JACQUELINE Jossa has shared her despair at sunbathers ignoring lockdown rules, saying: "If you don't have a garden, tough."

The 27-year-old actress took to her Instagram page to lash out at Brits avoiding social-distancing regulations amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The former EastEnders star also admitted that her daughters, five-year-old Ella and Mia, one, are becoming "stressed" due to the huge lifestyle changes.

Posting a video from her own garden, Jacqueline shared: "Just stay indoors. Just because it's hot outside, if you haven't got a garden it's one of them things, tough!

"Maybe do your one day exercise and take a walk or something, just stay indoors.

"Otherwise, we're going to be doing this for f*****g ages. I read somewhere someone was having a house party, oh my God.

"There should be stricter rules for people that are that f*****g stupid to have house parties when we are in the state that we're in."

She continued: "Have people just forgot that we're going through all of this?

"You can't go around your mates house, you can't have big family groups, you can't have barbecues with 20 people, just stay in your own homes with the people yourself-isolating with."

Later, the brunette beauty revealed that she'd faced backlash for advising people to stay indoors from the comfort of her garden.

Hitting back at the critics, Jacqueline snapped: "I'm really done with people on Instagram DM'ing saying stupid stuff like: 'Oh my God, easy for you to say in your garden.' Yeah, I'm in my garden.

"I understand people in flats with kids and stuff, it's really hard. I understand it's hard but it's doable. Otherwise, we'll be doing this for months and months.

"If you're in a flat and you're like: 'The kids are driving me mad, I've got to get out', just go for a walk, no one is saying you can't go for a walk, go get some fresh air.

"Just don't go to the park and let your kids play with other people's kids. Don't go on playdates, stuff like that. I know it's hard.

"I have a house with a garden and it's hard. But we have the easy job, we're not on the front lines trying to save people's lives."

Jacqueline, who is married to Dan Osborne, added: "We all want to go out, we all have kids that are worried and stressed and don't realise why they can't go to the shops.

"My kids are five and one and they don't understand it, yes they are getting stressed. I completely understand it.

"Whether it's a one bed flat, a studio or a mansion, just stay indoors.

"Then everyone can have a big massive party when this is eventually, hopefully, all over."

The rule-breakers clearly hit a nerve with Jacqueline today, as the mum-of-two took to Instagram for a third time to brand those who have used today's sunny weather as an excuse to break isolation rules "d***heads".

She ranted: "Whoever went to the beach, or the park for a picnic surrounded by other people, strangers… You are d***heads!

"There are people that haven't met grandchildren yet, people that are avoiding their elderly relatives that will never ever get this time back.

"We have been asked to do one thing, to keep each other and our families safe and thousands of people that fancied a trip to the beach are here to ruin it.

"I am so disappointed. I miss my mum and dad, my family and my friends, my little nieces and nephews so much. It hurts.

"I stay indoors because I care about us all and our future. Some people are just t***s aren't they?"
