EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa has opened a TATTOO PARLOUR with her TOWIE star husband after leaving the soap.
Jacqueline, 24, who plays long suffering Lauren Branning in the top BBC soap, and 26-year-old Dan Osborne launched Ink Paradise with a party for family and friends.
The shop opened for business in Bexleyheath, south east London, near where Jacqueline grew up, and the actress will soon be looking for work after show bosses announced she is leaving EastEnders at Christmas.
Dan, who has previously tattooed Arsenal footballer Theo Walcott. will work alongside other tattoo artists in the store.
He tied the knot with Jacqueline, twice voted sexist female in the annual Inside Soap Awards, in June this year, and the couple have a two-year-old daughter together.
Ryan Osborne, Dan’s brother, said: “The opening has been really good, the first day was really busy which is great.
“We have had a few good tattoos booked in and a lot of inquiries from people all over, as far as Scotland so that’s great.
“We are doing walk-ins at the moment as our books have only just opened.”
He added: “It has a good vibe, we want people to be comfortable when getting a tattoo.”
It was confirmed earlier this month that Jacqueline would be leaving EastEnders after seven years alongside on screen sister Lorna Fitzgerald.
