They put on a loved-up display during their recent romantic break in Dubai, proving they’re sticking to their vow to make a fresh start. It came after Dan Osborne denied claims he’d had a threesome with his former CBB co-stars, Chloe Ayling and Natalie Nunn – allegations that overshadowed wife Jacqueline Jossa’s I’m A Celeb! win in December.

But more trouble could be on the horizon for the couple, as insiders tell Closer how Jacqueline, 27, has been approached to replace Michelle Keegan as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in Our Girl after the former Corrie star announced earlier this month she was stepping down to “spend more time at home.”

And pals say Jacqueline – who has Ella, four, and Mia, one – with Dan, 28, is conflicted about the role of a lifetime on the hit BBC show because of its gruelling filming schedule, which has previously seen the cast based in Malaysia and South Africa for more than three months at a time.

A source says, “Dubai was just what they needed to reconnect after a rocky couple of months, but when Jac got the call inviting her to audition for Our Girl, it created some tension.

Given that they were living in a freezing cold Welsh castle rather than the Australian jungle, it's no surprise that last year's I'm A Celeb stars gave us far less shower scenes than usual. However, we still got this gem from Jordan North and Shane Richie who decided to save water and shower together.

WATCH Amy Hart reveals texts with Amber Gill on watching Love Island 'knowing how it all works'

“It’s Jac’s dream job since leaving EastEnders, and she’s so excited, but she’s torn, because she won’t want to be away from her kids for that long. Also, she’s worried about the pressure that working away would put on her and Dan. It would force her into a double life – one of a working actress filming overseas and the other as the loving wife and mother back in the UK.”

Jacqueline and Dan have weathered numerous storms throughout their two-and-a-half-year marriage,including claims Dan cheated with Love Island stars Gabby Allen, 26, and Alexandra Cane, 28 – which he’s denied – and they are said to be aware of the pressure the new role would put on their relationship.

The source says, “They’ve only just got back to a good place and Jac doesn’t want trust issues resurfacing, or infidelity claims to crop up again. And with her being away, she knows that will only make the rumours worse. Of course it’s still early days and the role is by no means certain, but it’s made her think about things.

“Dan has expressed his concern about how the family would cope without her and worries it could mess up what they’ve worked so hard for. He wants to be supportive of Jac, but they’re both aware she’d struggle to cope away from the girls, so she says she’ll carefully weigh up all the options.”
