The Only Way Is Essex's Dan Osborne hinted at his rumoured relationship split with Jacqueline Jossa last night, admitting that recent times have been "stressful".

TOWIE star Dan and EastEnders actress Jacqueline are expecting their first baby together but it is thought they have broken up following a series of cryptic tweets.

Dan first sparked rumours after telling his followers last month: "Relationships just do not seem to work.."

This weekend, Jacqueline took to Twitter and told fans she felt "pushed into a corner". She then described Dan as her "best friend" in a separate tweet, before later deleting it.

Last night, Dan appeared in the TOWIE Christmas special - The Only Way Is Essexmas. It was the first time he has appeared on camera since the rumours surfaced.

Hinting at his relationship dramas, Dan explained to friends James 'Lockie' Lock and Ricky Rayment that life has been tough lately.

When asked how he was, Dan - who was dressed as Santa - sighed and replied: "It's always going to be stressful. Do you know what I mean? I've got one kid, I've got another on the way. There's a lot going on."

Dan then briefly smiled as he patted his Father Christmas padding and joked: "There's a third baby coming!"

Looking serious, he added: "You've just got to crack on with it, haven't you?"

Although Dan and Jacqueline began dating in 2013, they soon split after it emerged he was expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend. In December, Dan and his ex welcomed son Teddy into the world.

By June of this year, rumours began circulating that Dan and Jacqueline had rekindled their romance and by August they had announced their pregnancy news, saying they were "thrilled".

Earlier this week, Jacqueline told fans how excited she is about meeting her son or daughter, who is due in February.

A rep for the EastEnders star has meanwhile told Reveal she has no comment to make on the split rumours. Dan's rep is also not commenting.
