The report comes a year after Jessica controversially pulled out of Nine’s Bad Mothers one month before it began filming last October.   

In a statement to 9Honey, the actress’ management announced at the time: ‘Jessica has decided to step away from acting for the remainder of 2018 to focus on her health and spend time with her family.’

‘She is disappointed that she will not be a part of the Bad Mothers production with such an incredible cast and team behind it, but knows that it is important to take time out to maintain ongoing balance and wellbeing.’
