'Heartbroken' Jacqueline Jossa has ‘tears in her eyes' as daughter Ella, 5, goes back to school today after lockdown

JACQUELINE Jossa struggled to say goodbye to her oldest daughter as she went back to school today.

The I'm A Celeb winner, 27, and her husband Daniel Osborne had a "tear in their eye" as they dropped off Ella, five.

It was their daughter's first day at year one, as students across the country return to school after lockdown.

Jac beamed with pride as she stood alongside her little girl who wore a black puffy jacket over her blue school uniform.

The former Eastenders star wore a denim jacket over a long pink shirt, black jeans and boots.

Her former Towie husband opted for a more casual look in an Arsenal zip-up jacket and grey shorts.

Jac shared the heartwarming pics on Instagram and added a post letting fans know how she was coping.

She wrote: "Year 1 we are ready for you!"

"I am so proud of her. Golly gosh! It’s so hard to let her go, we have had such a lovely time all together as a family, we needed this time all together and it’s been amazing.

"Ella has been so brilliant during the whole of lockdown and really grown, she’s so much braver, stronger and confident. She was ready for today."

Jac and Dan had brought their other daughter Mia, two, along to say goodbye to her sister.

The toddler "had a little cry" when she had to leave her big sister at school to go home.

"Mia had a little cry because she doesn’t ever have to say goodbye to her sister, usually where Ella goes, Mia goes," Jac wrote.

"That breaks my heart a little. Mummy and daddy had a little tear in their eye😂 so proud!!!!!

"We love you Ella, It’s different in the house now and I can’t wait to pick you up😌"

Jac also took to her Instagram stories to reach out to other parents who might be struggling with saying goodbye to their kids.

She said: "That's the school run done. A little watery-eyed, Mia cried her eyes out. 

"Ella was fine, Ella went in she was really good I'm so proud of her, no tears. She was really ready for it really proud of her. 

"Me and Dan waved her off and stared through the window for a while Mia had a little cry bless her.

"I didn't like it I'm not gonna lie, I'm gonna miss her.

She added later: "It's really scary them going back to school, I hope everybody has had the best first day they could possible.

"I know it can be hard… but obviously you have to leave them. That's hard but good for you."
