital intimacy.

At the time Jacqueline was pregnant with her second child, and Dan had temporarily moved out of their family home.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for all parties for comment.
Myles and Gabby, who began dating in September 2018, had an acrimonious split in August after she accused him of cheating and lying to her.
This reportedly included text messages to an ex, this week revealed to be Rebecca Bignell, who he dated from 2016 until 2017.

The former X Factor star denied ever cheating on Gabby and even suggested that she has over-reacted amid the fallout from their break-up.
Speaking ahead of his I’m A Celebrity stint, the singer claimed that he only texted his ex-girlfriend and insisted that he and Gabby were not even together at the time.
Myles then went on to say that it was a ‘stupid mistake’ to text his ex, telling The Sun he ‘stopped speaking’ to her by the time he rekindled things with the Love Island beauty, but by that time, she had already told Gabby they were talking.
Since being in the jungle, Gabby is thought to have been ‘bombarded’ with claims of Myles ‘cheating’ on her during their relationship, and took to social media to hit out at him.
Alongside a photo of Myles’ face photoshopped onto a leopard, she wrote: ‘OMG I’m dead. I’m not even watching the show but people are sending me things like this.
Saying meet “meaningful Milo”. Apparently he was on about ‘meaningful relationships’. I’m not sure the guy knows what he’s on about tbh.
‘I didn’t know cheating, lying and a whole load of other [poo emoji] came under “meaningful”. Who knows? Each to their own.’
Drama: The Sun claims Jacqueline was ‘hysterical’ following Myles’ admission and refused to carry on with the ITV show without speaking to Dan
Gabby also ‘liked’ some tweets about Myles, including one that said ‘Watching Myles in the jungle chat about trying to find meaningful relationships when I know he did the dirty on my girl @gabbydawnallen’.
She previously admitted she wouldn’t be watching her ex-boyfriend Myles during his stint on I’m A Celebrity.
This comes after The Sun claimed Jacqueline 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’.
Dan has thus far made no mention of the alleged communication with his wife, but revealed that he is flying out to Australia on Tuesday to greet Jacqueline when she leaves the jungle.
Just last week, he hit out at ‘boring’ infidelity rumours in an interview with heat magazine.
It was recently reported that Jacqueline had contacted Gabby around the time of the cheating 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, 17 months, 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.’
