Emily Atack, 29 – who is best known for her role on The Inbetweeners and, more recently, on the ITV series, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – has opened up about her dating life as she admitted there is a special someone who “she thinks about”. The actress had previously set her sights on football pundit Jamie Redknapp, 45, after she made the surprising admission to his dad Harry Redknapp, 71, whilst Down Under. Now the jungle goddess has since moved on but admitted she is still single. Speaking in The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, the actress revealed: “I had a snog on Sunday and it was nice.
“I am absolutely single, but there is someone I think about and like. I’ve no idea what it will turn into yet.
“I’m so excited to see what this year will bring and my sole focus is work and my friendships, moving into my new place and getting my life together so when the opportunity for a relationship does come up, I’ll be completely ready for it.”
Since the star revealed she fancied Jamie, the Sky Sports pundit was quizzed on Talksport’s Alan Brazil Breakfast show and was asked by his former teammate Dean Saunders whether he had considered taking Emily on date.
The star laughed and responded: “Ah come on Deano. Leave it out.
“Listen, she’s a very nice girl, isn’t she? Let’s leave it at that.”
Jamie had also previously described Emily as “sweet” to The Sun after she asked Harry to set them up.
But it seemingly appeared her advances went unnoticed as she revealed she is currently single.
The former Inbetweeners star ended her five-year relationship with Jack Vacher prior to heading into the Australian jungle.
Meanwhile, the actress took to Instagram to wish her fellow jungle castmate birthday wishes.
In view of her 1.2 million followers, Emily uploaded a throwback snap of herself with This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, 38, who celebrated her birthday yesterday.
She captioned the post: “Happy birthday you lovely lass! @hollywilloughby.”
In the photo, the two blonde beauties smiled for the camera as Holly held a glass in her hand.
The message comes after the birthday girl was also in the jungle last year, after she temporarily replaced Ant McPartlin on the show.
Fans flocked to comment on the sweet snap, as one person said: “Wow, hottest pic on Instagram.”
Another person commented: “Combo my dream, love you both x.”(sic)
While a third person added: “You both look lovely.”
