Jacqueline Jossa has said she'd like more kids, but for now she'll be focusing on her career and daughter Ella.

The EastEnders actress told Loose Women that after giving birth to her first child in February last year she was adamant she'd be adding to her brood before long.

But she's now changed her plans…

Jac explained: "As soon as she was born I was like, 'This mum thing is so easy! I could have four!' Now I'm like, maybe I'll slow down a little bit, get back to work, get back on my feet. I'll have four, but I'm young."

The panel also pointed out her fiancé Dan Osborne has a second child, son Teddy. "There is two already," agreed Jac. "I do want more but maybe not yet."

Jacqueline, 23, is gearing up to return to EastEnders as Lauren Branning following maternity leave, and confessed it was going to be hard leaving Ella at home while she's working.

"That will be the hardest," she said. "That's why I took a year off. Daniel, my mum, my sister, whoever can [will take her]. We're really lucky. She will be absolutely fine. I think she's a bit sick of me because we spend 24 hours a day with each other! As soon as someone comes through the door she's off!"
