The brunette beauty layered her stylish look with a black jacket and slipped her feet into a pair of suede cowboy boots. 

She opted for a simple palette of make-up while her dark tresses cascaded past her shoulders.  

Meanwhile Jake, 50, donned a black football kit and chatted to his former co-star before the game. 

Their characters faced much drama during their time on the soap from Lauren uncovering Max’s affair with his daughter-in-law Stacey (Lacey Turner) to her struggles with alcoholism.

It is not known how much Jacqueline paid herself from the overall profits.

MailOnline has contacted Jacqueline’s representatives for comment.

Jacqueline has been renovating her £1.2million Essex mansion with her husband Dan Osborne, after splashing out on the six-bedroom property last year.

It comes after Jacqueline revealed she was forced to sell her old house after ‘struggling with money’ following her exit from EastEnders in 2018.

Earlier this year, she confessed she wasn’t ’embarrassed or ashamed’ to share her money woes, because she landed some ‘amazing opportunities’ after her stint on I’m A Celebrity the following year.

Speaking to Sam and Billie Faiers on their podcast The Sam and Billie Show, Jacqueline explained it came as a huge shock when she lost her steady salary by leaving EastEnders.

Jacqueline said: ‘You’re right about the hustle. I was on EastEnders for eight years where you got a set pay cheque every week.

‘It was a set pay cheque and I didn’t have to do anything else. It was my comfort blanket, it was what I knew. Then it just wasn’t.

‘There’s no such thing for me as maternity pay, so when I had kids I had to leave and I had to do magazine covers to make money to feed my kids.’ 

Family: Jacqueline, who shares daughters Ella, seven, and Mia, three with TOWIE star Dan, moved into their 'forever home' last year
