Sadly, after becoming a mother in February of last year and since welcoming daughter Ella into the world, the TV star has received some entirely outrageous comments about her post-baby figure.

We know, we know. Simply ridiculous.

Reportedly speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Jacqueline shares: ‘Nowadays you have to go on Twitter to see what people like and what people don’t like. If someone makes a fair comment then I’ll think ‘OK, cool, that’s what they think’.

But Jacqueline then added, ‘But I try not to pay attention to comments about the way I look. I’ve had people saying, ‘She looks pregnant again, maybe she is having baby number two’.

‘I’d like those people to know I’m not having another baby. So screw you’.

This year the 24-year-old confessed that she wasn’t feeling all that body confident, which made us pretty sad.
In fact, having scooped the prize for ‘Sexiest Female’ at the Inside Soap Awards, she took the opportunity to point out how much the boost meant for her.
Jacqueline said, ‘I would have been embarrassed before…But now it’s lovely. Winning an award for being sexy means quite a lot when you’ve had a baby and you’re not confident any more. It was a shock and I was so happy’.

We think everyone should learn to love their bodies.
