While she left the soap to pursue other interests, Jacqueline did say she would never rule out a possible return to EastEnders. In an interview with the Daily Star last year, Jacqueline said if she did return, it would have to be at a time that was right for the soap and would also have to be right for her.
At that stage, she said it was too soon to return and that Lauren Branning was not necessarily missed by EastEnders fans.
Jossa, 27, has now got fans excited by hinting that she could make a comeback to EastEnders to reprise her role as Lauren Brannon now her stint on I’m a Celebrity is over. She headed to Instagram to make a cryptic post, telling fans and followers that they might see Laura returning to the soap soon.

Eastenders Spoilers: Jacqueline at the National Television Awards
During January, Jacqueline showed her excitement while reuniting with her castmates from EastEnders. Also, Jake Wood spoke to Digital Spy recently, saying he would love to have his on-screen daughter Lauren back on the show. He added that the door is always open for Lauren’s return to EastEnders.
The way Jake put it was that Lauren has not been killed off, and Max is still on the soap, as well as a lot of other on-screen family. Jake said that like any other character that has left the soap, the door is always open for their return if it suits the storyline.
Wood said he has always believed she would eventually return, but Jacqueline needed some time to be a mother at home and he believes it is up to Jossa as to when she would be ready to return. He ended by saying he thinks Jacqueline is a great actress and a “real asset to the show,” and that it would be great if she reprised her role on EastEnders.
