Jacqueline Jossa has defended her recent holiday to Portugal after being questioned on her decision to go abroad. 

It comes as the country is set to be removed from the government's travel green list and placed on the amber list, which means tourists should not visit the country and must isolate for 10 days upon their return. 

Jossa, 28, returned home on Sunday with daughters Mia and Ella and went on to do a Q&A session on her Instagram page, where she was asked about why she went on holiday. 

She replied: "Because it was okay to do so… I was aloud (sic)… mad I have to say was aloud (sic)… like countries now have traffic life (sic) systems. Mad. I wanted to, my life my choice.

"All the procedures where (sic) in place, was complete (sic) safe. All negative tests and forms filled in! Don't worry my hun."

The I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! winner also shared in the Q&A session that husband Dan Osbourne had joined the family on the holiday for four days. 

She had also previously said in a video to her Instagram Stories that they had tested negative for Covid.

"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 said. 

The mother-of-two went on to say the airport was "super super busy" ahead of Portugal being removed from the green list on Tuesday.
