Jacqueline Jossa and her daughters have flown back to the UK before Portugal goes onto the amber list.

The actress told her Instagram followers that she made it home with her daughters Ella, six, and Mia, two, "safe and sound" but said her youngest was a bit "temperamental" on the "long old flight".

And she said: "For those asking, Portugal was absolutely fine. You have to wear your masks everywhere. Obviously you have to get tested there, get tested on your way back and get tested here. You have to show all of your stuff as well.

"It doesn't go into the amber list until Tuesday so we don't have to quarantine. We've done all our tests and everything was negative so we're all good."

She went on to say the airports were "super, super busy" as members of the public flocked back to the UK ahead of Tuesday's change.

"It was like crazy," she said. "The girls were actually really good considering, when I look back and think how long the queues were they were really good."

The EastEnders star had been away for a week of sunshine with her two daughters, while husband Dan Osborne joined them for four days of the trip.

In an Q&A session on her Instagram Stories on Sunday night, the former I'm A Celeb… winner also appeared to shoot down one follower who questioned why the family went on holiday during a pandemic.

When one fans questioned her thoughts on the restrictions being lifted following the Covid pandemic, she replied: "Hurry up!

"I'm a bit sceptical, I think they will push it back again for another mad reason. It's been way too long now, we need to get back to normal life."

She continued: "I'm grateful for the lifting we have had so far, it's been lovely to see family inside and in gardens etc. It's just crazy to think any of this has even happened. My mind is blown."
