TV Season & Spoilers recently brought to you the exciting update of actress Jacqueline Jossa returning to EastEnders as Lauren Branning. However, it seems shortly ahead of her return, the popular soap actress has landed in a major controversy. With the Christmas season fast approaching, Jacqueline took to Instagram to share some festive themed photos with her family in a massive Manor. The cosy family photos feature her alongside her husband and daughter having fun around a Christmas tree at home.
However, fans were quick to point out that the massive manor in the EastEnders stars photos and videos is not her real home. In fact, it is actually Hutton Hall in Essex that some fans accused Jacqueline to be passing off as her own residence. But is that really true? Perhaps not entirely! Sue, the manor indeed is Hutton Hall. But, the pictures and the clips on the actress’ Instagram happens to be a promotional shoot for her line of festive jammies! Some other supportive fans pointed out that Jacqueline does many photo shoots at the Manor to feature her collection.
