Jacqueline Jossa and husband Dan Osborne have begun preparations for their “forever home” as they look towards a fresh start.

Jacqueline toasted to “new beginnings” on Instagram last week and told her army of fans: “"WE GOT THE KEYS. We have waited a while but we picked up the keys to our forever home.”

She added: “It needs some tender loving care, a lick of paint and some tweaks. I love love love it so much. I’m so proud."

Insiders say that the couple are hoping the move will mark a “new start” for their family after a rocky last year with Dan admitting he had “done things I shouldn’t have done.”

A source told new! magazine: “It’s a new start. It’s a project they can do together, create that family home and try to push away all the negativity that comes from the past.

“It’s all just a good positive start for them both. You move house to start afresh and they can get away from all the bad memories.”

Jacqueline moved out temporarily last summer saying she was “struggling” at home and sought out therapy.

She said at the time: “I had really been struggling (haven’t we all!?) lately and, as I said the other day, I’ve just needed some time and breathing space.”

“I felt like there was a lot of pressure on me. I couldn’t be in the same house as Dan. Therapy is a really good thing.”

The source added: ““Dan and Jacqueline have opened up about the past and got it off their chests."

“It’s all about trying to move from the old behaviours and into something new. With the pandemic, it either makes you or breaks you because you’re spending a lot more time with your loved one. Dan and Jacqueline feel that despite everything, this has made them.”

The couple are now starting the process of the renovating their new house.

Jacqueline recently shared videos of the £1 million house undergoing the first steps of a makeover.

Posting on her Instagram she shared: "So I'm at the new house. So this is the flooring at the present, but the walls have all been painted now and the skirting's been done.

"We're having carpets up here because we're used to carpets and think it's cosier.

"I do like the look of wood floors but we're cosy people at heart, you know when you've just gotten out of the shower. You want to feel the warmth on your tootsies!

"I mean it's all cracking on. We've got the painters up there on whatever that is called.

"They're ripping up the floorboards already. It doesn't look like much has happened.

"I reckon we're going to need about a million skips."

Dan and Jacqueline tied the knot in 2017 and are parents to two daughters Ella, five and Mia, two.
